Billy Bob's HillyBilly BBQ is a small unassuming shack that is located just over the Levee from the Sunbury Launch just below the fabridam. This is a family business that is run by some of the niciest people who take the time to make sure the food is perfect and the atomsphere is welcoming. Everything is basically served to go with some picnic tables right outside. The food is outstanding and slow cooked to perfection and followed up by a sauce that is out of this world.
After putting a full day in on Saturday with travel and kayakfishing in the susquehanna river below the fabridam we were hungry. When we arrived that morning we could smell the smoker/cooker going and saw the sign, we were having BBQ for dinner without having to do anything, but walk 50 yrds. We went over the hill around 6:30 to see what the BBQ shack was all about, right away we were welcomed by Ed jr and a friend who were ready to explain the menu and cooking process in a heartbeat, gave us some recommendations and we order basically everything they had between Hank, John Oast and myself.
While we sat at one of the picnic tables under the corrugated tin roof surrounded by hay bales and country music I was instantly relaxed and hughly surprised by the outstanding food that was in front me. Hank and I were not even done with our first order when we quickly placed another order to eat for later in the night while we fished......
I recommend this place to anyone who fishes that launch or lives in the Sunbury area. The food is great, the service is awesome and its homemade and run by a local family. What more could you ask for.
