GO TO BILLY's. You may have to wait to get a table but it will be well worth it. The food is always delicious. Breakfast is fantastic with a good menu selection. Be brave, go away from the norm and try one of Billy's specials. You won't be disappointed with any choice. Lunch is equally fantastic. The chicken soup is... More

The menu tries to be a little adventurous. They spice up the breakfast standards a bit. But if you want to stick with the familiar, they will certainly accommodate that, too. Lots of business brunches seem to be held here. My most recent visit was to meet with a marketer. I found the service attentive. There are a lot of... More

I love this place! I've never had a bad meal here. It's diner food, but on a whole other lever of goodness. Everytime someone visits from out of town, I make sure we eat at Billy's:) So good! Try the Huevos Rancheros!

Lots of hype on this place so since we were in the vicinity, we decided to turn up for breakfast. We ordered blueberry pancakes, some potato tots of some sort with onions and French toast. The coffee (I was told freshly brewed) tasted like plain water and bitter. Wait staff seem plain disinterested and food took a while to turn... More

Someone with poetry skills wrote the menu. I was led to expect great things but both dishes I ordered were mediocre - although the french toast and fruit/granola sunday looked good. Load atmosphere with televisions on the wall. Personable, attentive service. Good coffee.

Whenever we travel, we try to hit as many diners as possible: we just can't get enough of diners. Billy's Downtown Diner was a diner that followed their own beat. The place was filled with locals and travelers alike, but had an atmosphere fit for a trendy crowd. It was welcoming, fun and the food was amazing. My husband got... More

Billy's takes a twist on diner food with their variety of breakfast and lunch offerings. It's all diner pricing, but far from diner quality food. I'll definitely be back!

We sat outside on a lovely Saturday. Just parked the car, walked right up and were seated pronto. Drinks and food came out quickly. Couldn't have asked for a better waitress. Ordered Lily's cornflake breaded French toast. It was excellent; and this time the blueberries were fresh compared to early Spring when we came the blueberries were from frozen. The... More

For a Sunday, it was surprisingly difficult to find a good place for breakfast, but Billy's was far and away the best choice. Great service, great breakfast food, very tasty and good prices. We would definitely eat here again.

I have been here a number of times throughout the years. This was my first time back since the rebuilding and I'm happy to see that it is as good as ever. It is not on the level of the high end restaurants in town, but holds its own in a crowded field of downtown eateries. The food and service... More
