Fresh ingredients, unbelievable variety, breakfast just does't get any better. I love the 49 ers, or the potato pancakes. Their apple pancake is the best, without the extra wait. Sometimes the line can be long, but usually moves quickly.

I've been to this restaurant A handful of times over the past couple of years. The pancakes are consistently good… Fluffy and without the need for any syrup. I especially like the banana pancakes. My only concern about this restaurant is that there is always, always a 15 to 20 minute wait. I guess that means it's good, but sometimes... More

Great omelets (leftovers home). Great pancakes. Great eggs Benedict. Good service. So so coffee. Go early or be prepared to wait in line. Sometimes the line is out the door.

Walker Bros is my favorite breakfast restaurant in the Chicagoland area!!! My favorite item to order is the German Pancake or Dutch Baby (if I only want the smaller version). I also like their omelets, either the Bacon and Chedar or the Santa Fe (which I have to order without the habanero cheese as it is too spicy with it.... More

I'm a huge lover of pancakes and I saw a couple of reviews online about this particular place but what I received was beyond compare. Their western oven baked omelette was delicious and cooked to perfection. I've never had one before but it was mouth watering to say the least. I tried the blueberry pancakes and I didn't even need... More

I have been to Walker Bros. In Wheeling several times and have always been very pleased with what I ordered! I have had their pancakes as well as their egg omletts and was always happy with what I got . Everything is always fresh and delicious, the service is great and the restaurant is clean and appealing!

Walker Brothers will put any other pancake restaurant to shame, with its amazing cinnamon apple pancake and the gorgeous, antique stained glass windows, lighting fixtures, and wooden finishes. I grew up in the area and was excited to return; but I was thrilled to find that the food quality, the excellent service, and the beautiful furnishings have all remained exactly... More

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
