Randall's is becoming more of our regular weekend place for breakfast. You will notice they are always busy, but do not walk away. The breakfast is served with lightening speed and tables turned over quickly. We have never waited more than 10 minutes for a table. The variety is varied, and they have one of the largest omelets in the... More

For a senior, this place is fantastic. Special breakfast and lunch menu that is plenty to eat and enjoy. Food is good and so is the service. Friendly people from the owner to the busboys. Clean restroom.

I love Randall's Pancake House. First, I love the fact that the portion sizes are huge!!! I come here to eat!!! I enjoy getting an omelette. I can make it healthy with egg whites and lots of vegetables. I especially like that I can get pancakes instead of hash browns that usually come with the omelette. I usually come with... More

Don't waste your money! This is my worst choice for breakfast in Elgin. Burnt Toast is the best. The food taste greasy.

I have been to Randall's twice, once with my mom and once for a girl's lunch date. My mom and I decided to share a vegi omelet. Wow, it was huge and delicious. The service was friendly and fast. My second trip was just as good. This time I tried one of their chicken sandwiches. Again the portion was large... More

This place has excellent food and make sure you come in with a very empty stomach. My only complaint is there is no healthy choices.

Fast service, delicious food, nice atmosphere. Really great for weekend breakfast, there will be a wait but its worth it. Usually the wait is not longer than 20 minutes, even on a busy Sunday. Great for families.

This is a very busy, yet comfortable restaurant accommodating family to small business meals. Menu is wide ranging and servings sizes exceed most, if not all places. friendly hometown feel.

Really enjoyed the breakfast. Couldn't finish and that's pretty rare for me. Omelets were huge as were the side of pancakes. Very large menu. Dutch Babies, potato pancakes biscuits and gravy - pretty much you name it they have it and top quality and large portions. Quite the combination. Only negative - be prepared to wait a little.

This place has one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. If you go on the weekend, be prepared to wait up to an hour. There is shopping in the area, so browse around while you wait. The food is definitely worth the wait. The portions are huge!
