POTEAU, OK:  – Local restaurant Warehouse Willy’s will be hosting a visit from America’s Best Restaurants (ABR) in mid-June 2024. 

America’s Best Restaurants, a national media and marketing company focusing on bringing attention to local, independently-owned restaurants, will bring its ABR Roadshow to the restaurant on June 21st.  Popular dishes will be highlighted, along with an extensive on-camera interview with owner Terry Williamson and manager Jesse Fout about the restaurants’ special place in the community. The episodes will be aired extensively on social media channels at a later date.

Open since 1996, Warehouse Willy’s is a renowned steakhouse in the state and won the 2000 Golden Fork Award from the Gourmet Diners Society of North America for the best steaks in the country.

The restaurant was nominated to be on the Roadshow by Debbie Curran, who noted the great food, great staff and the atmosphere. 

The restaurant’s dimly lit interior sports vintage and historical ephemera as decor, filling the walls with photographs, dollar bills, and signage of all kinds. The menu offers a solid array of dinners, burgers, salads, starters and stuffed potatoes, as well as an extensive beer, wine and cocktail selection.

The top seller which is likely to be featured on the episode is the ribeye steak, followed by the bacon-wrapped filet mignon.

“Absolutely the best thing you’ve ever put in your mouth,” Terry says of the filet.

Terry also says that consistency and an excellent staff are what put Warehouse Willy’s on the map.

“I’ve always been able to find good people,” he says. “And there’s hardly a week goes by that someone doesn’t stop me and say: ‘We’ve been eating here twenty years. It’s the same as it was the first day we walked in the door.’ Consistent.” 

America’s Best Restaurants will be filming on location on Friday June 21st from 2 pm to 5 pm CST. The press is invited to attend. The restaurant’s finished episode premiere date will be announced on their Facebook page and will be featured on America’s Best Restaurants’ website.

Restaurants featured on the ABR Roadshow are selected based on their customer reviews, menu items, social media presence, and level of involvement with their community. They are found through customer nominations, internal vetting or by a restaurant applying to be featured at www.americasbestrestaurants.com
