“just thinking of Wimpy's makes me drool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Burgers that taste like burgers used to taste - old-school grilled, juicy & flavorful. Wonderful buns, plenty of fixin's, yummy fries & onion rings, and to-die-for hand dipped shakes. Wish they offered malt, but i won't push my luck.

We make special trips about 30 miles to go to Wimpy's, and it's time and gas money well spent!

Man. Now i want a Wimpy's!

“Great veggie burgers too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Now that we've discovered Wimpy's we get take-out from there a couple times a month. We end up eating our meal in the car because we can't wait until we get home. My husband says the hamburgers are the best around. I don't eat meat but I can say the veggie burgers are delicious! We both agree that the rolls are amazing and so are the pickles. The fries are fabulous too!

“GREAT Burgers + Fries, from PICKY burger-and-fry-eaters!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

Passed this place at least once a week for years and never tried it. We are so sorry we waited! We've been getting takeout burgers from Wimpy's about once a week for the last several months! They have a great unique taste going on with that yellowy-orange american cheese that I normally hate but love on their burgers. Rolls are delish, meat is generous enough, and toppings are per choice but fresh whatever we choose. Fries are like cut up potatoes, well fried (not underdone) and are JUST the we way like them. Yum! We've also tried the cheesesteaks, roast beef sandwich and milkshakes. Cheesesteaks are good, but roll was not the best, however we are picky Philly cheesesteak people and we would get one again so they are decent enough. Roast beef sandwich and milkshakes, we wouldn't get again. Website says hand dipped ice cream but it tasted worse than McDonald's so we were disappointed big time, esp since it cost over $4 with tax for the sucker! Would NOT recommend. We wish the shakes were 1/2 as good as the burgers and fries. They totally steal the show!

ADVICE: Go for the burgers, go for the fries, and when you go back for more ask them when the heck they are going to re-start the customer appreciation program they advertise on the website! We've bought enough for like 5 free meals by now!!!
