Wimpy's Burger Basket is a restaurant located on Buffalo Road in Gates next to The Garden Factory in the former Dunkin' Donuts building. They had another location Greece, NY, which closed in 2021.

Notably, they used to serve an ice cream garbage plate, which consisted of six scoops of ice cream, three toppings, three "treats", whipped cream, and cherries. Tragically, they stopped offering it in early Fall 2010.

I asked what they specialized in and the hostess said "the burger is good." Well, it wasn't. My burger was undercooked and very pink. The fries were undercooked. The staff wasn't friendly and I just had a bad experience. I won't be returning to this place. —JJohnson

Dry, overcooked burgers. Too skimpy on the hot sauce. Rubbery, bland potatoes. The worst thing was the beans. They were stone cold and bland. —SavageHenry

Service could definitely be improved but on par for what you would expect from a bunch of high schoolers working there. Never had to wait long for the food to be prepared..but next time I get a burger & fries craving I would probably save the $$ and just go to mcdonalds instead. —JaimeTe

2011-02-21 14:03:13   My favorite place for plates as well, but have found that the food quality slips when they are busy. —WestSideB

2012-04-16 18:00:33   We went there 1st time 2007 years ago with a coupon. Gave it to cashier and "cook" said coupon was for $1.00 off second meny item. I said that the coupon says "buy one get one free". He said only good for a dollar. The young cashier said to him "YOU made up the coupon YOU have to honor your own coupon!" So he said okay but he was ticked off real mad. Decided to give them a second chance 5 years later. Went there in March 2012. Had a coupoin for 20% off total purchase. We ordered 2 fish fries. The "cook" said I could only use it on 1 fish fry. So I pulled out another coupon and made 2 separate orders of 1 fish fry -20% each(1 with fries and beans,1 with fries and slaw). We did 2 separate orders with 20% off each one. The "cook" was real upset. When we got out fish fries. He had put about 6 french fries in each and half the amount of beans(freezing cold) and just a tablespoon of cole slaw in the other. LAST TIME I EVER GO THERE. After 5 years they are still the cheap same people who make up coupons and don't want to fulfill them. Tried to give them a second chance but they are ridiculous. Maybe Quaker State and Jeremiah's moving in will take away their customers and they will have to close up because they renig on their coupons and then shortchange your food order because you are handicapped and using a coupon and they think you are stealing fron them when you use a coupon. —AfrodInk

2012-06-26 09:22:29   I been here a few times. The food is good. I have notice when it is busy the food isn't the same as when it is not as busy (as mention by WestSideB). I will go again if I am in the area, as I try to support the smaller guys. —bonnev659
