We ate a late lunch on Sunday, April 9 while vacationing in the Texas Hill Country. Both of us had a meal with meat, vegetables, and bread. We both enjoyed our meal, especially the home cooking like we find at many restaurants in our area. Pies looked good, but we were to full to try a piece. We also enjoyed... More

We've dined at Billy Gene's numerous times over the years. The past four times we've dined there, we've been disappointed. The grilled whitefish has been greasy, the burgers underdone or overdone. Service is lacking as well. We certainly hope they will make the necessary improvements.

Billy Gene's is an extremely popular local home cooking restaurant. We have eaten here several times when in Kerrville and have never been disappointed. They offer a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, as well as meat and vegetable plates and delicious desserts. Friendly, attentive table service in a comfortable hill country themed setting with wide glass wall views... More

Squandered use of one of the best locations available for a restaurant anywhere. Can't even assemble and warm foods properly. A steady decline since they first opened. Will not return.

The food here was bland and mediocre, just like the service. The atmosphere was that of a nursing home. Not one of the nice, modern ones. More like an old, boring, outdated place. The food was just sad. Bland and boring. None of the servers we observed seemed at all happy to be there. The service was not even worth... More

We came to Kerrville for a couple of nights for Spring Break. Many of the restaurants we were told to try were closed due to it being Sunday. Billy Gene's was listed as #2 on TripAdvisor and recommended by someone at the hotel. There was no wait at 8:00 when we arrived, but the restaurant was still pretty full. My... More

I was disappointed when I read your response. I apologize that you did not get the best service, as we do get lots of great compliments on our staff. Sunday was a very busy day for us as we served almost 900 people but everyone should get exceptional service. I will be speaking with your waiter so he is informed... More
