My first experience with Walt's Barbecue was exactly what everyone had told me to expect. It truly was one of the best barbecue restaurants i have ever visited, and considered their food to be in the Top 5 of any i had tasted. This was about 1-1/2 yrs. ago and remember it like it was yesterday. Unfortunately this is no... More

I was just ok. Think we ordered the wrong stuff. My boyfriend and I shared the nacho - which was actually chips with nacho stuff on it. A warning would have been nice. They we shared the beef brisket, which was VERY tender and juicy, but we could have been given like 20% more BEEF. Sides were fries and collards... More

I went with 8 other friends and this place did not disappoint, I had their signature BBQ Ribs, Spicy smoked sausage link, mac n cheese and ohhh that sweet potato casserole ( that has pecans)! Also try their sweet tea, I promise you will love it! The... More

We decided to give Walt's a try after looking online. It was worth the stop. I had a combo platter with sausage, brisket, and chicken. The portion sizes were large and filling. The sides were given as much attention as the main dishes. We had a great waitress that never let the glasses get empty the entire night. They also... More

Ever since Walt sold the business and retired, the prices have gone up and the food quality has gone down. The new corporate owners are not holding their employees or food to Walt's standards. The servers are still as friendly and prompt as before.

The ribs are still excellent,everything else though has went down hill. A place that at one time served some of the best bbq in the Greater Cincy area is just now average or below at best.I think they are experiencing some upper management issues with the place and thats causing there quality of food in general to suffer. I will... More

This was an awful experience. Showed up at 6:30 for dinner, was seated at 7:15, offered drinks at 7:45 and did not have food at 9pm. Ended up leaving without food at 9p. Waitress did an awful job of letting us know what was going on. Waitress brought out cold appetizers, and then when asked about where the food was,... More

I ate at Walt's for the first time over the July 4th weekend and I liked it. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was tasty and the three choices of BBQ sauce were quite good. It came with a bag of chips, a very small cup of coleslaw, a pickle and a drink for $5. I believe that is... More

We eat there and had poor slow service, inferior quality and management did not seem to be concerned. The manager called my wife after i left a review, and not my cell number which I left and told her he would send a gift card which we did not receive. We returned with friends last night thinking we would try... More
