“Good value, good fries and burgers”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

In Winnipeg, we really like our "home made" (fresh cut potato) fries and you can get them here for cheap in a paper bag. The hamburgers are "home made" as well, which mean you make a patty (they are not frozen pre formed) There is no where to sit, it is all take out but you get your food quickly. They put chilli on their burgers too. It is not a "safe" neighbourhood, but usually it is so busy so you don't have to worry. There is usually room to park in the lot. The food is consistent and a great value. Menu is basically fries, burgers and hot dogs, with drinks/milkshakes.

“Always delicious”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The burgers are so good. The lettus fresh, the chili sauce tasty, the fried onions - perfect, and the staff: always great to see. This place is very busy and we are so lucky to have them here in Wpg! The french frys are home made, and they give a very generous serving! Thanks You V.J.'s. Keep up the great work.

“Great Late Night Burger”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

It's a great place to grab a bite after a long night out celebrating. some nights you may have to wait in line but it's worth it. Be warned they are probably the messiest burger in town.
