If you want a great burger and fries this place cannot be beat. Delicious and made to order. The seating area is relatively small. Pepsi products sold here. Will be back next I'm in this area.

Love to stop here for a burger and a shake. My favorite is the plain Wimpy Burger. It's just that good it doesn't need gimmicks. Parking can be rough if the small lot is parked up, but worth the trouble.

This is a great little local place for burgers to go, You can eat-in, too, but it is very small there. They are fast & usually friendly. They have great milk shakes, too!

Went to Wimpys for a burger...the patty although a very good quality was extremely salty..and pretty rare. I guess the grill guy had some important business to tend to on his cell phone...hence the quick cook time. I was asked if everything was ok...I told the guy no... Burger was raw...and far to salty...he asked if I wanted another burger... More

I'm sorry that your experience was less then satisfactory. Certainly, that is not our goal. I'm sorry too that I am just getting this now or I would have responded sooner. I'm also concerned about the saltiness since we use very little in our burger spice recipe. I would be happy to offer you a replacement burger. I cannot explain... More

Wimpy's is a very small, take-out oriented (but available seating) hamburger joint that is open every day. Burgers are fresh, tasty, cooked properly, and available with lots of different toppings and sauces. Onion rings are excellent, fries are good. Prices are great, and staff are friendly and accommodating. Best place to satisfy a hamburger craving. No chi-chi funkyburgers, just the... More

Amazing choices and options, you can truly have it your way, and not just burgers, but good cheesesteaks, hot dogs, onion rings are awesome and my favorite is the Cowboy Burger. And, they provide great milkshakes made to order.

London prices for very poor food. A thin slice of bacon £1 and impossible to cut. £2 for some poorly cooked chips. Sausage supposedly grilled almost raw. Grilled tomato was just two very thin slices of cold tomato. Will not be going there again. No wonder only six customers at 1.30 pm. Coffee was OK.

Love the sandwiches, home made chips, and great service. Always introducing new types of burgers, and new spins on the ordinary sandwich. Also hand made shakes, and the home made chips are the best!

Whenever my wife wants a "really good burger" we know where to go. The fries & milkshakes are also very good. The onion rings are battered, not breaded like most fast food restaurants. Best in Delco!
