Always stop here when traveling through the area. Love the steaks, the salad is always fresh. Drinks are great too. After 8 hours on the road it's a great place to relax. The servers are always friendly and the manager stopped by also to make sure everything was fine with our meal. We appreciate that we can arrive late and... More

It has the appearance of a "bar and grill" but upon entering there are two venues; one for drinking and dancing and the other for a bar and tables for served food. The food is very good, home cooked style such as meat loaf and mashed potatoes.

This is one of my families favorite place to eat. We eat here at least once a week. Casual atmosphere and Warm friendly staff. The burgers are the best in town and one of our favorites, we also recommend, the 311, the Barn door and the chicken Cesar wrap. The whole family loves the boneless chicken nuggets as an appetizer.... More

My wife and I had seen good reviews for this place, here on Trip Advisor. So, when the clerk at out hotel recommended it, without prompting, we figured it was a go. Straight up local. This place even had some local kids complete their art on the walls. I had the Ribeye with a salad and veggies. The steak was... More

Our waitress Keely-was very friendly and attentive and two other young woman were very friendly also. My husband had the jambalaya which he said was excellent.... More

Most others seem to like this place. Maybe our experience was due to calling for delivery to our hotel. The girl who finally answered the phone after over a dozen rings was variously having problems because of "static" or "noise in the background. The order had to be repeated several times, and the concept of delivering to a hotel seemed... More

Not far off the interstate with great food at a fair price. My other choice was a convenient Burger King but I am so happy to have tried Billys.

Several of my friends work near Billy's Barn and they are always talking about it so my husband and I finally had the opportunity to try it one Saturday. Everyone raves about their salads and burgers. I opted to go with a south west salad - it was ok. I wish different dressings were available to better compliment the flavor.... More
