Natomas Bites: Willie J’s Burgers & More

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

Tonight we tried Willie J’s Burgers & More and we were not disappointed.

The restaurant is still in a soft opening with construction literally going on around diners.

While the eatery itself is currently a blank slate, the potential is there.

Willie and his wife took our order. They were friendly and very patient when my kids spilled their drinks – not once, but twice.

Jon had the bacon cheeseburger. The bacon, he said, was “excellent.”

I had the salmon burger in a lettuce wrap (dang diet), but it too was yummy – served with lemon, onions, pickles and tomato.

The kids split a Willie’s burger – two grilled cheese sandwiches with a burger inside (we ordered a defibrillator with it). Oh man, it was sinfully good!

Our foursome also tried the fries and agreed they are the best you can get in Natomas.

The menu is varied an includes an all-day breakfast (oh, yeah!), to pizza, rice bowls, and sandwiches – including a shrimp po’ boy.

Willie told us he wants his place to be the neighborhood hang out. He has plans for a grand opening next month.

With the great location that is an easy walk from most of Natomas Park, to the easy-going atmosphere, and most of all great food, we think (and hope) they will be successful and “hang out” in Natomas for a long time!

Willie J’s Burgers & More is located at 2010 Club Center Drive, Suite 100, on the corner of Danbrook Drive, and is open 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. (916) 285-9379
