Stopped for lunch and no doubt we will be back, food was great quality and the server was wonderful. Guacamole tasted freshly made. Next time I want to try the enchiladas. Support this local business!

Good food - but not your typical Mexican food. Burrito had “wet” rice in it (tossed in a sauce). Fajita platter had items all mixed together. It’s a small seating area and we did not like the strong smell of the cleaning fluid being sprayed...on the tables near us while we were eating.More

Simply the BEST Mexican around!! Jose and Jackie catered my daughter’s shower and the Taco Bar they prepared was the hit of the party. Freshly made and over the top delicious were the comments from our guests. The guacamole and salsa... outstanding! And TACOS! Both...hard and soft shells. Chili Willies will always be our go-to Mex/Southwest restaurant.More

Went Thursday for lunch. Restaurant was empty but our server was so nice and attentive that I am sure she would have been that way anyway (if she was not overwhelmed). Food was very good and portions were large. I got the barbeque ribs and...fries - clearly not a Mexican dish per se but the BBQ sauce was homemade and excellent - and the fries were surprising excellent also.More

Chili Willies is a cute little place. The tables seemed filled with several return customers. I can see why! The waiters and manager are very friendly and the food was good, with huge portions. I'll return too. The only reason I rated it average is...that while well done, it was standard Mexican fare, which is the reason I went there.More

Chili Willies is our favorite TexMex place in North Jersey. It’s a small, homey, family run restaurant where the food is fresh and tasty and the portions are huge. Tonight we had the chicken enchilada platter and the Harvest Moon vegetable burrito: Excellent as always,...with the freshest tortillas. This is just the most pleasant place. Take out is available too.More

Chili Willies is a family owned business with creative, authentic dishes. I have been going there for years and the food is always delicious, fresh, tasty and unique. Typically the food isn't spicy so if you don't like highly spiced food, you will find plenty...to chose from. Their flan is one of the best in the area. The owners make all their clients feel welcome. It is a family favorite; we even had a wedding rehearsal dinner there.More

Love Chili Willies! You are welcomed by the wooden carving of a man with a sombrero standing outside the restaurant. The restaurant itself is a small, cozy, vibrantly decorated room with homemade tortilla chips waiting for you as well as salsa. The menu has so...much to chose from and there are also specials. Jackie, the owner, is always there to interact with you with a huge smile and your order, as well as answer any questions or suggestions you may need. The rest of the wait staff is always friendly and helpful. The food is fantastic as well as homemade desserts. Go hungry because the portions are big! BYOB if that’s your thing. They also have a takeout window too! 😃More

The ribs really do fall off the bone and they are delicious!!! They give you a bowl of yummy authentic tortilla chips and salsa while you wait for your food. Staff is nice and when it comes to barbeque- they definitely know what their doing!!!...The food is great!! Family friendly but very very small. Most people get take out for this reason. But the food is YUMMO!!!!!!More

This is a great place to get lots of food and great service. A super small byob, Chili Willies never disappoints. Definitely wear and tear on this restaurant but that gives it it’s true charm. Our group of five was seated right away on a...Friday night. Plenty of staff and plenty of food! Beef Tacos and chicken and cheese enchiladas are always a great choice. Enjoy!More

Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and the absolutely delightful staff. Each member of our family loved the dish they picked - I had the shrimp tacos & they totally rocked. The shrimp was cooked perfectly and fresh guacamole and fresh cilantro were just the right touches...to tickle the taste buds. If you're looking for a reasonably priced night out with the family, look no further!More

Bring your own Tequila for the margarita's they serve. They do not have a liquor license so they serve only virgin margaritas. I did like the salsa which was chunky and packed with onions. The chips seemed to be homemade and they were hot and...crispy. The décor is colorful as you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. There is street parking and a public parking area a few blocks away. They offer take-out but I ate in. The steak Mariachi ($20.95) is broiled not grilled and comes with sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, rice and beans but delicious. You can substitute French fries for the rice and beans. They seem to have a continuous stream of Mexican music playing. Be careful with the hours which are 11-3:30 pm, an hour and a half break and reopen from 4:30-10 Tuesday - Saturday. They are closed on Monday.More
