We went for a light lunch and both came away not feeling stuffed! We loved it! I had the Kale salad with shrimp! My husband had the spiced fish tacos with rice and he enjoyed it too! We sat at the high top tables and enjoyed watching the TV's! Good waitress too!

We ate here with another couple before an Illini Basketball Game. We received excellent service and the food was great. I enjoyed the ribeye sandwich with coleslaw on the side. It may have been one of the best ribeye sandwiches I've ever eaten. It came on a warm toasted bun. The slaw was cool and creamy. My wife and friends... More

We went to Billy Barooz for a family meal (adult children and grandchildren). It was a good place for routine family restaurant food. There are lots of menu options, the service is good and for what it is, Billy Barooz is pretty good.

This place never fails to satisfy. The wait staff are always quick and friendly. The menu is very large making it difficult to make a selection, but I think that is a good thing. The menu is not just bar food, but has a wide variety that should satisfy anyone. There are TVs all around the place so it's a... More

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

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.
