I am writing about the Willy's on the outskirts of the Georgia State campus. The food was forgettable and overpriced, about on par with Baja Fresh and significantly worse than Chipotle and Qdoba. The location is convenient and seating is ample, but the strangest thing happened to me both times I went there. The first time I went there, my... More

In town on vacation; wanted good Mex. fare; never eaten at a Willy's before; quick service; great variety of food; food was excellent, well prepared; nothing fancy about restaurant; just good, wholesome eating! Great free salsa selection from mild to hot-hot. Would definitely eat at Willy's when in town.

Willy's came on the Atlanta scene in the late 1990's at the same time Moe's was getting up and running BUT where Moe's went big, Willy's stayed relatively small and true to it's character, as a Cali-Mex burrito bar with a focus on quality and fresh ingredients. There are many locations throughout the Atlanta/suburban area. I live in the area... More

Our family enjoys the food and outside venue of this restaurant on the park. It is rustic but reliable.

I ordered the Adobe chicken burrito and it was not fresh. I walk thinking maybe all the walking I did at piedmont park had something to do with it, but soon I realized it wasnt. I got sick to my stomach and what went down came right back up. YUCK!!!! The chicken was cold and the veggies wasn't fresh. I... More

I love that this place is right next to Piedmont Park and that they have outdoor seating. We were able to sit outside and tie our dog outside while we had lunch.

The location and service are nice. The food is just ok. The chicken was pretty much tasteless. The other ingrediants are as expected, but it sucks to pay extra for 2 salsas in your burrito, or for peppers and onions.

The location is great! Just pop in after your activities in Piedmont Park and refuel. Unfortunately, the food is average at best. I had the grande quesadilla. The burrito bowl is palatable also. Overall, the food is glad and tasteless. Plus, they charge extra for toppings which are normally included at other establishments of this sort.

I was pleasantly surprised by Willy's Mexicana Grill in the Atlanta airport. Strapped for time, exhausted, and starving I found myself in the line for Willy's because it was fast and I just couldn't walk any further. I wondered the whole time if "airport mexican food" was anything but a mistake until I took my first bite of my veggie... More

I visited the Atlanta Airport North Terminal location for a quick breakfast before catching a flight. I ordered the breakfast burrito with sausage, hash browns, cheese and salsa (actually pico de gallo but they called it salsa). Overall, the burrito was bland and in need of seasoning. The texture was mushy like baby food. The sausage was burned and even... More
