While we do go to WB occasionally for breakfast as a family, we often go here for breakfast fare at dinner time. The grandkids prefer pancakes anyway. In the evening, WB is not crowded, so you avoid the normal wait elsewhere. WB (intentionally) does not have internet and orange juice is served in an unappealing water glass, but the food... More

The food is terrific which is why the demand for this place is off the charts. If you see a long line, do not panic - the place does a great job of quick turnover.

Every time I visit Chiacgo, I ask my daughter when are we going to Walker Bros. It is simply the best breakfast you can have. I ordered the 7 pieces of bacon breakfast, with their Habanero hash browns. Everything on their menu is great from their fresh squeezed orange juice to their fantastic waffles, I promise you will not leave... More

We had breakfast here 4 times during our stay in Chiacgo. Service is fast and breakfast is great. Tried something different each day. Now on Sunday, yes, there was a line out the door. Took about 20 mins to get in, but they do move fast to accommodate guests. Our severs were all nice and pleasant . Pancakes , omletes... More

Walker Bros. Is in the class of Portillos and Lou Malnatis. When the kids come home you have to go. Everything at Walker Bros. Is really good. Real cream real butter the best sausages and bacon. I have never had the apple pancake, but for 30+ years my family members rave about it. Not cheap but worth every penny.

If you want an excellent selection of breakfast foods, this is a very good place to go. And, you haven't lived until you've had their Apple Pancake (which is big enough to feed you for 3 days). The service is always good. For some reason, I feel the service and the freshness of the food is actually better when it's... More

We've been going to this Walker Brothers location since it opened; I remember when it was a Ground Round! Anyway, there is a reason why we've been coming here for over 20 years, it's the best place around for breakfast! They use quality ingredients and everything is yummy. I think I've tried almost all the breakfast items there; my favorites... More

I was encouraged to try the Dutch Baby German pancake here having never had one before. I didn't know what to expect but I figured it was going to be filling! I enjoyed it without any extra powdered sugar nor the lemon juice offered, and it was delicious and filling. The Dutch baby comes alone, so to balance out my... More

Love the blueberry pancakes and apple pancake! Best place for breakfast anytime of day. Wait for a table on Saturday or Sunday can be long so be patient!
