“Super fun night out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Stumbled upon BBQ Bills on our latest trip to Lake Havasu. We thought we would get out of the box and try something different and so glad we did. You can't go wrong with the ribs but be prepared for a lot of food. They could do away with the salad bar as it is very minimal and not kept up but it is a minor part of the experience.

“Not only is Lake Havasu Fun It has great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

BBQ Bills has great specials including Monday night Mexican, Wed. all you can eat Spaghetti and BBQ Chicken. Friday Cold Water Cod. But Sunday Brunch with great fresh omelet bar prepared by BBQ Bill himself. I think that shows dedication of quality control!!!

“Mediocre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013 via mobile

After the other reviews I was expecting a great salad bar but it was small with nothing special. The taco soup was very good but empty & replaced with tomato basil. Husband had alligator tacos & just ok. When we went to leave the front door was locked. Not a good thing during business hours, in the event of a fire you would be in trouble. Won't bother going there again.

“Traveler with Dog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

WOW! Once again, if you have not tried this spot in Lake Havasu you really need to find it and go there, especially for the Sunday Brunch. The salmon with all the fixings on the salad bar is wonderful. Add to that the omelets that the owner cooks from scratch the old-fashioned way with the sauteed meat and veggies, then the egg mixture while the rest stays warm on the side, and finally the meat and veggies put into the inside of the omelet, folded over with lots of cheese, and served HUGE on a plate. Then try the rest of the buffet: corned beef, lots of first class meats, BBQ ribs, potatoes, chicken fried steak, eggs Benedict, desserts like sweet potato pie and pecan pie, blintzes, and more.
Today, a Thursday, just went in for the salad bar with ham and turkey, fresh corn beef and cabbage soup and tomato basil soup, and many fresh fixins. I do not like Ranch dressing, but I eat it here.
Have Leah mix up a couple cocktails and the day is just perfect. One of the few actually great places to eat in lake Havasu.

“Great food in Lake Havasu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2011

I have trouble finding places in Lake Havasu that actually do what they say they do. There are only a couple of "eater" friendly places to dine. Usually, you pay to much for too little or you find the same old ho-hum offering everywhere.
Try Bill's for the Sunday Brunch if you can: 8:00-2:00. They close early after brunch. Omelets cooked the OLD way with all your fixin's sauteed first, kept warm, egg batter cooked second, and then everything folded together inside. It is a BIG one, too. I am tired of the cheapo omelets other places advertise where everything is mixed into the batter and then cooked.
On the brunch menu is smoked salmon with capers, sour cream, purple onions, etc. cheese grits, corn fritters, thick bacon, sausage links, real ham,fruit, eggs Benedict, homemade corn beef hash, creole sauce and rice over pork, chicken fried steak, potatoes, veggies, and much more.
Then try the $1 pulled beef /pork sliders during happy hour with Bill's own sauce and Bill's own hot sauce (if you dare). Fresh cut steaks are display with the price in a small cooler and catfish is on the menu. There are several all you can eat dishes during the week and a salad bar with diced turkey/ ham, and fresh homemade soups.
This place is worth checking out just for the burgers and sandwiches. It's real dining, not just eating, on a budget.
