My wife and I ate lunch here on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, during our first visit to Mt. Airy. Nice. Our sandwiches were tasty, and we enjoyed the decor. The service was good. One gentleman, I think his name was David, was especially friendly.

We are huge Andy Griffith fans so Walker's Soda Fountain was a must on our visit. We enjoyed looking at all of the photos. We also thoroughly enjoyed our ice cream and shake. Definitely recommend.
