Best Tex Mex East of San Antoine!

This is the real deal. If you are searching for real Tex Mex place you must eat here. The food is authentic and the restaurant is run by a family that has it's roots in Mexico and Texas. BYOB and every Tex Mex dish is fabulous. Enjoy!

Chili Willies is a local favorite. Everything is always fresh and tastes great. The specials are always something you would actually order too. Its a small place with a big and friendly heart. The salsa is always freshly made. I always ask for the homemade hot sauce to go along with my meal. They have the largest local selection of... More

My family and I have been to Chilli Willies many times and always have an enjoyable meal. It was a good place to take children who were somewhat picky on what they ate.

I went with a group of co workers, the Resturant is small (15 or so tables), staff was firmly and attentive, and the food amazing. The quality and flavor of the burrito and enchilada were the best I've had. Serving size was huge almost enough for two to share which is the plan for the next visit. Value was great.... More

We go all the time. Right on Main Street in downtown Boonton. Excellent food and excellent prices. BYOB. Guacamole is always fresh and tasty. Likewise for homemade salsa whose spiciness is between that of store-bought mild and medium. The Chile Rellenos are great. So are the quesadillas and enchiladas and burritos. One of our regular places to eat.

At the recommendation of a local friend, we ate lunch here. Not liking spicy foods, I was leery of what to order. The owner/waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was fresh, tasty, and cooked to order. The chips and salsa appetizer were a little hot, but not overpowering. I would definitely eat here again. Parking on the main... More

We have probably been here about 20 times. Best Mexican restaurant in the local area. The owners are really friendly and always have a smile on their face! BYOB. If there is a line out front you can usually get seated pretty quick if you can wait 10-15 minutes. Check out the enchilada with mole sauce if they have it... More

JUST AWFUL.I eat alot of mexican food and this was not up to par. The prices are very high for such bad quality. I myself am in the resturant buisness and let me tell you these people have no idea how to run a functioning resturant.
