Willickers offers a selection of good food that is well prepared and served in generous portions. The atmosphere is different - sort of dated, traditional old style bar. Service is friendly and very prompt. The bar is usually crowded and the dining area usually quite empty. They offer an area for bike parking which attracts some of the clientele. This... More

Outdoor seating is very basic with bar right at your fingertips. Food is very good. You can get a large variety of dishes. The men's bathroom smelled like sewage. When I told the bartender, she didn't seem to care one bit. The restaurant could do without her. Overall a good spot for a bite and a beer.

It was a little cool on a Sunday afternoon, not exactly great biking weather, but we had been meaning to check it out. We had lunch at the bar. Dining rooms were basically empty and there were a few people playing pool. I had a draft, she had a bottle, I had the Chicken Chimmi Changa, she had a turkey... More

This place is basically just an old bar, and tries to serve Mexican..the atmosphere is very dated and gives you a feeling that you should not have come for dinner.

Mondays will never be the same again- 50 cent tacos at Willikers, and a couple of draft beers- what an inexpensive and delicious way to enjoy a night out- great place, excellent staff!

The food was ok. The service was pretty good. If u go at night with old people, people at the bar will make fun of the elderly person or group. The price u pay is not worth it. You can go to Dunkin Donuts and get a better atmosphere and better food.

You have to know what to expect when you go into this place. This place is a throw back to the 1970s old school bar rooms. Drinks are cheap and they have pretty good tex mex (better than even most tex mex restaurants in the area). Harleys lined up outside on nice summer nights.. and the people and place itself... More
