Slow cooked BBQ served extremely fast! Food tastes great! Parking is limited during weekday lunch hours.

I grew up in Alabama where real barbecue is slow cooked over wood. This is cooked over a gas cooker at best or microwave. I took my two boys and we ordered ribs and the pulled pork. The ribs I ordered were smothered in sauce which was sickeningly sweet and the meat had no flavor or smoke. The pulled pork... More

BBQ is King at Willard's! Don't come here unless you are hungry, hungry, hungry -- and you love BBQ! Portions are generous, prices are reasonable, and the BBQ, both pork and beef, is really tasty! My only suggestion is that you schedule an hour or so just to recover from what is always a heavy, heavy feast! Highly recommended for... More

I wanted to try a non-chain place for lunch when I was in the area for business and people recommended Willards BBQ. I have had some good BBQ in my life, so this was not bad, but it was not amazing. It also was not cheap, but it was not expensive. I got a sandwich and two sides for $9... More

I went there for lunch and it has undoubtedly got to be the worse barbecue I've ever eaten. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich topped with cole slaw along with baked beans and potato salad and nothing was good. I ended up tossing it.

Not even close to Texas BBQ. Locals are very proud of this place but I found it average at best. Now keep in mind I have visited some of the top rated BBQ joints in Texas

Chicken and potato salad both winners. Pulled pork is moist. The brisket and burnt ends are O.K. Smoked sausage is dry.

This is the closest to Texas BBQ I have found up here. I always order the three meat platter, with ribs, fatty brisket (from the point) and more ribs! The ribs are always cooked perfectly, requiring only a slight tug to free the meat cleanly from the bone! ("Falling off the bone" is over-done.) Easily my favorite BBQ joint in... More

Great barbecue! This restaurant is right around the corner from our Chantilly office. Love the sides and the burnt ends! So thankful that they expanded!

Their brisket is so tender and full of flavor. Their coleslaw is pretty delicious as well! However, their KC burnt ends are pathetic. Dear Willard's, please go to Overland Park, KS or Kansas City, MO and eat burn ends there, you will see what I am talking about. Specifically smoke Stack or Kansas City Joe's - both establishments do it... More
