When you pull up to Schoop's in Valpo, the sign says world's famous burgers. They are delicious. "As advertised!" This place takes you back in time, counter service, friendly wait staff and fun, delicious menu items. Burgers are great. Try the pork tenderloin sandwich; perfectly breaded and fried. French fries and onion rings are perfectly done. You must try the... More

I love Schoop's burgers. I HATE that you have to purchase fries separate. Your meal sure adds up quite quickly this way. I also wish they gave you the metal containers for your shakes.

We love Schoops! The classic burger and fries and shake are always our favorites but the hotdogs and other sandwiches never disappoint! A family favorite for after church or for celebrations.

Yes, the burgers at this Schoop's are terrific - and their other sandwiches are good as well. But, this Schoop's offers what very well could be the best home-made soups in town. There's a different soup every day. They call their tasty chili a soup as well and it's available every day. My favorites are their ham & bean and... More

Burgers were great for lunch. A little on the greasy side but fresh and good. Show stealer were the freshly made batter dipped onion rings!!!

Just passing through and this place catches our eye. Went in to grab a couple of burgers and fries. Well, added a share also. Good meals, prepared as ordered and served promptly enough. Will look forward to visiting again in the future.

The diner burger with crispy edges and juicy center seems to be a lost art form apart from Schoop's that still serves delicious burgers the way they are supposed to be made. This is the kind of burger I would eat as a last meal. It's that great. The retro 50's diner vibe and fun drink choices like Green River... More

Went for lunch on a weekday and due to so many parking restrictions in the lot I waited 10-15 minutes for a space. I am mobility-impaired as were other diners that day, but all but one vehicle had to park in the netherlands and hike to the door: there is only 1 spot for specially tagged vehicles as such. I...

One of my favorite places to go when I'm out visiting relatives. Love their burgers and shakes. Schoops is always a must do on our list when we visit.
