A store front plaza setting with great food. This place is always busy on a Friday and people love to go there for lunch on any day of the week. Big portions! Friendly staff!

Not a huge fan especially since it was hyped up. I went for breakfast but the food wasn't very good. The place was dead but I hardly saw our waitress.

Ate at Wimpy's for the first time today. Told them I would gladly have a hamburger if I could pay for it Tuesday... That didn't work but I still ordered the Famous Burger. 10 ozs but nothing special. Somewhat dry. Much better places in Barrie for Burgers. My partner had Eggs Bennie which looked delicious and which she orders all... More

I come here all the time. Diner style menu, without being greasy. It's unusual not to eat soon after you sit down, even when it's so busy people are waiting for a table. It's nice to be remembered and have friendly conversation without the servers hovering or being annoying, the staff here are genuine and will go out of their... More

While I don't expect much in terms of service from a diner, I have eaten at other Wimpy's in the past and had better luck. Our young waitress was pleasant and friendly, but could have been a bit more attentive. She seemed more focused on cleaning silverware. For a 50's diner theme, you would expect those cheesy napkin holders on... More

In Barrie for Canada day weekend and after reading favourable reviews thought we would give Wimpys a try. Good menu and was spoiled for choice. Had the haddock and chips .. It was really tasty! Would definitely return again, excellent value for money and the service was really good.
