I grew up in Nampa, graduating in 1965. Wheelers was, by far, the best hamburger in town. Can't tell you how many I ate there. Upon returning, I decided I needed a good hamburger so I went back. It was good, but not near as good as they used to be. In the 60's, the sauce, the grilled wide long... More

Went with a nostalgic view of a long time local business. First impressions - not clean (from the drive through window) counters, floors or employees. We only ordered shakes chocolate /banana and the banana was FAKE! Totally gross tasting complete waste of money. Didn't get past the first bite...sadly we will not return.

This place has been here for years and years. Locally owned. I've always liked the home town feel of this place and still eat there once in awhile, but their burgers are just so-so. Their shakes are awesome and they'll make them any way you like. They also serve Malted. Whevever I've eaten there the food is always hot and... More

Absolutely horrible! Burger was dry and over cooked. Could taste burnt patties. Will never eat there again.

Worst food I've eaten in years! I had been told the iconic Wheelers was a great dive place. Wrong! I ordered the finger steaks and paid $8 for five steaks that were cold and over cooked. The hamburger my husband ordered was cold and the meat tastes old like it had been sitting out all day. The tater tots were... More

This food is really really good to me. I have been so impressed it is the same as it was 18 years ago when I first remembered it. I absolutely crave the flavor of the Hamburger. I love how it is a long oval patty. The milkshakes are the best in the west. They are the only place I have... More

I do love a house made finger steak and they are good but expensive for what you receive. The corn dogs are great and when you are craving that fair delight, they do make a good one. Pretty much a ma and pa greasy spoon. No indoor seating and only outdoor limited seating, best to drive through.

When you get your order, Your expecting to have it right! Not in my case. I got home to eat my lunch and found my cheese burger had NO cheese! I take my order back, they look it for them selves, touching my food with their bare hands, they put a slice of cheese on my burger and they attempt... More

Okay, so I'm prejudiced. I gobbled these things when I was a teenager in the '60s. Just got back for the first time in 27 years, and had to have a Wheeler's. Still the same, and that's good. Good for a drive-through burger. It's not the same as a fancy restaurant chopped steak sandwich piled high with ingredients, but it... More
