Willy's Mexicana Grill Restaurant Review

: With many locations around the metro area and even on Concourse B at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Willy’s specializes in fresh Tex-Mex-style fare prepared quickly. Choose a filling --- grilled steak with cilantro and garlic, chipotle-barbecued pork, adobe chicken, and black or pinto beans and rice --- for burritos, quesadillas (two sizes) or tacos. The tortilla chips that come with it all are warm and crisp. Salads 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. Chipotle tomato and habanero salsas taste terrific, the latter not being wicked hot at all, and we like the deeply flavored "hot" sauce, although it's really quite mild. Beer and margaritas are offered, but do try the house-made lemonade. The few outdoor tables at this location are on a sidewalk, so alcohol cannot be consumed there.
