Since 1938 Bill Gray’s name has been known to the Rochester, NY area. Bill and his wife, Alberta started by operating a roadside stand near their home in Webster on weekends selling hot dogs and soda pop.  After four years the business provided more income than he was making working at Eastman Kodak.

Fast forward to the year 1965 when Bruce Hegedorn and Bill Gray formed Bill Gray’s Incorporated and opened a new restaurant at 364 NYS Rt. 104 in Ontario. A second restaurant opened on Culver Rd., near Sea Breeze and a third opened in 1978 on Hard Rd., near Ridge Rd., close to the original Bill Gray’s in Webster.

Currently, there are 14 locations in the Rochester area operating with the same standards set by Bill and his wife, Alberta based on excellent customer service.

The Ontario location offers a tap room, Abbotts frozen custard, and a full menu featuring Bill’s Famous Burgers along with seafood options, a variety of fries and sides, gluten free and kids meals, and online ordering. For a menu and daily coupons go to www.billgrays.comor call 585-265-0055.  Hours are Sunday through Saturday, 10:30 AM to 9 PM.   Indoor and outdoor seating is available now at 100% capacity.

Congratulations to Bill Gray’s as the Business of the Month for June, 2021. This program is sponsored by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Inc.
