WHO WE ARE
What does Van Loc mean?
- To some it means a lot of luck
- To others it has no meaning at all and is just a name
- To us it means great food and people to share it with

Van Loc Restaurant first opened its doors in August of 1986. We stand as one of the first Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants in the area. We have been family run from day one. Our menu consists of nearly 200 recipes that come straight from "Mama." We have something for everyone on the menu from the vegetarians to the meat and seafood lovers. Vietnamese cuisine prides itself on the contrast of flavors and textures in each and every dish. It is also lighter than Chinese cuisine with their heavy sauces. These qualities make Vietnamese cuisine very distinctive. Here at Van Loc Restaurant, we do not consider our patrons as customers, but as friends ready to try some of our family's home-style cooking.
