Willy's serves hearty Mexican fare
Each Thursday, Buckhead Patch will tell you about a weekend place to eat. The restaurant might be perfect for you and the kids, or it might be a place for an elegant, intimate dinner for couples. Or, a spot for a bash with the buddies and girlfriends.
We open with the Willy's Mexicana Grill at the bustling Roswell-Wieuca Shopping Center, which is especially busy on weekends. The locally owned Willy's can be found all across Atlanta, serving hearty burritos, nachos, tacos and quesadillas, individually prepared to your taste.
While the Willy's experience is consistent around town, the Roswell-Wieuca Willy's, at the corner of Roswell and Wieuca roads, gives a special flavor of North Buckhead. The neighborhood feeling especially comes alive at lunchtime on Saturdays when the place is jammed with families and kids' teams from Tophat Soccer, the Northside Youth Organization or Sutton Middle School.
Still wearing their uniforms, the kids come in with hearty postgame appetites. Dads, Moms, grandfathers and grandmothers chow down with their young athletes, replaying the action from the field of play. Along with sports league families, friends and neighbors often run into each other at lunch, pausing to chat and catch up with the latest news. For sports fans, TVs show games from around the country.
The order line generally moves quickly, even at the busiest times. Adults can grab a beer with their meal, and young dating couples also enjoy the scene. Ingredients are varied, from adobe chicken to chipotle pork. Along with salads, Willy's also serves chicken tortilla soup, just right for chilly evenings. The Roswell-Wieuca Willy's is a neighborhood favorite, which keeps folks coming back.
