Under new ownership. Willies is now ABUELITA'S. The food was fine, very tasty. Service was fine. Checking on seated customers more often would help to achieve a better rating. The service was adequate. Judging for other customer banter, this is a popular local spot. I...More

The onion rings are the best I have ever had, EVER! Hand cut and corn-meal breaded. That's all we had time for, but next time yeah, we'll branch out a bit.

Don't let the outside keep you from stopping. Local place with good food. Menu has some variety. Staff is friendly. Free Wi-Fi. Over all for being near the middle of nowhere.
