Sometimes a good Waffle House omelet really hits the spot.
4. Waffle House
Waffle House holds a special place in my heart, as it's where I'd go to sober up study in the middle of the night during grad school in small-town Missouri. Say what you will about the grungy national chain, but the tiny Waffle Houses across Houston make great waffles (as the name suggests) and even better omelets and hash browns--whether you want them smothered, covered, chunked or "all the way." Breakfast is served 24 hours a day, and it's one of the few fast food places that still has a dollar menu.

You can get Natachee's great pancakes all day long.
3. Natachee's
This is southern cooking at its finest. Chicken fried steak and eggs, huevos rancheros and the popular country breakfast (not to mention boozy beverage specials during Saturday and Sunday brunch) make Natachee's a popular destination for breakfast in Midtown. While the whole menu is filled with hearty soul food, breakfast is served all day, and it's hard to resist the lure of biscuits with pan sausage and gravy for dinner.

I know right? It's like, yeah we're an advertising rag. We aren't even pretending to represent Houston.

Out of all the great restaurants in Houston, you include Waffle House on this list? It's a chain diner. Really?

I'm more than happy with a dozen donuts, cronuts or croissants. Protein is for lunch and dinner.

Harry's Cafe....fun to see which famous Houstonians you'll spot there. And the food is good.

I would make a suggestion, but nobody considers anything outside of the loop to be "Houston" much-less outside of the beltway, so why bother?

@jensen True, but I don't think anyone would consider Harry's underrated.
