Great place to stop solo or with the kids for a great burger and fries and shake. This is made to order food with high quality ingredients

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.

This place became our staple. Juicy grass fed beef burgers. And they have amazing gluten-free buns for us with allergies! Low key place with plastic cups. Stay away if you desire fancy meal but this place is a must if you like good burgers. I would give them all stars if their fries were gluten-free.

Stopped in for lunch. Not exactly fast food but fairly quick. Order at the counter and they give you a number for your table then bring you your food. The burgers were cooked as ordered. There were 3 type of beef, we had the angus which was nice. The burgers were big and filling. A side of onion rings was... More

Great Greasy Burgers and Booze for sure! Wild Willy's has multiple options of gourmet burgers and beef and they also server drinks (beer, wine) so it's a great place to work off a hangover on the weekends! The food is greasy but delicious, so don't expect to go here and find something healthy by any means. Kid-friendly as well.

I love this place. Totally casual with broad wooden tables with wood booths. They offer three different sources of beef ranging from Angus to All Natural Beef. The bison burger is always tender which is impressive for such a lean grind. My go - to burger is the "Wicked Good", smothered with cheddar, swiss, grilled onions and mushrooms. A flavor... More
