Lubbock folks got quite a shock this month when long-time brunch spot The Egg & I's well-known signage was gone, replaced by a banner for something called Chicken Run.

So, what happened to The Egg & I, which opened in Lubbock back in 2013? And what exactly is Chicken Run? We found out.

We called the newly-minted eatery Tuesday morning and spoke to the manager, who told us that The Egg & I chain was recently purchased by another company. This led the Lubbock business to disenfranchise and rename itself.

The good part? If you loved The Egg & I Lubbock's menu, nothing has changed. According to the manager, Chicken Run's menu is exactly the same. So if you loved The Egg & I's Parisian Benedict or Huevos Rancheros, you'll still love what Chicken Run is serving up for breakfast, lunch and brunch.

Chicken Run is located at 1910 Quaker Ave. in Lubbock, Texas. It's open 7 days a week, 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. You can like them on Facebook for more info.
