Uncle Willy's is like going to your uncle's house for dinner in 1984. The food is simple, classic, hearty and made with love. Once in a while, you may find that some ingredients are missing from your uncle's fridge... for example, there may be ice...More

Had an awful time finding the place and none of the locals in the mall seemed to know about it but once you exit the Bay you'll see it. Good food for the money. We loved it and went back two nights in a row.

The restaurant is good for a cheap and lazy brunch. The lunch costs you slightly more than $10. While the variety is small, chickens here have been reasonably good (was the best of its kind in early 90s), with incredibly fresh salad. Don't try any...More
