This is one of those places where you are reminded of how things used to be. It is a good menu for people who like old ways of eating and drinking ~ and you will see lots of locals (especially elders) return again and again. It is one of those places you are glad is still open because it is... More

Was here about two years ago and had a great meal thought we would try it again and were not disappointed. Terriyaki chicken meal was an excellent choice along with a steak dinner. For me this is a surprise location known mostly by locals who seem to frequent it lot. Good meals reasonable prices. Parking can be a challenge so... More

We came to San Francisco on vacation from the UK and, having stayed in Daly City, looked to TripAdvisor to help us choose which restaurant to visit. Val's was third (out of 171!) on the list, so we had high expectations. Our waitress showed us to the table and the restaurant seemed full; a good sign we thought. We ordered... More

Was on a busy schedule - walked to Val's from a nearby Hampton Inn around 7PM. The service was excellent, the menu had many choices, and the food was delicious but not expensive by SF area standards. Val's also features a full-service bar. Feels like a family-owned place with a lot of class. Ambiance is a little retro and very... More

Not a fancy place, but not bad either. Stayed at Hampton Inn Dale City so was only a block away. Meals were in the $20-30 range. Service was good. Not a loud place so talking was easy. Quality was very good.

just feels like they don't care. I am not sure how you stay in business when producing nasty tasting food

Did a google search and Daly City was the prefect half way point to meet friends coming from Marin and me from Palo Alto. Val's fit the bill. Not much to look at from the outside but once inside, the crowd was great (a bit older than me). Bartender friendly, knowledgable and made great drink. Real ginger beer for Moscow... More

Food was from average to not good. Val was dry and there was more bread than meet. Service was slow, we need to wait more than 5 minutes to be seated despite the fact that restaurant was almost empty and there was no one else waiting.
