Best Breakfast!!!

This restaurant has the best breakfast, hands down!!! The food is always delicious, GREAT PANCAKES! Excellent coffee, great service! This location has a cozy, antique feel to it with stained-glass windows and old-world-fashioned lamps and artwork.

Walker Brothers is best enjoyed when not counting calories and being willing to indulge a bit. We just left after a breakfast of baked omelettes, pancakes, and bacon and may not be able to eat again until tomorrow! The items are unique and delicious and the prices were fair. I would recommend avoiding the busy times as you wait in... More

This is one of our favorites. Although there is often a line to get in, it moves quickly and the food is worth the wait. They have delicious pancakes, omelets, potato pancakes and waffles. The omelets are football sized made with fresh ingredients. The sides of bacon are crisp when requested, and the corned beef hash is delicious. They have... More

I have been going to Walkers Brothers various locations for 30 years. They are the best for breakfast. Their prices have gotten a bit high so we have cut back our visits but we also to purchase the holiday gift cards for a bonus gift card. We are on their email list so we do get their special notifications monthly.... More

Classic Americana breakfast spot. It does have a diner-like feel, but is more of a formal restaurant. Going during breakfast time is very hard because there is usually quite a line to get in. The staff is friendly and prompt, and the food is typically good. I would not say that the food is of a high quality, but you... More

The food was really good, until the smell of something burning started. Off and on the whole time we were there. We were seated right near the kitchen, very smoky, this is the second time this has happened in about a month. Sounds picky, but just trying to give info if this would be a problem for customers. The girl... More

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 specially prepared bacon eaten... More
