I just needed some bar b que. asked my hubby to go here and he was all for it. Very casual, order at the desk , get your drink and find a table. They give you a buzzer to know when your food is ready....More

lunch on occasion - not a favorite. if you hit it the right time the meat is moist but usually not. They have for sure been slipping. Other than dinner when the food is better, lunch is a fast place to go.

The restaurant has a strong delicious aroma of barbecue when you open the door and that's how it should be. I've eaten BBQ in TX and this is pretty close. It's certainly better than Dickey's (which I also like). I tried the brisket, baby back...More

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.

Armadillo Willy's on San Antonio used to be one of the best places to get BBQ in the South Bay area. Sadly, the last few times we have been there, the quality was nowhere near where it used to be. BBQ meats were rather dry...More

Lots of food done pretty well. I can recommend the pulled pork. The ordering process might be a little confusing to the unfamiliar: Stand in line, order, then go down the long hallway to the other room to get your order.

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've been going to Armadillo Willy's BBQ for years. The meats are always done well to the taste and you can pick your own sauce. The sides need some improvement. Since they changed the spice coleslaw it's not as good. The corn muffins are very...More
