“With Attitude - A good one”
Review of Wimpy's Diner

Wimpy's Diner
Ranked #48 of 86 Restaurants in Lindsay
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Wimpy's is Wimpy's! It is usually a no surprise restaurant with a menu of items that satisfy one's hunger for simple fare. But, something sets this Wimpy's restaurant apart from all of the others I have been too - and I have been to quite a few. It's the attitude and dedication of the people who are in this place that make the difference. The usual thing that happens in all restaurants is that the wait staff inquires if the food is okay - this one too - but it goes beyond. The waitress was extremely attentive and not just to get a good tip. She was really concerned about the food experience and was going to make sure that any needs that came up were immediately taken care of. Take it one step further... From the kitchen area the chef calls to us and asks if the food is okay and then comes out to talk. It is apparent that he is truly concerned about the meals he had prepared and wanted to make sure that we were satisfied with what we received. He was upbeat, friendly, courteous, dedicated to his profession and if anything was amiss he was there to make it right. The important thing to him was the customer experience in all areas and his attitude and actions certainly made the customer experience reach a very high level. So, we've got decent well cooked food, an attentive server, a very clean restaurant - people who really care about what they are doing and there to make sure that we get the highest standards and consideration possible - in short - a great experience and its not in one of those upper class expensive restaurants - its a diner! Applause and many accolades to these people. We are not locals but when we are back this way this will be one of the destinations. Congrats

I usually go to Wimpys Diner in Lindsay at least once a week for breakfast.
The meal is good, the service is excellent and the staff are friendly.
It is a chain restaurant with no surprises and with enough local charm to keep you coming back.
The restaurant menu has enough choices with lots of diner comfort food.

I have eaten at the restaurant a few times.
The meals are predictable and usually well cooked.
It is a chain restaurant. No real surprises.
