Best homemade pizza in town. Small but fresh salad bar & a variety of Italian dishes. They also serve some Mexican food. Local family owned and operated. Wonderful margaritas!

Stopped here for dinner on a drive from IL to FL. About 1 1/2 miles off the highway but well worth the detour. Got right on at about 8:00 on a Sat night and the food was excellent! Jackie our server was fantastic, and especially great with two road-weary kids. I had the flatiron steak and Asiago pasta which was... More

We have eaten at Walt's for years now and it has always been a good experience. You can't beat the price for the buffet and they keep it well stocked along with the salad bar. Don't forget the margaritas! You will not find a better one in town! Thanks Walt's for all of the great meals and service!

Skip the deep dish and go right for the double decker. Salad bar may not look like much but it's quality and very yummy. Only down side is sometimes they get real busy and the service is a little slow, very rarely does this happen.

We have been to Walt's a few times and always found everything very much to our liking. However, on our last visit, we ordered steaks and they were not as good as expected. :( The pasta,appetizers, salad bar and drinks are excellent. They are known for their pizzas which we have not tried as yet

We enjoyed a last minute pick up order. Even two picky kids were pleased with perfectly prepared pizza and italian beef sandwiches. The calzones were hot and the crust was crispy and tender.

This place and I have a lot of history. Been eating there since 1979. Love the double decker pizza. Love that you see Walt there helping out. Has a great outdoor patio.

We dropped in on Walts with a party of thirteen on a Wednesday night. The staff did a great job of taking care of such a large group. Food was good and reasonably priced.

Don't miss this local favorite. This pizza and pasta ( along with other items ) at it's best. I love their salad bar which has only the freshest ingredients and their taco nachos. Oh my. Treats for everyone.

We ordered a pizza from Walt's based on a recommendation by one of the hotel staff and I'd say it was pretty good. The crust was good and not too thin, the sauce had a nice taste but not sweet. The mushrooms were fresh mushrooms and the cheese was very good. The only drawback might have been the sausage which... More
