Gill Out: Billy’s Tavern

Living in South Florida, it’s nearly impossible to be a Pittsburgh Steelers’ season ticket holder. As a second-generation Pittsburgher, I can confidently say that Billy’s Tavern is the next best thing.

But you don’t have to be a Steelers fan to enjoy Billy’s Tavern. Football games are a special event at Billy’s Tavern. It’s always a packed house – to the point that tents and TVs are set up in the parking lot. Reservations on game days are needed if you want to reserve a spot in what is like a “standing-room only” section with other die-hard football fans.

A weeknight game from earlier this season between the Panthers and the Steelers brought many fans out to Billy’s Tavern. With the tents and TVs set up, service was extended to the parking lot. Many fans had a rooting interest, but many did not. Good food and a great atmosphere are the winning game plan for any sports fan.

It doesn’t have to be a game day for Billy’s Tavern to be the right place to enjoy lunch or dinner with good company. The staff is friendly and sports are always on the TVs. An assortment of wings, burgers and much more are on the menu, but their wings truly stand out. For six years in a row, their wings have been voted the “Best of Davie and Cooper City” by Sun-Sentinel’s readers.

You can get their award-winning wings doused in one of 18 different sauces – “myong wings,” with loads of garlic, are the fan favorites. Keeping with the Pittsburgh Steelers theme, Billy’s Tavern also has a “Roethlis-burger” which is claimed to be “large enough for Big Ben!” Lastly, if you’re looking for a classic Western Pennsylvania dish, go with the “Steel City Pierogies.” They won’t disappoint.

You’ll find Billy’s Tavern located on State Road 84, just east of Pine Island Road. It’s about a 10 minute drive from NSU.

If you don’t take advantage of NSU’s Fins Football or just want a great environment to watch Monday Night Football games, Billy’s Tavern is the place to be.

Heinz Field may be 1,156 miles North, but Billy’s Tavern makes you feel right at home.
