Finally, a place that knows how to cook ribs to perfection. I always felt the best ribs came from a black man parked alongsode the road with a portable smoker. Not anymore

The go-to place for BBQ and a wide selection of foods (turkey, chicken, beef, variety of sides, etc.).

The brisket was great, the barbecue is excellent. We have gone there for lunch, and ordered trays of each for a family buffet. They had basic chafing dishes we could buy for a reasonable rate. It's quite casual. They know what they are doing...

I love good bbq, but have generally been disappointed in all I found in the No Virginia area. Even the place which recently has been called the best in the DC area. My son-in-law told me about Willard's. It's close this his house but a long way from mine. Thus I had not tried it until yesterday. Wow, what a... More

This is a beloved place for my husband and sons. They love the BBQ, which has some gluten free options. Sides are tasty. Service is fast. A no nonsense place with good eats.

I usually stop by this place for lunch. This is 3.5 star rating from me, but ti give fare I put 4 star. . Pork sandwich is good, beef brisket is good too, doesn't have much smokey taste thou. Beans lately aren't good lately, but may be it's just me. Feels like they want you to eat more side dishes... More

This is seems rather unassuming, but you WILL be surprised at how juicy and delicious their BBQ is! The portion size could be a bit more, but if you want tasty, BBQ the way it was meant to be, but all means Willard's IS for you!

My first experience with Willards was takeout during a proposal. Wow! The food was fantastic. I know there are a lot of barbecue snobs but this definitely one of the best in the area. Not only is the barbecue good but the sides are equally great. It's always crowded which is the first sign of success. I have used them... More

I picked up a family dinner to bring home. It was the brisket with some sides. Absolutely delicious and affordable for the quality of the food.

Today was my first visit to Willard's BBQ! I used TripAdvisor to look for a restaurant that was supposed to buy. Since I don't eat barbecue often and I love grilled and smoked food I decided to give it a try. The food is definitely better than a chain restaurant. The rice and gravy was best thing I had on...
