The prices have gone up a bit, but always delicious. The fatboys are amazing, milkshakes are creamy - perfect summer spot

It´s a good place to eat, but the meat was too compressed and not juicy. I would reccomend it, but I will not return to eat there.

So we had to try it out, and we now know why this fast food stop is so highly recommended. The lady who served us was delightful (Michelle I think), friendly and helpful. The portions were absolutely huge,... More

Just went for a milkshake and wasn't disappointed. Flavourful strawberry. Well done. The place is like an over sized food truck and food looked plain but good.

VJ's has been around forever, and with good reason. They are consistent, fast and friendly no matter what time of day you visit them. Lunch, afternoon snack, dinner or bar crawl for something yummy they are always happy to see you. Add an order of fries to your meal and you can feed your crew due to their generous portions.
