Bills used to be the best place in Wilson for BBQ. No longer. Since Bill died the quality of food has suffered greatly. The BBQ tastes flat and has a mushy consistency.
Not as good as Parkers ,but very GOOD food .the BBQ and chicken( several types ) are on time, vegetables are a bit overcooked , but we will continue to visit .5-star on the food, price and service .
