Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a quick cheap burger you are at the wrong place with Willie's! On the other hand if it's over the top great burgers & sandwiches you're looking for you have come to the right place! Now Willie's isn't cheap.... but top quality ingedents arnt cheap. Top quality is all you'll find here, no corners cut ever! The man takes pride in what comes out of this little place everyday! Come hungry or be prepared to half what you order with a friend because the portion sizes are huge. Like I said you truley get what you pay for here.......

“Can't touch this”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Don't eat breakfast! Come hungry and don't plan on eating dinner...unless you save the other half of your huge sub sandwich for later. Once you bite into one of his subs you'll realize this little hole in the wall has got it going on. Don't waste you money or time on fries. But you don't need them when you try the Balboa or the Sinatra. Whatever sauce he uses on that mountain of high quality meat and fresh fixings is perfect. His burgers are top notch too. Willie doesn't compromise on quality and value there either. Bring a friend and split it fo lunch. Price is reasonable at $7-$8...but this is for 2 meals or a treat to your belly:) Trust me! ...you can trust a fat man about food.

“Our lunch was fantastic...will definitely return.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place reminds us why we love 'hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Thank you, Trip Advisor! I had the famous original Cuban and my husband had the mohita steak. Neither one of us could finish it, much as we wanted to...they were that good. The huge portion of fries barely got touched, had a few just to try them. They were good, but not homestyle with skins as previous posts mentioned. The only way to improve the experience would be more tables, but space is limited so that probably won't happen. We ended up eating in the car, messy with such huge, very juicy sandwiches. We did make sure we went after the normal lunch time to avoid the huge crowds, and it was still busy.

“Willie's on Cleveland Hwy... I wish there was a half star option.. One star is too optimistic”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Horrible! Nothing but CISCO pre-frozen mid grade meats. Nothing was edible and nothing is actually made there. If they can't drop it in hot grease or nuke it, you can't get it. Worst food place I've been to in years. Tell ya what~ I won't make that mistake again. I am highly suspicious of the high numbers of 5's here. The place on Cleveland Highway has only been opened for a few weeks and God willing it won't be there much longer; maybe there is a used sporting goods retailer looking for a cheap store front.... and it would be tastier! Horrible!
