Great deli menu, sandwiches, burgers, pizza, fries, onion rings. All food made fresh when you order it. They have an awesome beverage cooler that is self service that includes beer! They also had brownies and cakes wrapped at the counter so if you're full you can grab one to go. This may be our new beer & pizza stop in... More

If you are looking for a good deli, this is your place. The burgers are great, and the sandwiches are always a good choice too. The food is always fresh, and the staff is amazing.

All the food here is delicious. Love the Cheeseburgers and fries. Love the idea that you grab your drinks from a cooler or use the fountain. They have good beer selection and its cold beer. Pizza are great and so are the steak in a sack. Prices a little higher than other places, but food is always hot and delicious.

This place is hands down the best deli in Oak Ridge. Burgers are excellent and the other sandwiches are quiet tasty. Billy's Time Out Deli is a staple in this town. No frills or fancy names. This place specializes in delicious, including Steak-in-a-Sack and Shaurama, one of my favorites. And I hear the pizza isn't bad either.

This place as excellent sandwiches. Sometimes the wait is a little long, but it is well worth the wait. The location is ideal for stopping in since it is near hotels, shopping and the museum.

Billy's is known for the steak in a sack and the chicken in the sack, they also make great burgers myself the pizzas are the best they only make them after 5pm but it is worth stopping by and the chess bars are to die for

As stated by others, this place has been in Oak Ridge for a long time. It's still busy because it serves great food. I'd like to say that I've tried a lot of their sandwiches, but I had their Double Cheese burger 20 years ago when I first went there and it's so amazing that I never get anything else.... More

This is a great local place for a sub sandwich. It is better than the chain places. It's an older place, been there forever. It's always been good and still is. BON APITITE
