This is the default breakfast joint for U of U students, faculty, staff and nearby civilians. And the default dish is the “Gawd Awful”: a cholesterol buster consisting of two eggs on hashbrowns with chili and cheese on top. Big Ed’s is located at the edge of the campus, but some have suggested that the restaurant is closer to the edge of reality. Stick around until beer o’clock for a cold can of PBR and pretty good burgers, especially the chili burger. There’s also an excellent French dip sandwich on the menu.
