Great sandwiches & gumbo. Terrific onion rings & lots of Ice cold beer choices. Noisy, but fun. Not a good place for very young kids, but fine for pre-teens & up.

I recommend the chips and queso, their burgers, and their grilled chicked sandwich. Cool environment, great staff, and food is always good. Loved all the different Olympic events on the various TV's, wish I had that kind of setup at my house. I usually eat at the Willie's in Pasadena, TX, but this location was just as good.

We visited here last week, and it was "eh" I got the chicken fried chicken, my husband the ribs and my child the chicken tenders. While the fries were good, everything else was "eh." I honestly don't know what adjectives to use. I guess i was expecting lots of flavor and freshness and both were lacking. While the server was... More

One of my favorite restaurants in New Braunfels and convenient location. Good drink/beer selection and the food is always good also. Wait staff is very attentive. Lots of TVs and even a sand box outside the patio.

We all had a great meal. The burgers were wonderful and my son loved the buffalo chicken strips. The Chicken Fried steak was also delicious. Will have to return to Willie's in our area soon.

Had been there last night. I got really good and fresh seafood there. The service and the location are great. There is nothing more to say about it. Normally they would earn 5 stars but they didn't clean up the tables on the nice patio. Nearly every table was not useable. Therefore 4 stars were given.

It was a little pricey for what I received - the El Jefe margarita is $9 and was weak, and tasted watered down. The grilled shrimp tacos were overcooked (so the shrimp was rubbery). But the queso and salsa were really good. Our server was excellent, accommodating, and delightful. One curious thing, though, is the system they have in place:... More

I've been here many times with friends from work. The food is always good, and the service is too! I've been after work and enjoyed a frozen beverage! They're pretty stinking good!
