Huevos rancheros, which roughly translates to rancher's eggs, is a classic breakfast dish, bringing together eggs, tortillas, and salsa for an extremely hearty start to the day. Often topped with cheese, avocado, beans, and meat, the dish is a high-fiber favorite for keeping you full all day.

The best huevos rancheros are served hot and highlight the combination of runny egg yolks (no shame if you prefer scrambled), spicy and flavorful toppings, and tortillas. They're a satisfying breakfast or brunch option with a distinctive Mexican flair.

Around the country, chains big and small are making versions of this brunch classic. Here are seven restaurant chains to eat huevos rancheros:
