The location and patio is the difference maker here. Positioned right next to the east entrance to Piedmont park, it's probably the best spot in town to people (and dog) watch. Hang out long enough, and you might just spot the likes of the Midtown Pig, the dude with like 12 pit bulls, or the Ambassador of Mirth himself - Baton Bob.

Obviously if you're looking for authentic Mexican this isn't your place, but for California style burritos and such, I consider the food at Willy's a step up from Moe's and Chipotle without stepping up in price.

Pros: good cheap eats, people watching

Cons: no beer on tap anymore, parking can be tough when nice out

.

The patio is the draw for this location. It's on Piedmont Park and is full of activity on weekends. It's a burrito place--not fancy and not stuffy. It's a great value and you can get healthy food if you want as well. Very very casual. They don't have liquor, just beer and wine. When it first opened it was predominantly a gay clinential, but now is more mixed. It's midtown so expect a live and let live crowd.

Fresh Ingredients, the meat selections are tasty for burritos and taco salads. Not as rambunctious as Moe?s. Nice place for an office sponsored lunch.

Healthy and fast food are words not often associated with each other, but they fit the menu at Willy's. Burritos, quesadillas and tacos can all be ordered in healthier vegetarian versions. Two of my favorite items are the veggie burritos and the tofu tacos - both surprisingly good.

The food at Willy's is very tasty for what it is (Mex American).
You will not find authentic Mexican here. Willy's is more of a
very fancy Taco Bell but with huge portions. The prices are great
(very inexpensive) and the service is fairly quick for a place
that always seems packed.

Willy's wins with their Piedmont Park location. The chicken and most toppings are better at Moe's but Willy's is a good substitute if it is what's close. Stay away from the Nachos...they never give you enough cheese.

I was disappointed in the food......my burrito came with the primary ingredient being rice....and lots of it.....never associated burritos with rice in the first place....the overwhelming taste was bland. Have not been back.

My family has severe food allergies. Willy's is the only fast food place that we can all enjoy together. The food is super-fresh made even better by service with a smile. I especially recommend the tofu tacos. My husband, who used to be a confirmed meat man, even switched to tofu burritos at Willy's. Now that all the info is coming out on how fattening all the traditional fast food haunts are, we feel even smarter for finding Willy's, which is California-fresh Mexican food--not the greasy, icky stuff of a lot of Atlanta Mexican food joints.

Willies is one of the best places in Atlanta to grab a quick, healthy bite to eat. I've never had a dish there that I did not like. The veggie burritos are great, and the tofu is marinated in a tasty sauce. All of the vegetables and sauces they use taste and look fresh. It is also among the cheapest of the burrito restaurants. Good, quick, and cheap. You can't ask for more!

Great burritos in a great location. It's so nice having a cheap meal option on the Piedmont Avenue side of Piedmont Park. Get a burrito with green mole sauce--they'll put it on anything--find a shady spot in the park or just hang out on the patio. Willy's does charge extra for additions like olives so be careful when you order.

Willy's (owned by a Tarheel!) has grown like a watered weed over the last few years. I recently stopped by this location on a Friday afternoon, only to run into a line out the door. Not happy upon seeing that, but once I had a cold beer and jumbo sized mole burrito in front of me, the line was forgotten. Highly recommneded.
