For over a year now, I’ve been wanting to try Willie’s Food Truck. Their pictures of wings have long popped up on my social media feeds. Given that it was National Chicken Wing Day, I decided to finally stop wanting to go and just go.
I messaged my order in via their Facebook page. I ordered ten of their root beer (wet sauce) wings and ten fiesta (dry rub) wings along with some gizzards. Willie’s Food Truck gave me a time for pick up and location.
Upon arriving, it wasn’t an actual food truck. My pickup location was at Like No Other 316 clothing store at 21st and Broadway. I paid for my order via CashApp and made my way back home.
To kick things off, I liked how they tried to be very creative with their wing flavors. In hindsight, I should have tried more flavors to get a bigger sample size of their menu.
My lunch started off with the gizzards and ironically enough that was my favorite part of my meal. There was a lemon pepper seasoning over the top. While it was quite salty, I enjoyed the flavor and the small kick of heat with it. `
The fiesta wings were a dry rub and also salty. Everyone else had home thought the wings were dry. The root beer wings fortunately were much better. While I wouldn’t say they tasted like root beer, it was more of a sweet bbq flavor; still good though.
Unfortunately with food supply issues, I was told the wings weren’t the best quality at the moment. The owner’s supplier had to change things up for them, so I may have to go back once this crisis is over to get a real gauge on what the wings are like as the ones today were noticeably smaller than the pictures shown on Facebook. What I can attest to at the moment is the gizzards were great. So until then, I’ll have to wait for a revisited review.
Here’s their menu:
