Its funny because when anyone initially thinks of wimpy your first impression is that its the failed fast food take away store that used to rival mcdonalds and yet in no means can it do so nowadays, however through personal reviews and experiences there people love wimpy and I am for sure one of those people.
Perhaps like for others wimpy is an incredibly nostalgic setting for me, as I used to go as a child and I remember so clearly the wimpy birthday parties that I used to go to and mr wimpy coming out with his bucket of badges. I used to absolutely love them and again going for a lunch with my family and being thrilled at the thought of the fast food but being delivered on a plate.
Nowadays all fast food is shunned and of course it should be, full of fat, grease, and processed food that is only bad for our bodies and souls, however there is just something quite endeering and old fashioned almost about wimpy, which cant be replaced and hence its somewhere we go to on occassion usually if we are travelling and its easy and ok to eat in.
I have never been treated badly in a wimpy restaurant and always had brilliant customer service so this is a plus in my books, of course its no ritz but its not meant to be so. I have fond memories of this restaurant when my aunt took me there to cheer me up as my grandfather was being treated at home whilst he was living his final days. I was a child and needed a comfort and for me at such a young age to have a treat of burger and chips was something great and hence I have fond memories ever since.
The food is reasonably priced and has a variety of options from burgers, all day breakfasts, fish, scampi and even steak. Of course classic chips and jacket potatoes are serviced but you can sit with your mum and eat a tea cake and a cup of tea if you wish, which is again a nice memory of childhood whilst a child sits eating their burger and chips. They do pretty good deals also such as toasted sandwiches and a tea for a cheap price or teacakes and meal deals.
Ok yes its bad food, its a fast food sit in and take away, but as one offs and a little treat for your little one or whilst travelling this is a nice place to go, and it shouldnt be downgraded below mcdonalds as its far nicer and great customer service.
Summary: The nostalgic restaurant to bring a smile to your face
