“everyday bbq”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Willy's is a mini-chain in the area. It is very straightforward, with solid burgers and ribs and counter service. It's not a 75 year old roadhouse, and doesn't have all the latest beers, but if you're in the mood for a pile of meat you'll find a reasonable lunch crowd and a smaller dinner crowd. If you like uncomplicated american food that's not out of a can like Olive Garden, this might be your spot. Also not very expensive. Get the peanut slaw on the side.

“Good "Texas" barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Being from out of town, it's not easy to decide where to eat, especially when your tired from traveling...so a huge thank you to all the reviewers. The restaurant provided a nice diversion from the usual. Order your food, sit down to wait for it to be prepared, pick it up, return to your table and eat. The pulled pork was stellar, smoky and tender. The mild barbeque sauce was a nice compliment. Side dishes were a nice compliment. I look forward to returning and trying the chicken, which looked amazing walking by...

One of the best burgers I have had in a long time and the best sweet potato fries I have ever eaten. Thick and cooked perfectly!

“Tender and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Love the food, the BBQ Sauce.
Service is fast, and you order at one counter, use an electronic alert when you order is ready and pick up at another counter.
