My kids have LOVED Bill's Place since they were toddlers, and still love it as they enter their 20's. The menu offers dozens of options for toppings and combinations on burgers. My kids swear by the milkshakes. The staff are always friendly, and sports is...More

Joint might be a bit harsh considering a couple of comments I I've read recently. Forget them. I've got a lot of years in burger world and I've got a load of respect for some places that differed in style and approach, some dating back...More

Don't get caught up in the reviews. This is a diner that does a good burger and milkshake. They get creative with some of their signature burgers but nothing wrong with a good old fashioned cheese burger, fries and a beer/milkshake. The prices can't be...More

We stopped here hoping that the limited excellent reviews on this place would be correct. I should have listened to the majority. Small, cute, old place with a very nice waitress, but that's about all that was good. Fries tasted like cardboard. Patty melt had...More

Just a refreshing "walk in off the street" restaurant. Nothing fancy. Good food; American Menu, ample servings, friendly service, reasonable prices. Certainly better than any fast food joint! If you're in the neighborhood, give them a try.

I went there with my cousin Bill (no relation!!) who tells me he's been going there for fifty years. Not I'm going to argue with that. Whats special about this place is that it harks from an age when families had restaurants, when the employees...More

This was my best hamburger place 30 years ago. But is not the same anymore. Very sad to see a old restaurant going downhill.

We had a great burger there and a Dreyer's Black and White Shake. The staff was great and so was the service. It was about 25 blocks from Lands End toward town. It has been operating since 1959. What a great find.
