Wanted cerviche.. they had a similar item but wasn't listed on menu or online. Had lots of shrimp lus avacado. Fried shrimp and fries average except fries were rubbery tasting. Maybe because weren't hot. Had some different kind of seasoning on also. Walk up to order then sit down. Nice atmosphere for the type of place.

We decided to try Willie's due to the crowd. Very popular. It was not a mistake, wait was only 10 minutes. Boy, I am glad we did, service was excellent and the burger was excellent. MY wife had the pulled pork sandwich. Great food. Also a good location to watch games.

Interesting establishment with lots of choices to choose from. They include great sandwiches, ribs, chicken and seafood. Some of them have a cajun twist to them. Serves beer and wine.
