Classic burger joint, with amazing french fries. No seating on site, but a definite stop for anyone in the area. Burgers are cooked to order, so they are always fresh and hot. Fries are AMAZING, and the portion size is incredible. Prices are super cheap, a double cheeseburger is $3. Food for four people (no drinks) was under $17.

Heard to check this place out. Wasn't impressed unfortunately. I had high hopes, but thought it was your average burger joint.

My daughter told us about Val's for some good hamburgers. We were a bit skeptical but she said the college kids from St. Cloud State University loved it and often took their parents there. She took us there and I ordered a triple cheese burger with fries. Great food and a very good price; the fries were awesome. I can... More

St. Cloud hasn't much of anything interesting except for a stop at Val's. Like going back 50 years in time for a burger and fries.

This is a must stop if you have a few days in St Cloud! I had the cheeseburger. Classic. Fresh bun, tasty burger. It reminded me of burgers from days gone by. It's hard to explain this placed. It was packed with people on a Sunday afternoon at 1:30. Ordering is on a screen. Five workers prep your food the... More

We love having vans for our picnic down at clements or monsignor parks. The fries are awesome e and very cheat food for what you get. You order a regular fry and you can't eat them all cause they add more to your bag. Very good food and excellent price for what you get. They even have awesome shakes.

A true gem of central Minnesota. Foods are always hot and fresh. Exterior looks rundown but interior is very clean and modern. Pick up only.

Val's is a long time staple of East St Cloud and worth the trip. The familiar green A-frame building offers no inside seating...you eat in your car or the back of your tailgate. I had a bacon cheese burger and fries and it was great. You order on a computer screen and wait with others for your number to be... More

Consistent, actually fast, fast food is hard to find truthfully. This place is a place you get what you expect. The prices seriously can't be beat and the portions are huge! Totally worth the stop for new customers or people wanting consistently fast food.
