Dinner before shopping

Willies is good for lunch, a quick dinner before other errands or an evening after working all week! On weekends there is live music and the patio; I've heard some good original artists in Leon Springs. If you have little ones you should know there are tables outside and a well fenced in sandbox... read more

Came in with high hopes and left with a Meh flavor. The fish tacos had a dry slaw, a hot sauce on it that was too hot, and the fish had no flavor. We had an order of mushrooms with ranch and gravy. That was tasting basic. The tea and sodas had a funny taste. The waitress said they had... More

I had the chicken fried steak, it was delicious. The mashed potatoes were great but too much! My boyfriend had the roadhouse burger, it was so good!!! I had a few bites then wanted more!

One of the best hamburgers I've ever tasted! The steak was delicious too. My sister ordered the catfish and it was also tasty. Great place to take the family and enjoy a good time and a good meal. If I ever return to San Antonio this will be the place to eat.

Food was good. I had fried catfish and grilled shrimp with onion rings. Very good, though they should've notified me of the extra charge for swapping sides. My husband got combo nachos (beef & chicken). They were huge and very good. Staff was friendly. Place was very noisy and crowded, tho. Lots of beer choices but I didn't get one.

I like Willie's because they have a variety of selections and probably the best Chili Cheeseburger you will find. Great salads (large in size, full meal), chicken fried steak is also one of my favorites.

The food is tasty and the flat screens are plentiful for viewing. Always enjoy the fried shrimp and onion rings.. They are great.. Several locations in San Antonio and have visited several and...

My wife and I had a late lunch there today (Fri., Oct 16, 2015). This was our first return visit in over 10 years. The atmosphere is very casual, the side windows were all open and a very nice breeze was gently flowing throughout the dining area. Our server, Bobby, was fantastic. He was very attentive to the order and... More

Met friends for dinner and decided on a poor boy and my wife a regular hamburger. Yep, all good. Also the side of onion rings were a hit. Our server Gina was a hit, she took care of us , a large crowd, all in stride. While at first it seemed like chaos,the system works and you just have to... More

We had a great time here! The food was fantastic and the prices were reasonable. It was a little loud, but not too crazy. The drinks were very good and a little strong. A great visit!
