“outstanding burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, malts, and shakes”
Review of Wimpy's Paradise

Wimpy's Paradise
Ranked #55 of 701 Restaurants in Chandler
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 February 2016

This little Mom and Pop, owner-operated restaurant won many different Best of Phoenix, Best of the East Valley awards last year and in 2014. Its owner, Randy L. Walters, makes it a point to personally greet and serve his customers. He is constantly coming up with new variations of burgers and hot dogs. They are far from ordinary. With the spike in temperature this week in Chandler, customers have been coming in droves for his Thrifty ice cream cones, sundaes, malts and shakes. You can even get an old-fashioned root beer float. I have never had a meal from Wimpy's Paradise which was anything short of outstanding. The excellent food, combined with the very homelike atmosphere, make for a memorable experience and creates many longtime, repeat customers.

I had the award winning Pittsburgher dog today and it was outstanding. Coupled with a half order of spicy home fries, shared with my partner, and we were delighted. We know we can feel assured that we will be served food of the same quality every time we go there, and that is very important to us. Kind of like going to Mom's house for dinner.

You can get great hamburgers, hot dogs chipped and ham sandwich. Always get a hug from Randy. Staff is very attentive to customer's needs.

Wimpy's Paradise's owner and host, Randy Walters' Pittsburgher hot dog was voted Best Hot Dog in the New Times' Best of Phoenix, 2015. His Challenge Burger was voted #1 by Phoenix Magazine in a quadrathon. East Valley Tribune rated his Macaroni and Cheese Best of Phoenix, 2015.

Congratulations to Randy Walters for receiving these great awards. Good luck with the AZ Central Best of Phoenix, 2015 awards, which is accepting votes from the public Oct. 11-25, 2015. ALL of his entrees are outstanding and are created from the highest quality ingredients available. Check out his ingenious menu of some of the most mouth-watering entrees on Earth. I am becoming like Pavlov's dog. I begin to salivate when I get near Arizona Avenue and Boston Street.

I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I first tasted the Pittsburgher. I'd never tasted anything like it before. The chipped ham takes this 'dog way over the top of any hot dog on planet Earth. New Times awarded it their Best of Phoenix hot dog last month. This gem is sold only at Wimpy's Paradise in downtown Chandler, which is home now to its sister restaurant, PIttsburgh Willy's. The store also sells outstanding burgers, plus ice cream, shakes, sundaes and malted milk. Randy Walters, the restaurants' owner, was on live TV this morning to showcase his award winning entrees. His vivaciousness makes his restaurant a destination, not your run of the mill, mom and pop burger and 'dog shop.
