This was a relatively cheap option and perfect for kids. I had the cheese steak and it did not disappoint. My 11 year olds had bacon cheese burgers and gobbled them down. We shared a marvelous, thick chocolate milk shake. We will visit more often now that we know. Thanks to the previous reviews for recommending this less expensive, quick... More

Have basically boycotted this place for about 13 years. Previous owner was not pleasant to deal with and the restaurant always felt dirty. New owners brought back the friendliness of the place that I went to for lunch every day during high school. I've been back 3 times since the change and found it to be exactly what I wanted:...

Good, basic "diner" food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The NEW OWNERS are super nice and doing a great job! This is the lowest priced food on the island. We eat here at least twice a week. Did I mention the scrumptious milkshakes? YUM!

New owners. They have done a really great job taking over. Had a burger and it was terrific! They also serve breakfast but I haven't tried it yet.

This place reminds me of the lunch counters in New England where I grew up. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is fun. Prices are modest...not a bad place for lunch!

This has been on of our favorite go to places since moving to the island. The mexican burger and the club sandwiches are fantastic. Everything we have tried here has been great but the salads could use a little extra something.

Every town should have a burger joint like Vic's. I had the bacon-ham burger with fries and my wife had the Philly cheese-steak with fries. The sandwiches were both hot, juicy and tasty, but the fries were cooked a couple minutes too long for our tastes. Service was friendly and reasonably quick. The menu was huge and took up most...

If you're looking for a great cheap burger, this is the place to go! Vic is friendly and came and talked with us, and the fries and onion rings are also really good!
