Great burger- great value

We were passing through the area and Val's was recommended to us by lock friends. Great burgers and really amazing price! Nothing fancy here- but within the limited range of what they do, they do it incredibly well!

While this place is a local legend, the food is quite basic: burgers, fries, shakes...period! The simplicity and its commitment to remain as it always was (nostalgia?) is its main draw. Somewhat of a cult following. A "must do" if you want to step back in time to the days of simple, no frills, "greasy"(in a very good way!) burger... More

I love Val's! It is a great burgers and fries kind of place. It is not a chain is a one-of-a-kind mom-and-pop shop has been run by the same people since they opened it is a great small restaurant. True there's no seating inside, but during the summer they occasionally have a picnic table outside to enjoy your delicious lunch,... More

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.
