“Who knew? This is the burger joint to visit.”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Upon our weekend in Merced to visit family, we wanted a burger - not McDonald's, or In and Out..a good homestyle burger. I went to the internet and voila! We discovered H&W. This is a burger joint - complete with homemade root beer? yay. happy dance. Burgers come with shredded lettuce, good toasted bun, mine with guacamole (yum). Crinkle fries are standard, AND..drum roll - zucchini fries! They.were.awesome. If we would have had more time, I would have came back for sure - their menu has plenty to try! You can sit in your car, or join someone at an outdoor picnic table if the weather permits.

“Fun family place”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Love this find. Food is always great, service is always friendly, we make it a point to eat here often. Sitting at the tables during the summer is always a treat. The French burger is the best!!!

“Classic”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I'm no so sure about the food...I had just one small burger. Really neat and clean shaded patio in the back, with varnished wood picnic tables. Cool!

“quick and good”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Old fashion outdoor restaurant. Go up to the window. Order. Comes out great. Burgers and more. Very good and inexpensive too. Check out the Collectible store next door while you're there.

“Good old fashioned drive in”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great drive in. Good burgers, especially the Guacamole Burger. Fries are great, both regular and curly. Nice waitresses...friendly and fast. Good place to stop for a great lunch while out and about.
