I don't think so! The prices are outrageous and the quality of the food was just not there. I spent $80 on food that was at best sub par. I will not go there again. The meat was burnt!

The first time I went was about 7 years ago and was not impressed at all with the Rib Tips I got. Have been there several times since and have liked it better each time I went. The portions are a nice size (large rib tips) but not enough fries and sides are small. The service was good and the sauces were tasty. I don't like babyback ribs and perfer large ends which most restaurants don't provide. Would like if they had burnt ends. A bit pricy but it's local and don't want to have to go all the way to the southside to get some good ribs for now.

Loved the original place when it was small and self service. Everything was great. However, they expanded and quality of food and service quickly went down hill. No longer in a price range for most families. Sorry to see the change. Will not return.

Tried their baby backs and hot links, but not impressed. I don't know where these guys get their pork, but c'mon guys, I can do better at home with meat from Dominick's. Still not sure if their hot links were bad or just barely o.k. One thing's for sure...this was an expensive mistake and yet another chicago BBQ scam. Atmosphere ain't bad and service pretty good, but not worth the price and oh did I mention the wait.

They have terrific and tasty comfort food. There's nothing better than the BBQ and the warm brownie and ice cream for dessert. It melts in your mouth! A winner everytime!

Was a huge fan of Fat Willy's in the beginning. Absolutely LOVE their spicy bbq sauce. Recently, however, I notice the prices are high and the service is low. I called for delivery on evening and was rudely put on hold (had to hang up and call back 5 times) before being told that delivery orders aren't taken until 5pm (it was 4:55). Overall - the cold and soggy food that arrived was very expensive, in my opinion. Two sandwhich dinners for $30.00. Will be trying some over, more down-to-earth bbq joints from now on.
