Found this restaurant. Went in for breakfast. Took eggs, bacon, potatoes. The potatoes I do not like. Tasted boring. They need to either change the kind of potatoes they serve or do something with what they are serving now. Was my first time here since I was going thru town.

This is a typical breakfast spot and usually extremely busy. Food is okay, but pretty greasy. Everything just looks a little worn out. Menus are dirty etc. not quite sure why it's as busy as it is other than there are not a lot of breakfast spots around. Food is edible but ......

Went for lunch and had to listen to the owner yelling into the phone at someone and then listen to him loudly complain to his staff about the whole situation, which lasted almost my entire meal. Food was okay but won't be back. there's lots of places to get lunch when you order bacon, eggs and toast.

I have only been to wimpys for breakfast. A couple of times in the past week with two different groups. The second time ,which was today, our waitress seemed to have other things on her mind. Didn't really seem to want to serve us. Shouldn't have to wave across restaurant to get her attention. Blond a d dark hair. Breakfast... More

For the most part, so long as you can get decent bacon & eggs, a diner is a diner but the staff here make this Wimpy's kinda special. A special shout out to Valerie & Rose, who can make you feel like you're having a conversation with them all the way through your meal, while they are at the same... More

Delicious diner-style food served by passionate and superior servers! This quaint place has a hearty menu that you would expect in any diner. Except, they elevate it to the delicious zone. The servers, who all have been there many years, know the regulars and serve them to perfection. A godsend for someone that wishes for a bit of a throwback... More

Went for breakfast on a weekday. We weren't told there was any specials so we spent 26 bucks on breakfast for 2. We just got a bacon/eggs/toast kinda thing. I did get a milkshake which was pretty good. Service was a tad slow, and waitress seemed to focus on "regulars". We can get similar items at a&w for much less.

I must be looking for punishment. Went back today and was even more dissapointed. Figured to go give another chance and not sure if that was a good idea. Went with 3 other girlfriends after a good shopping day. The lady cook in the back didn't seem to care about her appearance even though she was cooking. No uniforms? In... More
