I was excited to go to dizzy whiz as it has been around since 1947. After visiting I have no idea why it has survived that long. I got the dizzy whiz burger and a double cheeseburger neither were good more accurately not even average. Sadly the prices for the sandwiches was very overpriced. If you want a bad hamburger...

This was a great little gem. Loved the Whizz Burger So good. We ate at the ancient counter and it was so fun to go to a place that is obviously an institution.

I heard about this place from the Freakanamics Podcast and happened to be in Louisville the next week, so I stopped into try it out. In the day of "gourmet" burgers, it was nice to go back to the basics. Their special Whizz Burger is just a simple cheeseburger with special (mayo) sauce, but still tasted great. We got two... More

Used to eat here a lot years ago. DW is a nice little diner, drive in, and carry out joint. They've been in business forever and are an institution in Old Louisville. We stopped in for lunch yesterday and ate inside. We had the Whizzburger baskets (1 reg, 1 super) and a cup of chili with cheese and onions (total... More

We always stop by for a bite when we drive downtown. The food is fantastic. Really laid back atmosphere. Nothing about this place has changed in 30 years, and I love that! Louisville style comfort food. If you're visiting Louisville and you want a great burger, this is the place.

We normally eat at the curb in our car, but it was just too hot today. The air-conditioned dining area was busy at 12:30 today, but still had room for two adults and two kids to eat comfortably. My favorite burger place in Louisville, and great milkshakes as well.

very good diner food, good prices. Only thing that keeps it from a "5" was that parking was a little "sketchy" with some random characters hanging around the parking lot, but all was well.

The burgers are really good with their special sauce. The fries are pretty good too. I got a Heath flurry for dessert which was pretty good. The candy pieces seemed a little chewy but it was a still ok. Most of the staff are pretty nice. If you are in a rush, this might not be the place to eat... More
