5 Guys eat your heart out! When it comes to high quality Texas style burgers & fixins, this place nails it👍 The grass fed burgers, bison burgers are my favorite; but I also recommend their root beer floats and frappes. The fries are perfect as well. They also have chicken, fish & vegetarian choices and none of these are compromises.... More

I've been here many times and the quality remains high and the menu grows but along the same path. By that I mean you choose between 3 kinds of beef (all great) and there are chicken choices. But the best thing here is the frappes! I could drink 2 or 3 in a sitting. Coffee is my favorite flavor...yum! I... More

If you're looking for a grass fed or all natural, no hormone burger, then Wild Willy's is it! My kids love their burgers, and so do I. It is a special times lunch spot for us, and it never fails to please. They also sell Maine whoopie pies! Can't beat that!

We often ordered take-out from this restaurant until the visiting on July. We decided to sit in for a quick lunch and have been always thinking this restaurant is a self-serve. As we paid our order first at front desk/cashier and finished the meal later, we trashed our tray and left over. This month when we received credit card statement,... More

Great burgers, the best fries, and great shakes with Gifford ice cream. I wish they made a smaller burger. I have to bring a friend to split the burger shake and fries. On my own sometimes I get fries and a shake, not too healthy or fries and chili which is also good. I really like the fries.

Wild Willys is just great. A few options for the meat and all kinds of variety for the toppings. The fries and milk shakes alone are worth the trip! Simple but delicious menu.

Loved the grass feed meat burgers here. The prices were excellent fire what you where getting. The onion rings were not greasy in the least. If you like horseradish try that burger.

This place blazed the trail locally for restaurants like Five Guys. Burgers as bulging as you wish, open prep area, walk up an order.... I remember loving that kind of place earlier in my career, but now the proportions are overkill, undoubtedly my changing tastes. Its tastefully rustic, clean, and much larger than the aforementioned places. I essentially like it... More

Was taking a road trip from Montreal to Worcester to visit a friend and we stopped into this restaurant. It had the best tasting Bison burger I've had in a restaurant.
