Willie’s is one of my favorite places for large groups where it is easy to do separate checks and everyone can get whatever they want from a variety of options.  It is a relaxing fun place. Willie’s is very family friendly and has a large patio space perfect for sunny days.  Their menu is huge and has everything anyone could want. I’m kind of addicted to their fried pickles.  They are always a crowd pleaser. There are a ton of huge salads on their menu and my favorites are the Asian Chopped Salad and the Mediterranean Salad.  The Asian salad has greens, chicken, cashews, oranges and huge wantons in a tangy ginger dressing.  The Mediterranean salad has greens, bell peppers, cranberries, pears, walnuts, and Gorgonzola cheese.  You can add chicken to that to make it very filling.  During craw-fish season, this is is always a great place for boiled craw-fish and a cold beer.  They have about a half dozen burgers on the menu including a black N Bleu burger, a turkey burger and an awesome hickory cheddar burger.  Willie’s also has a fair number of sandwiches and poboys.  I love the fried shrimp poboy and the fried craw-fish poboy.  The pulled pork sandwich is also a favorite, but only if I’m not getting a pulled pork topped baked potato.  When I’m in the mood for fried or grilled catfish, Willie’s again satisfies.  You want chicken fried steak, chicken fried chicken, ribs, or tacos?  Willie’s has those items too. It is a great place to kick back and drink a beer, margarita or their famous Frozen Jack and Coke.  Yes, they have frozen Jack and Coke and frozen adult lawn chair lemonade.  The kids can get a regular frozen lemonade to go with their grilled cheese, corn dog, or mac n cheese.  Like I said, they have something for everyone at Willie’s and everyone leaves happy.
