Walker Bros. Breakfast Delight

If you are hungry for a Gigantic Apple Pancake or a Smotheringly Large German Pancake do not let the approx. 20 min. "when they are busy" preparation time deter you from getting either or both at Walker Bros. in Arlington Hts. These two are the reason to go to Walker Bros.! And a side of their... read more

Mostly people go to this pancake house for...the pancakes, which are great, especially the specialty items, like apple pancake and chocolate crepes. They're open in the evening, unlike some other pancake places, AND they have some non-breakfast items, like salads and sandwiches. We like to go in the evening when it's less crowded, even if we're having "breakfast food." The... More

This is a fantastic place to get breakfast but come on a Sunday or during a holiday and expect a long wait. The food is delicious and worth the wait though. Also, the prices are kind of high but that's to be expected for many reasons.

I love there eggs, best bacon, and pancakes. I would say that the bacon is by far the best I ever had at any restaurant. Orange Juice is fresh and extremely good! Eggs are fresh and I also get hash browns that come with onion if you like. For breakfast it is more expensive than most, but it will be... More

If you're looking for quality breakfast food with amazing coffee, this is the place! The food here is wonderful. The ingredients are fresh and there are a wide variety of options. My personal favorite is the French Toast. It is always cooked perfectly and is buttery. We have been going here for a while and have never had a bad... More

Whenever I visit friends in Chicago, we always go to Walker Bros for breakfast. The selection is fantastic and everything seems to be delicious. Fresh ingredients and massive portions, the service is friendly and I've never had to wait longer than about 2 mins for a table. Thoroughly recommend if you are in the area.

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.
