Waited over an hour for a table but was worth it in the end. The pimento cheese app was delicious. French toast app just as delicious. Got a veggie scramble with goat cheese and added soysage. Yummmm! Iced coffee too!

I love this place, and wish it were less crowded. Service is inconsistent, sometimes really great and prompt, other times, awful. Dining room needs to be kept cleaner, but all in all, the food is terrific, and I have loved watching it grow into a great success.

Spent a Sunday lunch with family and friends for a birthday with 9 total people. The menu offers great brunch options with a southern flair and some healthy options as well. Kudos to staff who were hustling inside and outside. We were fortunate we had reservations as walk ups were more than 45min wait during noon time frame. Great peach... More

Visited Athens recently and had read great reviews about Mama's Boy as one of the best breakfast locations in town. I haven't tried many others, but this is a great place for a great meal. The location is easy to find near the university and we each had eggs, cheese grits, bacon and biscuits. Everything was great…especially the Cheese Grits... More

There were a lot of people waiting for a table when we went to Mama's Boy for a late morning breakfast. We were told there was a 30 minute wait, but were seated outside at a picnic table in about 10 minutes. Our server was very helpful and our egg dishes were very good. The poached eggs over pork barbecue... More

Sausage , egg and cheese biscuit. I would eat one if these every day if I lived in athens. Awesome! Cheese grits and fried green tomatoes outstanding. My friend had some kind of breakfast dish with pulled pork and eggs. Really good.

Yeah, there was a 20 minute wait. Yeah, parking is limited. Yeah, the place is small. But... brunch was delicious, served quickly, and totally worth it! The biscuits and blackberry jam are no joke. You're going to want to try the strawberry lemonade - a little on the sweet side, but enjoyable. The menu is varied but not extensive. If... More

Excellent food. I love the enormous bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit and the peach French toast is awesome, too. Parking is limited and the restaurant is small, which can result in long wait times - but it's worth it!
