If you are a breadfast eater, then you must go to Eggheadz cafe. In the past 2 months, I have had their omelettes, skillet breakfasts and eggs benedict. All three meals were way above average if not terrific! We do not live in Tinley Park, but will drive the Eggheadz to have a great breakfast. Get their early or you... More

Eggheadz is always crowded which is always a good sign, and if you go there you will understand why it is so popular. There are many items on the menu and all that I've tried for both breakfast and lunch are excellent. Prices are reasonable, food is tasty, and portions are big. I especially like their home made soups and... More

I've tried several dishes here, all good. My favorite is the Hey Ricky skillet, awesome. Nearly as good as the Greek Frittata from Blackberry (now closed). Coffee is always filled, prices aren't bad.

This is a nice family oriented place for large portions and good food. I had the red velvet pancakes and the italian skillet. The red velvet pancakes are to die for if you are a sweet lover. This is definitely a place to go try.

Gatto's has several locations now but we frequent the one in Tinley Park which is the original restaurant. I am a full-blooded Italian and love my pasta and sauce and I think that's the only thing I can say I don't care for at Gatto's......I'm not a fan of their pasta sauce. It's not a true marinara, it's more like... More

I absolutely love this place!!! Their breakfast is amazing. One of my favorite things to get is their Navajo Skillet. They also have different kinds of juices and smoothies, which are delicious. This place can get really busy, but it just goes to show much much everyone likes it!

Real eggs... Good steak.. Sunday morning 6:30 am, I was in the parking lot starving.. My free day to eat anything I want and so steak was on my mind. I ordered well done which means burnt to many resturants but not here.

We met family there for breakfast after church. It gets very crowded. Most of our party had breakfast and some of us had lunch. The portions were very generous. Everything was very good. I had a veggie burger and it was freshly made as were all the condiments. Kid friendly. My grandson had Mickey Mouse pancakes. Vegan friendly. They got... More

They do everything well and the way you want it. Want your egg over medium, basted, sunny side up? They will do it right. Bacon crispy? Just perfect. The portions are always larger than you expect. For lunch, if your order comes with soup, say you want a cup of soup or you will get a huge bowl. When I... More
