We got there at almost closing. We did not know until already ordered. When we realized it they made sure we did not rush. It was all good. They could not have been better employees to each other and to us. The ribs were the...More

I judge a BBQ place by its pulled pork. Willie Brooks BBQ serves up fresh, tender pulled pork and their sweet sauce is delicious. The platter comes with two sides, the sandwich with one. Hubby and I each ordered the pulled pork sandwich. My side...More

Just caught a glimpse of the restaurant as we passed. had to make a U turn and go back. Glad we did. Excellent pulled pork, and sides. We'll make a note whenever we are passing thru at meal time, Willie's will be a stop.

I fought hard with myself deciding to order the 4-rib or half rack platter. Glad I chose the 4 ribs because it was more than enough for lunch and I took home some to snack on. Very meaty. Thanks for leaving off the sauce. Too...More

I am on the KETO diet because I have diabetes, so my choices at a BBQ restaurant are usually limited to meat. I ordered the ribs, and they were tender and tasty, although there were these strange fat things in the ribs that were creeping...More
