Wimpy's Original

1015 North Providence Road
Media, PA 19063
(610) 565-3910

Wimpy's is a spot I had never heard about until some coworkers suggested it for lunch one day. They specialize in burgers, but have a variety of other items.

You can eat inside, or sit outside if its nice out. It's a pretty sweet setup for summer lunches.

The buffalo chicken french fries sounded too interesting to pass up. They came out with sliced buffalo chicken fingers, diced celery, and blue cheese dressing all piled on top of fries. The sauce was quite tasty, and I had never seen this interesting take on fries. This entire meal was calorie overload, present company not excluded.

I also tried the Volcano burger, which came with hot sauce, pepper jack cheese, Wimpy WAM! Spice and jalapeno poppers on a bed of lettuce. Jalapeno poppers on a burger sounded interesting, so I gave it a try.

Unfortunately the food took so long to come out (45 minutes) that my poppers were no longer "popping" but were instead "congealed." There was a lot going on with this burger, but overall it was pretty tasty.

The Cowboy Burger is a bacon cheeseburger, with an onion ring, barbeque sauce, cheddar, sad translucent tomatoes (come on, its summer!), and shredded lettuce.

This one is also a tasty burger, reminiscent of the Rodeo Burger, my high school favorite.

All in all, Wimpy's is pretty tasty, but the service was lackluster. I would go back if I were in the area, craving a burger, and wanted a change of pace from Five Guys.
