we had been in Paso for days and eating wonderful, rich food three times a day. We just wanted some good, uncomplicated food and we found it plus a smiling waitress and a wonderful chocolate milkshake

We stumbled upon this place while on vacation and were pleasantly surprised. The coffee was good, the food was tasty, and the service was great! I would go back next time we are in the area.

Perfect breakfast place, where the locals go. Very casually, comfortable. Right downtown. Classic American food. Good portions, good price. Wait staff very pleasant, best French toast ever, really!

I love this place. Everybody loves it there, it's such a nice atmosphere! I've been going since I was little and still love it. I highly recommend the cowboy Benedict, or anything with their gravy on it! Yum.

Old fashioned, American comfort food kind of place. I had the hot turkey sandwich which was good, but rather salty. Large portion. My husband had an ok patty melt with potato salad he couldn't eat. He didn't like it at all. The coffee was also very blah. Cookies were over-baked. Wouldn't recommend the place. Very cheap if you are on... More

We had breakfast at Vic's this past Sunday around 11:00 am. There was a line out the front and we thought we were in for a wait, but within 5 minutes we were seated in a booth. The hostess was super and our waitress was a true diner professional. She brought hot fresh coffee right away and when I asked... More

this was almost a four star but the coffee was just really marginal. Good portions, great staff, but the food was a touch greasy and uninspired. The best bet was the cinnamon French toast.

We went to eat at Vic's because of the high reviews on Yelp. The place was pretty crowded for a Sunday morning. We decided to sit at the counter to avoid having to wait 20 mins. The counter is very uncomfortable to sit at. Tight and low chairs. No place to put your purse was complained about by my gf.... More
