I had an art show last night and when I left I was starving so I went to the closest restaurant that was open. I wasn't interested in fine food, just something to fill the gap. I ordered calamari and was very pleased. It was not greasy and the serving was substantial. Service was very good. Some friends were there... More

Was there for breakfast with my wife and adult daughter. We liked everything. It was quick. The staff was friendly. There are a wide range of choices. Our server recommended things that we all liked. Not haute cuisine, but very good for what it is. I was amazed to get good biscuits outside the south - as I always am... More

Great slice of Americana. Vic's is a real homestyle cafe. I had the chorizo scramble with toast and hash browns. Yum!

Homestyle cafe in downtown Paso Robles, has been there for a long time. I had eggs, potatoes,toast & coffee for about $9. Coffee was very good, not the cheap stuff. I thought the price was a little much, considering I had had much the same thing the day before for $6. I liked the country ambiance and friendly staff. If... More

Used to go to Vics weekly. But since his daughter took over the prices went up and the portion size went down. There are a lot of better places in town with better quality for the price. Went with a friend and she wanted to go there.So sorry I did. I order the Chinese chicken salad. Which I always loved... More

We travel between So Cal and Nor Cal fairly often and look for new places to eat each time. This trip we picked Vic's Cafe and boy are we happy we did! The food was excellent and the service was quick and very friendly. There were lots of locals eating there as well, which is always a good sign. We... More

Been around for 40 + years, can't go wrong here. Nothing fancy, a local hangout.

They do a great job with the Liver with onions and bacon, although you have to get a side of bacon as it doesn't come automatically with the dinner. It's REALLY hard to find a restaurant that serves it. This is a family owned, down home, simple food restaurant. It's all basic food and they do a good job with... More
