If you are looking for atmosphere, this is not the place to come. However, if you are looking for good food, go to Walt's. I love pulled pork and their pork is delicious. They provide you with three different types of sauce, so you can choose the type that you like. Their other dishes are equally as good. The Brunswick... More

I ordered a carryout and when I looked in the bag it was not what I ordered. I told the cashier and she was very rude about it. If I hadn't paid with a credit card already, I would have left the order there. There was not a car in the parking lot, or a customer in the restaurant and... More

This used to be the absolute best place for BBQ in Cincinnati. Now that the new management has taken over, the portions have been GREATLY reduced, the prices have risen and the quality is poor. The meats (regardless of what you order) comes out dry, over cooked and Luke warm at best and stone cold at worst. It's such a... More

Went there once not long after BW3's went out. Dull dark atmosphere and the food was nothing to brag about. Decided to try it again after talking to a co-worker who wasn't crazy about the place, but said their wings wasn't bad as they were smoked, being their signature. Long and short...I asked the waiter (poorly dressed with a pack... More

Walt's Barbeque always serves up a hearty meal of savory barbeque with the traditional side dishes: greens, cornbread, baked beans, sweet potatoes, and the like. The restaurant is clean and pleasant, and parking is never a problem. This isn't a fine dining establishment; it's a place for a filling, down-home dinner.

It is touch and go at this place.Sometimes you get good sized portions,sometimes you do not.Something that never changes is the blind haired lady who always tries to rush me out the door and NEVER wants to give me extra napkins which is a necessity when you have Bar B Q.She always asks like Im asking her for extra food...

We took our young adult kids out to dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated right away and looking forward to a fun night out together. We had called earlier in the afternoon to confirm that they still offered a veggie burger for my vegetarian daughter, and the lady on the phone said yes. However, after we got there,... More

I love their BBQ sauce and have always stocked up on it when I travel to Ohio from Louisiana (they sell it at Jungle Jim's). I finally had a chance to stop in and try their BBQ on a recent trip. Ordered the Brisket and Rib combo with beans and slaw. The brisket was great and the ribs were good.... More

With the change in ownership they have struggled service has been lacking and food was often cold. Today's visit was better. Service was good and food was hot. Portion sizes are good. Hopefully this trend continues.
