Billy's is by far the best place for breakfast in town. The selection is great and the OJ is the best you will ever have. You may have to wait but worth it.

This is not your normal diner experience, let me explain. On a recent trip to visit our son and daughter in law in their new home, we had to find a place to eat breakfast on a Sunday morning. My daughter in law called Billy's and asked how long the wait was for 8. They asked if we would like... More

"One of the best breakfasts I've ever had." This is what my husband said after our breakfast date this morning. That's a lot for him to say. I can only remember him saying that about any meal a very few number of times. He had the Lil Havana Omelette. I had Mic's Cannoli Tower (Yes, I had dessert for breakfast).... More

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.
