Worst Experience – I usually LOVE willy's, and prefer it over Moe's or Chipotle... never again. I immediately wanted to walk out upon entering (and should have). A foul stench greeted us at the front door and you couldn't ignore it the entire time. It smelled just like garbage and I convinced myself the food was worth staying. Bad idea. I got in line and noticed at LEAST 4 flies (i'm being nice...there were probably more i didn't see) swarming the food and landing all over the chicken and meat. I ignored it- being the optimistic person I am, saying it didn't matter...Although it is very easy for restaurants to set up fly bait/traps to help this problem. With an open buffet line like that, proper solutions should be available.
The straw that broke the camel's back was when the line was getting long, someone from the burrito making line asked the lady cashier to start helping to make it go by faster- after i watched her take money from someone she ran to the line and proceeded to pick up a tortilla with the same hand! i was appalled- no glove, nothing.
The restaurant was a mess, flies everywhere, smelled disgusting. The chicken was full of fat and could barely swallow without wanting to gag on a veiny, fatty piece. I'm so shocked and praying to God that all Willy's havent gone down hill like this. I will never in my life return to this one even though it is so close I could walk from my house. The smell was so disgusting I had to take my food to go. I have already warned all 1,000+ of my facebook friends and wanted people to know- willy's in general is a good place- but AVOID THIS ONE!!!!
Good food and price – I have gone to this place many nights. open late and food taste, price and their own souce are rather good. took me several times to figure out to order and food service is fast. I have nothing to take about Cons yet. spicy chiken quesadillas with rice is pretty good. I have spending more time here than other fast food places now.
Local burrito chain mixes college-joint atmosphere and grown-up flavors. – In Short
Functional and fast, this local burrito chain features a spiffed-up version of the mighty handheld meal. Thanks to some good basic flavors (cilantro-garlic steak, chipotle barbecue pork) and a generous hand with garnishes, tese burritos are too heavy on beans-and-rice. The "Super" comes with lettuce, cheese, guacamole, salsa and sour cream. Vegetarian options are also available, as are quesadillas and tacos. Stick with the burritos, especially the celebrated Green Mole Chicken.
