We recommend that you start off with Willie’s Potato Skins, which are thinly sliced potato skins jazzed up with Willie’s famous Skinz spice, smoked bacon, green onions, and a mixed cheese and served with sour cream. For those looking for something from the sea to kick off their meal, Willie’s Haddock Bites, are delicious bite-size pieces of Atlantic haddock dipped in Willie’s light and crispy batter and deep-fried to a golden brown. Just thinking about it gets my mouth watering as both are great ways to start off your meal before diving into one of their many amazing entrees. To be honest, you cannot go wrong with any menu item, but if you like bar-b-que the ribs, pulled pork or the brisket are must haves. All offer an authentic Southern bar-b-que flavor that comes from being smoked in-house long and slow over real hickory wood before being slathered in BBQ sauce to finish off. The ribs are fall off the bone tender and not too smokey to take away from the natural flavor of the meat. Then they are finished off perfectly with just the right amount of BBQ sauce, you know the amount we are taking about, the amount that allows you to lick your fingers, because that is bar-b-que. The true test of any bar-b-que joint is in their beef brisket and Roadside Willies does not disappoint as theirs is buttery and juicy from being dry marinated and smoked low and slow over hickory wood for 12 hours, give it a try you will be happy you did.

However, if southern bar-b-que is not your thing, then you can select any one of the steaks or burgers from the menu, we recommend “The Big Willie,” which is made with double ground chuck, double cheddar and double bacon. Cooked-to- order on the griddle and served on a gourmet bun with lettuce, tomato, fried onions, and Willie’s famous burger sauce and then topped with a crown of onion rings. You will not go away hungry after that one. If seafood is your thing, no better place to get it than in Nova Scotia as Willies offers world famous Five Islands Clams along with Atlantic haddock. Both are dipped in Willie’s light and crispy batter and perfectly fried to a golden brown. The haddock can also be served pan fried or baked. In that wasn’t enough menu to think about when ordering you still have pasta and pizza options which will make you equally as happy with your selections. Remember to leave room for one of their homemade desserts before rolling yourself out to the car. It goes without saying that this is one of our personal favorite places to eat in all of Nova Scotia, when we are travelling. To be honest you cannot go wrong with anything you order as everything on the menu is amazing and absolutely delicious and made from local fresh ingredients whenever possible. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the service is on point, leaving you wanting to come back again and again for either dine in or take out. Great people. Great atmosphere. Great food. Period. So, if you have never been to Roadside Willies Smokehouse & Bar make sure it is on your foodie bucket list for 2021 and remember to tell Willie we said hello.
