We hoped to find a nice fresh burger, but it turned out it was almost fast food as in a hamburger chain. My burger was with 2 very thin patties, just like mac donalds. Would not recommend!

All we ordered were buffalo wings and 2 beers. The wings were burnt and did not taste like buffalo sauce at all. Sent them back, finished and paid for our beers and decided to leave based on how bad the wings were.

I made a reservation about 3 weeks in advance. Although they had plenty of free space when we arrived, they said they did not have my reservation in the books. The food was wonderful but we had the WORST service. I had to ask the waiter to take our order and after the food came we never saw him again. I had to go look for him to both drop off and collect our checks. Conveniently, he added 20% to our checks, which I paid for in cash, and he never gave me any change or a receipt. The 8 of us were there over 2 hours, most the time waiting for terrible service. It's a shame because the food was so good. Maybe do takeout if interested in the menu!

If you are looking for a basic diner, this is a good place to go. The food was pretty good. Service was good and the location was good.

Their Reuben sandwich was NYC quality. Big enough for 2 people. The Campfire Milk Shake might have been the best Milk Shake I have ever had. This is a winner.

Our service was fantastic! Meals were enjoyed by all! I was disappointed by the small portion size of the kids' chicken strip meal and the fish on the fish sandwich, but we enjoyed everything . All food items were delivered hot -- Thank you!

I saw this place a few weeks ago on my way to dinner for restaurant week and I said I had to get here and I finally did. I LOVED IT! Before I even got there they were nice to me, I called to tell them that I would be running a little late and that I needed to change my reservation, and they did it with no problem! The food and service was really good. I enjoyed the evening with two of my closet friends and they really made me feel at home with the service and I DEFINITELY will be coming back in the near future. Shout out to Kevin for the amazing customer service and I will ask for you everytime I come there if I can! :)

Came here for a quick and easy dinner after a long day of packing. The burgers were so awesome. Can't wait to come back here for brunch/breakfast one day!

It was OK.

The Buffalo Chicken and the Veggie burger texture was weird.

The pretzel and onion rings were excellent.

Service was prompt and friendly.

The food was pretty good, although the service was to be desired. We ordered Shakes with our meals which never came and were told the machine was out, yet the table next to us seamed to get their shakes. No real apology for any mistakes just excuses. I wouldn't recommend going.

Burger was too messy and the plate slid all around, making our dining experience quite unpleasant.

Quick service when you let them know up front that you have a tight schedule. Definitely not waiting long to receive your meal. Burgers are very tasty and filling and the price is reasonable. I get excited when I'm in a group that wants to come here to dine! Also love that fact that you can order TO GO! My new favorite place!!! 🤗👍🏽

Get the fat cat burger - best in the house. Service was attentive, but it was REALLY slow when I went. Location is in the middle of everything.

Bill's Bar & Burger is a nice addition to the neighborhood. Prices are right in the middle of fast-food and fancy sit down. We ordered chips and guac to start, and the guac tasted fresh while the chips tasted homemade. I ordered the South of the Burger entree, and it was perfectly cooked. The slaw they add to the burger was a bit too creamy but other than that it was a good burger option. My friend ordered the Ranch Hand burger, which he said was very delicious, and also a side of fries. The fries weren't anything spectacular, but they weren't bad. Our waiter was nice, but he took away the chips and guac before we were finished and also took away the fries before we could stop him. He also gave my friend a Corona Extra instead of Corona Light.
Other than that, the service was good. I would go back for a quick bite if I'm not feeling fast food or high-end food.

This is just another Hamburger joint. Nothing special. Burgers were good but not outstanding. The items on the menu are way to expensive. For the price the food was just average.
