The best patio spot in Atlanta – The location and patio is the difference maker here. Positioned right next to the east entrance to Piedmont park, it's probably the best spot in town to people (and dog) watch. Hang out long enough, and you might just spot the likes of the Midtown Pig, the dude with like 12 pit bulls, or the Ambassador of Mirth himself - Baton Bob.
Obviously if you're looking for authentic Mexican this isn't your place, but for California style burritos and such, I consider the food at Willy's a step up from Moe's and Chipotle without stepping up in price.
Great Burrito and Location – The patio is the draw for this location. It's on Piedmont Park and is full of activity on weekends. It's a burrito place--not fancy and not stuffy. It's a great value and you can get healthy food if you want as well. Very very casual. They don't have liquor, just beer and wine. When it first opened it was predominantly a gay clinential, but now is more mixed. It's midtown so expect a live and let live crowd.
Great Alternative to Moe's – Fresh Ingredients, the meat selections are tasty for burritos and taco salads. Not as rambunctious as Moe?s. Nice place for an office sponsored lunch.
Best Burritos! – Gigantic Burrito!! If you are hungry, like mexican food and want to be FULL , this is the perfect place! Great light hearted atmosphere with many different ingredients to choose from. Authentic and Fresh! Come with friends and family, you won't go wrong!
Yummy – Way better than lots of sit down Mexican restaurants and blows Moe's out of the water. Fresher, nicer and better value. Try it and you wont be disappointed.
Local burrito chain mixes college-joint atmosphere and grown-up flavors. – In Short
Functional and fast, this local burrito chain features a spiffed-up version of the mighty handheld meal. Thanks to some good basic flavors (cilantro-garlic steak, chipotle barbecue pork) and a generous hand with garnishes, these burritos are too heavy on beans-and-rice. The "Super" comes with lettuce, cheese, guacamole, salsa and sour cream. Vegetarian options are also available, as are quesadillas and tacos. Stick with the burritos, especially the celebrated Green Mole Chicken.
Good but no Moe's – Willy's wins with their Piedmont Park location. The chicken and most toppings are better at Moe's but Willy's is a good substitute if it is what's close. Stay away from the Nachos...they never give you enough cheese.
Willys – Excellent food, great serive. Get in and out in less than 5 minutes!
way overrated – I was disappointed in the food......my burrito came with the primary ingredient being rice....and lots of it.....never associated burritos with rice in the first place....the overwhelming taste was bland. Have not been back.
You'll Willy want to go back! – Yummy Yummy food! We drive an hour to eat at Willy's every weekend! Cheap food, fresh and quick.
