great new mexican – I like this place a lot. I suggest the chicken casadias. The chicken is very fresh and very good. Its a good place to just go eat when you have a big apetite.
Good Americanized Mexican Fast Food – In direct competition with Moe's, this fast food Americanized Mexican restaurant offers a great selection of burritos, quesadillas, tacos and salads made to order. Their ingredients are prepared fresh daily and their rice and beans contain no lard or animal products.
You choose your meal from a large menu posted on the wall then walk up to the counter to begin your order. If choosing a made to order burrito, you can choose small or large size, rice or no rice, black or red beans, then either chicken or steak or pork or tofu. Afterwards, your order progresses down the counter to the toppings. Here a plethora of fresh toppings parade in front of your eyes and over whelm your faculties as you try and pick which ones to try out. Start with only 3 or 4 toppings, any more than that and the burrito is too fat to roll properly. Add chips, cheese dip and a soda then pay. Check out the menu online at www.willys com. Total meal run ~$10/person
The soda fountain offers a variety of Coke based sodas to choose from, then there are also salsas to choose that add extra flavor to your meal. The table seating is arranged with a group of 6 person high tables and bar stools in the center, then a group of low booths and tables around the outer walls. The tables are keenly watched over by the staff and always kept orderly, clean and presentable. You are responsible for clearing your own table after you eat and disposing of your trash in the silver aluminum trash bins located in the corners. Do not throw away the red baskets your meal was served in; the restaurant reuses these.
There is a small bar counter top located in the back of the restaurant where the college kids hang out. Check out this area if you are looking to mingle with the locals at a friendly watering hole.
What I like best about this restaurant is the made to order meals prepared fresh while you watch. The restaurant is a favorite for the surrounding local community and is often very busy. But service is speedy so even if there is a line it moved fast. Families love to come here, as well as, couples on dates, and college kids. I bring my 83 yr old father and we sit and watch the flow of people milling about.
Yes I would recommend this restaurant to families or couples alike for a fun time out enjoying fast and tasty American-Mexican burritos.
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, tese 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.
