Fabulous for the 2nd time!

We called Wes' for a last minute place to bring a group of 45. They went out of their way to accommodate us with super fast service and wonderful food! Wes is an awesome host!

Wes's is awesome. Great place to get a burger or chicken fried steak. Just make sure you get the season fries! The old location suffered a fire and they are currently operating out of local bar "green door" which isn't bad but the smell of smoke can be a bit unappetizing. That's the only reason Wes's didn't get the 5... More

Wes' Burger Shack is by far my favorite lunch spot. I usually get the Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes and Side Salad. The Chicken Fried Steak is homemade and absolutely delicious every time! Wes' has a great atmosphere and the staff is super friendly. If you're looking for a restaurant with a small town feel, this is the perfect place!... More

Nothing fancy here--just great "down home" food with terrific service! There are daily specials for $7.00--chicken fried steak, pork loin, pot roast, etc. I had a cheeseburger with fries. The cheeseburger "ruled", but the fries were just your typical frozen ones. The chicken fried steak at the next table looked really, really good. This place is super busy, so parking... More

Hambugers, chicken fried steak, onion rings all are awesome. His chicken fry is real meat not frozen patties. Service is excellent.

We stopped here on our way home to Waco. Decided to get burgers based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. Burgers were tasty and not too greasy. French fries and onion rings were delicious, very fresh. Staff was very friendly and quick. Owner was walking around checking on everyone. Will go back if ever in Temple again!

This place has absolutely the best chicken fried steak and I have tried many. It is a nice family run cafe style hole in the wall. The food is always great. Christian values, absolutely nice people. Texas atmosphere. Frog legs on Fridays.

Just a local hole-in-the-wall burger joint. The burgers and tots are TO DIE FOR. The folks who work here make a point to learn your name and what you like (if you come often enough) and it's very small town.
