Great service, good breakfast/brunch

I was unaware of Famous Anthony's despite numerous trips to Blacksbug, and now that I've found it, I wouldn't mind if others remained in the dark! Unlike a certain overhyped downtown breakfast spot, Famous Anthony's was spacious, uncrowded, and the service was outstanding. While I no doubt... read more

Me: "What's the yellow stuff on the toast?" Waitress: "I don't know." End of conversation. Try to remember your school cafeteria food, or just go here. They left off the "IN" from in front of "FAMOUS."

If you like diner food, this is the place for you in Blacksburg. A great local joint with good service. The food is nothing outstanding, but solidly good diner food that you can't go wrong with.

Just what you would expect from a restaurant of its type. Decent food at a decent price. The best part of it is probably the service, which is above average. It is not a place I rush back to, but one I go to occasionally if I am in the mood for that type of food.

Famous Anthony's is a down home type of local restaurant just South of Virginia Tech on S. Main Street. This is a nice place for breakfast. Typical American menu, eggs & bacon or sausage, french toast, waffles, biscuits, sausage gravy over biscuits, home fries, omelettes. Or get a fresh BLT for breakfast like my wife. This is a main stay... More

First time at Famous Anthony's. Large menu of quick cheap food. I have the mozzarella chicken sandwich. Just a breaded chicken patty with some marinara and cheese on top with the same mass distributed french fries available at most restaurants. Pretty typical, family restaurant for a small town. Nothing to write home about and wouldn't recommend to a friend. Dylan... More

Famous Anthony's has a massive menu but the food is on the lower quality side. Premade stuff. I go when I want cheap food; but otherwise it's not a favorite stop honestly. Breakfast is usually best option and it's pretty good.

My husband and I came after hearing many people talk about this restaurant. When we first arrived we really like the atmosphere and low lighting inside. However, we only saw our waitress twice. Once to take our order and once to bring our food. We waited almost 20 min for her to bring our check which is when I finally... More

My family, extended to my 82 yr old father have had multiple good to very good breakfast dining experiences here. Service, food quality, atmosphere seen to work well. The standouts are French toast, eggs, very good sausage, pancakes, biscuit sandwiches etc. Not expensive, and way better than poor quality and service you might get at down town Waffle House.

I remember eating here a decade ago while still in college, and it doesn't seem like much has changed. I went for breakfast with my family as we were down for my brother-in-laws graduation. We were sat quickly, although the hostess didn't really seem like she cared if we were there or not. No kids menu and really no speaking... More
