Good food for what it is.

From the outside, it doesn't look like it would have good food, but it does. Nice employees, good service, and a decent variety of food. Nothing truly spectacular, but better than I expected.

This is a classic burger and fries take out spot where you can leave in a hurry with a greasy-stained bag of tasty burgers and French fries. Parking is at a premium however and it helps if you arrive before mealtime or during the off hours. The combination of old style menu and new tech ordering make for a unique... More

There is not much I can add that others haven't already said: Great burgers, fries and shakes at INCREDIBLY CHEAP prices! My sons (20 yrs and 13 yrs) said the burgers reminded them of 5 guys, but I am happy the prices did not reflect that. We got a single, a double and triple, additional toppings, fries we all shared...

I saw this listed as one of the top places to eat on trip advisor, and decided to try it. The burger was ok at best. There are plenty of places to get a better burger. The fries were seasoned well but pretty greasy.

This is a great place to stop for a burger and fries. It would be best served with a side dish of Lipitor! They embrace the burger and fries and don't try to be something they're not. The workers are all extremely happy and interact so well with customers. Cool items like a shrimp burger! It doesn't look like much... More

Val's is a MUST visit when in the area. A True St Cloud landmark and experience. Family owned and operated since opening. No service during winter months so, when Spring comes... It's "When we going to Val's?" You Will just love it!

Val's may be St. Cloud landmark, but really.... There are several burger joints in town that are far better than Val's. I love greasy dives, and grease is what you get at Val's, but the food is simply not that good. Sorry, but even the fries are not that great.

Located not far off of Highway 10 and Highway 23 in Sauk Rapids in an area of town, that I would describe as older, sits a small fast food place called Val's. I don't know how many changes they have done throughout the years, but it remains as a favorite of many people. This place is always busy, don't expect... More
