So excited to taste California Bar B Que so we chose Armadillo Willy's. While the chicken is tender, it is not well seasoned, and the ribs are too fatty to enjoy. Brisket was OK. Decided that when. On California, Bar Que should not be the...More

Food in ample portions, with fries, etc, but somehow did not seem complete to me. My Pulled Pork BBQ was ok, not great, but this is not a place I would go back to for the $15 price tag. Seemed a little overpriced to me.

This is our family go to place for a burger or Texas BBQ ribs. Their Flat Iron Burgers are our favorites. Simple but great. Love their cajun fries with a bit Jalapeño BBQ sauce. Prices are great too.

I absolutely love their texas pork ribs! Simply Delicious! Their sides are amazing too - corn cilantro salad and chicken avacado soup are amazing!

It's hard to judge a BBQ place after only 1 visit, but I found this place to be okay. I order the special with brisquit and found it average at best. The service was good with very polite servers. It's counter service and the lines...More
