Customers scramble for free breakfast at new Tempe breakfast spot
TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -
There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but customers at a new restaurant in Tempe found out that there is such a thing as a free breakfast.
On Tuesday, June 23, the first 100 guests who scrambled to the front of the line at Over Easy's grand opening received free breakfast sandwich dishes each month for the rest of the year.
Those who failed to crack the top 100 still got a sandwich for their efforts.
Over Easy is now open in Downtown Tempe's Farmer Arts District. It's the the sixth location of the now-famous breakfast and brunch spot that rose to fame after being featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" and "The Best Thing I Ever Ate."
Accomplished restaurateur Aaron May and co-founder Brad May are the brains behind the concept.
Some specialties at Over Easy include chocolate, M&M or Reese's pancakes, and caramelized banana and pecan French toast. Those seeking something a little more in line with the eatery's namesake can indulge in Southwestern-inspired classics like Chilaquiles or Three Eggs with sirloin, caramelized onion, jalapeno and potato.
The restaurant seats 80, and also offers easy grab-and-go options.
Over Easy will be open daily from 6:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
