My husband and I have been here several times and each has been terrific. The food is always great and consistent. Also the service is always terrific. Their location is wonderful as it's in downtown Paso Robles, near the square and movie theater.

Little country diner - with a 50's vibe - great for locals and visitors alike. Biscuits and Gravy or Huevos Rancheros - it's all good. Homemade soups and pies.

My favorite is always the trout and eggs for breakfast. Breakfast is always good here! Definably a small town family and friend gathering spot.

We ate an early dinner here. We love diners but only the authentic ones. Vic's has been open for several years. They have excellent chicken fried steak with the old fashioned white country gravy. The smoked beef ribs were incredible and cost half of the the price at the steak houses. The servers were all so friendly and efficient. No... More

One of our favorite places for Sunday breakfast. Great omelette with all the Goodies. Typical truck driver type restaurant...and good at that.

Love this place for breakfast. Country charm restaurant that offers great breakfast options at a good value. The standout though are their pancakes. Top notch, fluffy, flavorful and makes your mouth water thinking of them. Service is great, friendly, quick. Always a favorite to visit when in town.

Old fashioned cafe with good food at a very fair price. We had a late lunch and the place was still packed, we took the last open table. Quick service and good food. Many of the people were locals, which is great! It is a neighborhood hang out!!

Had breakfast one morning with a party of nine. They were very accommodating with a large walk-in group. Food and service quite good. Not your resort type foo- foo food or atmosphere but, just good all-American food. I would recommend the home-made corned beef hash.
