“Traditional diner food with a twist”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Billy's has great breakfast & lunch options. I think breakfast is the way to go! The Zip City (a former special) isn't listed on the menu but it's my go-to order: English muffin topped with tomato, pulled pork, goat cheese & poached egg topped with Hollandaise. All the omelets are great & everyone loves the cream chipped beef (if you get it before it runs out!). The sandwiches are yummy too! I've never had a disappointing meal and the service is always great even though it's ALWAYS busy! Be prepared to wait for a table but things move fast.

“Billy is Excellent Chef & Manager.....”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

He seldom cooks, however, they're his creations. often crowded, he doesn't want to expand, to keep the coziness. Special requests always handled. Appreciates his staff & customers!

“Great Local Diner, friendly staff, very good food!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Had lunch at Billy's downtown diner today, and really enjoyed it. A loud and boisterous place with a super friendly vibe. Food was high level diner food, the owner amps up your regular choices, everything is fresh and the staff is great. Will be back.
