It feels like you go back in time when visiting Whitey's. Good food and shakes. They have a variety of hamburgers and sandwiches, and some Mexican choices such as tacos and deep fried burritos. Most people come here for the milkshakes - they have seasonal varieties that are very popular. Everything here is cooked after ordering, and it is often... More

Lived in this neighborhood 13 years and finally decided to see what the fuss was about. Well it's not about service because I waited 30 minutes at least for a milkshake that was average. I'd drink more milkshakes but they aren't worth the calories AND the time. While waiting two different old folks walked up talking about how they'd been... More

The burgers and fries are pretty average, but they do have a fairly large selection of types of burgers, sandwiches and hot dogs. The shakes are really the thing to go for. Lots of flavors, including fresh peach shakes in season. And they have chocolate dipped cones!

Yes, you have to wait a bit. But there is a friendly crowd waiting with you and misters to cool you off. The cheeseburgers are great. Off our usual track, but we try to get here at least once a summer. Hours are a bit strange, closed on weekends I think.

We recently found Whitey's Jolly Kone when we did some business in West Sacramento. It's a nice old fashioned hamburger stand with tables for outside dining. Our burgers were real good and the fries were freshly cooked. They had a very good selection of other foods including tacos, shakes, and other ice cream treats. We didn't try them since we're...

We like the location, the food and the service. Having known Whitey since 1954, it is a pleasure to stop there. It is now run by his daughter and son- in law. We have known Paula since she was born--she had a good teacher and runs a good, clean estableishment

To the guy who said it took 45 minutes and wasn't worth the wait: Whitey's does a great job managing call in orders. The reason the wait is so long is, the food is really good!

Whitey's Jolly Kone has always been a must! The milkshakes are to die for, the prices are very fair and the food is great. It is a family run business and has a great small town feel about it. Grab a milkshake and enjoy this fifties drive-up!

A best kept secret. Old school drive in with terrific food. Seasonal specials as well. To start try the Whitey's Special with everything. Car shows on the third thursday weather permitting, Excellant coffee.
