Billy’s – The Best Alternative to McDonald’s
Where to start, well let’s start with the fact I think this is the best burger joint you can visit in Karachi if you have small kids and you don’t want to spend a lot.
Billy’s is the best place you can visit if your kids are heavy on the kids or happy meal. They make pretty decent burgers that the adults can enjoy too.
Happy Meal, well not exactly its called a kids meal, and this is something that I have been looking for. I mean kids don’t wanna go to any other place other than McDonald’s. My elder kid still wants a happy meal just due to the toy.
I have tried many places and most places toys aren’t that good, McDonald on the other hand gives food that is just not up to the taste anymore. My elder kid stays hungry even after finishing the burger so have to add a chicken piece as well than the younger kid doesn’t like burgers so gets stuck with 4 nuggets hence remaining hungry.
Billy’s kid meals actually give you Incredible figures, decent quality but the option of a kids meal with chicken pieces keeps the little one’s tummy full and the elder one loves the taste of the burger which is also chicken. If you go to the store they are nice enough to let you pick your toy also which is an added advantage.
I have had their cheese-steak and MnM. I just love mushrooms, so last time we ordered the mushroom melt and 4 pieces chicken deal. The chicken deal only cost 750 with 2 drinks fries 4 chicken tenders and 4 chicken pieces.
The burger was 450 rs and the kids’ meal was 300 rs each a total bill of 1800 PKR was sufficient for 3 adults and 2 kids (both below 10). This is an amazing bargain. We had to wait a good 30 to 45 mins but the food was hot and fresh, I do hope they keep it this way. The burger was a beef burger and was very tasty.
I do wish they start keeping diet Coke or Pepsi as the only option was 7up zero which I am not a fan of. But over I would recommend this place to anyone who is light on the budget yet wants a decent meal where the kids won’t eat their head.
Other than this I have also tried their cheese-steak burger, and that along with the MnM is a must. Perfectly cooked beef, while not authentic cheesesteak it was totally packed with flavor and cooked to perfection. This will keep me coming back for more.
Well simply it’s a must-visit place for families, Outside and inside seating is available, just be ready for a wait as they take forever to serve you. Maybe short staffed but it’s worth the wait and the kids will have a great time.
