A large group of us went here for lunch. Several PoBoys were ordered, a tuna sandwich, a bowl of soup of the day and my daily special, meatloaf. The sweet potato fries got rave reviews. There were no take home boxes (all plates were clean). My meatloaf was good and mashed potatoes and gravy as well. Portions were good and... More

when in the old part of downtown Houma, LA - they offer regular basic menu items found in most restaurants in this area along with adding their own touch - the wife thinks seafood gumbo is one item that varies greatly depending on the chef's experiences and Cathy likes their gumbo - they have daily specials too - and the...

We visited New Orleans and took a weekend day trip outside of the city for a swamp tour. On the way back, it was way past our lunch hour, so we stopped in Houma. Bilello's was easy to find, and the adjacent fenced parking was very convenient. Even though we arrived a half hour before the afternoon closing, we were... More

Great place to have lunch with family and friends. Loved the hamburger steak and the chicken lunch special. Great atmosphere as well and the workers are all very nice and welcoming including the owner who is also the cook!

The restaurant is located on the bayou side of Main St. The food is homestyle, and it's really good! My family and I constantly gravitate to the made fresh daily hamburgers, but there is so much more good food to choose from! Fried chicken is only available on Saturday. Customers can dine inside or they can dine outside on the... More

Homemade burgers. Juicy. So good. Homemade onion rings and homemade desserts. All like your mom's cooking. Oh, and the best fried chicken. Saturday is the fried chicken special day. Good prices. Very affordable. Casual dining. Jeans, shorts.

This place may take the cake for the best customer service in the area (even when placing and order to-go). The young man on the phone was energetic, sweet, and full of wonderful suggestions. Explained each and every question I had and gave me great advice on what to eat. I had the soup of the day (which was a... More
