Definitely yes. A burger restaurant called Wimpy's Grill first opened in Chicago in 1934, when Popeye was a national sensation and there would have been no question in anyone's mind who "Wimpy" was. The proprietor of Wimpy's Grill then licensed the name to the UK chain...which was a neat trick considering he never got permission from E.C. Segar or King Features to use the name himself!
The hilight of a saturdayAfternoon if you were good. A wimpy and chips followed by a knickerbocker glory!
Cheers Richard, that's settled it. Its a shame really because Wimpy were the first Burger bar on the scene in the UK and they just never made the most of that advantage, I woulnd,'t know where the nearest one to me is now if any at all.And yes Tony, a meal for a King! Knickerbocker Glory, now that's a dessert!
