The Best Bacon Dishes at Some of America’s Most Popular Restaurants

It’s been a long week at work and you’re looking for something to cheer you up. What’s going to do the trick?

Bacon, of course. But every once in a while, you don’t have the motivation to cook it yourself. It’s fine; even we feel the same way sometimes (very, very rarely but still).

That’s where the breakfast chain comes in. Their offerings of breakfast foods are generally delicious but do they have anything for hardcore bacon fans? We investigated:


Denny’s calls themselves “America’s Diner” but can they back it up with a worthy bacon selection? The verdict: Yes. If you’re feeling traditional, stick with the All-American Slam. But if you want to take a walk on the wild side, look no further than the new Honey Jalapeno Bacon Slam.

Is your mouth watering yet? This premium thick-cut bacon will wake you up and make your taste buds do a dance in your mouth. Say hello to the Scoville Scale.


IHOP takes the cake as being the restaurant chain most friendly to the cause, courting our hearts with a “Bacon Lovers” menu. If your week hasn’t been that bad, you can get by with the Bacon & Eggs Breakfast, which will supply you with four delicious strips of the hickory-smoked bacon, along with eggs and pancakes. But if it’s been a rough week, do yourself a favor and order the Bacon Temptation Omelette.

Would ya just look at it? This giant is chock-full of bite size hickory-smoked bacon. Our problems are literally fading away as we look at it.

Waffle House

Waffle House, a classic staple of savory breakfast dishes, serves 341 strips of bacon every minute. (Did you bow down just now? We did.) The Texas Bacon Egg & Cheese Melt is your best bet and a surefire way to increase this total. And if you’re going with the vintage All-Star Special, make sure bacon is always your side of choice.

Are you not entertained?

There you have it: a quick rundown of the top options for your next trip to perfection. Oh, and most of these locations are open 24/7, 365, so feel free to get your fix in any time of day because there’s only one bad time to eat bacon. And that’s never.
