Burgers were invented during the Beef Prohibition, when bootleggers took to smuggling patties of char-grilled meat across state lines in Kaiser rolls. Continue couriering culinary contraband with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of all-American eats at Willie's Hamburgers and Chiliburgers. This Groupon is valid for redemption at two locations—16th and Broadway or Fair Oaks and Arden.
Willie's classic diner-style menus serve up hot, fresh-cooked meatiness without compromise. Dig into one of its signature Slammer chiliburgers, such as the Slammer TCC ($5.35), boasting triple patties with cheese, Slammer chili sauce, thick-cut tomato, mustard, pickles, and onions, or bang on the anvil of your appetite with a Hammer 1 ($2.90), a single-patty burger bedecked with thousand-island dressing, lettuce, tomato, and fresh or grilled onions. A side of fries or garlic fries complement any menu item ($1.90–$2.50), while a spiced-up order of chili rings ($4.85) aptly accompanies a grilled chili dog ($4.40). Willie's also serves up malt-shop-style desserts, with classic hand-scooped ice-cream milkshakes ($3.45) available in mocha, coffee, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate flavors to soothe inner fury arising from rain-ruined backyard ballet recitals.
Both Willie’s locations offer outdoor patio seating for solar-strengthened sustenance. Enjoy a quintessentially American meal without having to eat a Norman Rockwell painting with the burgers, fries, and shakes at Willie’s.
- Honestly, treat yourself to a chili cheeseburger or chili cheese fries, or if you're an onion ring fan, do yourself a favor and order a basket of them. – Joe P., Yelp
- The tomatoes, and pickles, were crisp and yummy. A great taste contrast on the chili burgers, all in all well worth the trip. Also the best darn fries n [sic] onion rings. – gdogagain, Citysearch
