I was out running errands with my wife early on a Sunday morning.
I wanted to find somewhere to go for breakfast that wasn’t too far away.
I ended up going to Walker Brothers Pancake House in Schaumburg.
I understand that it was a Sunday and this is the day that everyone goes out with their families for breakfast, but this location was so busy.
I asked to be seated outside. The way to get to the outside patio was a lawsuit waiting to happen.
I was led through the preparation station for the waitresses near the coffee station. The floor was absolutely soaked with liquids.
I felt like I should not have walked through there almost like it was an employee-only entrance.
I was sad at the very nice back corner table. The weather was fantastic during the stay so it really was great to sit outside.
I noticed hanging above my head was wasp traps that looked like IV bags.
I soon realized why these were hung all over the patio. They had a severe wasp problem that I dealt with for my entire stay.
Our waitress was super efficient. She immediately asked us what we wanted to drink and if we knew what we want to order.
I blinked and our drinks were on the table. I ordered pancakes with a skillet.
My wife ordered the same.
The pancakes were good nothing super special about them. My skillet also was mediocre.
My wife did not think anything good or bad about her skillet it just was OK.
The restaurant was now at full capacity and started to feel very crowded.
There was a party of 16 that showed up to sit in the outside area making it feel very crowded and uncomfortable.
I asked for the bill. The bill was $45 for breakfast with only water and coke to drink.
I felt that the price was very high for what we received.
This will not be a choice of mine to go for breakfast again there are many better breakfast spots in the Schaumburg area.
Irate Walker Brothers Pancake House in Schaumburg a 4 out of 10.
If you need a breakfast spot and everything else is busy you could choose here to eat. I would say this would be my last choice to go to, but they are not so awful that I would not suggest you do not eat here if you have no other options.
