The Waysider is a Tuscaloosa landmark known for its southern style breakfast, particularly its biscuits and red-eye gravy. The restaurant is located in an old house that has been converted. The seating area is very limited and very tight when the place is full. However, the food is delicious and the coffee is wonderful. You will see locals and tourists... More

Before our long trek back to Ohio, we decided to stop in for a comforting breakfast.... HOLY TOLEDO--- $14 for an Omelet. Yes, I said $14.....No price on the menu, just says We Have Omelets. Sure, dumb us for not asking for some kind of pricing but really. When we brought it to the waitresses attention, she spoke w/the manager(her... More

I've been living in ttown for three years and just recently tried Waysider last Sunday. First of all, the atmosphere is precious and cozy with GREAT service. The service is friendly and welcoming. The food was the best breakfast I've had in a long time. The homemade biscuits are to die for. I would definitely recommend trying this place!

After all the hype from these reviews I expected more. The friendly service was at least a bright spot. The biscuits were ok, the bacon was good and the eggs pretty ok. (We ordered them medium and our expectation is yellow runny, white done. They were a bit more done than that). We ordered a side of sausage gravy for... More

The Waysider is a Tuscaloosa tradition -- by far the most famous breakfast in town. This is well deserved. A very good Southern breakfast. I have never had another meal here, although I believe they serve lunch.

Waysider is one of the breakfast places in Tuscaloosa that I was told I absolutely had to go to. I'll admit I didn't make it there until my senior year of college back in 2009. It's a tiny house that's incredibly easy to miss. Parking is a bit tricky. You have to go past the house and make a right... More

The only saving grace for the Waysider is the food is good. Ask to go in the kitichen and make up your own mind if you want to eat there. My group and I ate there every day for a long time until one day we were told we were too much trouble so we left there and have not... More

The Waysider has the most wonderful breakfast you'll ever eat!! The biscuits are light and fluffy and the quality of everything is the best, including the staff!! I have many cherished memories while dining at the Waysider.

Biscuits are cute but have they redecorated since 1970? Felt I was in a time warp. The smell emanating from the back porch is nauseating so not much hope for a clean kitchen. Witnessed the owner do something vicious to a waitress. Will never ever return.
