VJ's is a Winnipeg icon and as such trying to separate the elements of food, service, venue and price is pretty useless. This is VJ's that we've always known and loved, this is the way it is and this is the way it should be. If they clean the place up, offer somewhere decent to sit and partake of your... More

We were at VJ's Drive Inn on a Sunday night in August. This was my 1st time at this little take out restaurant. I was rather disappointed with my meal. Not only was it expensive, but my burger was like a black puck. I also found the little hallway you go in to give your order quite dirty. I left... More

With the many great reviews, we decided to give VJ's a try. I was even more impressed than I thought I would be. The staff were very pleasant and we ordered the VJ special each, small fries and a strawberry shake to share. While we were waiting you could see a fellow in the back making patties with an ice...

Thyis is a classic hamburger stand from the 50's. It is somewhat ramshackle in appearance but OMG the food is out of this world. The hamburgers/cheeseburgers are to die for and the fries...well let's just say I don't care if I get a heart attack! They are amazing and definitely worth every penny. If only they had an indoor sit... More

I used to visit this place a lot. I used to weigh a lot. Now I weigh a lot less and don't visit as often. However, I had a strong urge the other day for a cheese dog and drove on down. Boy, was I glad I went! Instead of a 'dog, fries in a box and soda pop (like... More
