My wife and I were there twice within two weeks. We each had something different each time. The roast beef was excellent, and the eggs benedict was the best I've had for a while. My wife enjoyed the turkey dinner and also the chicken caesar salad. Excellent place to enjot great food at a reasonable price.

I usually go in the evening during the week to have a nice quiet meal with my family. I've loved every item I've tried while dining. Great place to go if you're looking for an old school diner type meal. Friendly and quick service!

The portions are quite large and the hamburger patty spills out well beyond both sides of the bun (this is a Wimpy tradition for the 10oz., the 6 oz is normal). I ordered the texmex burger and it rewarded me with all the expected toppings, flavours, plus lettuce and tomato. It was tasty and I added poutine which was served... More

The new Italian omelette is amazing! The servings are plentiful, service was friendly and fast. There was a steady stream of people lined up to eat! We will definitely return.

We decided to try out Wimpys for breakfast and weren't dissapointed. The all day breakfast menu features so many different choices, it made it hard to decide. We both settled on the typical bacon and eggs with home fries and Texas toast. It came out hot and cooked just as ordered. Fast friendly service, and a comfortable atmosphere. We will... More

Wimpy's service is great, portions are big, food is really good for the traditional breakfast of eggs, pancakes, potatoes and toast. I particularly like lighter fare and they make a great omelette with the veggies I asked for.

I've seen the roadside advertisement for breakfasts at Wimpy's many times, finally decided to give it a try. The eggs and bacon were cooked well, but not exceptional in any way. The bacon was cool, but fully cooked. My daughter had French Toast, done well. Their coffee needs improvement. We found it weak, but tolerable. I've had excellent lunches and... More

This place is a perfect greasy spoon joint! I loved the diner look and feel to the location. There is a big old jukebox in a corner and lots of little ones old school coin jukeboxes beside each table. All the wall are full of old classic American brands advertisement signs and slogans. The serve was fast and the server... More
