This is my favourite burger joint in the city. Be sure to grab a bunch of napkins as the burgers are stuffed and messy! The fries are fresh cut, fresh fried, and one order is more than enough as they first fill the little fry bag and then add a scoop more. A few things to be aware of before... More

It is really good and you will always come back. Pretty simple and straight forward, Burgers and Fries, and Shakes, etc. It has been in Winnipeg for Many decades and really is a place to stop if you are in the city and very close to everything Downtown, including the Forks and such....Enjoy.

As I'm new to Winnipeg, I was told by friends to try this place for a good burger. I decided to try it out and the first time I went, I noticed a sign that says they only accept cash...having a debit card only, I went elsewhere for lunch but returned three days later when I had another opportunity to...

Traditional Greek style homemade burgers and fries, cheeseburgers, cheeseburgers, Pepsi, Pepsi, cash only no soup for you! Owners are there all the time, fries should be in a box so you can vinegarize them. Chili on the burgers is hot and homemade. Eating outdoors or in your car.Cash only, no plastic. Return often!!

My personal favourite burger in the city. I would recommend getting the V.J.'s special and an order of fries. Did not try the shakes but I have heard that they are also good! Highly recommend this place.

We had the VJ's Special Burger which was very tasty. The fries were hot and crisp. Best place to get a burger in the Winter.

Vj's is a wonderful family take out. On a nice day the outside tables are full. A fat boy and fries in a box are legendary. The return of the lime shake is a must have. Bring cash this a non visa stop. I have taken my son who now rates every burger to a VJ's.

If you're travelling across Canada, this is the place to go for one of the country's best burger joints. It's right across the street from the train station! I travel past on my regular commute and the deliciousness is frequently enticing.
