Wanted a quick supper, was in the area and wanted to check this place out. Service is good and the burger was even better! Will come back!

Awesome fries and atmosphere. This place is literally a hole in the wall where you step in to order and drive away or weather permitting picnic tables outside. The menu is limited and really good. Portions are good and by the number of locals coming in to pick up lunch it will be around for many more years.

If you crave a good burger burger and zesty fries. Place to go. Summer time you can eat outside. Fast. After dinner you can hop down the forks to walk off the yummy meal. We have never been happier then when we eat the. High recommended.

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.
