Step back in time to the 1950s. This place has a set down soda fountain style area. And the burgers are OK, if you like that sort of burger. The fries are good and I rate the food oK at best.

This is your quintessential dive burger joint! If you want a great burger, for a cheap price then this is the place to come. The burger resembles a Big Mac but with white secret sauce. Served with crinkle cut fries. I have been told they also have great shakes but I didn't order one. (Had to save something for the... More

Well, today I was driving back from central Indiana. I was in the mood for a good hamburger. Tired of the same old fast food places--McD's, Wendy's, BK, etc....I was looking for something more homey. More mom and pop type restaurant. I had been wanting to try the Dizzy Whiz for quite some time; I see it when I am... More

I stopped for lunch here with a friend a few weeks ago. I had heard about this Louisville tradition for many years but had never been. You order at the counter and wait until your order is ready. It did seem to take a while to get our food considering there was only a few people ahead of us. I... More

This was recommended to us by a very loyal Louisville Cardinal alum. I must say it was worth a visit. We had a Wizz burger, fries and drink. This was a real bargain and the food did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful when making our choices. It was a pleasant step back in time for this Jayhawk!

This place is nothing to look at from the outside but they make great burgers! This place has been flipping burgers since 1947 and The Whizzburger is the featured burger. It's a 2 patties wiyhb3 pieces of bun, cheese on 1 burger and mayo and lettuce on the other. Big Mac - step aside cuz the Whizzburger was here first!!

I was excited to go to dizzy whiz as it has been around since 1947. After visiting I have no idea why it has survived that long. I got the dizzy whiz burger and a double cheeseburger neither were good more accurately not even average. Sadly the prices for the sandwiches was very overpriced. If you want a bad hamburger...
