Loved the atmosphere in Vic's. It's a genuine old diner that we stopped by to have breakfast. Full of local, so for English tourists like us it was a treat! Fab American breakfast and enough coffee to drown me

A standard all American family run eatery with good food and excellent service. Friendly staff who all speak English and where locals congregate. Right next to the beautiful town square and all the shops.

Lovely fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon and eggs cooked exactly how you ask! There's comfy booths and standard tables and a great counter too. Good quality food, fast and pleasant service. Would recommend.

we had been in Paso for days and eating wonderful, rich food three times a day. We just wanted some good, uncomplicated food and we found it plus a smiling waitress and a wonderful chocolate milkshake

We stumbled upon this place while on vacation and were pleasantly surprised. The coffee was good, the food was tasty, and the service was great! I would go back next time we are in the area.

Perfect breakfast place, where the locals go. Very casually, comfortable. Right downtown. Classic American food. Good portions, good price. Wait staff very pleasant, best French toast ever, really!

I love this place. Everybody loves it there, it's such a nice atmosphere! I've been going since I was little and still love it. I highly recommend the cowboy Benedict, or anything with their gravy on it! Yum.

Old fashioned, American comfort food kind of place. I had the hot turkey sandwich which was good, but rather salty. Large portion. My husband had an ok patty melt with potato salad he couldn't eat. He didn't like it at all. The coffee was also very blah. Cookies were over-baked. Wouldn't recommend the place. Very cheap if you are on... More
