The owner waited on us he is so kind and friendly. The burgers were great and the baskets of fries were to die for. The Cheerwine was amazing. Next time we are in town we'll be back.

We just stopped in for a milkshake and it was very good with whipped cream and cherry on top. It could have been a little thicker. They have the old soda fountain appliances which were fun to look at and they still use them. People were friendly.

This is just like the places I recall from the 1950s and 60s. Friendly folks. The prices are modern day, of course. Great strawberry shake.

We loved our visit here!! The owner (David) is amazing and spent about an hour talking to us about all things Andy Griffith. We went on a Friday, and it was not that busy. We stopped in on Saturday just to say hi and it was crazy busy. The banana split was fantastic. My husband had a cheeseburger and fries,... More

What a cute little main street in Mount Airy otherwise known as "Mayberry". After walking through some cute shops we decided to try Walker's soda Fountain for some ice cold lemonade. It was the best I've ever had. They were even willing to tell me how they made it. We didn't order any food but if their food was as... More

We visited Walkers Soda Fountain and had the BLT with a Coca-Cola. A choolate malt topped off the meal. Highly recommended.

I was just passing through and decided to stop for an ice cream. This place is a great bit of Americana. The whole town has great old time charm. Everyone was very nice. The ice cream was good. I had already eaten lunch, but interestingly enough I was told by two separate people in town that this place has the... More

Like a step back to the soda bar days. Service was quick and we had a good burger and blt. An old man volnteers there and just greets people and clears tables! The staff are friendly. The washroom is from years a go. It was clean but really out dated. I guess their codes allow it? I would go back... More
