“Disappointed”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Our meal at Willy's was alright but nothing special. We expected to sample some local cuisine but Willy's was standard roadside fare, bland and disappointing.

“Crowd Pleaser!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We took 2 tour buses (80 Seniors) to see the "Original Drifters" at the Smokey Mtn. Center for the Performing Arts, in Franklin, NC on Friday evening, April 20th. After reading the reviews of Franklin area restaurants on Trip Advisor, we decided to take our buses to Willy's Bar-B-Que in Franklin for our preconcert dinner. (They have GREAT parking for buses). Of course we notified them a couple of weeks in advance that we were coming! We were indeed "treated like family" by Miz Charlotte and Bubba! They doted on us and the food was indeed awesome. Might I suggest the "Bubba's After-School Snak Platter," a delicious assortment of every kind of meat on their menu! (Feeds 2-3 adults). I highly recommed this restaurant...can't wait to go back again!

“Got to have my Willy's Bar-B-Que!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Willy's is one of those places that you look forward to going to. I make a trip to Franklin twice a year and always make a point to make it up the hill to Willy's. I havwe walked in with five minutes to closing and been served just as if they were opening.
I always like to get enough to have a midnight snack, take it back to the room to watch TV.
The basket of fries and meat are better than most BBQ places and the service from the time you open the door til you say goodbye is worth being treated like it was still the 1950's. The roll of papertowels make it easy to wipe your mouth as well.
They do not charge you for take out cartons if you can eat it all. Far above what you exspect for the prices paid. You will get your money's worth.

“Yummy Bar-B-Que”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

I love some good bar-b-que. This place delivers some of the best I have eaten. The only thing is they need to be open more days a week. I missed getting to eat there the last time I visited because it was closed...
