Billy Burger serves up burgers cooked to order as well as some delicious sweets like cupcakes and brownies. There's only a few seats inside and few outside when the weather is good, so go early or off-peak. One of my favorites is the trucker burger, which comes with coleslaw and crinkle cut fries on top. The coleslaw is a real treat, tangy and crunchy the way it's the best. Plus, the burgers are made to order so they're fresh. Then there's the desserts, which are arrayed on the counter to lure you in. Don't resist. Pick one out and enjoy. Prices are also very reasonable, making this a convenient stop to stay on budget.

This is a local burger Place not a chain and you taste the difference. Amazing burgers and shakes but there is a entire menu that you must try.

It is tucked away behind Starbucks and easy to drive right by.

The Thai chicken wings are the best wings I have ever tasted.

Also the owners wife is a baker and the entire side of the counter is covered cupcakes and cakes.

My son and I ate there Sat Not alot of seating. guy taking our order was not friendly but oh well. I ordered a hamburger with tomatos,lettuce and onions and LIGHT mustard. Son got grilled chicken . Food came out.. Looked good , small , but looked good. Hamburger was way overdone but after picking off all burned parts was good.. however so much mustard took 5 napkins to wipe it off. Sons chicken sandwich was juicy and just ok. Hate the canned drinks. My experience was average however I believe is worth another shot.. Owner did come out and was beyond friendly. However not a lot of chance to speak with him since only other couple with 2 children there never shut up. I do believe for what I received was overpriced. While hamburger was way overcooked and soaking in mustard, had a good taste. I believe it is worth a shot.

Employees/Owners are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet and the food is always fresh and tasty. Plus its a great place to stop in for some fresh baked goods made by the owners wife every morning.

For years, we've been looking for a decent burger. But, we've been frustrated - everywhere we go. Either there's bland taste, or bad buns, or they're over-cooked, or dryed out. It's always something. So, we've tended to order burgers less often. Then, one day, a new little joint opened up in our neighborhood - West Chester, PA - and we do mean little. It has only 4 tables. But, we had to try it. And wow! We were blown away!

Finally, someone who remembers what a burger is supposed to be. Billy gives you a very tasty hunk of Angus beef, roughly formed, the old-fashioned way. He cooks it over an open flame, to your specs. His buns are fresh, and bakery quality. Toppings are also done right, and loaded on generously. The first time we took a bite of a Billy Burger we were in heaven. And we've been passing the word to everyone we know.

Billy's wife, Sally does the baking, and these goodies are also to die for. Big, flavorful cookies, cupcakes, pies, cakes, and various delightful sweets - always something new. Out of this world! They also offer tasty specialties such as mouthwatering brisket, rich lobster bisque, sweet potato fries, serious cole slaw, hand-dipped milkshakes, and more, more, more.

The proprietors and staff couldn't be friendlier. They treat you as if you were dining at their home. Husband and wife are both graduates of The Restaurant School in Philadelphia. They also put some notable experience under their aprons before opening their own place.

The food is so incredible...this little hole-inthe-wall should be considered a Cuisine Destination! Wherever you are, make the trip. You won't be sorry. And you wil be back.
