I would very much like to complain about some of the type of background music you play in your restaurant especially during dinner time. The music that is very disturbing to me is when you play “hard rock” (or “heavy rock”) music. It’s typified by a heavy use of aggressive vocals, distorted electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and often accompanied... More

The food was very good, the service was quick and there was enough variety on the menu to satisfy all six members of my family. We loved the tri-tip and the BBQ Brisket sandwich.

This is a standard for many Cupertino folks and visitors. Good BBQ and I like their fish tacos. The parking is a little on the thin side so go early if you can. Good for lunch and dinner. Walking distance from Apple Computers many buildings in the Village and right next to Seagate.

The food is very good-I just do not know about 'Great.' They are adding items to the menu that are really good-the new Thai burger was a hit with me-will be going back just for that one alone! The garlic parmesan fries are pretty yummy here also.

Going mid week was great, I hate the crowds and the noise and the fact that if you are with anyone you cannot hear what they are saying, we went on a Tuesday, it was perfect

I just tried the Salmon Burger (seasonal) at Armadillo Willy's. It was awesome. All of their meat dishes are and the fries (regular or sweet potato) are awesome! Love the BBQ sauce, love the kids specials, like the new menu...a do not miss for families and those that love BBQ at a resonable price.

I've been lucky enough to be enjoying their food from about when the original opened. Although the menu and location(s) have changed a bit over the years, I always leave feeling full and happy. The sliced brisket sandwich is still my favorite

This place is has great barbeque at a definitely reasonable price. I have tried many of their burgers and sandwiches, which have all been fantastic, and they cost about $7! They have a early bird special before dinner (not sure which days exactly) where burgers are half price. Overall, Armadillo Willy's is great for affordable tasty barbeque. They are also... More

This site stays in business. However, the bar b que is really average and not at all meaty. It is on average with one that you get at a grocery store.
