Famous Willies has the best barbecue I have had outside of Texas. You can smell the smoke house blocks before you get there. The restaurant is pretty small, so we tend to get things to go. They also have different home made pies that will melt in your mouth and a wonderful German style potato salad.

Decided to give this one another try, since it had been so long. Still not impressed with the smoked food there, overpriced. Actually had such gas and discomfort after eating...it's a NO for us. Much prefer other BBQ spots. Even the chocolate pecan pie was a disappointment, compared to our favorite in CdA.

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.
