Juicy Deliciousness cooked to perfection

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... read more

I loved the fact that you could start with one of their burgers and improvise. I added bacon and an egg and upgraded the meat on mine. It was juicy and delicious. A measure of a great burger for me is when you pick it up and it is juicy and drips all over the plate and this does that.... More

We were in Watertown visiting family and went out to Wild Willy's for dinner. I ordered the Conestoga with Pineland Farms All Natural Beef. Delicious! The fries were delicious and my favorite was the homemade root beer. It was so good. I wasn't really in the mood for a burger that night, but I was so pleasantly surprised with my... More

Great burgers, with a variety of interesting toppings - our favorites are the BBQ-bacon, the blue cheese, and the classic cheddar cheese. Onion rings and fries are crisp and hot. And the real ice-cream shakes are wonderful.

... this is the place! I wasn't interested in any other meat offering, but had a premium (grass fed) burger, fries and a side salad. The prices were good and quality almost excellent. If the bun were better able to stand up to the juicy burger, and its contents (sautéed onions and mushrooms, plus melted cheese), I would have added... More

I had not been here in a long time. I had the Bandito -- sautéed onions and cheddar cheese -- on a certified Angus beef patty, cooked medium. This was a delicious juicy burger! I did not even put ketchup on this burger. The onions were very tasty. I would certainly recommend Wild Willy's for anyone looking for an excellent... More

Chicken sandwich tough like shoe leather. Meal was very disappointing. I did not know if it was overlooked or undercooked. Unchewable

Reviewing Wild Willy's is a simple and easy affair. Their classic, Willy burger is the best-tasting, most consistent burger in town. The patty is juicy and hearty, and the toppings are fresh and crunchy, including lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, cheese, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. When all of these ingredients come together, the burst of flavor is almost overwhelming. Mediocre burgers,... More
