“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The first night we went here, we ate off the buffet. Jim, the owner, was very warm & welcoming & very cordial. If there was something we wanted that wasn't on the buffet, he made it and put it out for us. When we found out that they made Chicago style pizza's, we asked about getting one to go the next day. Jim told us to get a par-bake so we could take it home and finish baking it. As it turned out, we ended up going there for lunch the next day and ate it there. We called ahead to order it because it takes about 45 minutes to bake. When we got there, we ate our salads and it wasn't long before we had our DELICIOUS PIZZA! Yu-um-my!!! The place may not be much to look at but we didn't go there for the ambiance, we went there for the pizza! And the sauce is so awesome! Also, I am not a big sausage fan but Jim's homemade sausage is excellent! I highly recommend this place especially if you are looking for an excellent Chicago style pizza!

“The only thing worse than the "service" is the overpriced food.”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

I told my hotel to throw away all the menus and never send anyone to this dump ever again. We waited almost an hour for a standard pizza. Paid $20 for that plus watered down soda. Place was filthy and the chairs wobbled. Pizza was small and bland. I would not send anyone here other than maybe the department of health.

“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.
