Delicious local food with great service, Willie's is that perfect hole in the wall restaurant. We each ordered the two piece catfish with fries and sweet tea. There wasn't much seating available so we got ours to go. When we got back we opened our food and to our surprise they gave each of us 5 pieces of catfish with... More

I got the little fish sandwich and the slaw. Couldn't finish either one. One order is enough for two. Would be 5 stars but the fish is just a little too salty for me. It's a perfect day in Dalton so eating outside was nice. I'll try a burger next time.

Willies doesn't disappoint whether BBQ, catfish or subs!!! More food than one person can eat!! May seem over priced on first visit, but you will find you get your money's worth and leftovers or can serve 2. You'll be back!

Hamburgers and fish sandwiches are their specialities. The little fish sandwich was only its name. It was not small at all. Delicious. The fillets were bigger than the bun; the same with the burgers. Fries came in one size, extra large. Great place to eat and enjoy fried food.

Fish is way to greasy, fries are greasy burgers taste like McDonald's hamburger meat or fake meat, so I thought I would give them another chance and try the BBQ pork sandwich and what do you know it was 95% FAT!!!! And not even edible in my opinion. So I would highly recommend you try it for yourself and see... More

While we enjoyed our food today and we ate it on one of the three outdoor tables, you need to know this is really a take out shack. Very good burgers and fish sandwiches, and if you get fries, two people can easily eat on one order!

Willie's has excellent fish, BBQ, and almost any sandwich that you can dream of. Very large portions, great prices, and a friendly staff! I just wish they were open later!

I tried Willies because of the convenience of being around my previous job and I was pleasantly surprised! The food isn't outrageously expensive, just a little pricey. But, you get SO.MUCH.FOOD! I've had a burger and Ruben. I have no complaints. I've heard around town that they spruced up their menu too.
