Best Burger in Town - No Comparison!

A longtime Winnipeg staple. If you are simply looking for the best homemade burger and fries in town you do not have to go any further.

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.

VJ's is an institution in this city. Great burgers if you like chili and don't mind the mess. Their fries and chili are also very good.
