Good 'que

The brisket was excellent, my wife's bbq chicken salad was good, and my son loved the ribs. They also have a good beer selection. Our waiter was friendly and helpful.

The BBQ is good but what I didn't like was seeing a large cockroach when I visited the bathroom. I haven't been back since but if they've taken care of that the I would.

We arranged for our company Christmas party here. They were very accommodating and the smoked meats are scrumptious. We had 27 people and the service was quick, and refills and adjustments were made promptly and with a friendly manner.

My family and I did a Take Out package a few weeks ago. It is 2 lbs of meat and 3 sides. Plenty of food for dinner & lunch the next day! One of the sides wasn't in the carry out bag, so I called to just let them know & they drove it out to our home! We were... More

My husband, son and I went to Smoking Willy on Tuesday night for an alumni gathering. It's not a very big restaurant, but it more than made up for it with the quality of food. We love good barbeque, and it is sometimes hard to find someplace locally. This is close enough to where we live that we will visit... More

My wife and I went to Smoking Willy on a whim on a Saturday night. We were there around 8:30 and were able to have a quiet dinner. We were seated as soon as we opened the door. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We had the brisket plate with mac-n-cheese and the shredded brisket sandwich w/roasted vegetables. The... More

We initially enjoyed the food and the service, and frequented the restaurant several times last year. Our problems started when we also tried the "take-out" for a quick weekday meal. That was a major FAIL. We tried several times but we never received the correct food, and found it cold on top of that. The last time we tried to... More

I would like to see Willy's "busier". I think it's the best BBQ / Tex Mex / Southwestern joint in town - in my opinion. The have great pork BBQ sandwiches and GREAT pork and fish tacos. Family friendly, decent service.

Despite being in a strip mall SW has the feel of a true BBQ joint. Sometimes the service is a bit slow and there are not too many 'health conscious choices' the do a mean BBQ and it keeps us coming back often. More salad choices would be nice, but they do not disappoint if you are a BBQ afficianodo.

Delicious barbecue and great draft selection! We had a great cross-section of their meats, side dishes and beers. Really enjoyed the ribs - big, thick and juicy. Chicken breast is wonderfully flavorful and moist. The lightly smoked turkey breast was a pleasant surprise. I don't usually think of turkey with barbecue but they did a great job with it here....
