Wild Willy’s Burgers in Quincy Stacks Up!

Published

on

There is nothing that I love more than to sink my teeth into a big, fat, delicious, juicy burger.

While on our way through Quincy, my family and I spotted a Wild Willy’s Burgers with a sign outside that boasted “Best Burgers on the South Shore”. That sounded like an invitation to me! So, in we went to see for ourselves.

Walking in you see that the decor is western, with an air of charm and comfort. You have a wonderful Western themed mural on the wall. On the other end of the dining area there is a fireplace with kitschy cute decor. You walk to the counter to place your order with a friendly member of the staff. Having never been there before, they were eager to help me decide and tell about their wonderful menu.

We decided on a Willy Burger, a “Wicked Good” Burger, and a foot-long hotdog  for our 6 year-old, with a side of fries and onion rings.

“Willy” Burger® Classic American burger with your choice of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, mustard, ketchup, pickles or mayo!

The “Wicked Good” Burger: Sauteed onions and mushrooms with Swiss and Cheddar cheeses.

Once our food arrived, I was immediately impressed with the size of the burgers. For those who think size doesn’t matter, in this case you are sorely mistaken. The burger was huge! The bun was fresh and toasted and the toppings were crisp and delicious. The Willy Burger sported a fat slice of tomato, large cuts of red onion, and fresh crisp lettuce! Classic American burger! I have to say that the flavor of the burger is so good, it’s almost a crime to cover it up with too many toppings. De-lic-ious!

The Wicked Good Burger was piled high with freshly sauteed mushrooms and onions smothered in Swiss and Chedder cheese! Again, the bun was nicely toasted and the first bite just melts in your mouth. I’m not kidding!

The burgers were cooked precisely as we ordered them and were seasoned perfectly.

Onion Rings and Fries = The perfect combination!

Hand cut Maine potatoes with skins left on, fried in vegetable oil and lightly salted.

The onion rings were clearly homemade, which to me is definitely a plus. They make it a point to fry them in trans-fat free oil.  Huge, sliced onions, cooked just right with enough crisp in the lightly battered coating. A must have every time for this family! Also, note that the portions are huge!

Foot-long hotdog! It barely fit in our camera’s lens!

Our son Braeden had a foot long hotdog just as if it came from our own backyard grill! Great flavor with this all beef dog. He ate every bite.

When we finished with barely enough room in our tummies, we decided to treat ourselves to an ice cream cone.  Wild Willy’s has fresh ice cream from Maine and load up the cone for only $1! Yep, a dollar buys you a delicious ice cream cone! Unbelievably, the choices include coffee and chocolate chip cookie dough as well as mint chocolate chip, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry!

I am a huge fan now and see why they boasted about being the best burger on the South Shore.

Go check them out for yourselves and meet the owners Paul and Ruth Bennett! They are passionate about their business and it shows in every aspect . . . from the cleanliness of the rest rooms to the way their staff treat their customers! Don’t hesitate to to give these guys your business.

521 Kitchen and Que = Our Pick for Holiday Meat!

Published

on

521 Kitchen and Que is located in Atlanta off Roswell Road and is our pick for ordering your Holiday Meal this year, and dinner tonight!

Owned by local Atlanta couple, Drew and Roma Kirkland, this is by far one of the best BBQ’s we have been to.  One thing that strikes us in particular about this restaurant is their commitment to locally sourced and fresh food. Also, they are vegetarian and gluten free friendly. Vegetarian? A BBQ restaurant is vegetarian friendly? Yes, believe it or not, as Roma told us, there are quite a lot of  vegetarians that love to grab a bite at 521 Kitchen and Que.

As someone that works with my significant other, I loved the fact that the “521” in 521 Kitchen and Que is their anniversary date. Awe… Heart melts.

So, long story short; We sampled all the yummy goodies they have and for your holiday meals, do yourself a favor and let them cook it.

 

Must have picks:

Turkey – Moist and Delicious. All your guests will be impressed.

Kale Slaw – So delightful! It doesn’t have the bitterness you might expect from Kale. It is definitely worth getting

Baked Sweet Potato – Cooked perfectly, season with salt and pepper

Brisket – Melt in your mouth delicious!

Let’s just say that we loved everything we tried and we are certain you will too.

Go ahead and try them for lunch or dinner! While you are there,  place your holiday order! Do it quickly!

ATLANTA – Any frequenter of Murphy’s knows that each plate is made up of delicious ingredients, locally grown and thoughtfully prepared. To honor the sources of these ingredients, Murphy’s is excited to continue their Farmer’s Table Dinner Series. Already proven to be a fan favorite after a sold out dinner in June, the series will take place the last Wednesday of each month. Guests are invited to enjoy a multi-course meal highlighting local farmers and their contributions to Murphy’s menu.

The first dinner of the series, a successful “trial run”, took place Wednesday, June 24, 2015 and featured farmer Richard Kessler (“RJ”) from Planted Rock Farms. The 4-course dinner included wine pairings and a variety of summer-inspired dishes, thoughtfully prepared by Chef de Cuisine Ricky Navas. Guests also had the opportunity to meet and mingle with RJ and Chef Ricky.

The next dinner will take place Wednesday, July 29 and will be hosted by Geezer’s Farm out of Gurley, Alabama, where Farmer David Sisk will travel to Atlanta to join the feast.

Midtown-Atlanta’s scrumptious Melting Pot will have a delicious 4th of July menu available–and it’s 1/4 off! Skip the grill on your holiday, because there will be a meal for everyone to enjoy aside from burgers and hot dogs. Personally, I’d get all over that watermelon and feta salad. And the Buffalo chicken.
