Everything is good here

Try anything from their menu, everything we've tried has been really good. For breakfast, lunch or dinner and specially for dessert, it's all good any time of the day.

Whiteys is one of the last remaining drive ins from the American Graffiti area. The food is good, typical of the fare offered at stands which used to be everywhere before the advent of the chain fast food stores. Be patient, it takes a while to cook a fresh hamburger, make a milk shake, but the crowds that are always... More

My family has enjoyed occasional visits to Whitey's over the years. Whitey's is a West Sacramento landmark with a lot of history. Small in size Whitey's attracts large crowds with it's inexpensive and good food. Whitey's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Mon.-Fri. Breakfast items include sandwiches, burritos, coffee, lunch and dinner selections are the same, burgers, fries, and more, milkshakes... More

It's a classic! The food is excellent, from the tacos to the burgers to the BLTs. Show up early and avoid the rush. You may have to wait a bit regardless of the time you show up.... be ause they take care in cooking it right.

Whitey's is a true throwback to the 50s/60s -- in a great way. Fabulous bacon cheeseburgers, malted milkshakes, fries, and much more. The prices are also great. Yum yum, and then some!

Blackberry, banana, pineapple, you name it. They have the best milkshakes around. Served alone or with their beef burgers, veggie burgers, or salmon burgers or even their good selection of Mexican food, you can't beat the prices. Shop local(ly) and support good food and shakes at terrific prices!

Don't let the little walk-up stand fool you. Whitey's is kind of a big thing in West Sac. Local family owned, Whiteys is basic fast food at its best and the prices can't be beat either. Their shakes are thick and creamy with more flavors than anywhere else. My favorite is their tostada and my kids love the curly fries.... More

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
