Pleasantly suprised by the food

I wasn't expecting much given the ambiance, but the seafood platter was tasty and the service was good. The downside is that you have to wait in line to order and then hope there is a table available after. Even if there are not tables, they still take orders and your kids have to stand around... read more

Went for the crawfish boil. Was great! The seasoning was so good and the service was great. That was our first time here and I guarantee, we will be back!

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.
