When in Lincoln, be sure to visit the Haymarket, just adjacent west of downtown. And while strolling the streets of the Haymarket, be sure to stop in at Buzzard Billy's...a really outstanding eating joint that has all those classic Cajun dishes and American food favorites as well.

And the interior atmosphere and ambiance is really cool...the entire facility is adorned with items of memorabilia and nostalgia...you can spend quite a bit of time just browsing the displays !!!

Appetizers are super good, main courses our tremendous, and desserts are divine.

Great service, excellent food, fun place to relax !!!

Visited location on Fathers Day. Service was great. Staff was very friendly. Food came out as ordered. Good sized portions. And offered free Apple pie and ice cream for Fathers Day. Overall, great experience!

We like giving to Buzzard Billy’s for specific food items and we have never been disappointed. I prefer a buffalo burger and bread pudding for dessert. The buffalo is always cooked to a little less than medium and the taste along with the health benefits is why I order it. The bread pudding is also above average..... served hot with a nice sauce. My wife likes Jambalaya and says it is great. Her dessert is the hush puppies which are again above average. I repeat we go there to eat these specific items and wish we had time to sample other things

Had supper with a friend at Buzzard Billy's. I ordered a burger and fries, didn't think that could go wrong. It was terrible. The burger was dry and burnt. It was very overcooked. It should have been sent back. There was burnt crunchy pieces all over it. My friend had catfish, steamed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes, which were excellent. Maybe this is just not a burger place.

Brought some co-workers here tonight and it was completely different from the last time. Service on the food side after our order was taken was horribly slow. Waitress came out and apologized. One person in our party ordered a bourbon burger and was served a chicken sandwich. My ribeye was slightly over cooked but edible. Not good tonight.
