Which national chain has the best breakfast?

Is it Denny's?

  1. I love the hash brown casserole from Cracker Barrel. I also like Waffle House and Bob Evans for breakfast. I can do IHOP, but it doesn't "speak" to me.

      I don't really care for Cracker Barrel, but I do love that hashbrown casserole, but what is the deal with the 3 tablespoons of it?!? I've asked for extra and then I get 4 tablespoons!! What does a girl have to do to get a heapin' pile of hashbrowns?!

        This is a very easy dish to make at home, just in case you cook at home, though may be one of those "it-tastes-better-in-the-restaurant" foods...if you ask for the recipe on the Home Cooking board, I'll be glad to post it, I don't think I can post it here.

    2. I once had a great breakfast at an Eat'N Park (the hash brown was to die for), but we got into a fender-bender in the parking lot afterwards so now I feel like it's bad luck to eat there.

      I used to love IHOP, but only the one near my house. They had an excellent short-order cook and no other IHOP has ever come close.

      1. McD's sausage only biscuits. I love their version of hashbrowns as well. When I was driving a cab way back when the McD's on 9th street in the Slope would have all you can eat pancakes for 99 cents on Sundays. They were pretty good.

          Luuuuv Mickey D's biscuits. My favorite is the country ham and egg, but you never know which stores will have ham on offer, or if they will discontinue it at some arbitrary time.....

        2. Waffle House. You can't go wrong with their breakfasts with the hasnbrowns.

          If you are looking for something more upscale, I have always enjoyed First Watch, which is in a few states, but expanding.

          1. Cracker Barrel. Biscuits, gravy, eggs and sausage.
