My husband and I went to Vic's last night for dinner and it was very good. I had the chicken fried steak and he had the pork chop special, we cleaned our plates. The steak was grilled ( no breading) with a tasty gravy, homemade mashed potatoes and baby carrots. The pork chops were very tender, they had been brined, not especially thick but sure were tasty. Dinner came with soup or salad, the salad was nice. Not gourmet food but just good food and the price for the two dinners was $29. Service was very good and the place was clean. Will go back again for sure when we want good food at a good price.

Stopped here on drive to Los Angeles for breakfast. Sat at the counter with my grandson. He ordered linguisa and eggs, I got an enchilada omelette. The food was good, we received it promptly, and the servers were attentive and friendly. There were mostly locals having breakfast.

I would return if in the area.

I had the salmon entree almost a week ago and the fish was barely warm and the center of the filet was not fully cooked. I thought of sending it back to the kitchen but I don't go to restaurants to tell cooks how to cook.
I've had this dish before, without it being cooked improperly.
There is no excuse for serving undercooked food, especially animal products that can transmit illnesses.

It is a favorite for all the local residents. The Mac and Cheese is to die for. Just like Mom use to cook.

Support Local! It is places like Vic's that are reminiscent of the "good ol' days" when little homey diners and cafes where the focal points of small town social life. Vic's retains much of that same small town charm. In fact, the Mayor and other city "principals" often gather here to solve the problems of the world over a good meal.
The atmosphere is typical small town diner. The food is the same, satisfying, tasty, and inexpensive. Their breakfasts are great, but coffee could be better, but don't let that stop you. The service is great too! Avoid the chains and fast-food choke-and-pukes, Vic's is a little gem in downtown Paso. If you are looking for a good solid breakfast after the previous day's wine-tasting or big night out downtown, you won't regret Vic's.
After your meal, take time to walk it off by touring around downtown. Vic's is a block from the town square, the library, very close to stores (and more tasting rooms), antique shops, etc.
