John Daley, an Irish ironworker who came to Chicago to work on building the elevated line, saw a need for a restaurant to feed all the men constructing the University of Chicago, The World's Columbian Exposition and the Rapid Transit Line. More than 100 years later, hungry diners are delighting the "famous" club breakfast ordered by the number. The Number 1 is an egg with your choice of meat (including sausage, bacon, salt pork, chopped steak, hot links, smoked ham or a well-seasoned salmon patty) plus toast or biscuits. Order pancakes, waffles or French toast with chicken wings and hot sauce if you like or how about liver, catfish or pork chops with your eggs sided with grits, hash browns or rice? There are skillets, omelets and breakfast sandwiches still prepared to fill up a construction worker.
- Breakfast: "Even choosing bread is a dilemma. Will it be Daley's Famous Homemade Biscuits; white; wheat; rye; Greek toast; marble rye; English muffin; or a bagel?"
- Best for Breakfast Because: It's not all about the north side: Daley's in Woodlawn offers a hearty old fashioned breakfast that fills you 'til dinner.
