Breakfast-Lawrence-Tewksbury-Andover, MA

I spend 4 days a week in Andover, MA and can not find decent eggs for breakfast. I am not interested in the chains like IHOP, Friendly's, Denny's or Cracker Barrel.
I have tried some local places such as the Waffle Restaurant at exit 38 (495) in Tewksbury and Carleen's on RT 28 in Lawrence, BUT the eggs are vile.
What is the Massachusetts fascination with FRYMAX. The eggs taste lousy and they look and feel like greasy plastic. I have not been able to find a traditional Greek owned and operated pre-fab diner that makes great eggs.
When I get desperate, I go into Salem, NH to Bickfords. Eggs are very good, BUT expensive and the place is rundown.
The rest of the week I live in southern CT and there is no shortage of good egg breakfasts at reasonable prices. Why eggs, meat and coffee should cost $10 with tip in the Merrimack Valley is beyond me, especially when they are not good.

Any locals with suggestions? I travel up 290 to 495 to 93 to exit 45.
