We eat breakfast here occasionally. This place hasn't changed in years! It's your basic old style diner. No frills, but pretty good food!

Very typical southern burgers, fried steak, etc. Don't be surprised if you get called "Honey" or "Sweety" whether you are a child, grown woman or an old man like me.

Food was not that great.. Grease smell and dirty around the grill area... Hole in the wall spot if you don't mind eating waste..

Seat your self. Coffee is hot. Plates are big. It's crispy where it's supposed to be. Gooey where it's supposed to be. Warm where it's supposed to be. Wait staff is a real person and they keep your coffee cup full.

I really enjoy going here. Always laid back and good food. Decent choices and good pricing along with friendly staff/cooks and a welcoming feel. An altogether enjoyable diner. I'd come here over a big 24/7 chain diner any day/night/morning. It's location is pretty easy to get to from the loop and it's right by the VA. Only negatives are it... More

Right across from the VA Hospital, this place is your typical dive with diner decor, the open kitchen behind the bar, and the vinyl booths. But the breakfasts are good, the coffee is hot, and the pie is pretty good.

Since moving to the area we have been going to local places instead of chains to support the community. Some have been average but Bill's Grill has been the best out of all of them. I've had both breakfast and lunch items so far, there are good size portions that can be finished if your starving, shared or boxed up... More
