Good for breakfast. Stopped here on our visit wineries of Paso Robles. Nothing special about the food (at breakfast time), just very decent and honest. But the atmosphere and décor are awesome. We have visitors from other country with us, so it was a great presentation of American old style diner with huge meal portions served and locals around. We... More

Vics Café is a great place for locals, and a restaurant visitors also shouldn't miss. This was my 2nd visit and there will be more. Last night I had their Salmon special and it was delicious. It has a very relaxed, casual feel, almost like a diner. But don't let the ambiance fool you, the food is very good and... More

This is a long time staple in Paso and we go reasonably often. Breakfast is good...it's a tad pricier than other places but location probably is the reason. It's walking distance to all of downtown. Servers are fun and efficient. We like it!

Vic's has been a feature on 13th in downtown Paso ever since I can remember. It used to be a couple doors down form present location, the earthquake forced the move I guess. Yes, locals eat here regularly. The waiters and waitresses know your name after a few times. Show up enough they know your regular order also. That kind... More

We stopped in for dinner, not knowing what to expect, and came out feeling stuffed! Vic's was hands down delicious. I had the open faced beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. My friend had the California burger and fries. We had to get a container to take half with us! It was so yummy, we couldn't leave it behind.... More

My wife and I wanted to grab some lunch while visiting Paso and we passed this place while walking about town. The locals like to come here and it is definitely nothing fancy. The food is very good overall and they portions plentiful. We had a new server who was not as familiar with the menu items as she should... More

Want a good breakfast anytime of the day? Vic's is the place. I wanted breakfast at mid-day and got it. Nothing fancy but ultra clean with good service, food, and the normal atmosphere we've all come to expect from a locals joint, just comfortable like an old shoe.

French Toast is as simple as possible but absolutely delicious. One of my favorite lunches is the Hot Turkey Sandwich, tender roasted turkey on smothered in delicious turkey gravy server with mashed... More

Trust me...this is a good thing! Tables, booths, counter seats, lots of stuff on the walls, cubby to see into the kitchen, lots of (obviously) regular customers so how could I not scoot over to a recently vacant booth so some tables could be smushed together. Friendly faces, varied menu, and enjoyed my breakfast. My only wish? Prefer my coffee... More
