A croque madame with thick-sliced ham, gruyere, and plenty of mornay sauce is killer paired with crispy, salty frites and a glass of Champagne.

4123 Cedar Springs Rd
Dallas, TX 75219
(214) 522-3474

4. CFS and Eggs @ Ellen's Southern Kitchen

Copy Link
1718 N. Market Street
Dallas, TX 75202
(469) 206-3339
Visit Website
Ellen's chicken-fried steak is about as textbook-perfect as it gets in Dallas, and the addition of a couple runny-yolked eggs takes it over the top.

5. Chilaquiles @ El Taquito

Copy Link
5427 E Grand Ave
Dallas, TX 75223
(214) 823-5872
El Taquito's chilaquiles are the finest in Dallas. Perfectly runny over-easy eggs make a magical combination with crisp tortilla strips smothered in cheese and spicy green salsa. (Warning: Weekend lines are really long.)

6. Breakfast Tacos @ Good 2 Go

Copy Link
1146 Peavy Rd.
Dallas, TX 75218
(214) 668-0831
Visit Website
Good 2 Go has what are arguably the finest breakfast tacos around, and while fancier versions like the Paris, TX are magical taste-explosions, the simple potato and egg version is stellar.

7. BLFGT @ Jack's Southern Comfort Food

Copy Link
1905 Greenville Avenue
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 821-0900
Visit Website
Step 1: Go to Jack's on Lower Greenville. Step 2: Order the BLFGT (bacon, lettuce, fried green tomato, and remoulade on a fresh baked buttermilk biscuit). Step 3: Prepare for food coma.

8. BELT @ Off-Site Kitchen

Copy Link
2226 Irving Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75207
(214) 741-2226
Visit Website
Off-Site Kitchen's BLT is kicked up a few notches with bacon that's always cooked to crisp perfection, insanely buttery toasted bread, and a runny-yolked egg.

9. Breakfast Pizza @ Olivella's

Copy Link
624625 E Mockingbird Ln.
Dallas, TX 75214
(214) 528-7070
Visit Website
Olivella's breakfast pizza is sex on a platter, particularly when ordered with Jimmy's sausage and onions. The pizza is parcooked in the oven, then eggs are cracked on top and it's slid back in to finish cooking them to a perfect runny state.

10. Fried Egg Burger @ Stackhouse Burgers

2917 Gaston Ave.
Dallas, TX 75204
(214) 828-1330
Visit Website
A lot of burger joints offer fried eggs as a topping these days, but Stackhouse's is especially glorious and always perfectly runny. Add bacon and avocado to gild the lily, and BYOB (that's "bring your own bib"). [Photo: Leigh P./Yelp]

11. Pickled Eggs @ Ten Bells Tavern

Copy Link
232 W 7th St
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 943-2677
Visit Website
You've probably seen pickled eggs in a jar near the register at a gas station. Ten Bells' pickled eggs are not those eggs -- these are perfectly cooked and magically flavored with things like curry.

12. Chicken Meatball Yakitori @ Teppo

Copy Link
2014 Greenville Ave.
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 826-8989
Visit Website
Teppo has some pretty adventurous yakitori on their menu (beef hearts, anyone?), but don't miss the succulent chicken meatball skewers with raw quail egg garnish. (There's also quail egg yakitori with bacon, if raw eggs make you squeamish.)
