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?
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.
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 www.wimpysdiner.net you can see a picture of their burger and other menu offerings there.
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.
