Great bar-b-q

Is not located in the mecca of good restaurants (in Mt. Airy) but the location is safe to the best of my knowledge. This place has very, very good bar-b-q and it well worth checking out.

It was good value (only $13 for meal and a beer), and their sauce was great. I got the pulled pork sandwich and was disappointed at the amount of fat cuts that were included. I ended up discarding half the meat because it was pure fat and essentially had a bread sandwich with bbq sauce. Staff were really friendly.

This place was fantastic! Portions are huge, prices are reasonable, and it was all so good. Almost everyone in our group ended up taking some home as leftovers. There are 3 Bbq sauce flavors on the table so you can put your own amount on- I really liked the Carolina. Can't wait to go back!

We ate here at least a few times. Sometimes we order takeout. The prices I have seen are on the increase. The food overall is average. Service was excellent, cleanliness was also average. My oldest son liked the pulled pork dinner. My husband liked the baked chicken. My youngest son liked chicken fingers. Overall the restaurant is fine.

To quote Toby Keith, "I ain't as good as I once was - I got a few years on me now But there was a time.." Unfortunately, this sentiment echoes through other reviewers writings and my personal experience, just this past week. Tried Walt's BBQ for the first time, last week and was thoroughly disappointed. The place was empty when... More

This place used to be really good, I even had my wedding rehearsal dinner here. but in the past few years, it has slipped in quality and value for the money while raising prices. Go to Eli's instead, or one of the many newer BBQ establishments.

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
