This is a great place for Breakfast at a reasonable price crepes and omelets are our favorite. The prices are much better than the Egg place down the street.

Was brought to this place by a local. This is a really good place to get a breakfast meal. Enjoyed the bread that they had. Ordered 2 scrambled eggs and sausage.

My family stopped in here to try the food and we were pleasantly surprised. It's an older diner and most of the patrons looked like they had been dining there for a very long time. The atmosphere wasn't amazing - there was a tv on the wall playing a soap opera which I wasn't a big fan of. The service... More

prices are reasonable. Food good. Now a diner can have a choice of soup or salad with the meal. Menu is the same, except the board specials change. Desert does not come with the meal except with full dinner. Location great for taking the train, bus or walking in the downtown Arlington area. Not far from Metropolis or Arlington Star... More

The Dunton House is a very good diner style restaurant that is one of my favorites for breakfast. They excel at pancakes and their home made corned beef hash. My "go to" order is a fried egg sandwich with a side of corned beef hash. Solid family owned and run treat in downtown Arlington Heights.

Dunton House is a good "comfort food" restaurant. The staff is friendly. Lots of good food for the price. It's one of our favorite "go to" places.

We were in the area and thought we would try Dunton House. It is certainly different than some of the other restaurants in the immediate area. This is your average local neighborhood diner, where everything is reasonably priced. The menu does include some Greek items, but we ordered a corned beef sandwich and also the daily special of chili in... More

We ordered a tuna melt. When it came it smelled rancid and tasted the same. The server said the "chef" made it that day. There was no way it was fresh. She argued with us and didn't offer to make amends. They also use the vacuum while you're eating. Very disconcerting and unappetizing.

Everyone knows it, it is not fine dinning... it is just a good place to get a good home cooked meal and chat with the wait staff (whom most have been there for decades) for a reasonable price. I love going there. I have been for 30+ years. Never a bad meal. If your expecting fine dining go elsewhere but... More

If you are looking for a novel dining experience, you won't find it here. This is a neighborhood restaurant that has become an Arlington Heights staple by responding to its regular long-time customers. As the neighborhood has slowly evolved, so has the selection of food it serves, but its not fad-driven. You can safely bring your kids or your grandparents... More
