Worth a visit, if you like cow!

Chicken sandwich tough like shoe leather. Meal was very disappointing. I did not know if it was overlooked or undercooked. Unchewable

Reviewing Wild Willy's is a simple and easy affair. Their classic, Willy burger is the best-tasting, most consistent burger in town. The patty is juicy and hearty, and the toppings are fresh and crunchy, including lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, cheese, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. When all of these ingredients come together, the burst of flavor is almost overwhelming. Mediocre burgers,... More

Great place for a quick good hamburger. They have many different choices for beef. The choices for hamburgers are plentiful. I go with the Santa Fe or the Annie Oakley. Good draft root beer and I like the onion rings over the fries.

Always willing to pay more for "quality" food than focus on the "quantity". But, don't be mistaken - the grassfeed hamburger with sautéed onions, mushrooms and guacamole is huge. Thankful our two oldest wanted to stop for lunch and I'd forgotten how good their store made lemonade tastes. No high fructose corn syrup, growth hormone, artificially flavored fake-food here.

We like the burgers, french fries and onion rings here. The root beer is also very good. The food is consistently good, which to me is important - I don't like surprises.

Rating is based upon the category of restaurant and what they are trying to do. WW attempts to serve good hamburgers and they succeed admirably in that endeavor. There are 3 categories of beef--certified Angus, natural from Pineland Farms, and Vermont grass-fed. I have not been able to distinguish between the first two; have to try the Vermont next time....

Even if you remove all the fast food burger chains, there are still plenty of places out there that claim delicious burgers. Here, the bun, the cheeses and the beef come together for a delicious party. Their frappes are top notch, the fries are just right and the burgers are awesome.

Fun place. Nice themed decor, good burgers, good shakes, good sweet potato fries. Sort of like an upscale fast-food joint. Recommended
