The mounting anticipation from the Walkersville community came to an end last Monday March 6th in the morning when the Walkersville Diner opened up for business.
English teacher Eric Reickel visited that first morning. “I was the second customer! I’m thrilled that we now have a good breakfast place in Walkersville. I saw the WHS baseball team in there Saturday morning as well.”
The Walkersville Diner is located in the Walkers Village Shopping Center, directly across from the CVS. The town has been looking forward to the grand opening since their announcement in January.
The new diner provides a comfortable atmosphere for people from the Walkersville community to enjoy a delicious meal. Their hours are Monday-Sunday from 6am to 9pm.
They seem to serve a well-rounded variety of appetites, ranging from an assortment of breakfast foods to appealing appetizers to pastas, sandwiches, and burgers.
Senior Jack Chavez visited the diner on Tuesday evening and said, “The fries were perfectly salted and had a good crisp to them. The mayonnaise had a very unique flavor that made my taste buds stand in awe. You can tell the people making the food put as much love into preparing it as the entire Walkersville community put into its football team. #GoLions.”
Recent graduate of Walkersville High School and an involved member of the Walkersville community, McKenzie Mathis shared her experience at the diner. “I enjoyed my experience, the food and service was good. I think it will be very good for the community because everyone loves a small town diner. I think it will be successful and stay in business for a long time, unlike the other restaurants that have been in that same building. Overall, I think the diner fits Walkersville well.”
Senior Moroni Okonah enjoyed his food at the diner but had some criticism for the service. “My food was really good but the service was a little slow, probably because they were so busy. It was packed when I went; almost every table was full.”
Overall the feedback has been mostly positive and members of the Walkersville community are looking forward to many more trips to the Walkersville Diner.
