Bill's has been serving burgers since 1945.

Most people choose to sit on the patio, but the inside bar has its own charms.

A cheeseburger, onion rings and a Frito pie with all the fixings.

The well-worn trucker hats lining the walls at this roadside stop are just one reminder of all the customers who’ve enjoyed burgers and Frito pies here since its 1945 opening. Though most eat outside on the ice house–style patio, we prefer the homey comforts of the diner-counter stools inside, where faded spots on the linoleum floors and Formica counters mark the passage of time.
