Have eaten at this Willies mor than a dozen times and the food is always good no matter what is ordered. I have had the pulled pork and it was good but my favorite is the Buffalo Chicken sandwich with crispy fries. The sauce is tangy, the chicken is always tender and the rolls are soft and tasty. I get... More

This ws our second time and the so-so first experience didn't improve with the second visit. Maybe the food just isn't my style. It is okay, but doesn't wow, for sure. You order at the counter and then eventually a server confirms the order and after that at some point, they bring it. We had several mix ups at our... More

The dinner was amazing - fried pickles, fried green beans, and steak fingers. The place was pretty busy, so we spent quite a bit of time chatting with the bar staff. Super friendly, talkative, and generally fun to be around.

On our way from the San Antonio Airport to our hotel by the Riverwalk, my Texas resident son took us to Willie's for lunch. He said, "Mom, you have to order their turkey mushroom burger!" Certainly glad that I took his advice, as it was delicious! Was a bit confused about their policy of paying for your food after you... More

This is not the actually willie's that we went to, they don't have the IH10 and Leon Springs location, but I will say, that almost every week we are in there, We love the convenience of it and the food at this location is quite tastey. We really enjoy coming, we try to get Lee as our server, she goes... More

It has both inside and outside seating as well as a number of well placed Flat panel TVs so that those enjoying the food and drink and keep up with their favorite teams... More

Tasty burgers but ensure you tell someone if you want it cooked less than well. We went on Saturday with kids but it got crazy busy after noon. We slid in just before and it was fine. Next time we will try wings which looked good. We hit the Leon Springs location and it was great. Tip: one brownie dessert... More
