We’ve reviewed Wimpy’s burgers before, and in summary, they’re awesome. Well, now Wimpy’s has a burger challenge for those who dare to attempt it. It is a burger with approximately 4 pounds of beef and a 10″ bun, with a pound of battered french fries, and a 24 oz. shake. I saw a picture of it next to a double, and it was HUGE. When I went, 5 people had attempted it and all had failed. They have the challenges on Tuesday nights. I talked with one of the workers about it, and she said it was a good time.
I don’t plan to take this challenge. I might could’ve eaten it back when I had a metabolism, but not now. But if any of you would like to take it on, I’ll go along to provide commentary and document it on the blog.
Visiting Wimpy’s website today, I see that someone conquered the burger challenge this week. I’m impressed. That’s 5-6 pounds of food plus a shake. And that’s a lot of beef to eat at one sitting.

On Wimpy’s Facebook page, some woman complained that her husband got a card in the mail for a free burger on his birthday. She was apparently distraught because they never signed up for anything. Perhaps she’s never heard of direct marketing… I mean, does she not get other targeted “junk mail” like pre-approved credit card offers? Whatever…
Either way, I hope Wimpy’s will send me a birthday card offering a free burger, because I’ll gladly use it!
I’ll gladly pay them on my birthday, for a free burger today! 🙂
Thanks for the mention! Just ran across your blog. Just so you know, we do the Wimpy’s Burger Challenge every Tuesday Night during Student Night where student’s get a 40% discount. Since there’s usually a pretty good crowd that night we usually have a really good time. Hope you can join us some evening!!
