Usually order the cheese dog and fries. Comes loaded with wonderful pickle wedges. Milkshakes are great! Have been there many times.

VJs has been around Winnipeg in this same location for many years. Fantastic burgers and fries. There are a couple of picnic tables to eat outside but most people eat in their cars or take home. Fast service.

Don't let the building fool you, it is worth the drive and wait to eat there. Delicious burgers with HUGE portions. When you order fries they just keep piling them in your container for you. I took my husband here for his first experience of...More
