Extremely slow line to order. I understand it's crowded because of its good reputation but modify to fit the crowd. Absolutely no room to stand or sit. Biggest downfall cash only. What is this 1965?? Food was decent. Hard to screw up eggs and bacon.

When visiting Memphis, breakfast at Bryants is a MUST! You will stand in line with the Memphis regulars and newcomers alike! There is nothing like this down home atmosphere and true to form southern delights. From the homemade biscuits to the "made by scratch sausage gravy" and everything in between, you will NOT be disappointed! It's grits and grease and... More

Had to wait in line to get coffee and place the order, but the line moved fast and the staff was super efficient. The food is good and hot, and it came out quick. You order and pay at the counter, and they don't accept tips at the counter, but the lady that brings out the food is very hard-working... More

By far one of the worst breakfast meals we have ever had. Eggs were over cooked, meat was extremely overcooked, grits were watery and the gravy tasted more like flour than gravy. The only good thing was the biscuits. Won't be going back.

This place had the best Bologna of anywhere we ate. The grits were also good as were the biscuits. The place is busy though and gets crowded. Worth a visit.
