Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, according to someone. My favorite place to grub out at the break of dawn will be at the bottom of this post, but please add yours in the comments. Maybe there are some pancakes out there that need my attention, or some biscuits and gravy, or a Bloody Mary made with gravy... put that in your Ninja Turtles thermos.

Lubbock Breakfast House (7006 University Ave)

It's the fourth 11am game of the year; you need to start it off the right way. The Breakfast House has quite an expansive menu, but I've never strayed from the breakfast favorites. It has a great diner feel, complete with mismatched white coffee mugs. The service has always been excellent, and so has the food. Check out their daily special while you're there, but it's hard for me to stray from the Farm House Breakfast: bacon, sliced ham, sausage links, two pancakes, two scrambled eggs w/ cheese, and home fried potatoes. All that for $7.99.

The Breakfast house is open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays then from 6am-10pm the rest of the week.

What say you, VTMers?
