One of those local treasures you have to try. If you're at the forks or Via station its just a short walk to VJs on Main Street. Whenever I visit the Peg I gotta get a VJ Burger. Nothin fancy but Great Burgers, Fries and...More

I got late into Winnipeg and was looking for a "take out" place with good food and fast service. This place is what I was looking for. Open late, fast service and good quality. I got a burger, shake and fries. Everything was delicious!

It's a nice place to eat at. Just if you plan blink you kinda miss it. But it's all good to be there at times

Heard for some time that we should try VJ so stopped by one evening after a Forks outing. Ordered a hot dog and fries. Was delighted in the food - well worth it.

There is something kind of cool about this place. It's kind of one of those divey whole-in-the-wall hidden gems that the locals know. It reminded me of Milky Way in Regina, Saskatchewan - obviously VJ's isn't an ice-cream joint, but it had that same kind...More
