Willie's in Covington

Today was have "lunch with my buddies day" - which is always a good day. They were all about Tiger and his US Open stint so we had to go someplace that had a TV - or a hundred of them. They work in Ft. Mitchell and I work Downtown...so in between the two? WILLIE'S IN COVINGTON!

Bottom line - it's not glamorous - the "hostess" (and I use that term lightly) was a grumpy beyotch and they're slow as God's Dog - but the food is great.

It's bar food - I had a turkey burger with "heart stopper" fries (waffle fries, cheese, bacon, scallions and ranch), one buddy had the full order of the Heart Stopper with a cup of Chicken Tortilla Soup and the other of our trio had hot wings.

How was lunch?

Tiger won and we left full and happy! (And my meal (with soda) was only $8 - it was Burger Monday!)

It's not a magical culinary experience - but for Covington - I'll take that over Tickets any day of the week!

Anybody been there? What do you think? What's your favorite sports bar?

For my rating - for what it is - I'll give it a 3 star = That's like generic mac & cheese - almost perfect - but it's not the blue box!

  1. I try to avoid Willie's as a matter of principle since Cunningham is such an asshat, but I've been there a couple times. I got the burger & fries. The burger was overdone and dry and I don't remember anything about the fries. I'd give it a 2 on your scale.

  2. Wow - an asshat??? Nice!

    I didn't pick it - but fries are always better with ranch, cheese and bacon of course!

    My turkey burger was good - and for Covington - it's okay...

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have only eaten at Willie's once, and the food was great! I had a BLT wrap, which was stuffed to the brim with lots of crispy bacon. The fries were decent, from what I remember, and our service was good considering it was our waiter's first table EVER (he was very nervous!).

    Another good turkey burger I would recommend is at Cock N Bull in Covington. They have that cajun mayo and their fries are by far my favorite fries, period.
