Good food fast

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

This Wild Willy's is the BEST. My husband and I live nearby and this is our go to spot for easy dinners out. They make the best burgers in town...juicy, good size, cooked right, lots of toppings.. They also make amazing chicken sandwiches. Both the sweet potato fries and the onion rings are the best I've had. The sweet potato... More

Wild willy's has to have some of the best burgers in the northeast. We never pass up an opportunity to eat here if we are near by. We were at a day long workshop at a the Carroll School for the Blind and realized that this restaurant was close, so we had lunch. Food and service excellent. Our burgers and... More

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.
