QC Restaurant Week Day 5: You can’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day without “Me & Billy”

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

QC Restaurant Week takes us to the perfect location for our fifth day to celebrate 5 years of "Me & Billy."

Owner Billy Collins tells us that he got the idea from one of his daughters. "Fran and her husband Jordan moved to Chicago and lived there for five years. When they came back home, they said we need a cool place here."

That's where it started and it's been like opening day ever since.

Billy says his Shrimp and Grits might be the best seller, but it could be the "Potless Pie." If you need a third choice, go with the author's favorite: The Deluxe Damn Big Grilled Cheese.

Me & Billy recently expanded and now has two party rooms available. If you're in need of a seated event up to 50-55 people, the accommodations are top-notch.

And for St. Patrick's Day, this might be the epicenter for the Quad Cities' celebration! Doors open at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 16th for the Grand Parade. To get you in the mood, you can pop on down now for a Guinness, a green Coors Light, the "Fat Frog" cocktail, or a Smithwick's. Just be sure to order that one by saying "Smiddicks."
