Friendly, asked waitress whether I should get the cinnamon roll, french toast, or pancakes: she was very enthusiastic about the pancakes. Well ... I did finish them, which I don't always do, but they were average (rather than below average); bacon was somewhat above average. Crowd felt local, which was nice.

This is a local's breakfast spot with great food. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table as the locals will fill it up quickly. Food is well prepared and worth the wait. Service is as good as any restaurant in Paso.

We lucked into this spot in downtown. It was crowded, and with good reason. We had a late breakfast--omelette, hash browns, toast--all fresh ingredients, served hot, and cooked perfectly. Service was attentive. Just what we needed. The menu was extensive for those wanting more.

This is the place if you want to have a fast lunch but don't want to eat fast food. The food was very good and the price was very affordable.

Stumbled on Vics - excellent food, good prices and efficient, friendly service. Pancakes were delish - as were the chorizo & eggs.
