Only open on weekdays this place appears to be very much a local favorite for burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches & of course milkshakes. It has the feel of a 50s drive in. No skating servers though. My burger was excellent!

I love this place. The prices are really low, so I ordered a lot. I got the deep fried burrito, a burger, and the jalapeno poppers. Everything was great. Next time I'm going to try one of their sludges and get fries too and try more of the Mexican food. Classic burger joint with good food and low prices.

Very popular and very overrated . This doesn't mean it is bad, but it is not great either. I had their 1/3 pound cheeseburger, milk shake and onion rings greasy, milk shake watery and the Buger tasteless. Neither of my comments detracts or can explain why this place is so busy. The only plus is friendly service and price. No... More

My former coworkers told me about this place. We would place phone orders and pick up the order during lunch. There is plenty of parking, even for some of the bigger trucks and SUV. There are 2 walk up windows for placing an order. Two yellow tables and some smaller tables to enjoy your meal. They play 50s music and... More

A friend suggested lunch at Whitey's. It was my first time here. There was a line even at 1:45 pm on a Thursday. I ordered a deluxe burger with curly fries and a vanilla milkshake, and my friend had an onion & pepper burger and root beer float. We waited 20 minutes to get our food. My deluxe burger and...

This is a great place to go if you're looking for a lot of value on a very tasty meal. I would definitely visit again. It feels like going back to a simpler time where you don't have to really worry about the hustle and bustle. All the seating is outside, but adequately shaded. And while the place is pretty... More

A Bacon cheeseburger, fries and a fresh peach shake. Good food, great shake equaled a perfect lunch on a summer afternoon.

Known for their peach milkshakes when fresh peaches are in season, try one if you find yourself in this area. Made with fresh peaches and chunks found in the shake, there's nothing better on a hot summer day.

As a hometown girl, this place is awesome. Food hasn't changed and is typical hamburger stand fare. The shakes are very good and prices are reasonable.

This place is famous for its fresh peach milkshakes. They are really good but a visit outside of the peach season is worth making if you want an old fashioned experience. Good burger, fries and shakes, eaten while sitting at picnic table next to the parking lot.
