Monster burgers and sandwiches!!! These are the best burgers I've ever had. Also their catfish sandwiches are huge and tasty and they have awesome bbq too. Yet to eat anything from Willies I haven't loved. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!!!!

Tasty and delicious po boys and hamburgers! These sandwiches are big enough to share if you dare. The shrimp po boy is my favorite. Make sure to have a very empty tummy before attempting to eat a whole sandwich. This "hole in the wall" eatery is a great place to order and take home since there's really only outdoor seating....

Got it from Trip Advisor. When we pulled up we almost drove away. Real local hole-in-the-wall. No indoor seating. Drive through was busy. 3 outside tables. My wife said we had to try it. Probably the best Cajun catfish we have ever had. Everything was fresh and made same day. Fish fish daily. A wonderful, local place that is truly... More

Delicious local food with great service, Willie's is that perfect hole in the wall restaurant. We each ordered the two piece catfish with fries and sweet tea. There wasn't much seating available so we got ours to go. When we got back we opened our food and to our surprise they gave each of us 5 pieces of catfish with... More

I got the little fish sandwich and the slaw. Couldn't finish either one. One order is enough for two. Would be 5 stars but the fish is just a little too salty for me. It's a perfect day in Dalton so eating outside was nice. I'll try a burger next time.

Thank Gordon B
