This little fast food outlet has excellent burgers and fries. The burgers come with a chili sauce that make them worth the trip.

Having just moved back to Winnipeg, I had to visit what was one of my favorite burger joints. I was very disappointed!!! The fries were barely warm and the burgers tasted very processed. A lot has changed in 15 years, and not for the better.

Well worth it. A neighbourhood institution. The area has many Greek burger joints, all competing for bragging rights... The Wip always wins it! Know what you want before you walk in..... They will ask your order before they hear the door hinges. If you like a chilli burger, get the chilli burger in a bowl! Will never regret a big... More

Classic burger place that serves mediocre burgers. Nothing special here folks. The nostalgia that locals feel for this place most definitely outweighs the actual taste of the burgers. I ordered a hamburger which comes to you dressed with onion, mustard, and chili. My bun was a little on the dry side. The burger was entirely edible and I certainly ate... More

A real old fashioned place, just like stepping into history. Went with a local group, had a great ice cream delight, everyone was pleased! Top marks to this type of establishment. Great for all ages, good prices, and don't watch your Valerie's when you go here! Loved it!

Trip Advisor needs to find a way to adjust for quality. Dairi Wip is great so far as burger joints go. Sticking to the essentials - burgers, fries and milkshakes - they do it well. It even has great character (and characters). However, given how highly it gets rated, don't mistake this for fine dining. At Dairi Wip, you're overdressed... More

Service: 2 men standing in the back yelling to ask me what I want as I walk in. They took their time, but I was also the only person there. Food: Chili fries were smothered in chili. The chili was more liquidy and less chunky, but still good. The fries were really good. Thin and light, while still being crispy.... More

- Great burger, in a bowl on on a bun. Fries, cheeseburger, all very tasty. - Very classic atmosphere, which is something you can't put a price on. Ordering at the Wip is an experience that you just don't get at fast food chains.

Burgers may be good, but this place's claim to fame in my books is the cheese dogs and chili' n chips. And how is it that a place like this sells so much peach drink? Classic!
