Walker Brothers


Walker Brothers

Walker Brothers is a series of pancake houses in the Chicago area.

They developed as a franchised spin-off of The Original Pancake House, founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke; although the Walker Brothers version has been in business for over 45 years. Like the original, they are famous for their apple pancakes, French toast, and omelettes. [ [http://walkerbrosoph.com/ Walker Brothers Original Pancake House] ]
