Randy Bachman has mentioned several times how much he likes VJ's Drive Inn so we checked it out during our recent Winnipeg visit. It was FANTASTIC!! The burgers were huge and delicious and just the right amount of sloppy. The home fries were very plentiful...More

Nothing fancy here! Just home made burgers, lots of calories and grease, oodles of flavour and a little mess running down your arm. Just what you wanted, just what you ordered, and it's been doing it forever.

Many reviews tout the virtues of this old school hamburger stand but I have to pile onto that. The VJ special is a real home cooked cheese burger with tomatoe, iceburg lettuce and a thin but flavourful chilli that makes this for a messy treat....More

If you are visiting Winnipeg and looking for a burger you must stop here. You simply go in one door and out the other with a landmark burger. You will not be disappointed!! I have been going there for years and always great service.
