Large great tasting meal

Beware - they serve a lot of good quality food at very good prices. Hard to decide which dish to choose. Alpine was excellent.

We stop here frequently when we are in the Wheaton area and it has always been predictably very good!

We took my mom here for a birthday brunch. The food was delicious and there was a lot of it! Most of us split meals and there was plenty! The food was above average - we enjoyed the omelettes and the scrambles. The pancakes were hot and fluffy and the toppings were tasty. Overall a very good experience. One tip:... More

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.
