Val's is an extremely small old style burger take out joint. There literally is only standing room in this old converted gas station that has been serving up the burgers and fries and shakes since the late 50s. The place can be hard to find but the taste you will not forget. The menu is small and the fries are... More

Fantastic food for what it is. It is a burger/fry/milkshake place that does it all well with an old school feel. Food comes out fast and delicious.

Wow what a fun little college burger place! They have great food and you order from an iPad. No frills here just nice staff and a great burger.

We drove by while trying to find a client. After we found the we went back to try out Val's because it looked interesting. Very small facility with a great ordering station. We each choose the double cheeseburger, fries and a beverage. The burger was good, so were the fries, despite them being about the salties fries I've ever eaten.... More

So we went here because of all the hype. Disappointed. We had to get everything separately because I wanted a milkshake. Holy cow, if I knew it would cost an arm and leg I would've just gone to McDonalds. Yeah, so it came with a lot of greasafied fries. That definitely doesn't make up for the bill. The burger was...

Still the same great burger and fries that I remember when I was a kids traveling through with my parents. Burger, top notch, fries to die for.

If you blink, you just might miss Val's! It's just a little corner shop on the corner of Lincoln and East St. Germain, but once you've found it, you won't forget! As other's have stated, you come in and order off a kiosk, pay right there and then wait for your number to be called. A large fry will comfortably... More

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
