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.

Known for being a local joint for tasty burger, fries and shakes. They are know for chili on their burger. Downside is no heated seating. Problem to sit and eat if it's winter and you don't have a car.

I used to take my kids there many years ago and it's still very nice to visit on a hot summer day. The Sundaes and ice cream is really very good and well worth our 1 hour trip each way. Recommended.

burger prepared as ordered and to my very like; fries were crispy as always; it really takes little time for them to prepare your order and they offer basic condiments on the side, enough to enjoy your burger.

One of my favorite place to eat in Winnipeg. The deluxe burger with extra chilli is my favorite. Love the fries and milkshakes as well to complete the combo.

Ask anyone from Winnipeg what summer meant to them, and VJ's is sure to be included in their story. My family loves frequenting here all we can. The service is quick, and the food is immaculate. The Special is hands down the best burger in the city
