Just tried Willie Mae’s for the first time and I’m hooked!! Their brisket has a wonderful flavor and the pork barbecue was great too! Haven’t had barbecue this good in a long time! Very friendly service as well.

Good food but you never know if they will be open or not. The brisket is very good. Not much on the menu.

Absolutely the best chicken plate I've had ever. The beans and slaw were better than delicious ..seasoned just right. The staff is friendly and patient. Next time the brisket. Can't wait.

Like others said the hours are spotty. It says 12-4 but that should have an asterisk. They sometimes will close for weeks or months so it's best to call. But enough if that. If you get here while they're open you won't be sorry. The...More
