We go to Val's to change things up with good pizza, do the thin crust, and great salad. Try to get Eli to wait on your table, a nice young man.

Friendly atmosphere with good food and attentive staff. The pizza is very good and the sandwiches are wonderful! And they have a variety of beers on tap!

Val's is a popular neighborhood spot. Not fancy, but very good food and service. Sometimes it amazes me what we get for the money. It is a really great value. Val's has our favorite pizza in the area, but they have very good sandwiches too....More

The pizza is very good, especially the thin crust pizza. There is plenty of room to sit and the wait staff is very friendly.

We drove past because there is a scuzzy apartment house next door with grubby people staring at passersby. There is another pizza place a block or so away, but it was not air conditioned, so we went back to Val's and parked on the other...More

Stopped for some calzones while staying at the dunes. Good calzone, excellent sauce, but lacked ricotta.

Literally, you have to try the bomb. It is an awesome concoction and my favorite item in the menu. The staff is friendly. The facility could use a good clean, but it isn't too bad. The food is great.

I've been there several times. They have good pizza. The calzones are really good and the antipasto salad is really good.

The food here is very good, my family loves their wings, pizza and pasta. Of course, their signature bomb sandwich is awesome too. Sometimes the service leaves a little to be desired, but most staff are friendly and the food is reasonably priced.

Thank Katherine S
