Awesome location by Piedmont Park

We were out for the afternoon at Piedmont park and got really hungry. Being out of towners, we didn't know if there were any good food joints in walking distance of the Noguchi playplace. This was a welcome surprise - the food is standard burrito fare - but the chips are free and the mango lemonade... read more

This was a welcome surprise - the food is standard burrito fare - but the chips are free and the mango lemonade is a novelty.

I've loved Willy's for over 15 years! I'm moving away from Atlanta this year, and I think it will be the thing I miss most!

I enjoyed my salad with spicy chicken. It reminded me very much of Chipotle's. I would definitely eat there again.

Clean, fresh and delicious! I eat at Willy's at least twice a week; I almost always get the Willy's Salad with tofu. I can only eat half of it, plus it comes with chips and salsa on the side. The leftovers are great for dinner or tomorrow's lunch. I have BEGGED for Willy's Habanero Salsa recipe to no avail. It... More

Affordable menu. Cross between Moe's and Chipotle with a full bar in the back. Had the steak not excellent but good. Husband had pulled pork very happy with. I cannot say enough about the mango lemonade and other fresh organic drinks on tap for unlimited refills. Will be back asap.

I've been to the Willy's near the airport and thought it was great food. This was ok food, but still better than any Chipotle I've been to. I had a Chicken Burrito--Adobe, I think. It was decent and the chicken was good breast meat. With tax it came to $7.02, so not cheap but good. It's inconvenient that this Willy's... More

Had a decent steak salad here. Nothing that I would write home about, but if you want a good meal to fill you up and want it quick, this is a good place to go. Great location right on Piedmont Park. Service was ok.

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
