Decent Mexican-American food on Piedmont Park that has a lot of non-customers walking through to use the bathrooms

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... read 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

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.
