We should have shared! I ordered the mushroom swiss burger and it was huge and the fries were gigantic! My wife had the french dip and onion rings, both were really good. Shakes were ok but nothing fantastic.

Onion rings good but expensive. Hamburgers okay but overpriced and missing the bacon it used to have on Wimpy's burger. Not impressed. Used to like this place but new ownership hasn't proven a good change. Will not return and will not recommend.

If you are in Vernal and need a fix for a shake, or something deep fried, and don't want to waste your money at McDonald's then this place will do just fine. I recommend the Oreo shake.

The burger will take a long time to make, and you will pay 10 bucks for food worth 5. But, it was delicious. They even have Diet Coke, which is hard to find in Vernal.
