Guide Review - Jimmy's Egg

Jimmy's Egg has been one of my favorite places in OKC, especially for a great breakfast. There are 11 convenient locations around the metro, and it has been a city staple for many years. But I also understand that it's not for everyone.

It is, after all, a very casual, diner-type restaurant that specializes in breakfast and lunch. This is not the place to go if you're looking for an upscale dining experience. Depending on the location, you'll likely find a crowded, bustling restaurant with only decent service from my experience. The food, though, is the reason to go.

If you're a breakfast food fan, as I am, and like to occasionally enjoy a big, filling feast, you'll likely enjoy this much more than IHOP. Specialty omelet options include those with meats and cheese as well as vegetable. Feeling adventurous (and have plenty of antacids on hand)? Try the "Heartburn," a cheese omelet smothered in chili beans and onion.

You also won't be able to beat the prices at Jimmy's Egg. With most meals, you get the option of potato (hash-browns, home-fried potatoes) and bread (homemade, toast, biscuits and gravy). And a hearty meat and egg breakfast or stack of pancakes won't cost you more than 4 or 5 bucks.
