Had breakfast here this morning and were not disappointed. We had lived in this city 25 years ago and looked forward to our morning visits to W. Bros. 25 years later nothing has changed, always a great experience. Wish we could move back and visit here more often.

I've been there twice and the food has always been good. The hash browns with onion are fantastic as are the pancakes, egg dishes, french toast, etc. If I'm ever back in the area again, I will definitely go there. Best to go during the week, as there are long lines on the weekends.

My friend took me to this place for breakfast on a Sunday. It was packed but they do a great job of keeping the line moving and have quick service. The pancakes are amazing! And the potato pancakes are a must. Definitely a great place to have a hearty breakfast and very reasonably priced for the large portions.

Love the Santa Fe omlette as well as the consistently good fresh orange juice. There always seems to be a wait for a table, weekdays as well as weekends, also inadequate parking in the lot. You are allowed to park across the street at Ace Hardware but then it can be a bit of a problem crossing busy Waukegan Road.

I've eaten at Walker Brothers many times before, and enjoyed the food and décor. There is a terrific menu with a wide choice of pancakes, and eggs on it. The quality of all items and service continues to be excellent. The only reasons why I'm not giving Walker Brothers 5 stars is because my mother had to pay $2.50 extra... More

Everything was good. Pancakes, waffles as well as eggs and bacon. This restaurant is very crowded Saturday morning. Long wait for table because everyone likes it. Service was great. Just too many people.

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
