Read all about the place and it all turned out to be pretty accurate. It is a huge complex with multiple bars , dance floors , stage , bull riding arena , pool tables , video arcade, gift shop , snack bar, Function Rooms and more. We booked reserved seating for the band , Robert Creager (2 genres only , Country AND Western !) They actually wern't bad but having never heard any of their songs before felt a little out of it when he would stop singing and point the mic at us to sing the next bit, luckily the crowd knew the words !! The place wasn't packed that night so normal entry would of been fine as there is plenty of room to stand and TV Monitors to watch the performers on stage. One tip is if you go to Stockyards Rodeo before they offer free entry into Billy Bob's with your ticket stub and it would of saved us $32. Nothing to sneeze at ! The house band were more our speed and watching the couples 2 step with minimal collisions was fascinating to watch and had me tapping my toes, a real good night all in all ! The only downside was that smoking is allowed and it did detract from the overall enjoyment , ban it Billy Bob !!

My buisness friends suggested me going there to expirience a true Texas night.

There was a live band playing, people dancing in couples and line dancing. It was pretty fun to watch and overall I enjoyed it.

Unfortunately they didn't have any bull riding at the time I was there.

Something that is worth to mention are 4 or 5 old school pinball machines that they have there.
I got me a nice TShirt and a cup as a memorabilia item to remind me of Texas.

We had heard about Billy Bob's and decided to give it a go. Has live acts (unfortunately last night 1 Dec, the act didn't suit us - we have seen better singers and groups in the free bars in Austin and Fort Worth).
However, you can watch Bull Riding (for 3 extra dollars), play pool, dance the Texas Two Step on the large dance floor, look at the famous hand print gallery and much more.
To be honest we preferred the Broken Spoke in Austin, smaller and more intimate venue but we are pleased we visited.
Cost 16 dollars to get in but if you look at local advertising you can find 1 dollar off coupons.

I have attended several concerts at Billy Bob's and they have been a fun and enjoyable experience as long as I was in seating, but beware where. Some of those reserved spots are obstructed. General admission leaves you with bobble heading obstructed views and less than great acoustics, never mind the noise of the crowd. It is usually on the requests for sightseeing when visitors come into town. Daytime entry is $2.00 per where you may view the deserted interior. Nights are meant for a good ole time, the more drinks you have the more fun you may have. This is really in evidence with the under 25 yr age group who seem prone to thinking everyone must also enjoy their antics.
