Throw back to the days of drive in movies and soda pop fountains. The food isn't fancy (if you want that take a very short walk right next door to John's Seafood). A menu with a mixture of fast food (hot dogs & hamburgers) as well as old time southern home cooking (chicken pie, stew and etc). Reasonably priced. No... More

We took the back roads to the beach, and we stopped at Walters for lunch. I got the BBQ along with collard greens, which were delicious! One of my boys ordered the cheeseburger, and my other son, who was in a nasty mood, (age 6) finally settled on the chicken tenders. The gentleman who served us (presumably Walter?) told my... More

Great local restaurant. We love stopping in for burgers and hot dogs along with a game of checkers. Walls filled with local memorabilia.

Good food, great service! Open on Mondays! Big bonus! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great choice between plates, sandwiches, soups, and salads, there are quite a few selections for the area.

Walters is a classic small town hotdog joint that has some of the best hotdogs you'll ever eat. Try the hotdogs and fries, or the chicken salad plate or sandwich if you're wanting to eat healthier !

Walter's is a regular stop for locals, where good home cooking and friendly banter are regular fare. Table service, plus a breakfast buffet on Saturdays. No alcohol served, but pictures of moonshine stills and lawmen adorn the walls.

I got a hotdog and fried okra and they were both fantastic! The service was only okay(we ran out of our drinks more than once and had to go up front to get our check), but the prices are great and the food is even better.

We stopped there today on the way from Raleigh to Elizabeth City via 158 as we wanted a leisurely ride and to see the countryside rather than just see lots of trees lining the hiway on the interstate.

We stopped into Walter's because we like to try local eateries. The staff at Walter's is very friendly, and service is good. Decor is nothing fancy, but the place gets a lot of business from the local people. I had a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich which was very good. My wife went for the traditional Southern faire of Hushpuppies, fried... More
