You KNOW , I'll have to give them a try, and right afterward, I will be going to Sam's to get a double cheese for the drive home. We have an In and Out where I live , and The fries are top of the line. The burgers aren't bad, but are forgettable. I would of put Val's on the list if they are still open, I would think more people went to and liked them than some of the others. I fasted all of yesterday, so I am really hungry now, thanks Analisa.

Oh yes! Val's is still open. I just stuck with burger joints on Hesperian Blvd., but if it included places all over the area, you know Val's would be on there! You and double cheeses are the first things that come to mind when I think Sam's, haha.
