“Very good chicken fried steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Being from "back east", I make a habit of remembering where the good chicken fried steak places are at when I travel in Texas. This place has an excellent recipe for the stuff so I go to Willy's for chicken fried when I'm in Amarillo. The chicken fried pecan pie is well worth trying too if you save enough room.

“Excellent”

Best ribeye steak in Amarillo. All 3 chicken fry steaks are awesome. The Buffalo is excellent. Great place to hang out with family and friends.

“Interesting Chicken Fry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Chicken Fried Steak is too small for the price. Menu says "Texas Sized" but it is obviously not. I had the model with the jalapeño cream gravy. I enjoyed it but will go with a regular next time. Our burgers were fairly bland. I will try a steak next time before giving up on the place as a go to destination.

“Loved the Green Chili Sauce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Those who take the time to write their opinion so others have a heads up about the restaurant do so genuinely and TripAdvisor removes those that do not follow the guidelines. Positive or negative, it's their opinion and those of us who rely on TripAdvisor are appreciative.

Hubby and I visited Willy's on a weekday in the late afternoon. Only a few people were in the restaurant so our service was excellent. Hubby had the chicken fried steak with chili sauce and said it was very tasty. Meat was tender, coating wasn't excessive, size was not "Texas Size" as it is at Mel's Country Café, Goodson's Country Café or even Black Eyed Pea but it was enough. Veggies were done right and very good. Salad was crisp but drenched with dressing so that it puddled in the bottom. Not something that either of us enjoys, although some may, it's overkill for us. Maybe they could put it on the side?

I had the Chili Cheese Burger and asked that they use strips instead of salsa with seeds, no pickles, ketchup or mustard. Burger came out perfect and just as ordered. Meat cooked just right, fresh veggies, very tasty. Beans were very good, just the right amount of spice.

Price was reasonable, food was very good, would be comfortable recommending this down home grill to friends.

“Great place to eat. Don't miss it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

And, WOW!!! what a variety on the menu. And if you like Jalepenos and chilis with your food, be sure to tell them. They serve you anyway you want it. I had the Jalepeno Chicken Fried Steak and it was awesome, especially the Jalepeno gravy to top the steak. My wife had the Rib Eye sandwich and you could cut the meat with a fork and it was some of the best rib eye we have ever had.
