Been going here for several years and they always provide good service and good food for reasonable prices. Even with a recent price increase on alcohol, their mixed drinks and wine are still some of the least expensive in town, and their pours are better than ANY place around.

As a local to the Champaign area and appreciate good food Billy Barooz never disappoints! They offer a large selection of menu items and tons of specials. I have too many favorites to pick one! Portions are generous and the atmosphere is enjoyable. Outside patio dining is offered for summer months. Warm fireplace inside for winter. My particular favorite menu... More

Excellent bar food. Very improved over the past couple of years. Great burgers and fries. Some more interesting sides also.

Good food, good prices. We went late on a Saturday evening and food was hot a fresh. Waitress was wonderful. Music and TV Mix was a bit loud, was hard to carry on a conversation.

This is a sports bar with a good concentration on the food, which is really good. They have daily specials as well . We have not been disappointed yet with a meal. They have a good variety of things to please everyone.

This is the place to go when you're looking for a business lunch spot that isn't too "gourmet" and has a menu that appeals to the "average" American. By that, I mean it's mostly burgers and stuff. Anytime I take my entire staff out to lunch, this is where we go, because we have one member who avoids ethnic food... More

I've been here many times. It's a favorite for those that live nearby. I always get the Peach BBQ Salmon because it's ridiculously good. Others with me have gotten the salads and burgers (or the salmon!). We've also tried the potato skins but they were small so I've never ordered them again. Everything has always been really good. Sometimes it's... More
