Willy's Mexicana Grill

Mom and I took the baby to Willy’s Mexicana Grill for lunch after his pediatrician appointment. We tried the Merchant’s Walk location by Trader Joe’s in Pine Straw Place.

What did you order? How was your food?

We ordered Cilantro-Garlic Steak Burritos and Char-grilled Chicken Burritos. Burritos come with rice, choice of pinto or black beans, salsa, cheese and one of the following items: sour cream, roasted red peppers, corn salsa or grilled green peppers & onions. I enjoy picking out which ingredients I want for my burrito.

The burritos are HUGE, and delicious! I love their hot sauce which is provided in a big squeeze bottle at all of their tables. The prep seemed really fresh. You also get tortilla chips and salsa, and there is a sauce bar as well. They had a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine – always a fun beverage option. I got Raspberry Coke.

Describe your impressions of the service. Was anything exceptionally good (or bad) about the quality of service you received?

Very friendly service. Oh my goodness, I forgot the cookies. The chocolate chip cookies are to die for. Cheap, too.

What do you think of the décor and atmosphere?

The décor is very casual and modern. It goes perfectly with their laidback food.

Do you consider this a good value for the money you spent? If no, why not?

Willy’s is definitely a good deal – you get a ginormous burrito, and chips, too.

This restaurant is best for...

Fun, filling Mexican food and burritos as big as your head. Great family restaurant!

“Willy Bitter created Willy’s after visiting San Francisco and encountering the mission-style burrito. He loved the flavors and knew he had to bring this burrito back to share with the Atlanta area. With a passion for making great Mexican food, Willy and his team opened the very first Willy's restaurant in 1995, and the company has since grown to include more than 20 locations in the metro Atlanta area, one in Athens, Ga., and one in Gainesville, Fla. You can read more about the Willy's story here.

“Willy's makes salsa and guacamole fresh every day. Willy's menu includes signature burritos, quesadillas and tacos featuring ingredients such as marinated adobe and sinaloa chicken, cilantro-garlic steak, sinaloa tofu, veggies and all the fixings. Salads and nachos with grilled chicken or steak are also offered, and Willy's signature margarita is available at select locations.”
