Went there with 4 teenage boys last night. We all had burgers, and the boys had shakes as well. We shared a large order of onion rings and a large fries. The sides were a bit skimpy for 5 but fine. A few comments: 1) The burgers were very good. We got the basic Angus ones, and everyone's was cooked... More

I usually order the Bison burger Willy style. That is a juicy and crazy flavorful Bison patty cooked to perfection with the classic accompaniment! Lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup,mayo, and mustard. It is incredible! really good fresh cut fries! You can get a shake or even better, a beer! This is not 5 guys! this place takes there food seriously and... More

The burgers are still very good, although mine was overcooked and not medium as I ordered, but the fries are nowhere near as good as they used to be. Soggy and undercooked, as if they were in a rush to serve them.

They have good burgers here, with lots of different ways to have them. We were a bit disappointed by the fries. The onion rings did not disappoint. Would return when in the area.

My son and I stopped to have a Burger and fries at Wild Willies.The quality was very good and service was also very good. The only disappointment was the 'cleanliness' of the tables we sat at. I feel they could see that the tables are checked and cleaned after customers leave.I told the waiter/cashier and he did take care of... More

Willy's is our go-to place for good burgers and fries. It is not fast food, exactly. You order at the counter, are given a number and the food is brought to your table. Willy's serves three types of burger: certified Angus, all natural and bison. All burgers appear to be handmade and not frozen. They also offer chicken and steak... More

Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Onion rings were fantastic, but burger wasn't very good. Went bison instead of a regular burger. Was too tough. Will likely go back, simply because it's convenient, and relatively quick.

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!
