Wild Willyâ€™s is a great local restaurant that deserves a region-wide fan base. If youâ€™ve been dealing with GF issues and you want to take your family out for dinner to a great burger joint, this is the place to go, even if you have to drive a distance to get there! As far as we know, itâ€™s the only place in the greater New England area that you can get a GF burger (on a GF bun) and GF fries! And it couldnâ€™t be easier to get to. Itâ€™s located right at the intersection of I-290 and I-190 in Worcester, MA.
When my husband and I finished our meal, we both agreed that this place is tops. Everything is made fresh to order. The wait isnâ€™t very long at all. The service is excellent; the prices are more than reasonable. And they have GF pickles! Five for a buck! As for me, if I have a chance to eat French fries, crisp, warm, full of potatoey-goodness, smothered with Heinz ketchup, Iâ€™m first in line.
So, have I piqued your curiosity yet? Let me tell you about Wild Willyâ€™s in Worcester. This restaurant is on the cutting edge of restaurants that know what customers want. There are so many people (Celiac or gluten intolerant) who have requested gluten free menus. And Wild Willyâ€™s in Worcester listened. Not only did they listen, but they really went the extra mile. Take it from me â€“ my husband and I travel quite a lot â€“ I only wish that other restaurants would go to the same lengths that Wild Willyâ€™s did in serving their GF customers.
In designing their GF menu, they worked with a very experienced Gluten Free consultant, Rick Fask of Good For life foods, LLC. Rick helped them create a GF menu that completely reflects their regular menu and gives GF diners an absolutely authentic GF burger experience from start to finish. The owners of the restaurant, Bob and Jan Stein, as well as the staff, are well-trained, making certain that the GF foods are indeed gluten free. They also fully understand the importance of avoiding cross contamination. All orders are made fresh to order. All GF items are marked GF, prepared and served separately. Let me tell you something folks, this restaurant did their homework in a big way!
Hereâ€™s a quick overview of Wild Willyâ€™s GF menu:
Char-grilled Burgers and Char-grilled Chicken on a butter/toasted GF Bun
GF Hand Cut French Fries (dedicated GF fryer)

By the way, I didnâ€™t get any financial remuneration for writing this review. Iâ€™m just one happy customer. Wild Willyâ€™s, thank you for listening and for giving us gluten free folks a fabulous gluten free dining experience.
