Walker Brothers was highly recommended to us. We now know why. Don't be intimidated by the fancy atmosphere. This is a place for everyone, including families, at an affordable price. My son and I both had omelettes and both were great. These were real ingredients. The pancake syrup was nothing like I had ever tasted and very thick. The coffee... More

Ate pre-theatre at Marriott Lincolnshire. Very quiet at night but service is great and food outstanding and price point super. The atmosphere is warm and inviting.

This place is one of our fav breakfast place. I love the breakfast options and their hash browns are so good. Today we am having Western with Cheese Omellete and Cherry Crepes. Every month they have different monthly specials😀

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.
