Wimpy's Burger - Any good?

Hi All,
I just found out that there will be a Wimpy's Burger opening up near my work and I wanted to know a little more about it. I couldn't find their website. Anyways, is it any good? Can any of you tell me about the menu?

  1. NO!!! they are horrible burgers... Not a bad greasy spoon breakfast though..

    1. For a well done, frozen, prefab burger, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting.... I was able to eat it. Barely. However, their chocolate shake was memorable as the absolute worst such drink I have ever been served. I did not succeed at drinking it.

        Try the shake at Hero Burger.


      2. My husband and I tried the burger combo last year (Pickering location) and I have to say, it was ok at best. The burger was super greasy and arrived with just a layer of grease on top. The fries were good ... onion rings were too thickly battered (I think they were frozen) and the relish was "very" watery. We were searching for the best burger (and have tried everywhere, even across the border), but we have not been back to Wimpy's.

        You should be able to find their menu on their website.

        Perhaps give it a try as everyone's taste and expectations are different, but I've had better burgers elsewhere.

        1. The hamburgers at Wimpy's are very thin and I find them to be quite dry. They are huge...they hang over the bun. Not a great burger as I prefer mine to be thicker and juicy. The all day breakfast that they offer isn't bad though.

          The website is you can see a picture of their burger and other menu offerings there.

            The painted on grillmarks and the grease slick look pretty realistic...

          2. I just came back from having dinner with a friend at the Wimpy's on St. Clair East in Scarborough. I didn't know what to expect, but came away pleasantly surprised. The meals, while nothing special, were quite tasty and served in an interesting 50's diner atmosphere at reasonable prices. The dinner specials running $6 to $9 were a deal.

            It's the type of place kids would love.

              My guess is the St Clair location is the original and all the others are badly copied franchises. I've enjoyed eating here, but I won't go to any of the other locations again.

                i second the breakfast at wimpy's. not fancy or healthfull but oh so great when you're nursing a bad hangover.
                i don't know if they still have them, but they used to have a breakfast danish on the menu. not the pastry kind.....the fried bun with icing kind.
