This review is for the burgers (same location), honestly not sure if the bbq part is open anymore. We meet my mom here for a burger every time we're in town and are never disappointed. Friendly staff and great burgers, I hear the other items on the menu are great as well. I always get the giant heart attack burger... More

Stopped off with my dad. We both had a BLT burger with cheese and the works. A 1/2 pound cheeseburger with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion etc. The bun was very fresh. A good enough burger to make a return visit.

We mainly pick something up to eat at Billy Bob's when we drive back home from a trip to San Antonio. After a day of being out and about you can't go wrong with picking up a really good burger.

We support local business and would rather eat local while traveling. We stopped here based on reviews on the way home from garner state park. When we tried to order they told us they were cash only which was a pain, but at least I had cash. They messed up our order and didn't give us drinks until after the... More

Food was very good. Husband ordered the triple heart attack burger loaded - huge, I had the catfish basket - 2 good size fillet fingers & we both had onion rings, delicious, but little greasy. Atmosphere was very laid back, wooden benches etc. Order @ the front window inside. They suggest you order from their website. Our experience overall was... More

Grew up getting burgers and root beer here after church. Even after growing up this place remains my favorite for both burgers and fries.

The burger with jalapeño was excellent. The fries were crisp and fresh. The service was friendly and quick. The catfish was also ordered by one of our group and he enjoyed it very much. Excellent value for the price.

I have several clients in Hondo & often grab a bite to eat for the ride home. Billy Bob's is a very reliable good, "home cooked" hamburger joint, but I am partial to their fried catfish. Can't say the same for their fries, though. While they appear to be fresh sliced potatoes, they are too soft & greasy for me... More

If you like Burgers, and passing through Hondo Texas, I would stop at Billy Bob's again, the heart attack was a little too much for me but it did consist of 4 patties total weight they say is 1 lb, cooked weight, I would tend to say that is CONSERVATIVE, Comes with bacon and every thing else including cheese placed...

We drove through Hondo on our way home from a Girl Scout Camp. My friend thought their Strawberry milkshake rocked. I don't usually eat onion rings- but loved theirs! The chopped BBQ sandwich was a little too sweet. She liked her Catfish. I would go back!
