This place was just strange. We really wanted to like it, but the food just wasn't good. Tasted as if everything had come out of a freezer and was thrown in a microwave to warm it up. I swear they served the crinkle cut French fries you get at a school cafeteria....It's a shame, because it is locally owned and... More

My husband and I have been here several times and each has been terrific. The food is always great and consistent. Also the service is always terrific. Their location is wonderful as it's in downtown Paso Robles, near the square and movie theater.

Little country diner - with a 50's vibe - great for locals and visitors alike. Biscuits and Gravy or Huevos Rancheros - it's all good. Homemade soups and pies.

We ate an early dinner here. We love diners but only the authentic ones. Vic's has been open for several years. They have excellent chicken fried steak with the old fashioned white country gravy. The smoked beef ribs were incredible and cost half of the the price at the steak houses. The servers were all so friendly and efficient. No... More

Love this place for breakfast. Country charm restaurant that offers great breakfast options at a good value. The standout though are their pancakes. Top notch, fluffy, flavorful and makes your mouth water thinking of them. Service is great, friendly, quick. Always a favorite to visit when in town.
