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!

We have been coming here for years and the service and food cannot be beat for breakfast or lunch! Come hungry because the portions are large yet affordable. My wife especially loves the "Dutch Baby", I like the Country Breakfast. Tony Israel owner and he is there every day seating everyone.

Call ahead and leave your name if you're on your way, because Randall's gets busy. People line up out the door, but they turn tables quickly. The menu is challenging, because it's got so many items and styles of breakfast foods, lunch and dinner items. Dinner items, as in having your dinner at two pm, because Randall's closes early each...
