Pancakes are great. Don't love puffy omlettes.

This is a local favorite and there are always lines on the weekends. Their pancakes and combo meals are delicious and a great value. If you like puffy omlettes, this is the place. Personally I prefer the

Walker Brother's has been a household name for breakfast in Glenview, Illinois for many years. The quality of food is always consistent. I ordered an omelette with ham, extra cheese and peppers with an English muffin toasted. The omelette was cooked well done to my liking with a little crisp on the bottom. I ordered extra cheese but they did... More

Beautiful breakfast place with the freshest of ingredients, great service, delicious food. Omelets, apple pancakes, German pancakes, French toast. Doesn't matter what you order--all is good. Coffee is good and fresh and plentiful. Real butter and cream. If you haven't been there you are missing something

This popular place suffers from long lines and waits on weekends. So it is popular. But it's not for me. All they have is breakfast stuff. The pancakes are good but are empty calories of bread and butter and syrup. The other entrees are similar. Huge omelets no one should eat! Anyone who cares about what they eat can go... More

The breakfasts are great. A wide variety of speciality including the Dutch, potato and ligonberry. Tremendous thick bacon. All worth the wait. A real treat.

You better be hungry when you go to Walker Brothers. You might have to wait in line a few minutes, but the food is really worth the short time in the waiting area. The crispy crunchy french toast is simply out of this world. Eggs Benedict choices are superb, and the potato pancakes are great. Even the oatmeal was mmm... More

They have the best pancakes and eggs. Their omelettes and hash browns are good also. We have been eating here for a long time and they are very consistent with their food and service.

Been coming to this location as well as the other 3 on the north side for many years. Don't recall every having anything other than an excellent breakfast/lunch. Fresh orange juice is consistently excellent. Very long wait on weekend. Even during the week, can be a line and limited parking in the smallish lot.

This was the 3rd or 4th visit here. I come back once a year, due to this being a favorite of my cousin's. Every month or two, a few of my relative's get together for breakfast, to chat on family updates, and to see what everyone, plus the kids & grand kids are up to. I remember my dislikes from... More
