“Nothing Special”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

I appreciated that Green Chilly Willy's offered a healthier burger option, the very lean buffalo burger, but it have no flavor. It was a very plain sandwich, nothing special about it. I got a side of beans and they were just regular pinto beans, nothing special about them either. A friend of mine ordered the chicken fried pecan pie and it looked very interesting, but he wasn't crazy about it. I was disappointed with my experience at this restaurant, not to mention that it's not in a very good location. It's a little tricky to get to when you are coming from Amarillo.

“Good, but . . .”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We went to Green Chile Willy's several times and then took our out-of-town company thinking they would enjoy it, too. Unfortunately that time they had gristle-filled buffalo burgers, so it was disappointing all around, and we haven't been brave enough to return. We probably will one day, but not yet. It has a cute atmosphere and good service, though.

“SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOD!!!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Being a fan of having Hatch Green Chiles on ANYTHING, we decided to give this place a try after reading the reviews on TA and the menu online. It is a small place on the side of the road and is easily missed, but if you pass it by you are missing out on some great food. We both ordered Green Chile cheese burgers, which come with a whole grilled hatch chile pepper inside. It was delicious and the chile was not crazy hot. You got the flavor of the pepper with only a tiny bit of heat. The french fries accompanying the burger were hand cut, shoestring size, and very crispy. We decided to save part of our burgers and fries for later so we could have room for the deep fried pecan pie. I am not a fan of pecans at ALL, but decided to ignore that for a chance at something new. This treat was TASTY! It came with ice cream drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauce and was amazing. It may not be the healthiest thing, but it's not like we were eating it every meal and everyday.

“Great green chili cheese burgers”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Burgers, CFS, Fries...all good. Good staff too. A little out of town but worth the drive. Closed sundays and mondays.

“In Amarillo you must find it”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The other reviews hit it spot on. My wife had a steak - excellent. I did the chicken fried steak with the green chile sauce - again excellent. But the latter is NOT health food. Hard to find - my gps had me turn & enter from the side & you cannot see a sign (if there is one.) Not gourmet, but great home-style Texas cooking.
