Just look at this thing.
I wish I could have captured a better idea of the height of this burger–this Burger, a burger at it’s height–it was work to even get it in my mouth. But did it ever!
A double cheeseburger with bacon cooked up fresh at Wimpy’s is priceless. But prices are low. Which, to me, is what a burger is about–thrift and heft. I am tired of so-called gourmet burgers and the ten bucks they end up costing. Rarely are they even that good. Now, this little tower of a sandwich had the taste of good, fresh ground chuck and the bacon was cooked nice and crisp. Next time I might forego the cheese. The beef is just so good and the cheese kind of hides it. Though the option to slap some chili and slaw on it is tempting. For starters I’d recommend keeping it simple. Hamburger, mustard, lettuce, tomato, pickles.
Say what you will about banana pudding, but some of us at Carpe Durham jones for it. So watch it!
The pudding was great and had lots of other stuff in the cup (this is good!). There were distinct layers of vanilla wafers and bananas in the pudding, which itself was definitely banana and not vanilla as it is sometimes. The merengue on top was a nice surprise.
The hours at Wimpy’s are easily the worst trait. Yet, starting my day at 7am with a burger of that caliber could turn me into a super hero. I suspect their biscuits might do the same.
My beastly burger and banana pudding rang me up $8 and would have been a glorious $6 or so without the cheese and bacon indulgences. Pay them a visit 7am-2pm Monday-Friday. Cash only.
