Regular readers know that the GF and I recently moved to the Fairmount area. So on the day of the move, where did I grab breakfast at 7AM? In an effort to properly fuel up, I stopped by Bubby's Brisket & Bugsy's Weiners. Previously I had tried their cheese steak and brisket sandwiches, which were pretty much on point and definitely well-priced. I'm happy to say that the same can be said of their breakfast fare.
Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich ($4.25)
It's nothing fancy, but pretty much all you need to fuel up for the entire day. For just a little over $4, you get a huge roll filled with sausage, egg, and cheese. While these sausage patties are likely frozen, they still hit the spot. Fried eggs were cooked on the flattop right where the morning bacon was cooked, so they had some of that great imparted porcine flavor I love. American cheese was nicely interspersed as well. This was so money - for not that much, uhm ... money.
Home Fries ($1.50)
As an added bonus, I decided to get the home fries. Who can say no to home fries that are less than $2? These were shredded right on to the flat top and were tender, with some bite from the fresh onion (optional). While a bit bland, it was nothing a little ketchup, hot sauce, and black pepper couldn't spruce up.
So if you're in the Love Park area on the way to work, do yourself a favor and stop by Bubby's Brisket & Bugsy's Weiners. Clearly, it's not haute cuisine or brunch fare to be had with a mimosa, but you'll have the energy to get through the day, or a 5-hour move.
