Chicken and potato salad both winners. Pulled pork is moist. The brisket and burnt ends are O.K. Smoked sausage is dry.

This is the closest to Texas BBQ I have found up here. I always order the three meat platter, with ribs, fatty brisket (from the point) and more ribs! The ribs are always cooked perfectly, requiring only a slight tug to free the meat cleanly from the bone! ("Falling off the bone" is over-done.) Easily my favorite BBQ joint in... More

Great barbecue! This restaurant is right around the corner from our Chantilly office. Love the sides and the burnt ends! So thankful that they expanded!

Their brisket is so tender and full of flavor. Their coleslaw is pretty delicious as well! However, their KC burnt ends are pathetic. Dear Willard's, please go to Overland Park, KS or Kansas City, MO and eat burn ends there, you will see what I am talking about. Specifically smoke Stack or Kansas City Joe's - both establishments do it... More

First of all, I did like the black eye corn! The collards were hard and chewy, and the beef brisket tasted more like stew meat. I have had a few dinners here, and while it's not what I'm used to , the quality is usually better than my last visit. Perhaps they ran out of smoked meat and stewed mine... More

Was in town for a trade show at the Dulles Expo Center. Was told by locals that we had to go to Willards to get a bite to eat. We loved the funky honky tonk décor and the food was great. Had the bbq beef brisket sandwich with 2 sides. I chose the bbq beans & mash potatoes/gravy. Everything tasted... More

If you haven't had Willards yet you are missing out. They offer exceptional BBQ at a great price with a pretty diverse menu. I had their Texas Brisket platter and everything was freakishly good.

Although there is lots of dining space, we prefer take out from Willards. It is simply worth the trip (for us about 10 miles round trip). The NC Pulled Pork is the best anywhere outside of NC! I like the chicken, either Jerk or BBQ, and the sides are great, especially the pot salad and green beans. The cornbread could... More

I live in northern va and not to far from my house. I've been coming here for years. North Carolina pulled pork is def my favorite and green beans and potato salad a must! They also have expanded which is wonderful.

Stopped by for a late lunch. The meats were prepared perfectly with a nice smoke ring. Beans were good jerk chicken was excellent and the brisket was enjoyable. Great spot to grab a quick casual bite to eat. Prices were fair, tea was sweet, place was clean. When I am back in the area we will return.

Thank Ralph P
