#2 Al's Breakfast


How They Got Here:

Yelp Rating: 4.5 stars

Why people love it:

I am not exaggerating when I say that this was THE BEST breakfast I have ever had at a restaurant. My family and I waited in line for two hours to eat but it was worth it.


All in all, I wish I lived next door to Al's. I would definitely return and wait two hours to eat it all again. Make sure you bring someone who is patient and loves to talk to wait with you!!

#3 Republic


How They Got Here?

Yelp Rating: 3.5 stars

Why people love it:

So you can actually have a burger and frieses (because those are also $3 during HH) for less than what it would cost for a burger by itself normally! It's a steal that should be taken advantage of because their burgers - like the red wine reduction and brie - are also taste-a-rific!
