“Awesome banana splits!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

On our 1st visit to Mayberry we stopped in and split a banana split. On June 13th we got married at the old Mayberry courthouse and Walkers was gracious enough to let us bring in our close friends and family to share in banana splits for all. They ordered lunch and ice creams and we had a wonderful time. I love this place and the owners are awesome. I just asked if it would be possible to bring in about 10 if us and they had us tables set up and everything. No long waits and the food and if course the banana splits are Awesome! Thank you Walkers Soda shop!

“I love the Hot Dogs here!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The hot dogs are wonderful here! You must try them and affordable! They have wonderful chili as well and Chicken Salad. The Food is fast and you need to also get a Malt or milkshake. You will love the old Soda jerk and atmosphere in this place!

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We made our first trip to this sofa fountain on 7/28. We were there after a lunch rush and surprised at how messy the place was. We decided to get a shake to go and it was average at best. Not the experience we were looking for.

“Yummy”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Great ice cream sundaes and milkshakes. Our friends ordered a malted shake, which you can't get everywhere and said it was as good as they had ever had. It reminds me of ones I used to go to as a child.

“Great milkshakes”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

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.
