We went on a sunday morning and the wait for a table was about 30 minutes. Once seated we never felt rushed even though we knew there were others waiting like we did. My chocolate chip pancakes were amazing. I never had to ask to have my coffee refilled. service was exceptional. We have been many times and will return

Always good and always reliably good food and service. If you can get past having to wait in line on weekends you will enjoy just about anything on the menu. This is truly an establishment.

Walker Brothers has been my favorite Chicago Suburb breakfast spot. I had moved away from the Chicago area for some time already. On a recent trip back my wife and two friends met up for breakfast. Everything was as good as I expected from my past. The best Corned Beef Hash I have had anywhere, good Coffee, very good Pancakes... More

Trying to decide on a restaurant for a relaxed, yummy breakfast today, we went here. A bit further from us than other Walker Bros., but husband chose this one. Walker food is always excellent, but today our server was Sergio, and that made our morning even better. What a wonderful person! Very attentive, made sure everything was just right. Ask... More

Yes they do have some options on their menu. You can get GF pancakes and other items depending on the day. The place does a brisk business. Considering it is higher priced than other breakfast spots.

Walker Bros is my go-to place for pancakes. I've been to a number of locations in the Chicago area. This one is great - bigger than it looks from the outside. It has good service and great pancakes. You can eat breakfast all day long, and who wouldn't want to when you can have bacon pancakes. This place makes the... More

We've eaten here for decades. The apple pancake is my all time favorite. Hot melty cinnamon apple goodness. It takes longer to prepare than other menu items, but well worth the wait. The German pancake is also good. Their omelettes are generous and fluffy. There can be a wait at certain times, but it's worth it. They also sell frozen... More

Walker Bros. is always a hit! I don't even know where to start. The food is excellent! The eggs, bacon, omelettes, apple pancakes, chocolate chippies, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, oh my goodness...you just can't go wrong! There is too much to list! The portions are great, we always have left overs. The service is always impeccable. This is the... More

As is with all of their restaurants the food is excellent. Always a wait to be seated but if you can wait 1/2 hour or more it is worth it I have had pancakes, waffles, eggs and have taken home the Apple Pancake, never a bad time.
