This was my third spot. Willie’s is a combination barbecue, Creole food and soul food joint. I had mixed reviews about the food, but mainly because everything was drowned in sauce. I never ask for the sauce on the side because I want to experience the barbecue as the owner would normally serve it.
BBQ chicken and hot links
Pork spareribs and beef brisket
Pork chop “sandwich”
Here’s my rundown:
Beef brisket–pretty standard, not a lot of smoke flavor though. Chicken–very good, bone-in chicken. Hot links–very good spice and a coarser grind. Pork chop sandwich–excellent! A thin pork chop, perfectly fried and seasoned. Pork spareribs–pretty standard. Baked beans–pretty standard. Greens–pretty standard. Potato salad–very good texture. 7-Up–very good, but not super moist as others that I’ve had. This was more like a great sour cream pound cake.
The barbecue here is pretty average, but I would return to Willie’s to try the Creole and soul food options.
