Okay, kids. Who's currently got the best brunch in "Chucktown"? (Don't you hate that nickname?)

    Absolutely detest the term "Chucktown".

    Hall's Chophouse is usually considered the best-of-the-best. Just be prepared for a $40+ breakfast...errr...brunch.

      Ouch. That's a bit steep for brunch. Any less expensive options?

        I gave sort of a worst case scenario. If you are frugal, it won't be much more expensive than Husk. It all depends on if you have a cocktail and if you have a standard breakfast food or more of a specialty item...same as Husk.

        You said: Absolutely detest the term "Chucktown".
        I agree: Sounds like Fort Worth or Dallas, TX to me.

          Sounds yummy, and the prices are more than reasonable. I wasn't that impressed with the one dinner I had there right after they opened, but I'm certainly willing to give them another try.

            I could see dropping $30+ here as well. Depends on how you order.

          believe it or not,my daughters gang swear by brunch at AC's bar on King.I've never been.How about Marina Variety Store,Page's or Early Bird, or Hominy.

          If its called brunch you probably slept too late and paid too much!
