“Tasty Local Drive In”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This local drive in has very good old fashioned hamburgers that are cooked fresh once you order them, topped with lettuce, tomato and onion. The fries are large and fresh with a gigantic portion served. The service is fast and the price is great for the budget conscious!

“Best little burger joint around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want an old fashioned, great flavor hamburger like the diners used to make, this is the place. Don't plan on being wowed by the decor, the building is old and the inside dated. But Aziz will treat you like family and is always happy to help. They make a killer chili cheeseburger. Thier seasoned fries are the best!! They also have that really small shaved ice in their drinks, which makes any soda taste better! They are right off Hwy 99 on Tulare Ave. If you are passing through and looking for something better than a fast food burger, stop here!

“Local burger's, fries & zucchini wedges all made with fresh ingredients at very resonable prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Found Whimpy's burgers on yelp and decided to stop and try out this local hangout. Small, cozy and very clean establishment serving tastey burgers at very resonable prices.
Several young hanging out at this location enjoying handfuls of great burgers.
Easy on and off the 99 via Tulare Ave.
A wonderful alternative to fast food burger joints!
