This restaurant is unique. It is an old house renovated into a restaurant. The food is wonderful. We would definitely go back, if in the area again.

My husband and I just recently found this little gem and decided to give it a try, they had outside seating as well, and since we are from "the great white north" we decided to enjoy the 100 degree weather on the covered patio. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and I had the spicy sausage hoagie, we both... More

The food was awesome, quiet little BBQ in a house turned restaurant. Home cooking for the family. Even the homemade caramel corn is great.

Great food comes to your table quickly and the crew is always smiling and helpful. Eat indoors or out, or take it to go! Willie's has been a fantastic addition to the flavor of Post Falls :)

Service was fast and friendly. The brisket was tender but lacked a good smoke ring. Chicken was unremarkable but OK. Beans were very nice and the coleslaw was good. Maybe May standard is a bit higher than the norm with serious exposure to Texas BBQ.

These guys have such good beef brisket! It is so tender, and smoky. They cook it all day, and every time I drive by I want to stop. It is in a little house, and it is such a cool atmosphere. All of the staff is so helpful, polite, and quick. The homemade pies are also really good! I would... More

My group went to Willies today for lunch and ate outside on the deck. That was nice. Ordered the special bbq brisket, chopped, with a side. The meat was pretty good, but the standard size sandwich, on a non- impressive basic looking hamburger bun was on the small size. They offer a Texas size, but really, that should be the... More
