We were there on the 4th of July weekend and it was crowded. The soda fountain was very busy and the owner along with all the employees were working very hard but they were behind on the orders. I had fun teasing with the owner while he was working. He was a very fine man with a good sense of humor. and the milkshake was worth the wait.

We came here twice in one day. The service is great & everything from the handcrafted sodas, to ice cream floats to sandwiches were awesome! Reasonable prices, too

Finally found Walker Soda Fountain open on this visit to Mt Airy on Sunday June 29 but was not too impressed with the place . It had a sunny smell as soon as I walked into the building and so I just took some pics of the walls and the people making sundaes or splits for a few customers at the booths. Then went to Miss Angels Hillbilly Ice Creamer for my afternoon sweet treat!

I'm sorry that you were not impressed with us. Unfortunately this building is over a 100 years old and has a dirt basement, when it is damp outside it will sometimes have an old smell, however if you had stayed and tried one of our ice cream soda's or malts I have no doubt you would have loved it or even been impressed.

Stopped in here both days we were in Mt. Airy. Got a shake & ice cream. All of the food and ice cream was reasonably priced. Not the usual tourist prices. They make their shakes homemade too. Nice place to stop by!

A step back into the past. Enjoyed the food and the milkshakes were delicious. Really enjoyed it, and will defiantly be back.
