We had lunch here this afternoon. We arrived when there were no tables available, but we were first on the waiting list. (They don't take reservations. And they don't take credit cards). After about a 15 minute wait, we were shown to our table in the busy barroom. I had a roast beef sandwich, which was good, but no better... More

Another East Aurora classic. Small tavern, get there before noon otherwise always crowded. Plan to stand or sit at bar for a drink while waiting for table. Roast beef on weck, curly fries and a beer, heaven!

The Bar Bill is now so well known that it attracts people from a large radius. It is a great bar; they serve a good pint of Guinness and the atmosphere is good. The bar menu is very limited. The beef on weck is the best thing you can order; the wings used to be the best in the area... More

Cramped & crowded, this delightful dive is still a perfect choice if you're in the area & after a great lunch, provided you get there early enough to find a table. While I'm not a fan personally, their wings are good, but what I'd really recommend is their roast beef. Hopefully, you've snagged a table by the window & can... More

After reading so much about Bar Bil Tavern, I was a little disappointed. After an hour and a half wait for a table, we waited another half hour for our order. The sauce on the chicken wings was good, but the wings came out at room temperature. I liked the beef on weck, but they didn't bring any au jus... More

It's been a year since I last wrote, or visited this place, and sad to see what it has become. At one point in time you couldn't beat the Wings and Beef on Weck. Now, the wings just don't have the flavor they used to, or freshness, and the beef isn't cooked with the love that it had in the... More

We frequent Bar Bills several times a month. They have the best food near to our home town. We have loved everything on the menu. They will not disappoint!

Very popular place to dine, and staff were very polite and very quick service. My first time tasting buffalo wings and I was not disappointed. Our group enjoyed a few pitchers of IPA, a main meals were also excellent. Would defiantly recommend.

We went here for two meals while in E. Aurora...lunch and dinner on two different days. Dinner was with my stepson and his girlfriend visiting us from Ancaster, Canada who also own a pub there. Dinner time is VERY crowded, but we sat at the bar and still enjoyed good service. There is a wait for both seating and getting... More

I've heard a lot of rave reviews about this place and finally had the chance to try it. Since Bar-Bills is known for its roast beef, I decided to try the "Bar Bill Special", which is a roast beef sandwich with cheese on toasted rye. Yes, the roast beef itself is very good - but for $10.25, there should have... More
