Everything is delicious. Kona coffee is the best. All quality ingredients used. German pancakes are delicious! Apple pancake too

I have been to over 10 different original pancake houses around the country always ordering the one and the only "Apple Pancake!" This is how I rate this restaurant. Here in Glenview I have determined that it is second to only the original original pancake house in Portland OR. It was huge and delicious with lots of apples and cinnamon... More

Even though this is one of a small chain it is a notch above all other pancake house. They have way more then just pancakes. Try the German Apple Pancake or the Swedish Lemon Pancake, they are to die for.

Manager was terrible. Rude and unwelcoming. Love the apple pancakes but not enough to be treated in such a rude fashion. I hope that this issue is addressed. We had a party of 9 and walked away. I expect to be treated with respect and common curtesy. Please walker bros. address this issue

Walker Bros. has a very good and interesting menu, and great service. The senior special is a great value. Nice variety of pancakes and eggs. Good for any meal including breakfast, lunch or dinner, and great coffee!

The ambience isn't anything special -- it's a pancake house with booths and tables in a low-frills setting. But the staff is friendly and there's a yummy gluten-free menu that offers delicious gluten-free pancakes and waffles. (Cue the chorus of angels singing.) The price is right, the service is good and the coffee is hot. Not a healthy meal but,... More

I love going here for breakfast. I really like the coffee they make and they always serve it with cream which tastes great. I love to order the eggs Florentine and my husband gets the buttermilk pancakes. My son likes to order strips of bacon. We don't go very often because your calories pile up pretty quickly eating here but... More

I've always loved Walker Bros, since I was a kid- and while I eat a little differently now than I did then, the food is still delicious, and it comes out quick. The line moves fast (it's really a line- they don't take names), and we got there at 8:30 am, and were done by 9:15. Perfect for small kids.... More

This place is going to be a regular stop whenever I'm in Chicagoland. Only one of the six people at our table who ordered this beast could finish it. I'll share with my wife next time.

Wow... Just wow... with my mouth wide open. What an absolutely fantastic breakfast/brunch place! It's one the best, if not the best, breakfast place in the area. Walker Brothers has an extensive menu with all the breakfast items you can imagine plus more. I love the apple cinnamon pancake and I highly recommend it. But beware, it's not one of... More
