Had the shrimp tacos, which had tasty fried shrimp and decent veggies on them. Good value as well. Would recommend for a lunch. Cleanliness was good as well.

Stopped in for a quick dinner and drink. Had the Friday special, which was Brisket Tacos, which were excellent, and we will go back for them.

We stopped in our last night in town and wasn't disappointed. The burgers were great! I'd highly recommend this to anyone I knew going to Rochester. The environment was fun and our server was hilarious. We will definitely come back.

We live in the area and think that Willy’s has the best burgers anywhere around. The beef is just outstanding. And the homemade chips are the best....fresh cooked and hot. Service is OK… Nothing special. The atmosphere is really fun with all of the car...More
