One of the last of its kind. Good burgers and shakes. Friendly owners and staff. Terrible dining room but who cares. Take it in before it is gone forever.

May not be the best you've had but to the locals this place will ALWAYS be the best! The owner is the sweetest man, the ice in the soda drinks is amazing and the burgers are always hot, messy, and yummy! The seasoned fries are a MUST along with the shakes! Yum!

We finally tried Wimpy's on our latest trip to Tulare and we'll definitely go back! Their prices are very affordable and their food is great! I love the seasoning they put on their fries!

Love the people, very friendly owners and staff. The food is good and served fresh from order and the order is ample. The signature fries are sooo good. Consistently the best burger joint in town!! Right off the freeway easy access. It's been there a long time and it shows but they keep it nice and clean there

I have heard nothing but praise about the hamburgers but to me their were just like any other hamburger. but they have the BEST fries I have every tasted, no matter how many fries you eat the seasoning will always taste different, They were awesome

We were looking for a quick bite on our way to Yosemite, and Wimpy's was perfect. Well-seasoned burgers and fries served with a smile. Restroom was small and older but very clean. We'll be back when we're through this way again.

Cheap eats, great fries, extra grease on the burger! I can't lie, it's pretty much a staple of Tulare at this point. Not recommended for daily consumption, but it is a great treat now and then.

Stopped at Wimpys while driving south down to Bakersfield. OMG good burgers, great Fries and outstanding customer service Owner greets you with a handshake and ask where you're from. We both had the Double Wimpy's. One with Fries, the other with onion rings. All good Brewed Iced Tea as well. DONT PASS UP THIS GEM.
