Breakfast in far East Dallas

randyjl Aug 15, 2011 06:54 PM

Any reccomendations for Saturday morning breakfast in far East Dallas or Mesquite? We have a group of 7-12 that likes to meet up in that area. Would especially love a rec for a Mexican breakfast.

    I can't believe no one has suggested Barbec's on Garland Road.

    Great beer biscuits and gravy.

      I went to Circle Grill last nite for dinner and most of their menu is breakfast. I am looking forward to going for breakfast.

      While I have never tried it, the Monterrey Restaurant in the Lochwood Shopping Center on Garland Road (in front of Home Depot) is open for breakfast. It's generally pretty busy, often packed on the weekends.

      Just throwing it out there... It's on our 'to try' list, but we haven't made it yet so I can't offer any personal feedback.

        Adding... Monterrey (above) is Mexican, course.

        A few more non-Mexican suggestions- the Circle Grill (Buckner & I30), Another Broken Egg (at Casa Linda) and Chubby's (NW Highway & Jupiter) . And our current favorite, though a bit more to the north, is Crossroads Diner (Walnut Hill & 75).

        Circle Grill & Chubby's serve more traditional, diner style fare. Another Broken Egg and Crossroads are slightly more upscale specialty breakfast/brunch types.

        Good 2 Go Taco is awesome but I haven't been to their new location yet so can't speak to the seating situation...

        Scrambles in Mesquite near Town East is a great little independently owned breakfast spot. They have like a hundred different kinds of omelets and fantastic biscuits & gravy, they make all their salsas/sauces from scratch.

        Taco Joint on Peak isn't exactly authentic Mexican but in addition to delicious breakfast tacos, they have migas plates and things like that. Really yummy salsas.

          +1 for Good 2 Go Tacos.
          Also, the Green Spot Market & Fuels would be good, too.
