Today the Buffet o’ Blog staff visited a new restaurant in town called Wimpy’s. As you might expect from the name, they specialize in burgers. And let me say, they specialize not only in selling burgers but in making truly delicious burgers. We all agreed that the burgers tasted most excellent. If you’re looking for healthy burgers, this may not be the place, because the burgers were greasy, but they were also one of the juiciest burgers I’ve ever had. I think it’s one of the top 3 burgers in town, and arguably the best (at least based on my first visit).
The french fries are also excellent. They are battered, so they are somewhat crunchy (and perhaps even less healthy than normal), but they were just right to me. They also have sweet potato fries, if that’s your thing. We have yet to try the onion rings and milkshakes, but that will have to be on the next visit. They also have other menu items, but it would be hard to order something other than a burger because they’re so good.
The sweet tea was sweeter than average for a restaurant, but we all agreed it was just right. More points for that!
The only drawback we had was the smallness of the bacon. It costs 70 cents to add bacon to your burger, and it took a search to find it on my burger. You shouldn’t have to search for bacon on a burger! There were 2 small strips, but it looked like one piece cut in half on mine. It still added to the flavor, of course, but only to half of the burger. I think two whole pieces of bacon (for 4 strips when cut in half) is a minimum, at least when I make burgers at home. I realize many other restaurants skimp on bacon, too, so it’s not just them. But I still had to mention it for this to be a fair and balanced review.
Also, it costs more than a typical fast-food burger joint, but the food is also much better than a typical fast-food place, so it’s not outrageous. I definitely plan to go back.

I went back to Wimpy’s last night with some friends, and the burger and fries and sweet tea were all excellent again. My wife ordered a vanilla milkshake, and we were both extremely disappointed in it. It had an odd flavor, and it did not taste like real ice cream. Perhaps it was made with some generic powder mix. Whatever the origins, I don’t recommend the shake. But you should still go there for the burger and fries.
Hey Beppo, sorry your shake wasn’t good. We would love the opportunity to make it up to you. If you want, send me an email to [removed by editor] w/ your name and I will let the girls at the front know to hook you up next time you are in.
