“Breakfast of Champions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Loved the food. Great home cooked meals that don't put a hole in your pocket. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly.

“Good down home coooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Don't look for anything fancy but if you want good service and honest to goodness down-home cooking, this is the place. Reasonable prices.

“Locals only”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Whew, look up greasy spoon in the dictionary and you will see a photo of Bill Smith's cafe. It's been in McKinney since I was a little girl and I think it still has the same furniture too!

“Much over-rated.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Have eaten at Bill Smith's several times. Pretty good until
last visit. It was awful. There were eight of us and most of us left
most of our food on our plates and vowed to never eat there again.
It could use a good cleaning. Locals were all over the place. Guess
they do not know what good food is.

“Old timey greasy spoon.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

The prices cant be beat, but boy, oh, boy,this place could use a good scrubbing. The menus were greasy and sticky and splotched with food. Not very appetizing. Booths were lumpy. Not impressed. At all.
