Is this the best Wimpy?

This review may interest people who normally never go to The Wimpy: they may be as pleasantly surprised as this reviewer was. The reviewer got off the train looking for a Starbuck or Mugg and Bean but these were nowhere to be found and so with great misgivings went into the Wimpy. What a good... read more

Stopped off for quick lunch midweek. Staff who served us were extremely friendly and helpful. Person who seated us somehow guessed I had a headache and immediately offered me some water so I could take a tablet. Totally friendly and attentive yet professional without. Highly recommended. Food came quickly and was good value.

We was walking about and fancied a afternoon tea and cake. We noticed the chocolate cake in the window on a poster and ventured inside. There was a young guy behind the counter that I believe was the chef, the manager, the cashier, the customer service attendant, the most politest person you could ever meet. We were served attentively and... More

As a family of 5 we struggle with finding a restaurant where everyone is happy. Thankfully, the Wimpy in Grays always satisfies all of us. The warm friendly welcome, the really tasty quarter cheese, egg and chips and the yummy deserts that the children love make it the best restaurant in Grays.

Out with my Daughter and Grandaughter the other day and wanted to eat out so we found ourselves in the Wimpy in Grays and I'm glad we did. The food was excellent and the staff were polite and most helpful with catering for the baby. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definately be back.

Popped in to escape the chaos of Christmas shoppers and was pleasantly surprised by the changes on the menu, as I've not had a Wimpy in years. The staff were really friendly, and the food was quick to come. Absolutely loved my 'off menu' request of the old fashioned bender, egg and chips, which was cooked to perfection. Try going... More
