Not every restaurant can do both deep-fried and caramelized onions well. These people can. The burger was fine, but the sides and toppings made the meal special.

My family always stops in at Wild Willys in Maine so after spending the day in Boston I decided to stop in their Watertown location. As in Maine, and Worcester, the burgers are very good and the fresh squeezed lemonade is fantastic. The service was excellent and the decor was very cool. They are not the best burgers in New...

Wild Willy's serves great cooked-to-order-burgers and delicious shakes. Also, excellent fries. They have a greta assortment of toppings and the burgers (regardless of whether regular, Angus or grass fed) are always tasy.

If you're looking for a great burger in a casual dining environment, this is the place for you. In addition to the variety of burger choices, they do have a nice selection of sides and also homemade root beer you can actually buy in a growler. During peak times there can sometimes be a slight wait for food, but it's... More

Definitely worth a stop. Burgers are of very good quality and sides are all homemade. We had fries and they were excellent. For 3 people was a decent value also.

I eat a "high end" burger place at least once a month. And Wild Willy's Burgers is one of my favorites in the Boston area. I like the Conastoga burger with the Hardwick beef. I add in bacon (yum) and jalapeños. Plus, the sweet potato fries and regular fries are a treat as well. Add in a nice large Root... More

Wild Willy's isn't a fancy place. You order at the counter, and someone brings you your food. But what burgers! You can choose from 3 grades of beef: Angus (good), Pineland Farm natural beef (better), and 100% grass-fed Hardwick beef (best). Willy's also offers more than a dozen combinations, from the Bandito (sauteed onions and cheddar) to the Conestoga, my... More

One of the tastiest burgers I've had. Perfectly cooked and packed with juice. Hand cut onion rings were delicious and the Orange Spritzer was delicious. All 3 of us had different burgers and they were all delicious. Going back next time I'm in the neighborhood.

Just what you want in a burger joint. I had the Annie Oakley which was great. The fries are handcut as are the chicken tenders. I just wish I had ordered the onion rings!

Nice to be able to select your type of beef and the grass-fed beef is really good. You can get virtually anything you want on a burger including Hatch peppers. Cooked perfectly to your chosen temperature is a real plus. The only negatives are the hard benches and can soda. However they do have some specialty drinks that are quite... More
