Walt's is a Wilmington staple for fried chicken. The chicken is hot and crispy with just enough season. We just each chicken and rolls - we don't need any sides...

Wow I read all the reviews and I didn't believe that the fried chicken could be that good but I was wrong. The chicken is so delicious,crispy and seasoned well. On top of that the customer service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. I can't wait to return and share with others.

Deliciously sinful fried chicken. Absolutely best in town. Good choices of sides and desserts. Friendly service. Freshly fried chicken boxed hot and flavorful. Soul food supreme.

The fried chcicken is out of this world. I didn't care much for the sides or than the French fries. It is take out only. Small place, clean, and the service is amazing.

Local takeout fried chicken with a couple outdoor tables. Inner city on-street parking is sometimes difficult, there is no parking lot. Right around the corner from a KFC but it's worth the extra effort to get quality chicken, tasty like gramma used to make. Just a little bit too salty for my taste but overall delicious. Lot's of great and... More

In the heart of Wilmington,a small place with good fried chicken. Nothing fancy or special about the establishment. But better than going to the fast food chains. You can taste that it is a recipe of originality. MAC and Cheese was very good. I am not crazy about bananas, but their banana pudding is very good. I really enjoyed my... More
