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

While visiting Mt. Airy, my husband and I decided to stop into Walker's for a soda. We enjoyed sharing a strawberry soda at an old fashion soda counter. Such fun and it brought back memories of our childhood. We didn't have anything other than the soda, which was delicious, but the burgers looked and smelled incredible.

I asked for a single scoop Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in a sugar cone. What I received was the largest single scoop I had ever received. Delicious too! The portions are plentiful. My friend had the Butter Pecan made with real Moonshine. He said it had a "whang" to it. Well, what do you expect...ice cream + moonshine. LOL So... More

This is a "must visit" if you go to Mount Airy. An old-fashioned soda fountain that was once a drug store, you can get a hand mixed soda, phosphate, float, shake or just ice cream. They also offer a lunch menu. The owners are extremely friendly and will fill you in on the history of the store as it relates... More

Love going down memory lane with this location. They had the counter and fountain drinks to match. We ordered cherry old fashion sodas. Presentation alone made them mouth watering and topped with a cherry.

We stopped at Walkers today for lunch! Ordered the lunch special, fresh made burgers, fries and shake. We had a peanut butter shake and a butter pecan shake! Both were extremely good. The burgers were fresh and we loved that they put shredded lettuce on them instead of a leaf of lettuce. Fries were MOT greasy, they were great too.... More

First time visitors...really enjoyed it! Place is a little small, but gives you a old school vibe. The HUGE mugs for coke flats really nice. Note to first timers, drink some of the coke 'before' moving your spoon...then stir away! Burgers a little on smallish side, but good! French fries good and salty! Can't wait to go back and try...
