We had a lovely lunch with fast service and good food after we were out shopping at Adam's this past weekend. There are steady stream of customers at this popular Diner - for good reason. Their prices are reasonable and the food is good. We ordered chicken souvlaki and Greek salad. The portions were ample and the waitress attentive. My... More

Only area diner where the breakfast is always done exactly as you ordered it! Only Valley gets the home fries perfectly. Prices are great too. Just wish they wouldn't have Fox on all the TVs all the time!. I'd rather leave politics outside when having my breakfast. Channel 12 maybe?

Derby has limited restaurant options so when we visited this diner we thought, judging by the amount of the cars in the parking lot, it must be good. Wrong! Although the breakfast are fine, nothing spectacular, the lunches are mediocre. Had Shepards Pie and it was topped with a mound of potatoes rather than the crust I was use to... More

There's a lack if diners in the area, and when the one in Orange closed, we found Valley. I usually take my mother there for lunch, so I can't comment on the entire menu. However, the Spanakopita appetizer this last visit was a huge portion, surrounded by salad greens and large cubes of feta. My mom said it was delicious.... More

I have been coming to the VAlley Dinner (VD to those of us from the valley) for 30 plus years. They make wonderful burgers, breakfast items and fantastic salads. This is a great place to come in the early hours of the morning after a night out. My husband and I loved bringing our boys here when they were little.... More
