I come by here every time I'm going to the Udvar-Hazy Space center, since it's just down the highway. I always get the platter combo and the beef brisket. This is my wife's new favorite bbq spot in the area, and it's good to know good Texas-style pit bbq is only a short drive away.

We tried this place out for the first time today. The staff are kind of rude, if they speak to you at all. You get large portions of food, but everything is just ok. The sauces are bland, as well as the sides. The cornbread is cold and dry. Even their tea tastes like lemonade, which leads me to believe... More

Not sure how folks ranked the food here so highly. It was not even a decent impersonation of good BBQ. The brisket tasted as though washed in a sink first. The ribs were passionless. The beans had too much molases in them and i did not finish them. The dirty rice was like a dirty joke.

Genuine Texas barbecue in offerings and flavor. The collards were excellent and the service as quick as any fast food drive through. Get there early as the number of patrons grows quickly after 1100.

Just left Willards BBQ and it was sooo good as usual. Had lunch with my kid and we got the open face brisket with sides and boy was it fantastic. They have so many meals to choose from trust me they're all good all the time! Service is fast and easy just like I want and prices are very affordable.

This bbq joint was fabulous. I don't think anyone who knows bbq could say this is a letdown. Fantastic pork from top to bottom. Definitely a popular spot and we found out why for sure. Two thumbs up.

Well worth the long wait, best restaurant around the expo center.. We have never had anything that was average, everything is always tasty and a hit with guests. Great selection, I wish they would add French fries to their menu. We will be back!

I am here from the West Coast for the LEGO convention at the expo center. When I asked the hotel for recommendation for Bbq they all said go to Willards!! The food was great. Pulled pork sandwich, the meat was tender, juicy and not greasy at all. I like that they give you a huge variety is sauces to put... More
