If breakfast is the game you play, than you're going to want to make time for Arizona Breakfast Weekend. (It is, after all, the most important meal of the day.)

Between July 28 and 31, dozens of breakfast joints around the Valley will offer special menu items from triple berry French toast to smoked brisket hash to breakfast tacos and red velvet pancakes.

Hungry yet?

Each meal will cost either $7, $10 or $15 and at some restaurants that will include a drink (mimosa anyone?).

The event is put on by the Arizona Restaurant Association, which also puts on Arizona Restaurant Week in the fall and spring, in an effort to get people into their neighborhood restaurants or to venture out and go somewhere new.

We scoured the menus and below are our picks for the top dishes.
