Val's Burgers

2115 Kelly Street, Hayward, CA - (510) 889-8257
Curious eaters almost can’t go wrong at Val’s, with the breakfast/lunch menu ranging from their famous hotcakes to Val’s namesake burgers. Enthusiasts may order burgers up to one pound, and grilled onions are available.

You may have to park a block away and wait in line, but Val’s aims to please.

The chili dog, so evenly smothered with bean-laden chili that the cheese is nowhere to be seen.  Real onion rings are in the basket.

Bar none, the best chocolate malt we’ve ever had (with unmixed vanilla chunks clearly visible).

A rare moment when the milkshake-making staffer wasn’t cleaning, as he left every inch of stainless steel seen here sparkling and immaculate.

Untouched by time, Val’s remains one of the Bay Area’s finest burger stops.
