This is an annual Summer tradition for hubby and I. Having lunch at VJ's. This is a great take out and eat Al Fresco Restaurant which serves up the best Burgers and Fries. Speaking of fries, there is always enough in one order to share. The staff are friendly and waste no time in getting your order ready. There are... More

My husband and I order one VJ's Special (loaded burger) and one order of fries to share. The two of us can JUST finish this for dinner. So good!

VJ's is an institution in this city. Great burgers if you like chili and don't mind the mess. Their fries and chili are also very good.

The best value for your money. Food is always cooked fresh, and service is fast. Better value than going to one of the OTHER fast food outlets. REAL meat and FF. One order of FF is enough for 2 people. Sitting outside, eating your lunch, is a bonus.

I've enjoyed the food from VJ's Drive Inn for many years. Their fries are fresh and fantastic. The combination of a VJ's Special with fries and a chocolate shake will take care of almost any appetite!

This is just one of the little hole-in-the-wall type burger stands, not an upscale restaurant, but for what it is, it is one of the best ever !! The food's great, the prices are reasonable. If you just want a quick stop for a burger & fries, this is the place !!
