Breakfast food is the greatest and most versatile type of food known to man. We start the day eating breakfast, and more often than not, we choose to eat breakfast at times when no other food sounds appealing — late at night. We even created brunch, which is basically just an excuse to eat breakfast at a later time.
Finding a restaurant that serves breakfast is not hard. Ihop, Denny’s, and Waffle House are always options, but never my first choice. Finding a restaurant that serves an amazing breakfast is difficult.
The answer is Jimmy’s Egg. I’ve been to several different Jimmy’s Egg locations countless times and it has never let me down.
When you first walk in, you’ll feel right at home with a cheesy rooster and “old-fashioned cooking” signs. At first, this set off a red flag for me, because many restaurants emulate the homey feel, but their food tastes terrible. Jimmy’s Egg does not fit this stereotype.
I’ve gotten a variety of different foods and I’ve been pleased each time. The pancakes, french toast and waffles are great.
However, my favorite item on the menu is the Biscuit Debris, which includes: two buttermilk biscuits with creamy country sausage gravy, grilled sausage and ham, topped with melted cheddar, and a side of hash browns or home fries. It’s basically biscuits and gravy on steroids paired with the most amazing potatoes you can imagine.
Jimmy’s Egg also offers omelets, cinnamon rolls, skillet scrambles, breakfast burritos and much more.
Because breakfast food might not be for everyone, they also have items like sandwiches, salads, chicken fried steak, burgers and breaded pork chops. Luckily, the entire menu is served all day.
Their prices are fairly reasonable and, considering the homemade quality, it’s worth every penny.
The only downside to eating at Jimmy’s is they are only open from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. It’s always unfortunate when I crave breakfast after 2 p.m.
Leslie Knope said it best when she said, “Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?”
Why would anybody ever eat breakfast food anywhere other than Jimmy’s Egg?
