Burger joints are a common fixture in many American communities. Despite the large number of McDonald's and Burger Kings, there is something that a hometown burger joint offers that their fast food equivalents cannot. The city of Fort Smith is home to The Hamburger Barn, a burger joint so popular that it spawned a clone in the nearby city of Poteau.

For many of Poteau's residents, Warehouse Willy's is the place to go for that freshly made burger. Warehouse Willy's also boasts a cozy atmosphere with its low lighting, antique memorabilia hanging on the walls, and wood furnishings. As cool and kitschy as Warehouse Willy's sounds, the feelings that Warehouse Willy's inspired for this examiner is deja vu. Warehouse Willy's is an exact replica of The Hamburger Barn in Fort Smith.

So does Warehouse Willy's measure up to The Hamburger Barn? No. The food is decent, however nothing to write home about. This examiner had the Cuban sandwich. The pork was flavorful, but the bread was soggy. Many restaurants toast the bread on their sandwiches, yet Warehouse Willy's does not (for those who question why this examiner is harping about soggy bread, the next time that you have a hot sandwich ask the server to leave the bread untoasted, then email this examiner and tell him how it tasted). The wait staff was friendly, but not very attentive. This examiner had to wait at least a good ten minutes before the server came to check on him. The ambiance was enjoyable, but it was not anything that has not been done before. So for those who are looking for a great hamburger joint, come to Fort Smith, they have plenty. For those that don't want to make the drive, then head to Warehouse Willy's.

Warehouse Willy's is located at 300 Dewey Avenue Poteau, OK 74953.
