Stopped for dinner. Ordered the rotisserie chicken. Was dried out and nearly tasteless. Wife ordered an omelet which was ok but not great.

Tasty hamburgers, hot crispy French fries, decent prices, clean restaurant, friendly staff. What more could you want from a burger joint?

Bills’s an old school diner serving old school diner food, grilled and fried. It’s not trendy but it does not need to be.

You'd think a place with "Burgers" in the name would have absolutely killer burgers. Sadly, this was more like one of the restaurants you see on "Restaurant Impossible": Outdated decor, seriously over-extended menu, and bland food. Here's what to expect:

Pros:
Staff is really nice. Great bunch of people
Parking was easy, location was good. If you're in one of hotels (Ayres or Travelodge), it's walking distance.
Decor is outdated but well maintained and the place is clean.
They have a small salad bar as well and self-serve drinks.

Cons:
Burgers were amazingly bland. "Worst burger ever" according to my younger son. He didn't finish it or his fries. For him, that's telling as burgers and fries are two of his three food groups (pizza being the third). Fries were tasteless and mushy. Onion rings used a batter similar to what's on corn dogs. Both tasted like pre-frozen materials.

Their menu is too extensive, ranging from breakfast meals, burgers, hot dogs, steak and chicken dinners, fish and chips, etc. It's probably too extensive and won't allow for any level of quality or consistency.

I can't really recommend this restaurant and it wasn't necessarily less expensive either: Burger combinations for four worked out to $42.

They were SUPER friendly, the onion rings and fries were bland- little salt would change it for sure. My kids really loved the grilled cheese and bacon cheeseburger.

Some of the locals recommended Bill's Burgers and really hyped it up, so we placed an hour for a business lunch. I ordered a standard burger and fries and was not impressed. The food wasn't bad, it was just okay, especially the fries.

Overall, I was not impressed, especially for the price.They may have some great items on the menu, but when it comes to burgers and fries, I wouldn't recommend them.
