A popular Oakville restaurant known for its comfort food and warm atmosphere has permanently closed down.

Wimpy’s Diner, a 50’s and 60’s style eatery located in the Oakville Commons Plaza on Kerr St. has turned off its grills and closed its doors.

The Oakville location had been around since the late 1990’s and the restaurant chain has over 50 locations in Ontario, according to its website.

The menu provided a variety of tasty grub, from their “famous hamburgers” to their all day breakfast and comforting home style dinners.

The local diner had four out of five stars with 249 reviews on Google.

“The owners are the nicest people you will meet,” said one review from Daisy Holiday that gave them a five out of five stars. “They refill your coffee without you needing to ask, the food is always fresh and warm and prepared in a speedy manner.

“The portion is always huge and the Monte Cristo sandwich and milkshake are especially amazing.”

The diner will be clearly missed.

“Quintessential diner,” Timothy Strange said in a review. “Exactly what you’re looking for when you think of a 50s inspired diner. Wait staff was friendly and on top of things. Food was perfect.

“I hope this place stays open forever.”

Sadly, that won’t be the case.
