“The owners/cooks are from Turkey and the food is AUTHENTIC!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2011

Willy's has been established for over twenty five years in this little strip mall on East Ball Road, not too far from the freeway. There is plenty of parking in the large lot adjoining, so that is no problem. The atmosphere is easy, like a diner with framed pictures on the wall, including the wedding pictures of the owners. They emigrated from Turkey and make the most wonderful lunch gyros sandwiches around. The sandwiches are served with a Greek salad and a drink at a special price, and is consistently the best deal around. But that is not why you should go. You should go in the morning (they open at eight) and have their Eggs Benedict which is a true specialty for them. The ham is thick and tasty, and the eggs are done just right...but the sauce is just absolutely terrific and worth having the dish. This order is served with fried potatoes (get the ones with onions and green peppers, not the "plain") which also become extraordinary when the sauce is combined. All in all, a great institution for a wonderful meal.
