Val's Burgers, if you are from Hayward or the surrounding Towns you have probably heard of Val's Burgers or have even been there many times. But if by chance you have not you need to go and get the best burger in town! Family owned business, no frills just a diner that servers great burgers and GREAT milkshakes! It is... More

This restaurant doesn't provide a lot of parking and the lot is always full because the food is that good and you get great portions. Wonderful burgers and excellent breakfasts. Hours are limited but if you get in, you will not be disappointed!

This is an old fashioned restaurant still in the family. The food is great and large servings. Milkshakes are the old fountain kind. Everyone is friendly. Cash only. This summer we took the 4th generation ( great grand children) there for lunch. They took our picture for us! Lots of fun and memories for our family.

I love this place. Great burgers, service, and even better milk shakes. I always stop to at least get a shake to go.

Everyone who works in Val's is the best. They are helpful, quick, and say yes with a smile. The food is definitely 60's and good. Burgers are not your frozen mold shaped burgers from a big box. They are made to order and they still get to your table fast. A baby burger is enough for me!

The menu and decor hasn't changed much since we came here when I was a kid in the 60's. Definitely the best burgers we've ever had anywhere. Wonderful, huge shakes in old fashion soda glasses and you get the can too (it's like getting 2 shakes). One order of fries is enough for 2-3 people. Love them for breakfast too.... More
