This is my very favourite burger place. It's a take- out place and we drive across town to pick up their food! The burgers are delicious . I always have the double VJ special- loaded . The fries are great and the portions are huge. My order is always double wrapped so that it will still be warm when I... More

Need to get with the times and offer a veggie burger or something. How can you be located downtown and offer nothing but fries for vegetarians.

Love the juicy burgers! Despite the spartan seats, the food taste and size of the serving od the fries made the trip all worthwhile. We were lucky the place wasnt filled but still a small queue formed, and it was late afternoon. If you are into eating at holes in the wall, well this is definitely worth a visit anytime.... More

They have been doing this for a long time and it shows. Never had a better, faster, or tastier burger. The VJ's special is legendary. Only outdoor seating so takeout is really popular.

Greasy food at it's finest. I've been going here most of my life off and on Dietary restrictions now limit my visits but I sneak over there once in a while. Nothing fancy just a line up at a take away window and a few picnic tables out back with a small parking area along side but some of the... More

If you want some greasy food it's the food you want. But I love that greasy food. I love their fries. It's great.

I have patronized this place since its opening ?50 years ago! These folks have hung on to their recipe for the finest hot dog experience anywhere in the world. Weiners…perfect. Pickles, mustard etc…fab. Greek sauce…out of the park. No visitor should leave Winnipeg without sampling this gem…a short walk from the new Human Rights Museum. Take out only.
