Really good burgers and food

My former coworkers recommend this place. It's like the old 50s food joints, you walk up to place the order. They have a decent size menu. They have great shakes also. There are several tables and lots of parking. It can get hot during the Sacramento summer but you can eat in your... read more

Give yourself a bit of nostalgia and tasty food! Specializing in hamburgers, fries and shakes, Whitey"s gives you great quality of food and the prices are right on! Call your order in if you are taking a lunch break. Busy place, Monday's thru Friday, and yes they don't take American Express or any other plastic. Plenty of parking, outside in... More

This is a drive up, like in the car hop days. But you have to go up to window to order. You can call your order in and that's a good idea if you can. So popular and so BUSY. Everything there is the best. Reasonable price too.

Go back a few decades before franchises took over and enjoy some good old fashioned drive in " cuisine" at Whitey's. The special burger anchors a menu of traditional items. A nicely grilled patty with real bacon and all the trimmings goes for under $4. A full assortment of fried delights from mushrooms to onion rings backs up some of... More

I grew up within walking distance to Whiteys...lucky me! I am 58, and I still go to Whitey's regularly. Best milkshakes in the world! I also love their hamburgers, burritos and tacos. Prices have been reasonable for years. It's a local family run business, and it is so much better than any fast food chain! They have a steady stream... More

Whitey's has been around forever. One of their claims to fame is the seasonal Peach Shakes in summer. This is a casual place, burgers, tacos, fries, onion rings..... ALL GOOD! All the people who work there smile as if they are genuinely happy.... This is the place to go for Take Out..... Although, the shakes may not make it out... More
