Billy Bob's Texas

The folks visited Fort Worth on Saturday.  Dad wanted to visit Billy Bob's which is the "world's largest honky-tonk".  There is a $2 cover charge any time that you visit.  Mama didn't know what to expect, but she thought it would have a nice restaurant.  BOL!  It is a honky-tonk, Mama.

 After you pay your cover charge, you enter a hallway with hand prints. The hand prints belong to celebrities.  Most of the hand prints are from country singers, but there are some rock stars as well.

The hand print that has all the red lipstick is that of Blake Shelton.  The only thing Mama could think of was all the germs.  BOL!
 There is a small restaurant area and that area has hamburger buns signed by stars.






Mama ordered a chicken fried steak sandwich and fries.  The sandwich came plain, no gravy.  It was good though.


 The fried pickles were really good.   She kept asking Dad what kind of pickles he thought they were because they were so good.


Dad's BBQ looked really messy.  He said the turkey was good.


This was the restaurant.

A view of Billy Bob's

Willie Nelson's guitar.  He has played there a lot.

Wow!  Blake Shelton has really changed.

Charlie Daniel's fiddle.

Rick Springfield's guitar.  Mama used to really like him.

Brett Michael's guitar.

A bear that was just there. BOL!

This is made from cow hide.

Bull riding ring.  Yep, it is right there in the honky-tonk.


Mama said it was interesting to see Billy Bob's.  She wouldn't want to be there at night when everyone is partying.  The place smelled of smoke when it was empty, so when it is full of people it is probably really bad.  Yep, it is one of the few places where people are still allowed to smoke.
