We went to Flappy's for breakfast and we didn't have out 1/2 off coupon. But the coupon didn't say we needed it. I asked if they would give us the 1/2 discount and the manager told us no. We won't be going back. And the food was cold and the sausage links were nasty. Service was lousey.

Hands down Oswego Family Restaurant even though they don't take debit or credit cards! Best food for the buck and it's awesome!

Oswego Family Restaurant serves an awesome breakfast at very reasonable prices. I LOVE their skillet breakfasts! The only down side is that they do not accept credit or debit cards. The service is always excellent.

Wow Mary Ann, kind of harsh, isn't it? Seems you were more interested in telling people they wouldn't accept your coupon instead of talking about the food (article stats,tastiest fare, best breakfast, etc.)! We have been to Flappy's many times and have always had great food there. Those of us who live on the west side of the river would love for any type of food restaurant or fast food business to make it. It's too bad the other food places we were promised haven't come to light yet on Orchard Road (Taco Bell, Long John Silvers). Anyway, Flappy's has great food!!

Oswego Family Restaurant - gets you in and out. Food is hot, service is always friendly and they have great prices!! Great bacon and eggs!

I've never heard of a restaurant offering a coupon, a customer not bringing the coupon in and still expecting to get the discount. That would be like me telling Target I have $10 off in coupons sitting on my kitchen counter, but can you still knock it off my bill. That makes no sense.

We are not big breakfast out people, but we will sometimes hit Panera. I have had some experiences at other places where the restaurants were not very clean, service wasn't great, etc. We know what we're getting at Panera and we've not been disappointed.

Oswego Family restaurant. Great food and friendly service. A little bit of a wait on the weekends but well worth it.

I second, everything you have listed above. It's hard to put all three of them in the same category. They each stand alone as number one in their own right.

Oswego Family Restaurant hands down for everything but pancakes. Love the home town feel. However, if I want pancakes, I'm still an IHOP girl.

Oswego Family is the best! I love to go there with my family. I love the atmosphere. I always run into someone I know.

Oswego Fam ( as its called in my circle) has a special place in my heart. Besides awesome food, service and prices, it sure is the cure for a Prairiefest hangover!

Oswego Family Diner! Although I will say as a minority (Chinese) person - I always get a lot of stares (mostly by other diners) when I go in... But the food is awesome, can't beat the quality and taste!
