What is a Valley Original?
The Valley Originals (all of the restaurants above) is a group of locally owned and operated restaurants that have joined together to share their thoughts and ideas on what the true experience of local eatery should be like. By their very nature the independent restaurant is unique in its ambience, recipes and service - it is not a copy of any other restaurant in the locale. Food is prepared fresh daily, often from local product. Frozen food prepared in some far flung commissary is not the fare of the independent restaurant. The owner is on the premises to respond to your dining needs and wishes. We support local organizations, charities and activities and are all involved in the community effort. Our goal is to give you a very special and unique experience and the finest food found anywhere. We invite you to view some of our favorite restaurants that are part of the Valley Originals!
