What are your fav TUS breakfast places? I like the Good Egg and Blue Willow , but I'm looking for something new. Billy's Grill closed, so now I am wonding where else I can go for a great Breakfast/ Brunch while in the U/AZ area.

Last time I was out there, I really enjoyed Frank's. The style might not suit, though; it's not the same sort of place as I recall the two you mentioned being. Frank's was not in any way frou-frou (I don't remember any gift shops or coffee thermos/carafes left on the table); it was a good working-class diner when I saw it. I'm heading back next month for a couple of days sitting around at Lowe's Ventana Canyon, so I'm looking forward to seeing if Frank's is still as good. Sure hope so.

Well, last month we were in Tucson and we stopped by Frank's. We both agreed that it was not nearly as good as we remembered - service was still good and prices were low, but the food did nothing in particular for us and the place was not looking good (spills, flies, washrags lying about).
If you want to try a few places farther out from the UofA here are a few.
Toni's, 22nd st. just west of Wilmot, north side of 22nd. Standard american fare, super fast service.
Happy Rooster, on Sarnoff just north of 22nd. Standard american, huge portions.
Poco & Mom's, 22nd & Kolb next to the old Kolb rd. Tavern, Fantastic New Mexican style breakfast, tons of choices, gotta get there early place is always jammed.
Chaco's, outside of main gate of DMAFB next to Mamma Louisa's on South Craycroft, Mexican and standard breakfast.
These are all locally owned "Mom & Pop" joints, I won't do chains anymore for breakfast.
My all time favorite breakfast place in Tucson was Johnny's, been gone for a long time, can't count the times I stumbled in there after closing the Maverick over 30 years ago. Best damn hashbrowns I've ever ate!

Little Mexico. They have two locations. Great breakfast, and at least at the 12th and Ajo location, great waitresses.
Little Mexico Restaurant

Whoops, I meant 12th and Irvington. I guess the other links chow put in may be worth looking at too, but I've never been to them.
