Great food, generous portions, reasonably priced and friendly service. What more could you want? Oh yes, it's BYO.

“Ok but winner?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I guess it's easy to be an award winning restaurant in Boonton. Food is just ok. Nice wait staff but I won't go back to pay so much for so-so meal.

“Not a bad choice for Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

One of the previous reviews said this was the best Mexican Restaurant in the area. I'd agree, but honestly, that's not saying much. Good Mexican restaurants in North Jersey are few and far between.

The service here was good, but the food was just average, in my opinion. You could certainly do worse, but don't go out of your way

“By far the best mexican restaruant around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2010

When i lived in Boonton, i took advantage of having great Mexican food at chilli willies. I soon moved to New York City and was surprised that i could not satisfy my craving for delicious authentic Mexican food. Living in NYC you would think you could find a great Mexican restaurant, however, most seem commercialized and chain-like and serve processed food and the atmosphere is a poor attempt at an authentic ambiance. Chilli willies has it all- real home cookin, always flavored perfectly and served with a big smile and with great service. Did i mention its a BYOB? who could beat this? My wife and i take the ride to boonton when we have are in the mood for mexican. I do not often write a personal reviews, but chili willis is worth mentioning. I suggest the cowboy burritos and the bbq chicken burritos. Having been to Mexico several times, I can say this is better than anything we have eaten there.
