Great food. Prices are fair. Family friendly. Recommend the tri tip. The chicken sandwich is good as well. All sides are good.

I fell upon this restaurant quite by accident, just a drive by sighting but glad I did. I was in during the afternoon and it wasn't a peak period but the staff was very helpful and polite. I chose to have just a meat plate and sampled 3, sausage, pulled pork and brisket. Everything was done just right and it... More

Menu is SUPER confusing. Other people standing and staring at menu as was I. Way too many choices and very confusing ordering system. Food was barely average. Can't justify the high prices for what is offered...Won't be back

This local restaurant was a terrific find for my husband and I. We were headed to the Mediterranean place located in the same strip mall, but it was closed on Sundays. I remembered seeing a ``new´´ BBQ restaurant nearby. I am not usually a fan of chain restaurants or unhealthy BBQ places, so I was a skeptic. We were pleasantly... More

I have enjoyed Billy Dz since they opened. The food is consistently so good. My favorite is the ‘burnt ends’ and the smoked turkey is also yummy. All their sauces are gluten free. Recently I had family coming to visit and didn’t want to cook in the heat. I ordered the ‘Large Family Pack’. So glad I did since everything... More

I had the meatloaf with a side order of the mashed potatoes. I loved the mashed potatoes! The meatloaf, to me, was over cooked and dry. It was eatable but certainly not the best I have ever had and nothing I would order again, The basic order was one slice of meatloaf and one very small corn bread muffin. The... More

I ordered the BBQ chopped salad with chicken and fries with spicy BBQ sauce. I'm never disappointed when I get food here. Food is really good and big proportions. The staff is super nice. Lots of options. The only thing i haven't liked so far from them was the BLT cause it's super greasy, it upset my stomach.

Closest in the area for KC style BBQ. Not quite there, but close. They offer a variety of sauce styles, too.
