I recently ate at Valley Kitchen and had the 4 piece southern fried chicken dinner. The pieces were the size of a SEAGULL, not a chicken. Very small for the price. Skip this place. If this review was helpful in any way check the "helpful" box below.

The food was mediocre and not worth the price. Our server was very nice but we waited a long time for our check and she finally came over and said; "You have to go up front to get your check." Strange procedure for a sit-down restaurant.

Family style diner with great service and good food. The breakfast and dinner are both very good and there isn't long wait times.

For convenience, had dinner here last night & breakfast this morning. Less expensive than many of the options in the hotel circle, with large portions. We're talking diner food here so vegans & gluten avoiders might struggle! It's not the greatest diner food but it's okay. The place is a little tired looking but the people here are nice &... More

We had a dinner and a breakfast at this restaurant. I had a turkey croissant and salad , food was fresh and service was fast and friendly. I am always hesitant to order the fruit salad, often the fruit is questionable. I had toast and a fruit salad for breakfast, fruit was fresh, and Delicious! I was very happy. My... More

The people were so friendly and the food was amazing. It was a great value and I can't wait to go back. We had a group of 6 people. Every single person love to the food they were here.

The Valley Kitchen serves home-made like cuisine and it is delicious. The cream of mushroom soup was the best I had tasted in a long time. And the chocolate shakes are nice and thick! Our waitress was friendly and remembered us when we returned for a second evening.

We found this place next to our hotel in San Diego, and what a great find it was! The meals were HUGE, and they were really tasty! The service was great as well, and if we had been in the area longer we probably would have stopped by there again!
