Description: Family owned and operated since 1990. Bill, Barbara, and Kelly Bradley started serving the San Clemente community with the hopes of being the "go to" spot for locals and visitors alike. In 2016, Billy's changed ownership and the new owners, Todd & Leslie Bowers, are excited to carry on the tradition and legacy that the public have come to love and appreciate. We are a full service delicatessen and old fashion butcher shop serving the highest quality meats available at a reasonable price. We also carry a nice variety of wines and specialty beers to take home with your Back Angus steaks!

“Very good and inexpensive place to eat!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We walked up and down the main strip debating where to eat... Many of the restaurants were expensive so we decided to try here. The sandwich was very good. Definitely, if staying in San Clemente, would eat here again. A great value for the money!

“Outstanding Sandwiches!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We decided to go for lunch there due to the proximity of our hotel and the fact that it was ranked #1 near us. We were a little perplex when we walked in as this place does not look like a restaurant at all and definitely more a Deli counter you find in your local grocery store.

But our opinion rapidly changed as we took the first bite: Absolutely delicious! My wife and I both went with the chicken salad sandwich and it was so fresh! My wife had hers on sourdough bread and mine on a french baguette. To my disappointment the baguette was not too fresh and the sourdough was amazing. After a few bites of mine, I asked the deli attendant if I could go with the sourdough instead. Without hesitation she immediately replaced it and apologized. Excellent customer service and phenomenal food. We will definitely go back especially since we loved eating or lunch next to the fountain outside in the courtyard!

“Summer delight”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Whenever we BBQ, we pick up our meats here, and order some side dishes and fresh bread. The staff here is so friendly. This is a great place for vacationers renting places in San Clemente to shop if they want to cook in their place. Their chili is awesome!!

“Great Sandwiches and Meat Counter”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Billy’s is a place you should go if you are in San Clemente visiting. I strongly suggest that you pick up picnic sandwiches and head down Del Mar street to the San Clemente pier and have a great day at the beach. You can walk the beach boardwalk that runs north from the pier to the edge of San Clemente after your wonderful lunch or take your beach towels and spend the day on the sand enjoying the waves and sun. Billy’s not only has great sandwiches, they also have wonderful fresh salads and baked goods to round out your meal.
If you have access to a grill in your vacation housing, you should stop by Billy's and purchase some of the best tasting steaks and seafood available in the area. If you don’t have a grill at your hotel, you can always head to one of the state parks (Doheny, San Onofre or Camp Pendleton ) that have grills available and get the full So Cal beach barbeque experience that your family will remember for a lifetime. (Grills are not propane, so will need to bring charcoal along with your other picnic and BBQ supplies)
There is outdoor seating in beautiful Spanish style atrium of the building that Billy's is located in on Del Mar. After lunch if the beach is not your thing, there are cute shops on Del Mar that you can spend the afternoon wandering thru.

“A perfect indulgence in a classic coastal community (beach town)”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We were referred to Billy's by some local residents and the products were as advertised. They are a provisioner with great fresh fish, classic Midwestern beef and a wonderful deli anchored by Boars Head products. They have an extensive and value oriented wine and beer selection and they surprise you with some of their offerings.. Billy's burgers are a new staple for us as is the excellent and beautifully trimmed Swordfish. We have had great steaks, salads, the baked beans are terrific and there is till more to try. At the end of a long day, we were looking for something to grill and they had Chicago 1/4 lb. hot dogs and excellent onion rolls designed for dogs. How good is this? We continue to find new and excellent items. The one I have not tried, but am dying to is the "Double Cut" porterhouse steak. We lnow their beef is terrific and this calls out to you. Truly a steak lovers delight. Go!
