Well telling friends you go to walker brothers makes them jelous. You always have to wait in line to get a table but i think its worth it. There is a lot to choose from and it is really good. You can get typical american pancakes or waffles or bacon...... and if you want to try the huge specialty... read more

After hearing legendary tales of this restaurant for years, I was very disappointed in the entire experience. On a weekday for breakfast, the lot was packed with lines out the door, but we didn't wait too long for a table. We were seated at a booth for two and ordered the apple pancake and an order of bacon to split.... More

First time at Walker's although my Wife grew up on them. The blueberry pancakes were excellent. My Wife had the German cake, I think it's called, and this was excellent also. I'd go back there in a flash.

I have been coming here all of my life and it was only until I moved away to another country did I truly appreciate it's greatness. This is one of the best breakfast places in the world! Get the apple pancake, even if it's just for the table to share it as a starter it is so good. I have... More

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
