“Amazing Bacon Burger”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I both got the bacon burger. I like crispy bacon, he doesn't. The kitchen did a fantastic job giving us each perfectly cooked bacon for our tastes! The burger itself was melt in your mouth! So juicy and flavorful! The building is beautifully maintained. The separate dining rooms in all the different original rooms were neat. The original look of the house is still there but updated with a few modern pieces.

“Nice atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I had their grilled cheese sandwich and cole slaw. They were both very good. The atmosphere is nice. It's in an old house and has been renovated nicely. The price was very reasonable.

“Love their sandwiches!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The only thing I don't like is that it's ALWAYS CROWDED!! That's probably because their sandwiches are fabulous! I haven't found a burger there that I don't like and the hand breaded chicken sandwich is the best I've had anywhere.

“Best Burger in Columbus”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Joe Willy's A1 Burger is the best burger in Columbus. Two fresh 1/4 pound Angus patties, A1 sauce, onion straws, mushrooms, and melted provolone are loaded onto a toasted bun. Sure, it can be a messy sandwich, and a bigger bun might make it more manageable. But at Joe Willy's it's not about some big fancy bun or keeping your hands clean. No, Joe Willy's is an unassuming place where you are expected to get down and dirty with a great burger. Locals understand this and flock to the place for Joe Willy's signature burgers and fresh fries and onion rings.

Of course, they have a bigger menu beyond burgers. Salads, veggie burgers, tenderloins, and hot dogs are also appealing. And during the summer it's hard to beat there outdoor patio for enjoying a cold beer from their impressive selection.

Overall though, if your in Columbus looking for an unbeatable burger, do yourself a favor and go to Joe Willy's.
