pretty good

It was a good place if you like breakfast food, which I'm not a fan of, but the pancakes pretty darn good

There are many well known breakfast places in the Wheaton/Carol Stream area, but we always come to Red Apple. The food is always delicious and the prices are right, with the most reasonable breakfast in town and a great atmosphere. In the past, the chocolate chip pancakes were my favorite (yes, I as an adult still love chocolate chip pancakes)... More

Awesome that's really all I can say. Had the western skillet. It says 2 eggs and the fixings. Holy crap nice skillet served piping hot and 4 eggs on every meal.

Great family restaurant. My girls love the french toast sticks. I love the biscuits and gravy. If you go on the weekend be prepared to wait.

Lobster Benedict and any omelette are our favorite choices at this place. Have never had a disappointing meal here. Staff will get your order right and is very speedy. Weekends are busiest but the tables turn pretty quickly. Portions are huge. Prices are reasonable.

My husband and I visited last week and we tried the basic french toast breakfast 2X2X2. I really liked that they have thick cut bacon and it was cooked perfectly.

Love finding places that serve only breakfast and lunches. I for one like to sleep in at times (especially while traveling). Hard to find a good breakfast late in the morning or early afternoon My friend suggested this restaurant and I was quite pleased with the large variety menu. Juice/coffee/french toast (9 varieties) and bacon was my choice. Good one... More

Red Apple has wonderful choices for breakfast. Portions are HUGE! There is plenty of food to share! Be prepared for a long wait on weekends. But while you are waiting, ask if you can put in your order for the Apple Pancake. It takes 30 minutes, so your wait will be just long enough to have your plate of deliciousness... More

Why I haven't mentioned this place before is beyond my comprehension but let me say my husband and I have frequented this restaurant for years and it just gets better and better. Saturday mornings at Red Apple has been one of our favorite dates for quite some time. Plan to come to have your hunger satisfied in a big way,... More

We LOVE this place. They have the best breakfast and lunch selections & service around. If you order two eggs, you receive four (at least all the times we've been there). Service is wonderful and owners are almost always on site.
