Captain Billy's has been around for years, and they're as good now as they've always been. It had been years since I had been there (not sure why) but my husband & I stopped in there one Saturday. I got the Whizz Pigg (1/2 ground beef, 1/2 ground bacon). It was heavenly. I love bacon, so I knew I couldn't... More

Very unassuming little burger joint... but it makes up for it with the great staff and the great food! The fries were so crispy and tasty and the burger was so good I finished the whole thing!👍🏼👍🏼 I'd go back again!

Captain Billy's is amazing! Get the Whizz Pig, a burger patty half-made of bacon! Fries and chicken fried steak are also very good! Great friendly service. Just a great old-fashioned American burger. Ask if jalapeno rolls are available; they kick the burger up a notch.

My daughter and I went here for lunch. Delicious hamburgers! They also have tater tots, fried pickles, and sweet potato fries to name a few. Staff was very nice and accommodating! Great service too! Delish tasty food! Definitely will be back with rest of the family on our next visit to Waco.

It's an old fashioned burger joint. It has some other things on the menu but, frankly, I've never tried any of them. I go here when I'm looking for a burger. They're good but not great. The location is good, right off Valley Mills, and it's been around quite a while. Much better than going to the chains.

Our Baylor daughter took us to Captain Billy's for lunch after moving her to a new apartment. The Whizzburger is a great burger, beef and bacon mixed patty. Great fries, but the onion rings are greasy. Very informal atmosphere. Friendly workers.

Nice place. Easy and fast to order. The young folks working there really hustle and our food came out fast. Had a fun and tasty dinner.

Worth the trip off the road for sure. Driving back from San Antonio at lunchtime and wanted a great burger. This place was a great find. Maybe the best burger I've had in a year. Using the In-N-Out double-double as the standard, my wife and I ordered a double cheese burger. It was huge and very, very tasty! But we... More

This is a great place to go when you're looking for a really good hamburger. It's so good that people who had free gift certificates and would still pay to eat there...... showing their support to this local establishment, which has been part of Waco for many years. Keep up the great job!
