Whitey's is a wonderful burger and beer joint! I grew up eating there, and it still as wonderful as it was 20 years ago. Their chili is famous, their bar offers local microbrews, and the BURGERS! They are huge and delicious. Also worth mentioning are the brown crispy fries, brought out early in a little boat for the table to share.
Whitey's often is VERY crowded in the evenings, especially on summer nights. As such, the wait can be long, and they do not offer reservations. People are expected to wait in the bar, which can get very smokey, a drawback if you have small children.
The service can be lacking on busy nights, but you do get the sense that the waitresses are working their butts off, and they are just a bit understaffed sometimes, so I try to always tip a bit more.
One thing worth mentioning is that they do not take credit or debit cards. They do have an ATM located inside, but you have to pay by cash at the bar after you dine.
