“Authentic Chicago pizza and Italian beef in Colorado”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The best Chicago style pizza in all of Colorado that I have found in 15 yrs. of searching! The thin cracker crust is up there with the best of the mid-west. The buffet is fabulous. Not only do you get a taste of real Chicago pizza but there is wonderful Italian beef complete with marinara and spicy pepper relish. The salad is always fresh and if you like bean and ham soup there is none that can match it. There is delish chocolate cake for dessert and they even wrap it up for you to take. That's good as I never have enough room for all the fresh and authentic food I would love to eat here. Please stay in Colorado Billy's!!!

“Excellent Place To Eat!!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled onto this place while on a motorcycle trip from Oklahoma. We are so glad we did!!!The food was incredible, all homemade Italian & Chicago style pizza. As awesome as the food was, the owner Billy was even more so! The staff was so friendly & it was a fun, fun place to stop.

“Yummy! Chicago Style Pizza in a Family Owned Restaurant”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Billy's is a "hole in the wall" on the West Side of Colorado Springs. Don't let the "ambiance" fool you. The decor is nothing to crow about, but some nice Chicago memorabilia. The tables are covered with vinyl tablecloths and some of the chairs are rickety. If you love Olive Garden, maybe this isn't the place for you.

All that aside, the food is great. The sausage is delicious, and they have bread there to make a sausage sandwich, with real giardiniera- absolutley wonderful. Salad is good, but who cares about salad when you can have pasta, pizza, sausage, italian beef, chocolate cake and delicious bread?

We went on a Friday night. The server was a doll, friendly and helpful. The owner, Billy, is right there on site and helped a couple who had some sort of issue. He really truly cares that you have a good experience. I am sad to see these bad reviews. I've never had bad service there, and I have always enjoyed the food.

“Pizza”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Very disappointing. Much better pizza to be had at Papa Murphy's. Our pizza crust was tough and lacked flavor.

“Awful...Arrogant...Never Again!”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Top 5 Worst Experience in my book. We arrived around 6:30 p.m. on a Friday and waited 30 minutes for the pizza buffet to have one pizza selection. When I asked when more would be ready, I was told to go sit back down and wait, that the pizza will be ready when she wants it to be...another 30 minutes go by and still nothing...we each had a slice of horrible pizza and a bite each of a dry salad. The waitress was rude and arrogant, and I will never step foot into Billy's Old World Pizza...disgusting!
