11/26/19 – We were invited to come inside Willie’s and take some pictures. Wow!!! It is super cool! They have fun elements like a ’57 Chevy Truck bed for their beer trough.
There’s a lot of hand painted (without a stencil) lettering on the walls, a beer bottle chandelier and a special painting of our Court House. Plus they have gathered reclaimed wood from barns and churches for many of the finishes.
The restaurant looks to be about half indoor and half outdoor space and there are garage type doors that open to create a cool open area when the weather permits. Here’s our updated gallery from the inside of Willie’s Grille and Ice House.

We thought this might be a good time to find out about Willie’s…
They started with a burger joint in Houston in 1993. Their modern stores specialize in ‘down-home Texas eats, with fun stuff like garage doors that open, troughs filled with ice-cold beer, lively music, patios, unique and custom made fixtures, hand-painted murals, plus a sandbox and arcade for the kiddos.
“Our menu features Texas favorites – a blend of good old-fashioned burgers, Southern, Cajun, and Tex-Mex – there’s something for everyone! And everything is made fresh in our scratch kitchen. We use only Certified Angus Beef in all our burgers and steaks, and we hand-bread all items to order – from Onion Rings and Fried Pickles to Chicken Tenders, Fried Catfish, and Gulf Shrimp.” See Menu Here
Willie’s has 17 Texas locations in New Braunfels, College Station, San Antonio, and Houston.
The Wolf Crossing Development, located in the southeast corner of IH-35 and University, is set for completion late 2019. Maybe Willie’s won’t be too far behind with their opening. We’ll keep you posted.
