Armadillo Willy's is a chain BBQ restaurant. They have a good selection of meats and flavors and good portions. If you are not too picky about your BBQ, and want a change of pace, this is a great place to get a good meal.

Lived in Texas and really had a hard time finding decent BBQ in the Bay Area. Armadillo Willy's was a welcome find. Really like all of their meats, especially the ribs. We order the family rib pack and usually get three meals for two from it. The only thing we pass on is the cornbread muffins as we find them a bit too dry but if you hit them with a little butter and honey they'll be fine.

Good B B Q with lots of TV's to watch. Quick service, but only drawback is plates seem to be different at different times when you order (one time it has some condiments on it and other times not)

Simply THE BEST baby back ribs! Delicious! I also enjoyed the Caesar salad & sweet potato fries! Lots of additional side dishes! My husband had the BBQ beef ribs & our friends had pulled pork! All four of us left very happy! Aside from the delicious ribs & sides...they also have a nice selection of beers on tap! Try the 805! Excellent! ENJOY!
