Senior citizen talking to other seniors: This,like all Willies locations, is very reliable and consistent with high quality food, not only the meats but the sides. And important to us, they have smaller portions of almost everything, and they are just right for seniors. Prices...More

This is the best BBQ spot on the Peninsula. I go for the chicken and the ribs, but on my last trip, I tried the Au Gratin Potatoes and was surprised to find that they were fantastic. Don't miss them.

What you expect you get with great flavors and quantity. Good BBQ with ample portions and freshly cooked. If there is anything more then maybe the location is difficult to find a parking space. That is probably the greatest compliment!

lunch on occasion - not a favorite. if you hit it the right time the meat is moist but usually not. They have for sure been slipping. Other than dinner when the food is better, lunch is a fast place to go.
