Val's has been around Nebraska for decades, starting in Lincoln, then franchising out. As they have franchised locations like these have popped up with buffet that are an excellent value. You get everything from their pizza which has a sweeter tomato sauce than most others, to other dishes including lasagna and wings. Salads, deserts including soft serve ice cream are on the menu. Good value for the dollars spent here - great location for kids.

I've loved Val's since I was a kid and we lived near the original one in Lincoln just after it started! I've been to this location multiple times and it's always a good visit! The staff is friendly and helpful and the food never disappoints! Where else can you get such a variety of food for a reasonable cost? It's been a month - I need to get back here again!!

Regular buffet food. It's decent and inexpensive. Tuesday nights are great because kids eat free and there is a clown that goes around and makes balloon animals for all the kids.

Honestly, people that tell you how much they "love" valentinos, just have not had much in the way of good pizza. Their sauce is so blan that it ruins almost all of their pizza combinations (which are also lacking). They feel the need to put onions on almost EVERYTHING. The rest of the food their is pretty damn good. The chicken is always moist and delicious. The blonde brownies are the best. But the pizza is so....eh. I have yet to find one pizza there is truely can stand. I'm forced to go there too many times a year because my kids like having a variety of things to pick from and not even take a bite of.
It's just a buffet with some not good pizza. Don't be fooled by you "local" friends.. they just want you to suffer with them. Go to Golden Corral or the Pizza Hut lunch buffet.
