I made a point of stopping here for lunch based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. I had the #2 (Bruto burger, fries, and soda). The burger was better than most burger chains but I've had better at other independent places. The fries were among the best I've had anywhere. And the service was both efficient and friendly.

The seven of us loved this little joint not far off the freeway. Thanks Trip Advisor. It was packed with a line to one order taker.

Wimpys makes the best seasoned fries in town!!! You must try them out : ) Their burgers are delicious too. Definitely would recommend them. Small restaurant, but definitely worth a visit.

Good old fashioned hamburgers and fries. Also enjoy a real milkshake. It's a small dinner, so get there before the lunch and dinner crowd. Very reasonable prices.

One of the last of its kind. Good burgers and shakes. Friendly owners and staff. Terrible dining room but who cares. Take it in before it is gone forever.

May not be the best you've had but to the locals this place will ALWAYS be the best! The owner is the sweetest man, the ice in the soda drinks is amazing and the burgers are always hot, messy, and yummy! The seasoned fries are a MUST along with the shakes! Yum!

Love the people, very friendly owners and staff. The food is good and served fresh from order and the order is ample. The signature fries are sooo good. Consistently the best burger joint in town!! Right off the freeway easy access. It's been there a long time and it shows but they keep it nice and clean there
