Grest food

Great fish on Fridays, salads, chicken fried steak, onion rings, cold slaw and French fries. We all enjoyed everything we ordered. Really enjoyed it!

whether it's for the burgers and fries, the chicken fried steak, or fried catfish, Wes's Burger ShacK is a local dining MUST. As I write this review, he's preparing to move back to the original downtown Temple location on Main St. from their temporary location in S 2nd

We ate at Wes's on 8/7/15 after seeing it online while passing through Texas. What a great experience! The food was excellent and the service and prices were also! Great burgers, onion rings, and fried mushrooms! Great lunch experience! Friendly "small town" treatment!

Visited Wes's with a business associate. Great food-awesome fried mushrooms and burgers. Catfish was OK-too much breading. Service was great on a very crowded lunch hour!

Usually go with a group of 10 to 12 folks every Thursday because that is Chicken Fried Steak Day as the lunch special. Wes' is the best Chicken Fry and Hamburger location in downtown Temple. Come hungry because portions are not small. Hand breaded onion rings are to die for.

This is the best place to go for a variety of foods. Great prices and wonderful taste. Big portions. Wes is the best. Been going since he first opened in Heidenheimer Texas. It's aim to please. Just wish they still had their fried ice cream. Thanks Wes for what you do.

Short title, but it says it all. Wes' is the favorite for burgers around Temple. A few years ago a fire destroyed their building, and they've just recently opened again to much excitement around town. The beef is high quality, and the burger cooked to perfection, done how you want it. I love the burger with jalapenos and cheese. The... More
