This is a wonderful restaurant for an evening with friends. Let's be clear, it's not a fine dining establishment. However, it is a good restaurant with good food and a GREAT patio during pleasant weather. We recently enjoyed dinner with friends on the patio during an amazing warm weather day in February. Because we live in different cities we spent... More

Unique and entertaining atmosphere on the Brazos. Do not let the crowded parking lot keep you from enjoying the good food. My husband had the Seafood Eggplant Pirogue and loved every bite. I had the Crescent City Chicken and though it was a little too spicy. I did love the side corn seasoned to perfection. The hushpuppies were huge and... More

Went late on a Monday night, so it was not crowded. The weather was pleasant so we sat outside with a lovely view of the lighted bridge. The wings were excellent and everything else we ordered! Definitely would recommend!

Very impressed, good food and service. Everything on the menu looks great perhaps a wee bit pricey but probably worth it from the looks of the plates the other patrons were getting. I want to go back again soon. The weather was nice for sitting on the deck over looking the river. A little tricky finding the driveway off of... More

I have visited Buzzard Billy's several times in the last year, most recently in January and have had much better experiences than my first visit. We sat at their bar and watched a basketball game while getting some food and had a great time. Buzzard Billy's is located right on the Brazos River, across I-35 from McLane Stadium and Baylor...

We will be back to this place. Great place for gathering with friend. The food is good and the waitstaff is super. The fried pickles are perfect. And, although they were missing my favorite beer, they allowed us to taste till we found what we liked.

For Texas, Buzzard Billy's has good Cajun food. It is spicy, but not too spicy and they have lots of variety. Would recommend!

Nice place and decoration. It was good but a lot of sauce and maybe not enough crawfishes and aligator. A lot of rice and potatoes in the plate, I would prefere having more crawfishes and less side. Very nice waiter (one of the most polite and nice we had in Waco) Unfortunattely we could'nt eat outside, no room for 6... More

This is a must go-to while in Waco, TX. The restaurant is located on the bank of the Brazos River near downtown, on I-35. The offer outdoor seating on a dock over the river where you can feed the turtles and ducks. They have great seafood and Cajun dishes, and their bar is great for hanging out or watching sports....
