Totally nasty...except for the fries. I couldn't even eat the grilled cheese I ordered. I have no idea how this place has been in business as ling as it has...except Tulare standards aren't that high apparently.

This was my favorite place when I was a child in tulare and it is my favorite place now as an adult living in Oregon, I love the ice cream and the owner the old guy. He was good friends with my mom and sister when I was little. Small but homey.

Ofelia really made sure my dining experience was over the top and that my order was served up hot and fresh! Now that kind of service is hard to find especially in fast food!

The hot dog with microwaved. The chili was barely warm. The french fries were delicious. The soda was refreshing. Restaurant atmosphere was nostalgic. Should have probably ordered a hamburger sense I guess that's what they're famous for. Return visit probably not.

For me the burgers are average the fries were okay, but a lot of people seem to really like this place. It's worth a try.

Was looking for a place to stop so took to Tripadvisor to find a local spot. I ordered the Wimpy combo with cheese...for $5.25!!!! Where can you go to get a combo meal for that price...even the kids meals are more expensive than that. The burger was cooked to order and the fries were fresh and nicely seasoned. It was... More

The best burgers and fries, and the owner and his staff are fantastic. We stop there every time we are traveling 99, which is not enough. I would kill for his secret sauce for the burgers. And kind, I cannot say enough about that. A true treasure.

This local drive in has very good old fashioned hamburgers that are cooked fresh once you order them, topped with lettuce, tomato and onion. The fries are large and fresh with a gigantic portion served. The service is fast and the price is great for the budget conscious!
