I have been to Billy Barooz twice now, and both times the food has been excellent! We even sat outside and enjoyed the evening breeze last time I was there. I hope to go again soon!

Great vibe in this large restaurant and sports bar in Champaign. Plenty of parking with friendly staff to greet you. There are loads of TV screens all displaying different sports games. The menu has a good selection. I had the Philly burger with sweet potato fries and IPA beer. Great flavour food and beer.

We live just outside Champaign and eat at BB'S about once every 6 weeks. Salads are always fresh and delicious I have tried most of them. The Salmon with cucumber relish or Salmon with Peach BBQ are really good! My husband is a true meat lover and gets the Ribeye or Steak Diane or they have a few steak sandwiches.... More

The food at Billy Barooz is wonderful. It is really really good.The chicken nachos are amazing. The prices are fine, in the mid-range, and the service is good. There are many TVs and the decor is fun. It is a large sports bar, but can be PACKED, especially on the weekends, and before ballgames. They do not have reasonable room... More

Generic, ordinary sports-bar food in a deafeningly-loud, uncomfortable environment. Seems like one of the many consultant-optimized places popping up everywhere, without any real personality or uniqueness.

We went for a light lunch and both came away not feeling stuffed! We loved it! I had the Kale salad with shrimp! My husband had the spiced fish tacos with rice and he enjoyed it too! We sat at the high top tables and enjoyed watching the TV's! Good waitress too!

We ate here with another couple before an Illini Basketball Game. We received excellent service and the food was great. I enjoyed the ribeye sandwich with coleslaw on the side. It may have been one of the best ribeye sandwiches I've ever eaten. It came on a warm toasted bun. The slaw was cool and creamy. My wife and friends... More

We went to Billy Barooz for a family meal (adult children and grandchildren). It was a good place for routine family restaurant food. There are lots of menu options, the service is good and for what it is, Billy Barooz is pretty good.
