Without a doubt, a better burger is not available - anywhere. You'll never want a McKarlJacKing again

You come for the milkshakes but order a burger to cover the real purpose. The burgers and fries are good, but the milkshakes are divine. Sit at the counter to watch them being made.

The burgers are good, a bit greasy. Normally crowded and noisy. If you can arrive avoid the prime time dining for lunch or dinner. Could have to wait outside for a table. Food is over rated for what you get.

I have been to Val's twice. The first time the service was excellent;the second time the waitress came to our table to take our order and bring our food. I bragged to my husband about this place and was sorry that the service was disappointing. We had to go get our bill. However, the hamburgera were excellent!

I have never been to a burger joint quite like Val's. It is like an authentic 50's diner. It has been around for awhile too, so it makes it even that much better. I loved that they had buger toppings on the table. Yum! There vanilla malts were extra malty. We LOVE that. Our waitress was great. BUT, when we... More

Although not much money has ever been spent on the décor, the food remains stellar and solid Having eaten here many years ago the food standards remain high with the quality surpurb. My first trip here was prior to a rather formal meeting starting at seven. Ordered a papa burger, onion rings, fries, and a real chocolate malt. It was... More

My wife has been going to Val's since she was a little girl, and she now takes her grand-kids. Burgers and fries of course. The buns are too small, or the burgers too big. Only order 1 side of fries, it doesn't matter how many in your party, one order is enough. There are plenty of good menu choices; stew,... More

This is a genuine burger joint that will fill you up fast and keep you coming back for more. Huge orders of fries and onion rings. Be careful, the parking lot fills up fast, but it is worth the wait. This is a local favorite!

We try to visit Val's every time we come to Hayward, and we're always glad we did. This was our second visit this trip. We always seem to order the same items 'cause we like them so much. Burgers with cheese, bacon, tomato - then piled with pickles and onions. Onion rings -- always crisp, never over-breaded. Mushrooms flavored with... More
