I've been to many of the breakfast restaurants in the Orland/Tinley area, but none are as good as Eggheadz! The food here is excellent! My wife loves the Pancakes and Waffles. The flight of pancakes is one of her favorites! I'm more of a savory guy, I love the omelets and other savory breakfast choices. My favorite being the country... More

The food was good, I find them extremely expensive! I had a gluten-free waffle with a side of turkey sausage, and a cup of coffee. $19???? Ridiculous. I don't understand why people would spend so much money just for breakfast. It is always crowded and I just don't get it...

If you want to eat here on a Sunday morning, get here plenty early! We tried several weekends in a row and the line was insanely long. We decided to go on a weekday and much shorter line. I have tried numerous things from their French toast to the Denver omelet to pancakes. Everything is delicious! They have some of... More

The reviews don't lie! This place was absolutely amazing. Came in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a short wait but food came out quick and service was great.
