Getting inside; getting a seat is the first challenge. The menu is not that different. The food is average-as is portion size. The cost is on the high size based on what is available. It must be me as people keep flocking in and waiting for a table and then the food.

Mey parents and I went here after my college graduation and now anytime I'm back in town. It's delicious with endless options! Pictured is the pumpkin cheesecake waffle. It was more of a dessert but to die for.

Eggheads has excellent food- omlets, skillets, pancakes- large enough to have some left for the next morning for me! Lunch is great as well with a wide variety of sandwiches all served with the soup of the day.

Big casual restaurant, great atmosphere, and even better food! The place is an average size building, nicely decorated, fast and friendly service. If I lived in that area, I would definitely become a regular.

Really good food, quick service, we'll organized. The menu is extensive, took me longer to figure out what I wanted than it did to get my food. Little bit of a wait, but it worked out well. When my cheese blintzes arrived I thought I should split them with 2 other people. Really big potions for a good price. Good... More

Friday mornings my wife & I go or WeightWatchers meeting. After the meeting we go to to EggHeadz for breakfast. Their omlettes are fantastic. Their portions are huge, so we eat 1/2 and take the other half home. Great food and wonderful service.

Went to Tinley Park for the wedding and my hubby and I were taken with the family to this restaurant. It was jam packed, but you would never know it...the service was top shelf. I had the potato pancakes just like I make at home and can't get in California. In California, they think a potato pancake is the same... More

Met a friend for lunch. Eggheadz was extremely busy. In spite of the crowd, we got seated promptly. The service and food was great. Huge servings. You won't leave hungry.
