We were in town for a funeral and found this great spot after the service. We were in low spirits but turned to trip advisor for a recommendation. What a great choice we made. Pancakes, eggs, bacon and more!! Everything was delicious, the food was prepared quickly and the portions were huge. Great food!

After all the rave reviews, I had to check this place out. I guess I should start with the best: those biscuits are fantastic! I also ordered a grits bowl, based on all the hype. While it was classic comfort food, I thought it could have been seasoned a bit more. The portions are very substantial, the people are friendly,... More

My son got the sampler platter and the pile of meats, eggs, and biscuits would keep a lumber jack going for days. Not only were the portions generous everything including the gravy was delicious. Had plenty of biscuits left over to take home and enjoy latter-everything home made.

The food looks amazing and tastes amazing. One slight problem we had on our visit. We had a special ingredient in 3 of our 4 meals. My husband got his plate and noticed a little black hair in his eggs. They took it back right away and gave him another plate. My mom was really enjoying her omelet until she... More

Visited on a Friday morning around 10:00 a.m. Very busy but very efficient. Waited in line for about ten minutes. Line moved steadily. Things are set up to move you along and by the time you get to the register to actually order and pay you already have your drink in hand. After ordering you can be seated with your... More

The Food here was good, and you get so much. Be prepared to stand in line, and be around a crowd; but it's worth it. people will eat, get full and clear out. I wish the building was bigger, be if you have ate at other small places; you'll have no problems. Good food!!!!!

Stopped in here for a breakfast bowl and was hooked. This is a small place but we got in and out in 15mins with our food and ate in the car. Since I only had breakfast I'll have to go back to try the BBQ ☺

Based on the rave reviews, my wife and I stopped here on a Saturday morning. As predicted their was a substantial line of people and the line was moving fast. Congrats to the management on running a finely tuned operation. Sorry to report that my positive comments ends there. The food was ok, but that's it... not bad but nothing... More

Everything on the menu was delicious and the service in the busy establishment was GREAT!! The pancakes were made to perfection; the bacon was tasty and the omelet was the best we've ever tasted! We will definitely be frequent customers when we travel to Memphis
