LOVE Val's. Never had a bad meal and never ever walked away hungry :) The momma burger is pure heaven. Meat so tender it is like a good steak. Diner feel and don't forget to order the milk shake.

Val's has that small diner feel, but has excellent burgers. It was the bestburger I have ever had. We also got a huge basket of fries that we shared because it was so big.

This little burger place is a nice surprise. Doesn't look like much and small, but the crowd waiting is all you need to see that this place has great food. The burgers are juicy and the milkshakes are delicious!

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!
