I was very surprised that they don't wear gloves whatsoever. I found a pieces of hair in my fries. Threw it away, never going back again!

Stopped here because of TA reviews on a nice day to pick up a picnic lunch for our family of 4. The place was packed on a Friday afternoon (very small building for to go orders) but the service is definitely rapid. There were 12 people in front of me but I was in and out in 12 minutes. You... More

This place has a special place in most locals hearts. It's not that they are the best burgers in the world, but they are good. Its the experience, ordering on the computer screen (and they have been doing that for along time). Standing there watching them cook the burgers fresh. The burgers stacked in the bag with fries poured in... More

Val's burgers are the girdle cooked kind I loved as a kid. The choices of condiments are great for this small place and the fries are the best in town. All orders are takeout. Call ahead and they have it ready when u get there. Owned by the same family since it opened, Val's is a homegrown, local favorite that... More

I went to college in st cloud for four years an I'm surprised i never knew of this place. And its just down the road from Target near the college. Its a great little hole in the wall joint that serves up greasy burgers and very salty fries. They also make a mean shake. This is apparently a popular joint... More

Val's is the perfect place to grab a burger and shake! Has a very classic burger joint taste and the service is great. You get to use a computer to customize your order including many toppings and sizes. VERY inexpensive. And you get a lot of food for what you pay for. Great hangover cure and I highly recommend this... More

Stop by Val's for lunch today. I love the checkout process, and the burgers are really good. You get a TON of fries so I would recommend a normal order. Shakes are amazing as well. I would rather support Val's over Burger King or McDonald's.

I don't think the Burgers and Fries from Val's can be beat! YUM! A true landmark in St. Cloud. If you are a fan of Burgers and Fries you will LOVE Val's.

I went to college at SCSU and used to love Val's burgers. Of course Val's is much more than just a tasty burger, the real treat is the 1/2 pound of fries they give you. I was pleasantly surprised to see it's still open and still serving some of the tastiest burgers around. You don't come here pleasantries, you come... More

Never judge this book by its cover...this tiny hole-in-the-wall place really turns out classic burgers, fries and shakes better than those famous franchised places. Here at "Val's Rapid Serve" the customer enter their own orders into the self service terminals and have the option of prepaying by credit or debit card, or cash at the time they pickup their food....
