      Burgers are good
      My review is limited...I went on a Monday evening to simply get something to eat and have a drink before going to my next destination. There were not many people in there, but then again it was Monday. Jason was the bartender and he is probably the most engaging, and fun bartender that I have dealt with. The drinks he fixed were also great. If I lived in the area I would definitely go back. I ordered a burger and fries and it was very good. A much larger burger than what I am used to eating, but I enjoyed it.

      Smokey. Old. Ugly. Fat.
      Friday night growl. Guys who like extra cheese on their pizza and NEVER go to the gym.

      Since when do bear bars become infested with drag queens, BAD ONES, performing Disney Tunes.

      Daddy bar?
      Went here a couple times while on vacation. This place is huge! Wednesday night (I think) had a karaoke contest and a mixed crowd. Came back on a Friday night and it was packed! I would describe the crowd on Friday as mostly bearish and 30+.

      Amazing Bear night, Growl Fridays and Trannie Palace Sundays coupled with a great burger, make Bill's a best all around bet. Thousands of photos and event info on Mar's List here:

      Hmmmmmmmm ....
      I am a local and have mixed reviews on this place. The Village Pub has just opened and it has had an affect on Bills. The place used to be a hit on Friday nights but the Pub has stolen a lot of their patrons. They need a renovation and it looks like it could be a seedy gay bar in Reno. They are trying but not hard enough. It has a great location so stop by and see what's there... Mainly bears on Friday nights and a mix on the other nights.... Time will tell what happens to this place...

      Get Your Fill
      Bill's Filling Station is aptly-named for many reasons. It's often full of men, even though there's plenty of space between the dance floor and surrounding areas. It's easy to get full of alcohol, with the generous happy hour prices and other specials. And if you get hungry, the adjacent Courtyard Cafe is an easy way to fill up on some comfort food in a more casual (though no less gay) environment. The crowd can range from bears to drag to twinks, with a few women, but Bill's is often dominated by the bear crowd at most peak hours. A location directly across the street from the gay ground-zero Wilton Manors commercial center helps keep the place busy as well.

      Great - but can be hit and miss
      First night here was soooo kewl, great crowd and funny stage show / karaoke. Next night was just as fun, not as busy and a bit more country. Third night was not so busy and the crowd were a little more.... Worth checking out if you're across the road at Georgies!

      A Bar That Covers All Bases
      Multitask bar: Nice dance floor, bar section for the rough men, and a piano lounge. I seem to work well, friendly staff, and people, and you'll never get bored, especially on Thursday nights. Some days pack to the max, they sponsor fund raising, and pool table contest, and hot men contest. You can also relax at the piano lounge; play it again Sam.
