Fresh, succulent chicken seasoned to a killer zing, brined in buttermilk and fried to create the crunchiest piece of chicken you will ever recall tasting. Get your hands around one on a fresh soft milk bun, with Willy’s famous sauce, pickles, onion, cheese and some mild green relish. Your taste buds will hit a frenzy. But wait, there’s more! Our BBQ Smokers menu joins Willy’s Fried Chicken to take you on a tasty southern American journey. Dig into the powerful smoky flavours of our slow-cooked brisket, smoked premium sausages with pickles and slaw, fresh crusty rolls and a selection of hot, smoky sauces. Everything you would expect from a great BBQ.
