I made a quick stop at Wimpy's to get take out for my trip home. It was very good. The service was fast and the staff were very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant in Oshawa anytime.

Really enjoy the variety in the menu. Have been there for breakfast/brunch for hearty meals as well as for lunch and a great burger! Comfortable booths give intimate atmosphere. Friendly staff make it a nice place to eat.
