Ribs were not ready at opening hour. Sides were terrible! Straight out of the supermarket prepared foods section, or worse, canned or boxed. Pork sandwiches okay at best.

Could have been better. Not like you get in the south. Needed more smoke flavor. Only the owner working and was slow when 3 cars stop at once. I was hoping for more and had the brisket. Was tender but not much flavor. No shade need to sit in your car or on one of two picnic tables out in... More

We were driving from Burlington VT to Troy NY and in the middle of no where, along a two lane road surrounded by farms there was a BBQ truck! We turned around to go back as we could not believe what we just saw. It was an odd time of day, late afternoon, for a proper meal, but we managed... More

Brought the family here for the first time. Food really took some time to prepare. It's a one man chef; plus outdoor dining experience. The bugs and bees can be really annoying especially for children who have not yet mastered the hand wave while eating.

While driving along Rt 22 to get into NY, where there is mainly rolling hills and farmland, imagine our surprise to see a BBQ food truck along the side of the road! Of course once it registered what we just passed we turned around and doubled back. It was a weird time of day to get a "real" meal so... More

Food was great! Benson bomber was pulled pork and homemade coleslaw on a grilled roll. Onion rings were incredible beer battered! Yummy! Views were great. Only suggestion would be an umbrella for shade at the picnic table. It was hot in the sun. Only open Thursday through Sunday 12-8. Worth the stop!!

Living in New York we have the benefit of enjoying many different BBQ restaurants...but traveling south on Rt22A yesterday we stopped by Willies BBQ. Both my wife and I agree that the Big Apple has nothing on Willies...his BBQ ribs and chicken are the bomb! Simply, the best we ever tasted anywhere! My next phone call is to Willie to... More

Willie T has a great set up! His pulled pork and ribs are AMAZING! He sells them in sizes ranging from individual to large group portions. He will do catering as well. There are picnic tables available, with a great view of his family farm, and the rolling Vermont hills. If you are traveling 22a, plan on stopping!
