Billy’s History

Established in 1990 as a family-owned business by Bill and Barbara Bradley, Billy’s was built on a passion for great food and creating an inviting atmosphere for both locals and visitors alike. In 2018, the business was by the Wildermuth family – Matt, Heather, Mark and JoAnne – ensuring Billy’s remains a true family operation to this day. With two to three generations of Wildermuths on-site, you can expect that warm, family touch in every aspect of your visit.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll be treated like one of our own by our incredible staff. Take a look around and prepare to be amazed by the authentic East Coast deli delicacies, the harvest of high-quality meats and seafood, and our extensive collection of wines and craft beers to complement any meal. It’s a feast for the senses unlike anything else in Southern California.

The accolades speak for themselves – Billy’s was honored as the “Top Alternative Deli” in all of Southern California by KTLA Channel 5. And year after year, we are voted by San Clemente residents as having the best sandwiches in town, earning either a gold or silver medal for 17 consecutive years. In 2023, we were the silver medalist for “Best Specialty Market” too.

But why do locals and visitors alike love us so much? It’s simple – we believe that in this stressful world, your time at Billy’s should be a moment of pure joy and satisfaction. Once you’ve experienced our incredible food and hospitality, you’ll leave with a full belly and an upbeat spirit, ready to tackle anything life throws your way.

Our Butcher Shop: A Carnivore’s Delight

At the heart of Billy’s is our butcher shop, staffed by true masters of their craft who are passionate about their work. Whether you have a hankering for a sublime ribeye steak, a succulent cut of salmon, or something more exotic like a whole roasting pig to serve Hawaiian luau-style, our butchers will go above and beyond to procure the perfect proteins for your needs.

We take great pride in only offering the highest quality meats and seafood, including 100% choice and prime Black Angus beef, a rotating selection of premium seafood, ready-to-grill marinated dishes, pork and poultry, and specialty items like whole turkeys and standing rib roasts for the holidays. Our butchers will even provide expert preparation and cooking tips free of charge.

To elevate your home cooking experience, we maintain a vast array of spices, dry rubs, marinades and more from around the world. And to make Billy’s a true one-stop-shop, we also stock fresh produce, side dishes and other accompaniments so you can assemble a complete, crowd-pleasing meal with ease.

​For generations, families across San Clemente have made Billy’s their holiday headquarters for Thanksgiving, Christmas and more. Our team works tirelessly to ensure your holiday meal shopping is an annual tradition filled with warmth and cheer. From the perfect turkey or prime rib to all the gravies, stuffing, sides and condiments your feast requires, we’ll make sure you have everything you need for a memorable celebration.

The Deli Masters’ Sandwiches

Of course, we’d be remiss not to highlight the true superstars of Billy’s – our world-famous Deli Master sandwiches. Our team of sandwich artisans view every creation as a work of edible art, handcrafting each one with a masterful attention to detail.

Make no mistake, a Deli Master sandwich is no ordinary deli sandwich. These are bonafide made-to-order delicacies overflowing with premium ingredients like freshly-baked breads, crisp locally-grown produce, award-winning meats and cheeses from brands like Boar’s Head, and our very own house-smoked and roasted specialties like roast beef, pulled pork, chicken and even meatballs.
