They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I am attaching one. This is the second time in a row (last visit was in May) that I've had a half-raw burger. Both me and my coworker had equally undercooked burgers. My coworker called and burgers will be on the house at our next visit. But I don't know... More

This place is truly a staple in Winnipeg. Great burgers that don't disappoint. If you are craving a late night burger this is one of the best.

We had been told by a Winnipegger that the best burgers were from VJ's so we tried it. It has an insiders vibe because the menu is posted but there are no descriptions of the VJ's special and no prices posted. We ordered a VJ's special (it has homemade chili sauce) a cheeseburger, a lemon-lime shake and one order of... More

Seriously Fantastic!!! I was in Winnipeg for business and staying at the Fort Garry Hotel (nearby). I found this place easily during a quick walk one evening. Just based on the outward appearance (a well aged and worn local drive-in) I had to try it. I had two of their "special burgers" and an order of fries ($16.80 CAD). WOW!!!!... More

Tried this place twice this month . The first time I had a cheese burgar and it was excellent. The second time I had a special. Looked and tasted great but a little too messy to eat for me. The fries are the best you will find anywhere.
