Stopped by on my way to do inventory in SAT. Quite a long line at lunch time to place order. The place was packed. I ordered the Philly Willie. It was pretty good, the meat was tasty but way to much bread compared to the amount of meat. My fellow employee had chicken fried steak that he thought was probably... More

So this place is basically just elevated fast food. Kind of elevated. I got steak fingers, which isn't on the menu, but it's just cut up chicken fried steak before frying. Yummy though, with hot, seasoned fries. OK, really bad for the diet. Note that this restaurant is very loud over the lunchtime period.

I visited Willie's with a friend of mine. Great prices, good drinks, and a nice outdoor area to sit and talk. They have a sandbox for kids and are family friendly. I had the cheddar and hickory burger. Fries were good but my burger was a bit burned. All in all a decent place to get a bite to eat... More

Why in the world we returned, I do not know. The chicken fried steak is all batter and the mashed potatoes are instant! Why??? The blackened salmon is great, but the rice and mushy vegetable that came with it are not acceptable for the $14.95 price. Seriously. Never returning.

My oldest daughter and her daughter decided to take me out to dinner on Saturday after relocating to San Antonio, TX and she had mentioned that we had visited this place before on a prior visit but I didn't remember. However, I remember and it is a very laid back place and the food is sort of fast food but... More

We ordered a hamburger and stead dinners for takeout. The food was excellent. The steak came with a salad, which was not included. When asked for extra salt (there was a .0001 oz packet included with the disposable cutlery package), we received a couple of more cutlery packages. Would have been helpful to have regular salt and pepper packages for... More

We really enjoy eating here, from the large salad portions with choices of Salmon, grilled or fried chicken tenders to their huge portion of Chicken Fried Chicken with the best mashed potatoes! If I ordered salad and my husband the Chicken Fried Chicken, I was always "stealing" some of his mashed potatoes, and the portions are huge, for most people... More

My husband, BIL and myself met halfway to conclude some business paperwork. Willies was picked because my BIL Loves the Tortilla soup. I had the blackened chicken Cesar salad..,..the chicken was tender, cooked to perfection and flavorful , my husbands Baby Back Ribs were "pretty good .....meaty and cooked well".

We have been here before and I think we enjoyed it, but tonight my food was lukewarm and shrimp was overcooked! My husband had fish tacos and they were bland! Fries were oily and limp! Noise level made it impossible to visit! Server was fantastic!
