A loaded VJ's burger is great and includes Chili on the Burger giving it that added touch. People come here year after year and it is a true Winnipeg experience.

Cash only. Walk-up/drive-up only. A few park benches around the side. Directly across Main Street from the Via Rail train station at Broadway. THE place to fuel up for the long walk home after the pub crawl. Chili dog and fries! double fat-boy with chili and lots of napkins!

I go for the fries..they ask if you want a "bag or box". There is enough to share but I don't. I like the casual atmosphere. It is part of Winnipeg's history.
