We visited on a busy Saturday and were NOT disappointed! The shredded pork was tender and beans and cole slaw were fresh and delicious! We enjoyed the food at the tables outside, using copious napkins to mop up the tasty BBQ sauce as we ate up everything in sight! Definitely a unexpected delight!

I had gone to Pecos Bill's since the "60's and always loved their Okie beef and pork. Lately it has not met my expectations. It has a loyal following, but the inconsistent quality and hours has my view skewed now.

Hole in the wall---literally! 4 tables out front with some shade. Different style bbq---It's oklahoma style. Limited menu-limited menu--limited menu and they do it right. Sandwiches and beans every day till they sell out. Ribs only on Sat and Sun. (till they sell out) Get lots and lots of napkins. This is how a bbq sandwich should taste. This is... More

I have been frequenting Bill's for the last 25 years. I always get the hot Oakie Pork and lemonade. It is a messy affair, but very tasty. Grab a fork and plenty of napkins. This is not the world's best BBQ, but it makes for a quick and satisfying lunch. Certainly worth a visit.

The place really hasen't changed much and the food is still the best! Best beef, pork, turkey and ham sandwiches ever and their sauce is like no other.... More

My dad first took me here in the 60's. I live in AZ now but I try to stop by whenever we're in town. Use to grab a shredded pork with hot sauce and park a few blocks away by a park area. Always liked the ranch style house along side. Great sandwiches and a wonderful family.

I grew up eating at Pecos Bill's. It is a walk up place. Don't expect fancy but the food is fantastic! It has always been family owned and operated. My husband and I, when we visit Glendale, go there for bbq beef sandwiches & their beans then take it to Griffith Park nearby and eat. I highly recommend Pecos Bill's... More

Not your typical so. cal. BBQ and not put together by an X Chef from a trendy rib place. The place looks Iike it's out of a scene from "The Grapes Of Wrath" old time BBQ, nothing fancy and totally old time American. Don't expect "Sweet" BBQ sauce on there sandwiches or ribs. What you can expect is a taste... More

Went there for lunch and I must say that I have never not considered finishing a pulled pork sandwich in my life until now. Did not enjoy any part of it. Will not be going back.

We went there for lunch. The sign said they were open till they ran out of meat which is usually a good sign. I was disappointed with the flavor and the quality of the pulled pork sandwich. Is was so messy I had to eat it with a fork. Not impressed
