Lots of people rave about this place. But I just didn't enjoy the food that much. I don't know if it was an off day or what, but I didn't even want to finish the fries. I just don't see the appeal.

Truly a little hole in the wall drive in or walk up, but great burgers and fries. Hand made, fried on a big grill and made how you like it. Bring an appetite, two hands to hold on, and lots of napkins. Definitely a great little spot. Price is great too.

Gave this place a whirl and the burger was very filling and delicious!!!! Only thing that bothered me was their attitude when I had the nerve to ask for fried onions. Otherwise can't complain.

When I'm craving a Greek style burger, burgers with a special beef chili sauce, this is the first place that comes to mind. They make my favourite Greek Style Burgers. The hamburger mixture is flavourful. If you want a simple flavoured burger, you might as well go to Mc Donalds or Wendy's. The pickles on these burgers have just the... More

Nothing fancy about this place... much the same in appearance as its been for years. But so is the food... amazingly scrumptious burgers with that tangy sauce. You either like this type of burger or you don't. Fries are homemade.. you salt em and vinegar them up... have to decide if you want them in a bag or box. Staff... More

I have my favorite fast food places to stop when I get to the city. VJ's is always on the top of my list. The fries topped with a generous amount of vinegar and salt is not good for the heart but is for your taste buds. The burgers are equally delicious.

My favorite take out burger joint, has been around for years, won awards and lives up to the hype! Great location

V.J.'s has the BEST burgers in Winnipeg. I have been going there for years. I even had a burger today. Always fresh & tasty. Every time my brother comes in from Calgary, he makes sure he goes there for the burger & fries. He wishes they had burgers like that in Calgary, but hasn't found a place that compares to... More

If you are looking for a burger that will run down your hands, make a mess of your face and taste absolutely incredible with fresh tasty ingredients go for a VJ special. You won't regret it. It is what a drive in is meant to be.

This place is a long standing restaurant in Winnipeg. It’s a no fuss business where you line up and they take your order. I've only had their burger and fries but others tell me the milkshakes are really good too. They give you a huge amount of fries that can be shared with another person. The VJ special has all...
