Restaurant details
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We knew we wanted to stop at Willie's diner when we were traveling through LA! We were so excited and had such high expectations! We pulled up with our 4 children and there was NO WAIT! We were seated right away and then we sat. And sat. And sat. When we were finally asked what we wanted we ordered an appetizer and our main meal. And we waited. And waited. And waited. Our appetizer never came and the waitress graciously took it off our bill. The food came after about 40 minutes of waiting. The waitress who brought it out to us was snacking on a fry basket in between delivering food out to the tables, she would simply wipe her hands on her apron after sticking them in her mouth! My kids did not like the food at all. The burger was terrible. My husband got Jambalaya. He said, "It tastes like it has been heated up too many times." I got the gumbo. It was terrible. Not just terrible, like 6 hours later I got intense stomach cramps and had severe food poisoning! No one else got sick and it passed so quickly that I knew it was from the gumbo! I do NOT recommend this restaurant at all!!!

Only stays open till 8pm. We stopped in here about 30 minutes before closing. The hostesses were a little rude. They argued about when they were going to stop taking customers. We were a little concerned it was going to be bad. The food is American with a few Cajun items. They also feature gator and frog legs. Service was a little slow as they were very busy. They ran out of a few items we had ordered, but they offered us a substitution. The food quality was good. The ham po' boy was very good. The prices seemed a little high. Most hovered above $10. Bill was close to $100 for five people plus tip. Might head back again one day if we're are ever in this area again. Worth a look.
