After Hockey Game Meal

Stopped by Val's for a quick take out after a hockey tournament game. First you have to order on a small easy to use screen. Takes a little getting used to, but we ordered and paid by CC in 3 mins. This is a hamburger joint. Period. Don't expect fancy extras. This is circa 1950s sock hop drive... read more

I almost feel bad saying this but I don't think I like Val's. I like WHAT it is. A tiny take out restaurant that's been around for years with a space aged ordering system. The fries are soooo salty, way too much seasoning. I had a shrimp burger the other day and it was so lack luster. The cheese on... More

Val's is located on what used to be US Highway 10 (which is now several blocks east). It must date from the 1950s, or perhaps earlier. Vals is in a very small building; there are some picnic tables outside if you want to eat on-site. You order on a computer monitor and in just a few minutes your burger and... More

This place has everything going for it. Hot fresh made burgers on fresh buns that are so soft, all wrapped up in paper and dropped in a bag. Now your burger gets covered with your huge order of fries right out of the fryer and coated with a tasty seasoning salt, top all this off with a milk shake and... More

There is no place to sit in this take-out only restaurant, but there are a couple places to put in your order, and the food comes quickly. It's right off of Hwy 10 and close to the east-side Target and downtown. My kids love Val's, particularly their fries. I like their burgers, but find the fries to be very salty.... More

Awesome burgers made to order. You order on a screen whatever you want, pay, and your order is ready in no time. Great burgers, fries, and shakes.

Val's is adorable from the outside. It looks like a tiny hamburger shop from the 50's, which I think it may be from? Order a small fry & its bigger than a super sized fry at any other place. Super tasty & superbly seasoned fries. You will eat everyone. You order inside on a phone, which is quite unique, or... More
