Let me first say I root for the non-chain, ma and pa places to do well; I go to these places whenever I can. That said I paid $8.50 (which included ~ 18% tip) for a tuna melt and fries. That's it, 1 small tuna melt on rye, about the size of your regular piece of wonder bread, and crappy,... More

I visited Wally's for lunch last week and had the Italian grilled cheese (provolone, tomato, and spinach for the colors of the flag) and the tomato basil soup. As usual, the service was fast and friendly, and lunch was great. The tomato basil soup was good, but in my opinion it just can't beat their homemade chicken noodle. My companions... More

Great sandwiches and soup - definitely a great place for lunch in downtown Saginaw. My favorite is their delicious chicken noodle soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. While the atmosphere isn't anything spectacular, it's a clean restaurant with fast, friendly service. Wally's makes it possible to have a good, hot lunch even if you only have a half-hour break!

So, I am writing another review to hopefully highlight this little diner. One of the very few places in downtown Saginaw to get a meal! And they have some great selections from sandwiches, soups, to full dinners. A few desserts are always on the menu and the cinnamon rolls are wonderful. The place has more parking now, located right next... More

Lived/Worked in Saginaw all my life, had never been to Wally's until yesterday, when a few of us went there for lunch. Sandwiches were good, nothing spectacular, but everything was fresh and tasted good. Service was VERY attentive and friendly. Just as we were finishing, our waitress asked if we wanted dessert. I'm not much of a dessert eater, but... More

Finally had lunch here. Spouse has lunch here a couple times a month, and I needed to check it out--he is always raving about it. So, midweek, about 11:30 AM, we had lunch. The owners and staff were exceptionally attentive, friendly, gracious. Food was really good. I had a Tuna Melt and he had their "wonderful" Cuban sandwich. Their Homemade... More
