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

One of our favorite places for Sunday breakfast. Great omelette with all the Goodies. Typical truck driver type restaurant...and good at that.

Vic's is usually busy. The locals all know and love it. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. We live to stop here for breakfast.

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.

Old fashioned cafe with good food at a very fair price. We had a late lunch and the place was still packed, we took the last open table. Quick service and good food. Many of the people were locals, which is great! It is a neighborhood hang out!!

Had breakfast one morning with a party of nine. They were very accommodating with a large walk-in group. Food and service quite good. Not your resort type foo- foo food or atmosphere but, just good all-American food. I would recommend the home-made corned beef hash.

We found Vic's on YELP and went strictly on the reviews. They were so right. It is an old time cafe, like stepping back decades (in a good way!). The staff is great very friendly. We went back the second day for breakfast, BUT on our third day it was so crowded we didn't want to wait, so we continued... More

Vic’s is typical: Typical diner restaurant, typical service and typical food. Typical meaning warm, inviting, friendly, fresh, tasty and affordable, and I would happily recommend a lunch there to anyone. [Sorry to Vic, if there is a Vic, and team, but you can blame TripAdvisor’s silly labels for your Average rating. If there’d been something between Average and Very Good... More

Basic plain, breakfast. Nothing with pazzazz or yummy. Just kinda boaring plain food. It is good but just plain. Service is always friendly as ever. They sell homegrown amazing tomatoes that we always pick up. But overall it is simple, ok basic breakfast. Pancakes, simple omelets, eggs, bacon. Nothing frilly.

Good for breakfast. Stopped here on our visit wineries of Paso Robles. Nothing special about the food (at breakfast time), just very decent and honest. But the atmosphere and décor are awesome. We have visitors from other country with us, so it was a great presentation of American old style diner with huge meal portions served and locals around. We... More
