The burgers were large and juicy. Seasoned fries were great. Tater Tots were just warm. Service was good.

I got the build-your-own with mushrooms and swiss cheese. It was tasty and fresh! I didn't like the breading on the onion rings, so those went to waste. I normally wouldn't have even mentioned that, but it was a pricey meal ($18.xx for a burger...and onion rings). Just FYI, this didn't impact my review -- It took 2 tries to get to eat here. The first night, we arrived at 8:50pm, but were told that the restaurant was closed. The posted closing time on TripAdvisor said 10pm. This happened to us a couple of times, so we ended up calling every business instead of trusting Tripadvisor's info. Wanted to give a heads up to anyone else who might need to know!More

We stopped for dinner. Didn't expect the tropical look and feel. We had the black and blue burger and Mac & Cheese burger with Onion rings. Both were great - cooked exactly as we requested. We also had a Jedi Mind Trick and Mint Mania...shake - so good. Our server was friendly and good. Our food came out quickly. Great experience. Highly recommended.More

We went here because of the TripAdvisor reviews and we were definitely not disappointed. I was concerned about Covid, so, it was nice seeing the staff with masks and some tables blocked off for Covid . The only issue was a tray of condiments that...went from table to table. Also some staff in the kitchen had the masks below the nose. Now, for the food. Every thing was excellent. The onion rings are huge and delicious and come with an awesome spicy sauce. The burgers were juice and very good. The fries were very good and came out hot. The burgers are ground fresh every day. The waitress was very friendly and attentive and the owner came over to check everything.More

I went to Big Billys with my son and a friend of his when I was visiting them in Charleston. We choose this place because he had already tried their burgers through DoorDash and was impressed and it was close to my hotel. It was...definitely worth all the good TripAdvisor reviews. The only disappointment is that they were already out of the "Burgers Gone Wild" specialty of the day (Bision). However, the waitress said they had Ostrich, which my son ordered. I just got the regular beef. The bacon mayo was a nice touch. My son really liked the Ostrich burger flavor. Next trip back to Charleston will include a stop here.More

I have only had this during pandemic for their take out. It was absolutely delicious so I can only imagine what eating in the restaurant would be. Milk shakes should definitely be a go to as well!

Saw this place while researching places to eat in Charleston. It worked out it was right by the airport so it was the first place we hit after landing. This is a little place in strip mall that was easy to find. It is not...fancy at all but it has good service and food. I was craving a big burger and I was not disappointed. They have different types of meat for the bigger and a large variety of toppings. The onion rings were really good too. I will probably stop again next time I fly in to Charleston.More
