Jacks N Joe is basically USC’s personal breakfast and brunch heaven. The food isn’t really worth traveling for, but if you’re a hungover student and you want decent eggs, this is your spot. The service is fast, the coffee is better than at your average diner, and you’ll probably run into your hookup from last night. Try not to go in a hunger blackout, though, because the waits can get truly horrendous. Get the off-menu loaded hash browns.
