I hadn't been to Bill's in awhile and wanted to see if things were as good as before--they were! I've never ordered any of the plates but rather took home meat by the pound. Although the ribs and sausage are excellent, the brisket is my favorite. You can get it lean or marbled--get the marbled! In other places this means... More

Smoky and tender pulled pork. It was tender and juicy - not dry at all. The sausage is smoky and savory. The sides were all good. Potato salad was also one of the best I have tasted.The ladies serving it up when we visited were friendly and quick and offered a frozen mug for the beet. Wish we had been... More

Meat was tender, loaded with plenty of mesquite flavor. The ribs were delicious as was the pulled pork. Potato salad was yummy. For dessert we had the buttermilk pie, something new to both of us. It was very good.

We have eaten there several times. We have also taken food home and have ordered food for a large gathering. Never disappointed. The staff is great, everything runs like clockwork.

We see this place every time we're in Kerrville, but never stopped to eat until yesterday. It will not be the last! Nothing fancy, but good food and good people! Had brisket and sausage plate, with potato salad and beans, topped off with a piece of buttermilk pie for dessert. Wife had brisket, potato salad and slaw with peach cobbler.... More

Bill's is the grand daddy of Hill County Bar-B-Q joints. Nothing fancy but good flavor served very simply amongst a lot of history. Tons of old pictures and memorabilia keep the experience real.

I had the stuffed baked potato with pulled pork. The potato seemed leftover from the day before, the beans had a burnt taste. The pulled pork was very tender and moist but I had to add a lot of sauce to get any flavor. The atmosphere was fun and the service was excellent which made the food all the more... More
