“Obviously Popular, but lackluster experience”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I noticed a sign on the highway boasting about Walton's hushpuppies and was intrigued. I stopped by for dinner on a week day night as the parking lot was full. The crowd seemed to be mostly older locals, and there was an amateur band tuning up in the next dining room. This is the kind of basic, nothing fancy, home-owned restaurant you often encounter in various tourist (fishing and hunting) areas.

I ordered smoked catfish with the waitress-recommended cajun seasoning, baked beans, and hot mustard slaw. The server delivered a basket of the famous hushpuppies before the meal, and there were two more on the plate. The catfish seemed overcooked, the baked beans out of the can, and the slaw, which was certainly quite spicy hot, seemed to be made with pre-packaged minced (not shredded) slaw which was completely flavorless. The hushpuppies are tasty, and I suspect their slightly sweet flavor is what makes them unique.

Looking around the room I saw lots of happy eaters, so I concluded that one should stick to the basics in this restaurant - fried food or steak and potatoes. Prices are reasonable.
