Great people. Food was so good. Small but so neat inside. It was great experience to set inside on a bar stool and just watch them cook . Had a real family feel.

Finding decent breakfast restaurant in Farmville can be tricky unless you are satisfied with fast food or greasy gas station places. So when we finally tried Walker's Diner, we had a pleasant surprise. We had the basic breakfast - eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast and coffee and it absolutely hit the spot! Great service and prices, nice atmosphere and even... More

Though my husband and motherly in law enjoyed their food I was unimpressed worth my cheese fries. The cheese was grainy and the fries weren't something to rave about. The restauraunt is small, but has a nice atmosphere. I won't say I'll never go back because I'd love to try something else but never again the cheese fries.

There were three eateries in eyesight of each other. We just picked one and I'm glad that I choose Walker's. Was greeted with a cheerful "Good Morning and Welcome to Walker's". The food was very good, as was the service and the other customers. Their Kettle Corn was very good also. They give samples and they prepare it on site.... More

I ate breakfast here one time; I won't be going back. I see a lot of customers there at lunchtime, so I'll give them credit for their lunch food; but breakfast was bad. I ordered country ham and eggs, which came with fried potatoes; country ham is an acquired taste, so I won't bother rating it; but any restaurant that... More

Featured on Food Network, once you go there you will know why they searched them out.. Known for their burgers they also cook their own briskets for fantastic Ruben sandwiches as well as roast their own Turkeys for more than just sandwiches. We had a Fire & Ice salad of watermelon, and jalapeno peppers and what a gastronomic treat. Home... More

the quintessential diner. It is tiny - maybe 8 seats? Popularized on television last year after a make over that expanded seating to outside/ Great for typical diner-fare. Corned beef was especially good. Usually a crowd due to the miniscule size. feel lucky if you manage to snag a pair of seats on a weekend.
