One of the simplest, and best, hamburgers you will ever eat. Grilled over a wood fire, served with a bun, and a piece of lettuce. There are pickle chips, relish, and onion slices on the table, but that's it. Cheese and tomatoes are offered as an extra. Just a great burger!!!

Val's is an East Bay institution. Good burgers and milkshakes. They only take cash. There are lines at meal times, but don't worry they move quickly and the wait is well worth it.

This is a great spot for burgers, great shakes and the pies are MMMM. There is always a wait but the wait is well worth it. If you eat there once you will be bac many times

Burgers, fries, milkshakes & history. What you would expect of a place that's been around this long, celebrity signed photos, etc.
If you are in the out of the way area of Hayward/Castro Valley and the're open great place for lunch or dinner.
Lived for 10 years 4 blocks away, not an area to hang around at night with kids.

All of the kudos are well-deserved! Limited parking/seating. Come hungry! Share a milkshake as the portions are huge!
