I love this place.

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.

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

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.
