Tucked away in a little strip mall area, Armadillo Willy's offers great barbeque, superb value, and many choices. There's something for everyone's tastes. Both of us enjoyed the pulled pork. Though nothing super special, the sides were delicious. Would definitely eat here again.

This is a quirky place (for a Brit at least) fast food in a slow kind of way. The meat is all, allegedly, cooked on a traditional Texan wood BBQ and I must say it tasted pretty good. I tried the Texan Tri which as...More
