Outstanding BBQ

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

My family LOVES BBQ. I finally got them to go try Willies out. I have had BBQ from all over, TX, TN...So I was excite to finally try a much touted BBQ place in my home town. Here is the break down: GOOD-Meatty thick ribs, tasty potato salad & cold slaw. Not bad-beans, BBQ sauce. They have 4 differnt sauces.... More

I have eaten brisket in Kansas City, Memphis, Austin, LA, and Charlotte... Famous Willies in Post Falls, Idaho is the best brisket in America! Sauced with the house made cattleman's it is simply sublime. Interesting and delectable coleslaw and oh so toothsome ranch beans rounds out this smokey slice of heaven.

This is my favorite place for great barbecue ribs plus other specialties. Before finding Willies I smoked my own ribs at home and they were delicious. Now I can get the same quality from this restaurant. The side dishes are also very good. Either eat in or order to go. You won't be disappointed.

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.

On our way to Sandpoint Idaho with friends we found this little place for lunch. It was wonderful! We had four adults and two teens, and there was something for everyone . The smoked sausage was awesome. Red beans and rice, excellent ! The kids loved the chicken and don't miss the buttermilk pie for dessert . We will definitely... More

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.
