Great Family Restaurant

Great owner, great waitresses, great cooks! What more is there to say? You walk in and you are treated as family. We go all the time for breakfast or lunch.

Breakfast is very good. Service is great. Prices are great. Viking Chili Bowl is only open for breakfast and lunch. The serve breakfast all during this time, which is great for those of us that decide later in the morning to go out for breakfast. They will even substitute fresh fruit for your hash browns. Most restaurants won't do this.... More

We have eaten at this restaurant twice and found it to be just fine; food was good, and our servers were friendly and personable.

Food was excellent. Servers were courteous and prompt. We have eaten there many times. The atmosphere is cheerful and interesting. And the prices are comparable to similar places.

As far as greasy spoons go, this one is the worst we have ever encountered. Bad food, tacky atmosphere, marginally bad service. Don't go here...there are many great breakfast places to go in valpo but this isn't one.

To be fair, we already had low expectations with this being a greasy-spoon diner but it was worse than that. Food was bad, hostess was hostile, dishware was in poor condition and dirty, and, did I say food was bad? For all you Valpo people who enjoy the nostalgia of having gone here when you were kids, I have news... More

Great breakfast fast service and the price is right. Also serves lunch but not dinner. Check out the breakfast you won't be disappointed.

Ohhh yes, if you want to start the day off right, here's the place to set your sights on! They're only open for breakfast and lunch, so that only leaves you with trying to figure out what's for lunch, cause Viking has breakfast covered! Whether you want an outstanding country fried steak, or biscuits and gravy you can't go wrong.... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time on Sunday after Church. Got there about 12:30 p.m., which was about the end of the breakfast/lunch rush. Got seated right away. The service was excellent. The food was good. Served piping hot. Fresh, too. The ambiance is OK. It's clean. Price is very reasonable. They have daily specials, too.

My husband grew-up in Valpo and we went here the first time we visited his parents. I make my husband take me here every time we visit (often more than once). It might not look like much from the outside but I have never been disappointed by the food. I love breakfast here.
