We Tried 14 Chain Breakfast Restaurants. Here's The Best One

One great thing about eating breakfast at a restaurant is the ability to try new things. While the breakfast restaurant options are numerous, not all the chains are worth your money. These are the top breakfast chains, ranked from the worst to the absolute best.
If you go to Denny's for breakfast, you'll enter the restaurant with high hopes and leave completely underwhelmed. While Denny's has the famous Grand Slam breakfast, everything about it is overrated. The Original Grand Slam comes with a pair of buttermilk pancakes, a pair of sausage links, two strips of bacon, and two eggs.
Unfortunately, the pancakes are virtually flavorless, the sausages are disappointingly small, and the bacon is too fatty, and the scrambled eggs are just disappointing.
Skipping the overrated Grand Slam doesn't solve anything. From their Belgian waffles to their toast to their hash browns, it's amazing how this restaurant has been able to remove the joy from each and every breakfast item.
Do yourself a solid and go somewhere else when you're out and about for breakfast. Otherwise, you'll have false hope that your day will be starting with a grand slam home run but you'll really just be striking out.

  • Cracker Barrel is okay, it's better than fast food. But it has a very "SYSCO" taste these days. Just warmed up food that was made elsewhere, they have been losing quality slowly over the years. I'll still eat it over fast food, but it's not as good as places that prepare their own food more.

  • I live around 150 or so miles from the nearest Craker Barrel or Bob Evens. I once spent a long weekend at a motel that had Bob next door. I not only had breakfast for 4 or 5 days in a row, something you forgot, they make the worlds greatest pies. So I went in and had a slice every night. before bedtime. and I have never done that anywhere else.

  • Many of the restaurants pay servers less than & 3.00 per hour plus tips. If they don’t earn minimum wage in tips their hours and days of work are cut. They’re made to work at low volume customer hours. Right to work laws allow employers to terminate employees without reason. Many are single with children. Enjoy your meal and remember to leave a generous tip. Help stimulate the economy.. Now which is your favorite restaurant? Makes me want to vomit. 🤮

  • IHOP is the most processed breakfast I’ve ever had. Eggs, tasteless saltless pepperless rubber. Bacon, I’m fairly certain its steamed and lacks any crunch. Toast, cardboard with burn marks. Pancakes, bland tasteless disks of nothing saved only by a swim in their syrups. Unless you get a gimmick pancake that tastes less like a cloud of airy pancake and more like a vehicle for you to get a sugar burn. IHOP is the store brand microwave frozen breakfast of breakfast chains.

All of these establishments prove breakfast can be screwed up. If I am in a hurry I'll just grab a Sausage McMuffin and a hash brown and will be totally satisfied !
