Armadillo Willy’s Texas BQ ribs were excellent. They were so tender, juicy, and tasty. I like that they offer us a choice of any of 3 different BQ flavors. I prefer the spicy or the Chipotle. On a recent visit I had the tri-tip and...More

Rib plate was generous. There was plenty on hand at the Sunnyvale BBQ. (fellow travelers said that the San Jose location ran out on their last visit). Side items were decent sized portions. Sauces tasted good. The style was dry-rub. And the drinks were self-refilled...More

Red-white checkered plastic table cloths, Order Here-Pickup There, big TVs with sports channels, all simple and very old-fashioned. But then those baby Back Ribs. Wow.

I had a prime brisket so tender, juicy and tasty like nowhere else. Excellent pork ribs too. Good beer selection and honest price. What else you can ask for?

Pretty damn tasty barbecue options with good selection of sides. The ribs were super good and turkey was great too. Ate here twice and would go back again.

This is a good place to watch a game on one of the more basic sports channels, and get reliably good food. Some people rave about Smoking Pig, but it probably depends on your taste buds. I can walk to Armadillo Willy's a lot faster...More

I liked the place. The format is very simple... you choose what you like, you pay, they prepare and call you and you eat in the table you choose. Is not expensive and very tasty.

We visited this location to enjoy my free birthday sandwich, a benefit of having a free Armadillo Willy's membership. You'll find a wide range of barbecued meats, fries, spicy beans and slaw. Sodas are all you can drink, as is the iced tea. Draft and...More

Smoked ribs were really good. Decent beer selection. Chicken tortilla soup was delicious! Mac and cheese also great. My daughter's pulled pork sandwich was excellent. Other daughter's salad was ok - the greens could have been better. Friendly service. Prices reasonable - I'd go again.
