Came here with my husband and infant. They originally wanted to seat us in a small booth, but them realized we had a baby and caraway, gave us a corner booth and sling. The waitress was sweet. Food was so good, thick bacon!!!

The Apple pancake is so good.....they have started the batch of them before you arrive. If you have 20 minutes to spare, ask them to make one with less sugar and they'll make yours from scratch. It's still perhaps the best apple pancake ever made!

We moved from the Chicago area to Texas about 17 years ago, and although there are Original Pancake Houses, none compare to Walker Brothers. I always get the vegetarian omelet, which is so fluffy and light, but almost impossible to finish in one sitting.

A bunch of friends decided to meet up in Chicago for a housewarming party. We were all high school friends and it was great to meet after several years. The breakfast at Walker Bros made the occasion even more memorable. This definitely proved to be one of the best breakfasts I ever had of any cuisine in any country. Since... More

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
