I have not been here for 20 years, but recently stopped for a calorie inducing meal during a brief stop in the Peg. Great tasting burger, hot dog, and fries. Definitely worth the stop. Just wish they would allow an order for some chili sauce on the fries.

We have been visiting VJ's for 25+ years... even though we moved from Winnipeg 15 years ago, every time we are back for a visit, we make our pilgrimage to VJs. The "special" is EPIC...I can't even do it justice with words... trust me, go eat there and you'll understand. Remember, its a drive in, so be prepared to grab... More

Winnipeg has changed a lot over the years, however VJ's still serves the best fast food in town. I have been patronizing this place when it was called Juniors 45 years ago. This is Greek cuisine at its best. The "special" has chilli, cheese lettuce tomato and secret sauce from an old traditional recipe. The fries are home made the... More

VJ's offers the best burgers, dogs & fries you will ever find in a classic shack style eatery. Topped with delicious chili, onions and real pickle spears, every bite leaves you looking forward to the next. I like my natural cut fries well done and presented in a box so adding the salt & vinegar is easy and eating less... More

I love going to VJ'S DRIVE INN. They have one of the best hamburgers and the best home French fries. The people are very friendly and the cost is reasonable. I would recommend this drive inn.

From the tables outside, to the screen doors granting you access to this amazing joint. Vj's Drive Inn is by far one of the best places to get a burger, fries and shake. Would run to Vj's on my break just to have a fat boy. I hope 10 years from now I can still go get a Fat boy... More

You have to get the burger and get them to put their chilli in there. It is not chunky at all, but a runnier sauce, so it's not super heavy. They use a flat top grill to cook their burgers which gives it an amazing crust. Their fries are also made to order and everything is fresh.
