Bottoms up: Thirsty Thursdays at Walters

Every night at Walters is a celebration. Start your week off right with Margarita Mondays followed by Tequila Tuesdays, Whiskey Wednesdays, Thirsty Thursdays, Finest Fridays and all-day happy hour Saturday and Sunday.

With a good deal every night what is a girl to do? Well, these girls decided that after a long day, Thirsty Thursday was just the ticket.

We made our way into the blissfully air-conditioned restaurant leaving the muggy 103-degree weather outside.

We were greeted by the friendly wait staff and were given the choice of where to sit. With 4 full bars, 3 fire pits, a large patio and 4 indoor dining areas—that choice isn’t as easy as it sounds.

We decided on the indoor bar area opting not to head back outside. The cool interior and lavish bar was cozy yet sophisticated.

In our opinion, Thirsty Thursday is one of the best of all the incredible deals at Walters. It features half off all drinks and appetizers all night long.

While we had both previously been to Walters, neither of us had visited since they began their new specials. We both decided on Sangria to start, we love the spicy-sweetness of this drink.

Then we ordered 2 of our favorites: the Bolawnies and the Afghan Fries. Bolawnies are dough pockets stuffed with ground beef, potatoes and onions that are served with a yogurt sauce. They also come with 2 choices of chutney. The combo of the yogurt and chutneys make the perfect dipping sauce. The fries are sliced potatoes, dipped in a special batter and then deep-fried. Though they’re served with ketchup, we love them dipped in the same sauces as the Bolawnies.

We then had to try the Hummus Bi Tahini, which was as filling as advertised, and the Mozzarella and Tomato Salad to balance out all of the fried foods we had so voraciously consumed.

Once we had stuffed ourselves to the point of no return, we decided that we should order dessert. When we first entered the restaurant Jenelle exclaimed, “Yay! Baklava,” so it only seemed natural to order the flaky honey-saturated pastry. It did not disappoint and there wasn’t a crumb to be seen once we had finished. We also noticed the sweet cinnamon treats went rather well with our spicy sangrias.

As the server set down the bill we both looked at each other and at our table full of dishes and thought, what have we done? We both prepared for the worst and were flabbergasted when we saw the bill. For less than $30, we had eaten and drank a multitude of scrumptious, exotic treats.

Walters has specials every night of the week. To learn more, check out their website at or visit the restaurant at 310 N. Yale Ave. Claremont.

Don't mean a thing if it ain't got that zing.
