All-American Burgers, and the best fries in town!

Cheap eats, great fries, extra grease on the burger! I can't lie, it's pretty much a staple of Tulare at this point. Not recommended for daily consumption, but it is a great treat now and then.

We were looking for a quick bite on our way to Yosemite, and Wimpy's was perfect. Well-seasoned burgers and fries served with a smile. Restroom was small and older but very clean. We'll be back when we're through this way again.

Stopped at Wimpys while driving south down to Bakersfield. OMG good burgers, great Fries and outstanding customer service Owner greets you with a handshake and ask where you're from. We both had the Double Wimpy's. One with Fries, the other with onion rings. All good Brewed Iced Tea as well. DONT PASS UP THIS GEM.

My husband and I grew up watching Popeye so when he saw the sign for Wimpy's he turned in so we could have lunch there. The man behind the counter was an interesting character and called everyone "my friend" which added to the atmosphere. We could tell that a lot of the people were locals, which is always a good...

Excellent Hamburgers and Fries! The specials are priced best and there are tables to sit and eat in! Food was served fast and exactly as ordered. Everyone was extremely nice. Also another great sign is the number of local people who came in constantly to pick up. Owner remembered each and everyone of them so they obviously come often. Also... More

Never get tired of WIMPYS!! Best fries & milkshakes!! And shaved ice! Not the prettiest place to look at, ceiling needs replaced. But I always take my food to go! Great service....

Had the expected Burger and Fries. Both were acceptable nothing that sets them apart from other Burger Shacks but a step above the run of the mill Fast Food Joints. Worth a stop, but I have passed it by more often than not. Skip the Fast Food Stops and try Wimpy's.
