Best BBQ in San Mateo

I never thought I would find such great BBQ in California. Armadillo Willy's is a great place to grab some BBQ and a great rest while your shopping. It is located in the Bridge Point shopping center near Target. You go in wait in line Order and they give you a buzzer for when your food is ready so you can go up and get it from the cook. So I was skeptical at first. However once I received my food my mind was instantl... view more

Great BBQ, dirty cups

BBQ foods are great. But all the silverwares including cups and plates are kind of dirty. I got this cup which had a bunch of BBQ sauce in it so I exchanged for another one, but that cup got some other dirt in it. Overall, the place is kind of dirty, however, the BBQ foods is good.

Armadillo Willy's BBQ

This is a very popular restaurant. There is almost always a long wait, which is somewhat odd due to the semi-fast food nature of the restaurant. Prices are also a bit too high. As for the food, it is just okay at best. I would never use Armadillo Willy's BBQ to satisfy a BBQ urge. On the other hand, it is an acceptable lunch alternative to McDonalds or Burger King so long as you are willing to spend about nine to ten... view more

better elsewhere....

As someone who was born in the south and has family currently living there, I can tell you that this is not Texas style BBQ. It's California style with a Texas label. If you want some seriously good southern style BBQ, try Roderick's Barbeque and Seafood in Dublin. Now that's some excellent BBQ!!!

Good Ribs

If you are not looking for atmosphere (and who is looking for atmoshpere in a rib joint) and you don't mind seating and serving yourself, this is a good rib place. Larger selection than some. Good beans. OK cornbread. Nice peanut cole slaw.

Texas Back 40 Barbecue 10 Times Better

We ate at an Armadillo Willy's BBQ down in the Santa Cruz area and was one of the most disappointing barbecue experiences we have ever had. The place couldn't seem to decide if it was a fast food chain or just a restaurant that didn't want to offer any service. I found the barbecue mediocre at best. If you are into quantity, they do give big portions.

After having been dragged to Armadillo Willy's the 2nd and 3rd times, I now refuse to ever eat there again. It is an insult to the term ""barbeque"".

Not All That

I too am a true Texan and ate my fair share of Texas BBQ. I believe that the good reviews from others and the top 10 rating for Willy's can be explained more by the lack of BBQ places in the Bay Area than by the quality of Willy's food. Store-bought BBQ meats are significantly better. The sausages and brisket I had were dry and tasteless compared to what I am used to. I can only guess that they started off with the w... view more
