“Dining is always a pleasure at Vancostas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

Our first visit to Newport News was in August of 2008. We tried a pancake place across the street from our hotel but were disappointed. The next day we tried breakfast at Vancostas located on the hotel's property and loved it. We've been going here ever since. This was our fourth Labor Day weekend trip in Newport News and we were sure to eat at Vancostas again. All meals come with a generous helping of steak fries. The owner/operator family is extremely nice and friendly with us as are the staff. The clientelle are locals who've been eating there for decades as well as families on vacation. The food is great as is the value for what you pay. The rest rooms are clean.

“Good food at great prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

Nothing fancy, but good food at great prices.

They served great pizza, the subs are wonderful, and they make a great spaghetti sauce, and good nightly specials. Portions are large and more than reasonable prices.

Also.....Try their breakfast. It is great! Again, nothing fancy, just good breakfast food at prices that are unbelieveable. I honestly don't know how they sell their food as cheap as they do.

The servers are fast, efficient, and pleasant.

“Good food, great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2011

Decided to give this little diner a shot. I figured it couldn't be any worse than my last experience with a dining establishment on Warwick. Had a pizza cooked crispy, with everything they offered on it. It was quite tasty, crunchy, with just the right spice on it.
I was quite satisfied. They serve breakfast all day.

“Family Owned, yet bland.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

The family and staff are great people. That does not make up for food. I was really craving Saganaki. This affected my view. The gyro sauce tastes like it is premade. I was unimpressed with my entree and will not be returning.

“Get in Here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2010

Hey, if you love good food but hate spending lots of money then go to Vancostas. You and your wallet will be happy. I had a chicken sub and fries for under $6.00 and it was so good. The people are friendly and the food is wonderful so what are you waiting for, go eat!
