    We had the breakfast sandwich and the breakfast burrito. Generous portions, absolutely delicious food. It definitely hit the spot. The staff is very friendly and catering as well. We will be back next time we’re here, highly recommend!

  2. L Dude

    Amazing place with outstanding food and service.

  3. Aewhy

    Great service and Chicken Fried Steak!

  4. vadim kasko

    Great fresh food and good costumer service. Fair price.

  5. Zac Smith

    First time eating here. Awesome food. Seems like a family run business. New favorite diner that’s for sure.

  6. Steve McGerrett

    I ordered the full biscuits and gravy. Very large for the price. Definitely was not what I was expecting. The biscuits were kind of bland but the gravy taste awesome. There was a lot of people though I was part of a crew restoring power to the area and there was other crews there as well. Friendly environment and upbeat staff. Cup of coffee was expensive though. I’ve never almost paid $4 for a cup of coffee. On-site parking and easy access. Will definitely stop again next time I am in town.

  7. Kierra Burton

    Great American breakfast food!

  8. Andy B

    This place is definitely where you have to stop if you’re in the area, regardless of how hungry you are!
    We went in with 4 adult 2 teens 5 kids and an infant. They sat us quickly. Food came out in a timely manner. Service was outstanding and the food tasted great!
    Quite literally, everything we had was delicious! Thank you, we’ll be stopping by again.

  9. Margalit Arami

    No-nonsense, patriotic breakfast joint. When you ask for “medium rare,” you get it cooked perfectly. Friendly, helpful waiters and waitresses. There’s even a treasure chest for the kids on the way out!

  10. Dustin Whaley

    Pancakes to die for

  11. Jesse Ray

    Excellent little Café! Not only is the food great, but the customer service is outstanding. Keep serving up those freedom fries!

  12. Emily Adams

    Been there a few times, have honestly been disappointed every time. Food is overpriced and not very good. Service sucks. And on top of everything, their employees aren’t wearing masks? Hope they get shut down, you aren’t an exception to the rules

  13. Sydney Johnson

    My husband and I came in for breakfast and were blown away! We both chose The Farmer Skillet and it was amazing! Our waiter was very kind and helped us choose what to get. We will definitely be coming back very soon!

  14. sarah howard

    Fantastic food and wonderful, friendly service!! We live coming here. Its so welcoming and delicious.


    The best chicken fried steak I’ve had in years! The biscuit was unreal, so buttery! The service was impeccable. Solid breakfast joint. They need a kissing fingertips emoji for this place.5/5🤤

  16. Gimli SilverHammer

  17. Gary Pinholster

  18. Ramon Martinez

    A great place to have a great breakfast or lunch.

  19. Krooked Paw

    A great American breakfast surrounded by greatest people. Wish we had more places like this. Food is absolutely spot on perfect. The atmosphere is exactly what a Cafe is supposed to be. The staff deserves a huge thank you for being who they are. Dont change anything!!

  20. Shawn Robins

    Fantastic food in a hometown feel diner. The chicken fried steak was massive and you’ll go away satisfied. The wait stuff is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Located in old town Burlington Washington. Free parking on The road.

  21. Jay Dominick

    Wonderful place. Highly recommend!

  22. Chris Pfaff

    Absolutely delicious, and great service to boot!

  23. Mark Flickner

    My wife and I truly enjoy having breakfast here.
    Update 2 years later.
    Still a fantastic restaurant that believes in good food and community. They treat their patrons like family and respect everyone. They deserve tons of support.

  24. Bean Sprout

    Super busy when I visited on Friday, but food was good and the servers were super!

  25. John Gibbons

    Food was good, arrived hot. The sevice was good, waitress was attentive even while the place was full of patron’s.

  26. Jay Bulworth

    That was the greasiest club sandwich I have ever had. I didn’t even finish it, wasted my lunch time and money. Made me feel crummy the rest of the day. They went way down hill. I won’t be back.
    After posting my review I see all the 5 stars and can’t help but wonder if they are real, I have had a bad experience there a few times over the past year. Have a hard time believing they only did a bad job on my food.

  27. Chris McMillan

    Grilled Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich!

  28. Don Ross

    Great food, like home cooking. Family type atmosphere. Friendly staff.

  29. Taylor Abrahamson

    Such a good, and friendly environment! Loved the family & the food was best I’ve had in a long time. My very picky 5 year old kept saying how yummy it was. 10/10 recommend!!

  30. J Z

    DELICIOUS! The food was so yummy! The service so friendly & kind! It was busy BUT worth the wait. We got to know folks we sat by too, which made it even more of a hometown feeling. A FREEDOM cafe for those who love the USA!

  31. Vince Linnell

    Always amazing food, great service and small town feel. I’ve been bringing my family here for years and will continue. 🇺🇸

  32. Julianna meeden

    I love this place more and more. The corned beef skillet is absolutely amazing!! I noticed every meal that comes out looks great, though. There may be a wait, because every table is usually full. Which is a good sign because the food and staff are amazing.

  33. Frances D

    Excellent down home establishment with a back bone, truly your All American Cafe! Great food, large portions, friendly staff and clean!

  34. Gregory Shearer

    Went for our first time. Atmosphere was very nice! I loved the flags around the inside of the restaurant. I ordered the cinnamon bun pancakes, the center tasted under cooked. After having a conversation with the chef (who kindly came out to our table) it turned out that it’s because of the different ingredients of this kind of pancake (I’ve never ordered this kind before). They were prompt to take care of me and make sure I was happy.
    My wife ordered the eggs Benedict, the hollandaise sauce is made fresh in house we were told, and it’s absolutely delicious!
    The staff was so very kind and welcoming, we really felt like we were somewhere we’d been going for years. We can’t wait to come back and try other dishes

  35. Nicholas Mccreary

    Best breakfast joint in skagit Valley! This is such an amazing restaurant. From the food to service to environment. Everything is top notch!

  36. elpete77

    Billy’s is a great place with great cafe food, great cafe atmosphere, great cafe coffee, and great cafe staff. And the take home pot pies are legit. Almost 2 legit.

  37. Wendy Porter

    This place has excellent breakfast, we drive about 40 mile just to have breakfast here. Not our first time and won’t be our last. Staff is so nice and friendly, food is delicious.

  38. N Z (Scorpionfury)

    WOW!!! Our first time here and we were so impressed with the food and service. Great, big piping hot cups of coffee along with our Tomato Bacon Eggs Benedict were excellent. The showstopper, without a doubt, is their Biscuits & Gravy! UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS! Be sure to plan time; we thought we’d miss the breakfast rush going at 10:00 on a Monday, but even then they were packed. Definitely a local favorite and, now, one of ours too! Highly recommended! We will definitely be back! THANK YOU!

  39. Brandon

    Classic hometown cafe with a feel straight out of a Hallmark movie! The food and service were excellent!

  40. J T

    Big portions, big flavors, friendly staff.
    An classic American cafe.
    More than a bit of a trek, but worth the trip.

  41. Trevor Garrett

    Crying all over the news because the owner chose to put his politics over public health during a pandemic.
    The mandate requiring a mask until seated was pretty minimalistic, simple and easy to follow. That’s why none of the other restaurants in the region got hit with fines.
    This owners personal politics and crying all over the news are HIS problems! What a child.

  42. Gene Goncalves

    Pancakes are always burnt sometimes more than others not my favorite pancake place obviously the rest was okay

  43. Ryan French

    WARNING: CASH ONLY. This place only accepts cash. They have a sign on the door, but they prop the door open so it’s not easily visible on nicer days. It made our visit extremely unpleasant, as we had to figure out a way to get cash after we got our bill. Not something we’d expect from a restaurant charging $20 for a burger.

    Food was just okay. If you’re looking for a quick bite off the freeway, I’d recommend going elsewhere.

  44. Corbeck Snellenberg

    Country Benedict is a great way to serve biscuits and gravy with sausage patties. Will definitely be bring friends and family here for some local breakfast only a hometown cafe can serve.

  45. Mannen O'Brien

    Love coming here. Best chicken fried steak you’ll ever have. Massive portions. Great people. The only downfall is that they’re more popular than their seating can accommodate so sometimes the wait can be a little long. Well worth it however.

  46. River Falls

    A little on the spendy side for a bacon cheeseburger w/ fries and a soda. But I believe you get what you pay for. I was craving a delicious Burger and Billy’s delivered. They will even make fresh bacon for you. Cash only restaurant. $19.51

  47. Mattie Powers

    Has been fined multiple times by LNI for anti mask mandates…. Accepts cash only so the state isn’t notified of doing business. Don’t support a business who cares more about money than their customers safety! Was sad because they have good breakfast

  48. Steven Goldstein

    Takes only cash. I can’t speak on food or service.

  49. Jordan Walton (Altruistic Fool)

    Service was good, but the everything tasted either watered down or over salted in my experience. Eggs over medium were good. The homemade biscuit(which is a monster size) had the consistency of a dense scone, soft but sucks up any moisture it comes in contact with. Coffee was watered down.

    If you’re looking for a lot of food on your plate this place is for you. In my opinion it’s not a 4.6 but to each their own.

  50. L L

    Dont be fooled by the small town appearance of this little cafe on the outside (some of those are the best anyway!) This place has got wonderful eats! Locals are lucky to live in a town with food this good! 10/10 for me!!

  51. Pamela Santangelo

    Pretty typical greasy spoon. It’s over priced for what it is, even before the pandemic. If you want an amazing breakfast go to Joy’s in Sedro-Woolley. This place is down the street from our office and we used to get breakfast/ lunch there somewhat often. The last several times the food just wasn’t as good and while we may try them again in the future; the owners behavior during the pandemic is also rather appalling and I’d rather not support this business any longer.

  52. Insiteand awareness

    It has the old diner feeling to it and the food was very good and the service was excellent. After eating here I just didn’t feel well it could be anything in the food that I was allergic to but my boyfriend didn’t feel bad like me and he loved his food too. I would eat here again but I might just order pancakes instead of the omelet I had. It seems like a local hang out. Very homey and friendly.

  53. Michael Neel

    Cash only is accepted – food is very good. Platters, scrambles and more traditional breakfasts are all good choices. Servers have been excellent on my visits. Check schedule as they have an unusual one. Certain mid week days they close entirely. I believe it may be a staffing issue.
