I usually stop by this place for lunch. This is 3.5 star rating from me, but ti give fare I put 4 star. . Pork sandwich is good, beef brisket is good too, doesn't have much smokey taste thou.

This is seems rather unassuming, but you WILL be surprised at how juicy and delicious their BBQ is! The portion size could be a bit more, but if you want tasty, BBQ the way it was meant to be, but all means Willard's IS for you!

My first experience with Willards was takeout during a proposal. Wow! The food was fantastic. I know there are a lot of barbecue snobs but this definitely one of the best in the area. Not only is the barbecue good but the sides are equally great. It's always crowded which is the first sign of success. I have used them... More

I picked up a family dinner to bring home. It was the brisket with some sides. Absolutely delicious and affordable for the quality of the food.

Today was my first visit to Willard's BBQ! I used TripAdvisor to look for a restaurant that was supposed to buy. Since I don't eat barbecue often and I love grilled and smoked food I decided to give it a try. The food is definitely better than a chain restaurant. The rice and gravy was best thing I had on...

Really good BBQ. Had the Texas plate. The meats were moist and tender with an excellent sauce. Service was quick and friendly.

Brisket is very good. If you like cornbread you should try theirs. Nice selection of bbq sauces. Good takeout option.

good food at fair prices - atmosphere is weak - seating is spartan - the food is what makes this place a good to destination

Decent BBQ, better than most chain restaurants. I usually get pulled pork, and they do a decent job. It's not on par with the best of NC, or Memphis, etc, but it's ok for NOVA. They have some good sauces, including eastern NC style sauce. My wife says the ribs are good. The sides are pretty good, too.

Very enjoyable experience. Willard's was recommended by a friend and I was extremely satisfied. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs with baked beans and potato salad. There are a plethora of other choices. All in all an extremely enjoyable meal.
