Texas-style ribs with all the fixings are the draw at this family-friendly mini-chain.. The Scene Each of the locations of this growing empire is a casual spot that's just right for the whole family. Southwestern accents give diners plenty to look at, and many of the restaurants feature outdoor patios.
The Food Peninsula natives John Berwald and John Carroll made a point of getting to know Texas barbecue before opening their first Armadillo Willy's in Cupertino in 1983. It shows in their baby back pork ribs and St. Louis cut spareribs (order hot sauce on everything; the mild is strictly for wimps). Ribs are thick-cut and smoky, glazed with sauce and served with a choice of sides. Beans and corn muffins are great complements, but the coleslaw studded with peanuts is merely peculiar.
Still the Best!.
When I worked for Apple in 1983 I remember this place opening their first store in Cupertino. It's still the best barbecue in town. How many other restaurants are still here after 20 years? I love the peanut cole slaw and the fries are addicting. Pork Deluxe sandwich is all I ever order, you can't top perfection.
Reasonably priced, very tasty, and incredible choices make this, by far, the best barbecue around. The slow-cooked pork and the brisket are delicious, corn muffins are terrific. Terrific sandwiches, burgers and fries, too! Perfect lunch spot.
