Willy's Mexicana Grill Restaurant Review

: Willy’s was established in Atlanta in 1995, and all of its locations specialize in fresh food prepared quickly. Choose a filling---grilled steak with cilantro and garlic, chipotle-barbecued pork, adobe chicken, and black beans and rice---for burritos or tacos. Salads and quesadillas also are served, so vegetarians (including vegans) may dine happily, too. Tofu gets the same orange juice-based Sinaloa-style marinade as the chicken breast. We recommend the chipotle tomato and habanero salsas, the latter not being wicked hot at all, and we also like the deeply flavored "hot" sauce, although it's really quite mild. This location, on the edge of Piedmont Park, offers bottled beer and margaritas.
