We spent the weekend in Lexington, Michigan arriving by boat Friday afternoon. We were planning returning home Sunday but high winds caused 8 - 9 foot waves on Lake Huron, way to big for our boat to handle so we stayed until Monday. Lexington is a small village, very much tourist based with most activity weekends and very quiet on weekdays. There is a range of restaurants including two fast food restaurants catering to the tourists who mainly arrive by boat.
We went to Wimpy's for dinner. Wimpy's is named after Wimpy on the PopThey have a reputation of having the best burgers in town. We ordered Wimpy's burgers and onion rings. The onion rings were quite good!
My husband liked the burgers. They are quite similar to White Castle burgers but a bit more on the greasier side. I wan't impressed with the burgers but in fairness I was dealing with a severe allergic reaction to the medication I was taking for an infection so that affected my stomach. I'll try them again next trip just to see if not feeling well clouded my judgement.
These burgers would be extremely easy to duplicate at home on a griddle or even fry pan. I watched her making the patties. She rolled the ground beef into about 2 - inch balls then placed the ball on the grill (flat restaurant style) and flatten it with a flipper. The result is a oddly shaped, thin pattie. Onions if desired, fry along with the pattie adding extra flavour. The pattie is placed on a smallish bun then simply served with the minimum of condiments.
