Great hot dogs and fries. (I understand the burgers are good also). If the lot is full, you can park across the street in the office building parking lot as long as it is weekends or after office hours. The people who take the orders are amazing. They take 5 or 6 at a time and don't write anything down.... More

The Winnipeg Fatboy is a greek styled burger which has chili. The chili is more like a meatsauce and usually comes with mayo, lettuce tomato, pickle and cheese. The fatboy burger is served in many Winnipeg mom and pop burger joints, with George's burgers being one of the franchises in the city. VJ's has their version of the fatboy and... More

Typical comfort food including hamburgers, hot dogs, fries with chili being added to the burgers and dogs. if you wish. Large helpings. Outdoors for customers but they have a few tables available. Not for those on a diet but food tastes good although somewhat greasy.

With a doubt VJs has the best fries in Winnipeg, beating Juniors, Georges, and all other restaurants.

VJs is one of those places where you look at it and think...im never going to eat there, it looks horrible. It does, it looks terrible from the outside. But the food itself is an entirely different manner I LOVED my hamburger and chips from there. Those chips were probably the closest thing to Scottish chips that I know...and you... More

The atmosphere is not great as it is basically a pick up burger joint, but having said that there are a few picnic tables outside in the parking lot along side the building that one can sit at. the only problem is cars coming and going and people coming and going so it is not a great place to sit....

Walked over to VJ's from the Fort Garry Hotel. Had a burger, fries and a milkshake. Simply delicious. Many different milkshake flavours to choose from, which made it difficult. A very small menu which I like because to me, this means everything is done well. Counter staff and people cooking were very friendly, you can see everything while standing in... More
