“Now, that's BBQ!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

My wife and I visited Kerrville today and had lunch at Bill's BBQ. What a treat that was. Not only was the food outstanding but so was the atmosphere you would expect with a great Texas BBQ eatery.

Together, we had the chicken, pork ribs, and lean brisket. We did not need a knife to cut the brisket, it literally fell apart with slight pressure of the fork; the chicken was juicy and delicious; the meat on the ribs almost fell off the ribs. They were likewise outstanding.

All of the side dishes (beans, coleslaw, potato salad, etc.) are "help yourself" as you go through the serving line. All meats are sold by weight.

The prices and meat selections were in line with other BBQ places we have eaten at so there was no issue with either. Likewise the quantity of food was more that adequate - we both left very full.

The atmosphere consisted of picnic tables with western/hill country decor. For those who haven't been there, as you are looking for Bill's, be careful as you could easily drive by it. It is a small establishment but well worth seeking out and visiting if you want some really great Texas BBQ.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

This was delicious bar b q. Compared to what we have in east texas this was heaven! Mouth watering brisket, GREAT suasage, delicious gabrito, I have never been more satisfied as I was when eating here. Also, beer and the best baked beans I have ever had, will definately be back next time I visit my grand parents.

“Great place to get ribs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2010

This is a great barbecue joint. The ribs are famous for being scrumptious, and the brisket is very tasty too. Also, you can get big drinks with unlimited refills! They are also very friendly here. The only complaint is the indoor dining room is small, but it is a small building, after all. Definitely a place to stop in Kerrville.

“Favorite BBQ in Kerrville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2009

This is a casual BBQ shack that is clean and well run. When you walk in, you're greeted with a smile and a friendly "Hello!" Choose from barbecued beef, pork, sausage, or ribs, and sides of cole slaw, potato salad, and beans. Pick the size you want (sandwich, small, medium, or large plate) and your beverage, soft drink or beer. Although the meats aren't as flavorfully smoky as some Texas BBQ, they are lusciously moist and tender. This is where the locals eat, and it's my favorite BBQ in Kerrville.
