we were seated fast. Food was a bit slow arriving but it was good. Too full to try any desserts even though they sounded good.

We love Billy Bob's. It is so hard to choose what to have because the menu has so many things we want to eat. The BBQ is wonderful! The brisket is my favorite. Tuesday is Wing Night, so we try to get there every Tuesday when wings are 50 cents each. It is a wonderful way to try different flavors.... More

I've had the food here, the barbecue isn't bad. I want to say that I am not usually a complainer, but this got me upset! It was Father's Day and I called well ahead (half hour) to order to two 1/2 chickens for my wife and I. I arrived at 7:10 to pick up my order; not ready yet. 7:20?... More

The loaded nachos with bbq chicken are amazing! This is definitely comfort food. Nothing healthy on the menu, but the food is amazing and you get huge portions.

Waitress in dining area was nice enough but horrible at her job...no check in on drinks no check in on water stop by once and that was it . Slow slow slow...waitress in bar area was better and not her area. Well food was good so if that's all that matters to you go here.

Server very pleasant, friendly, tho she was a bit busy. Ordered dinner, waited 25-30 min. Mac n cheese was ok, a bit underseasoned and dry. Rack of baby back ribs was tender , not seasoned at all. BBQork sliders were awesome !!!!!! Bang bang shrimp was yummy! Catfish was delicious, not greasy. We will try again.

I took a group here for lunch yesterday, there were 27 of us. Normally with a group this size you'd here some complaints. Not here, everyone was extremely satisfied. The only "complaint" was they were stuffed and didn't want to go back to work. This place has a great recipe and is very consistent in every dish they have. The... More

Good, tasty BBQ, especially the brisket. Huge portions. Classic American bar experience. Friendly service. Nice! No idea if a place like this is totally commonplace or not in USA. But for a Brit it was a really good experience and not like anything back home. 3.5/5 if we could split the score.

Located near Vassar College in the Arlington area of Poughkeepsie, Billy Bob's has excellent BBQ. The brisket is awesome! We enjoy Tuesday wing night, but we try to get there early because it fills up quickly and there is limited area to stand and wait for a table. They have dining in both the dining area as well as at... More
