I keep stumbling onto these dives around town that really do have mouth watering morsels so I decided to do a series of posts about diners and dives in SW Orlando so stay tuned if you like being surprised by the food in the most surprising of atmospheres.
It’s all about the food here and not so much about the way the place looks. The shabbier the setting, the more satisfied you are with finding the place.
The first in the series is Willies BBQ on 9th St. in Winter Garden. It reminds me of a place I used to frequent in college called Betty Joe’s BBQ. I love me some southern cookin and this place is the real deal from the collared greens and corn bread to the pulled pork and ribs.
Everything’s reasonably priced and Willie sure looks proud of his work. He’s so proud, there’s no BBQ sauce out on the counters like in most places. The seasoning is just the way it should be Willie’s way.
I get a little suspicious when a BBQ place looks too fancy anyway. The antiques and rocking chairs suit me just right and puts me in the mood for some soul food.
I just wish they had fries although it’s not technically soul food. It’s french food ain’t it.
If you ever get a craving for some soul food, I’d check out Willie’s.
