Drew worked here for 7 years before he bought out the previous owner. He has added a smoker to create more flavorful meats, does a limited menu and does it very well. Sauce? You like sauce? The list of sauces grows longer and longer. Options galore! The beers are premium and varied. The selections are well considered. One thing I... More

I have eaten at Piller's many times and have never had a bad meal. I always go for lunch. I have tried to go for dinner a few times but either got there too late or they were out of the special when I arrived. The portions are big enough and the service is friendly.

Fun atmosphere. Accommodating chef prepared my son a cheese quesadilla even though it wasn't on the menu. Nice wait staff. I really enjoyed my meal.

Had a great lunch at Pillers. Loved the poor boy, half a poor boy was more than enough, a third portion would have sufficed. The soup was really tasty and the whole meal was real comfort food on a miserable grey day.

The sandwich was very fresh and stuffed with everything and anything you could want in a poor boy/hoagie/what ever they are called in your part of the country. The whole grain bun was very good and a half sandwich was more than we could eat.

Charming decor, great service. The Poorboy sandwich--I especially like the one with assorted meat, but the other varieties are good--is addictive. I've probably eaten 50 of them over the years.

A good selection of beers, mostly in cans, only one on tap and a varied menu. We sampled several local brews with a poorboy and fries. Friendly staff and good service.
