Wes has made this place into an institution! They have a daily lunch special, but how can you ever pass up the burgers here. You will need plenty of napkins for your burger. We say over and over that this place deserves to be on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Keep up the great work Wes!

We always enjoy meals at Wes'. The staff is friendly even if they are busy. We enjoy the food, and they have lunch specials. We like to get the grilled chicken sandwich or meal. The burgers and onion rings are also yummy! There is always a crowd! Enjoy a good meal that is reasonably priced!

Wes' is known for their burgers, and has become very popular, especially with the downtown Temple Crowd. My wife and I like to meet here for lunch from time to time, and appreciate the affordable pricing. The hamburger is really good, but they also have good specials from time to time. I enjoy the pork chop as well. It can... More

We stopped at Wes' on the way back from a trip to Georgetown. I located it using Trip Advisor. It was amazing! The cheeseburgers and onion rings were delicious! Highly recommend.

I've always gone to Wes's for the wonderful cheeseburger and onion rings. This trip we had just grilled burgers on Memorial Day, so I decided to try the chicken fried steak. Wow! It was the best I had ever had--and I've had my share. Apparently Wes hand cuts and tenderizes the steaks. Service is outstanding! On street parking might be... More
