Great old fashion pancake house or what we called in Chicago a family restaraunt!

Had a girls lunch her and kicking myself for not checking it out sooner. No wonder the parking lot is always full. They have plenty of room for everyone inside! The food is amazing breakfast/lunch. Big,big portions, you will most likely be taking leftovers home!

While I did enjoy my meal at Red Apple, I will definitely have to order less food next time. The portions are huge and for me, the food is heavy. My mother in law and I ordered the same thing - - - scrambled eggs, potato pancakes, and sausage. She somehow almost ate everything. I made a dent. I loved... More

Breakfasts are the best. From pancakes to bacon and eggs. All done great along with the service. Can be very crowded around lunch.

If a great breakfast is on your to do list, this is the place to go. The Red Apple not only has the best pancakes and French toast, but offers wonderful Eggs Benedicts, giant omelets, Blintz's, and double yoke eggs! We dine here almost every Friday morning! For the best bang for your buck and a delicious meal, head to... More

Whenever we are in the area we stop at this restaurant. It is hard to pick a favorite dish. All of their eggs are double yolk! If you order egg benedict you will have two big slices of ham with 4 egg yolks. If you order plain eggs-be prepared-4 double yolks. I recently had crepes with caramel sauce and pecans.... More
