    Definitely a nice spot if you live nearby, but not worth a special trip. Service was ok, food was good but not AMAZING

    Generally it is a cool place to have breakfast, the Verb Omelette was really good but a bit oily to me, better share with your friends coz the dish is kinda heavy.

    I love the patty melt and they have the best fries in Chicago. The turkey club is also amazing. Pancakes are great too. You really can't go wrong.

    This place is the best. Omelettes are fantastic (and big!) plus it's BYOB. Line moves fast so don't get scared by the wait for a table.

    Eggy’s cooks its peppery patties to medium-well, but they remained plenty juicy. It's tough to hold together, with pastrami and a fried egg, but don't fill yourself up and ignore the hand-cut fries. Read more

    Chicago's little breakfast secret. Tucked inside of River West Eggy's is a nice, warm spot for great food and never a long line. Try the chilaquiles for a good time

    Don't get Green Eggs and Ham if you don't want a delicious and somewhat unconventional breakfast. Their Benny is also great if you want an unconventional take on something more conventional.

    The green eggs and ham are okay. I had to add Sriracha chili sauce to give it some kick. The people I was with recommended the Reuben.
