Best barbecue north of Texas

We like to pop by here when in the mood for good smokehouse barbecue. The smoked brisket will melt in your mouth. I also love the German pototato salad. The inside is pretty small so we usually get ours to go. The wait staff is the best.

The place is hard to find but very worth it. It is run by a very friendly family originally from Texas, They do know how to make a great sandwich and very reasonable prices

I'm a huge fan of BBQ and these guys are definitely good smokers and very friendly. I guess my main beef (pun intended) was that they didn't have any pulled pork and in my opinion the chopped beef or pork sandwiches were too much of a pain to eat as the meat kept falling out all over. The pie and... More

I am obsessed with famous willies BBQ. Decided to take a lb. of brisket to a friends house as an appetizer rather than attempt cooking something on my own short notice. Best decision I could have made. I've been to FWBbq many times before, sides just ok, brisket unbeatable, sausage spicy and fabulous, homemade peach pie that I can't get... More

Great friendly service, unfortunately the food was way too salty and bland. My cousin and I ordered brisket, potato salad, and the chile beans. I could honestly say I didn't like anything.

I've visited Post Falls, Idaho several times and this was my first but definitely not my last visit to Famous Willies. Famous Willies is a house converted into a restaurant in an unassuming neighbourhood. I had a combination plate with brisket and Cajun pork ribs. The menu says it's a combined total of 8oz of protein, however i believe just... More

I live in St Louis where BBQ is a more like a religion. Famous Willies is a superior BBQ restaurant. The BBQ was incredible and they don't skimp on their servings. All food is cooked locally and the taste is incredible. Service was outstanding.

We had great meals at Willie's. Tried their ribs (super tender and meaty), their smoked brisket (both sliced and chopped for a sandwich - some of the best!), potato salad (had a hint of horseradish - good!), coleslaw (with chopped apples - yummy) and baked beans. It was all delicious! Even shared a piece of their peach cobbler for dessert.... More
