Takes me back on time. Growing up when original show aired. Still watch nightly reruns. Seeing the facades. A quaint store at service station. Precious.

Very interesting place. Unfortunantly we parked and walked 8 blocks each way only to find the ride was unavailable. The very friendly lady called but never a response. Highly recommending calling first.

Nice, nick knacks, old time candy, squad car tours. Replica of sheriff's office was the best. Free, worth a stop.

The woman working at the counter took forever helping people. She chatted with a man about a map and his life while 3 other people stood in line. She also scolded my daughter for touching things, which she wasn't. I would not buy from this store again.

We learned so much about Andy Griffith and the city of Mt. Airy. Our police car driver Don, was great....using the siren and yelling at people on the street. He was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The granite quarry was something I new nothing about and I was surprised to learn all about it. This tour was much better than the... More

DO NOT MISS THIS! It was our very favorite thing in Mayberry. The driver/tour guide was very fun and was born and raised in Mt. Airy so very knowledgeable on the town. We laughed and laughed and loved it when he blew the siren. Charge was $35 for four of us.

After seeing all the normal tourist spots in Mt. Airy we stopped at Wally's and found it quite interesting. Lots of memorabilia of times gone by.

What Service! The folks at Wally's were so helpful and kind. The "service station" has TONS of GREAT souvenirs at affordable prices. My kids went crazy in there. We bought the cutest shirts and Andy Griffith memorabilia. We spent the biggest part of our day in that area of town. You definitely need to visit this great little place. What... More

Recommended to call here and get reservations if you want to do the squad car tour. Little shop inside the service station.

My wife and I visited this gas station. We enjoyed looking at the location because we had only seen it on the television for so many years.

Thank Andy S
