There are few reasons to be in Liberal, KS itself, one of them is to visit the Wizard of Oz Museum. However, if for some reason you happen to be traveling on US Routes 83, 160, 64 or 54 in southwest Kansas and have the need for a bite to eat, then Billy’s Blue Duck BBQ is the place to stop.
Sure, you could stop and eat at Applebee’s, Pizza Hut or numerous Mexican, Chinese Buffet’s or fast food restaurants that line the two major streets in Liberal, but why would you? You have already driven this far into the middle of nowhere southwest Kansas along the yellow brick road and that road leads to Billy’s Blue Duck BBQ.
Bottom line is that Billy’s serves good food at a decent price, the service is quick, wait staff friendly and the kitchen staff is good at what they do. It is difficult to describe the interior décor of the restaurant. It is part sport’s bar, part barbeque joint and the results of Jimmy Buffet and Kenny Chesney if the opened a bar together. The menu provides a little bit of something for everyone. You can order some excellent barbeque, Tex-Mex, hamburgers, hot sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, fish and even a steak to name a few. There is also a daily menu selection also offered. Interestingly enough, there are no sandwiches served with deli meat and that is a shame. I am confident that Billy’s could build a killer Reuben sandwich if it was offered.
Billy’s Blue Duck BBQ is consistently crowded with customers for lunch and dinner, with locals and those just travelling through on business or pleasure. It is apparent that when friends come to socialize and eat at Billy’s. Although the restaurant is typically crowded, the service is quick and you will not be waiting long for your meal. Therefore, if you happen to be traveling through southwest Kansas and are looking for a place to eat, stop at Billy’s Blue Duck BBQ and you will not be disappointed.
