The restaurant has been around since 1969. I just visited and had a sandwich for the first time ever. I am going back. Quaint little diner tucked in a big office building now.

Really great local place to eat. Great food and very friendly staff. Roast beef is delicious but specials look good too.

Great homespun cafeteria feel. Comfort food in the form of roast beef sandwiches (better than Arby's), burgers and fries better than BK or Mc's, you get the idea. The owners are ever present making sure every customer is happy. Go find that feeling at a chain. Worth the trip.

I love roast beef commercials/hot sandwiches. Had a couple of bad experiences in ordering these at other restaurants. so I thought I would try wally's FAMOUS roast beef after dropping my son and family off at the airport. Bad mistake!!!! First it is a fast food restaurant, that's ok I guess if the food is good. It was awful.... Most... More

This place, hidden inside an office building, promised to be a good find. Instead, I'm terribly disappointed. The friendly service is the only redeeming factor. The food was disappointing. Go to Arby's. You'll get a roast beef sandwich that is tastier, juicier and even warmer! (Mine was dry, lukewarm and flavorless.) The fries weren't bad, but I can get good... More

This is a classic traditional hamburger place with the roast beef taking center stage. The roast beef sandwich is a similar size to an Arby's but with twice the flavor. I had the onion rings which were great and they also serve shakes. I can recommend the horse raddish sauce. This is a great place for lunch but it is... More

This isn't even in the same league with other faster food places - keep in mind it is a diner in office building. The roast beef is so tender, lean and flavorful. Loved the mashed potatoes too. Good service with a smile. If you are ever in the area and need a fast meal that doesn't taste fast, you must... More

Went there for late lunch with my family. We got 3 different roast beef sandwiches and a wally's Meatloaf sandwich. Roast beef was great, so was the meatloaf but it was on the dry side. Only reason I am giving them 4 star is because they don't offer any thing to add to their sandwiches like vegetables or sauces, as... More
