Ordered a Polish Boy Combo and wasn't disappointed. Terrific staff, with the owner coming around and chatting to the customers.

Ribs were good, but I almost didn't go in, bldg looked old & abandoned. Took a while for someone to come to the register & no customers. My 1st time there but I was rushed to order, think I was told hey were closing soon. Got a slab to go, but side dishes weren't appealing. I recommend visiting before dark... More

Excited to take our son to a "Man versus Food" stop, after attending his first professional football game, but place was run down and food was disappointing.

I just recently stayed in Cleveland and a friend took me to Hot Sauce Williams BBQ and I really enjoyed the fried chicken. Check this place out if you ever near it.

The food was absolutely amazing, but unfortunately the staff attitude almost completely ruined my enjoyment of it. Ordering process/pick up/waiting line are not very well thought out. More than three patrons waiting at a time causes a bit of a cramped space. And the wait is long, as the employees seem to just be genuinely uninterested. My husband and I... More

Visiting Canton for Football Hall of Fame and Cleveland for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Wanting to try something of local cuisine, and read about Polish Boy sandwich, which is a polish sausage, with French fries, cole slaw and hot sauce on a bun. I know, healthy food. Through trip advisor, decided on Hot Sauce Williams. Arrived and the... More

Very good food! Ask for the Red Sauce on your chicken!! Fried fish is made to order and tastes great.

My first time ever eating here. I saw the restaurant on Man vs Food and couldnt wait to visit. Waa in Clevveland from Florida and had to stop by. It was very quaint and the staff were very friendly. We all had the polish boy and it was delicious. Definitely worth the travel.

Cashier was rude and it took almost and hour for a chicken dinner each time! On top of all that a lot of menu prices have jumped in the last year..so bad service for expensive ok... More

After having my wife attend her appointment, I thought I would kill some time at a place called Lancers which was located in the vicinity of 79th and Carnegie in Cleveland. I use to deliver mail in this area, and use to reside for about a year in the same zip code 44103. I was shocked to find that Lancers... More
