After reading the reviews we decided to give it a try, upon arrival they had 9 open tables and had a waiting list. Some people got frustrated and left we stuck it out for about 15 minutes and got sat. Meals are served with a salad which came drenched in dressing to the point of puddling. I had the Chicken friend Chicken green chile style it was very tender and well cooked the green chili sauce was amazing but the serving was extremely small. Allot smaller than a place who raves about feeding you texas sized meals, they feel extremely short. Only thing more disappointing was the size of the chicken fried steak, usually they come as big as the plate in Texas, but not at Willy's there small and not quite filling.
Service was very good, and the food was good but it does not live up to its rating.

The food is yummy, down home cookin'. The green chile sauce is where its at! All of us had chicken fried steak/chicken in one way or another with the sauce. Totally awesome. And for dessert the fried pecan pie...... die! So good. The owner also came to the table, super friendly! Loved this place!

Using green Hatch chili's in their gravy is just a start to what makes this place special. In fact, rather than trying to describe what makes the chicken-fried steak so special, just order the "sampler platter" that features their fabulous chicken-fried steak served 3 ways. And get a side order of their pan-fried corn and Hatch chilis. Phenomenal!

By the name, i thought this was a mexican food place, but far from it- if you even remotely like cracker barrel and 'home' style cooking- you will love this place. Cool decor, fast and friendly service and awesome food- I had a green chili chicken and it as the bomb!! great food! Its a tad hard to find, but just off I-27, on a frontage road- look it up. Few things to note- check the hours of operation (they are closed on Mondays, I think) and dont be suprised if the place is packed with locals when you get there!
