This place has great food and Attitude

Great breakfast or brunch place in bham. Not to easy for Gfree peeps but tasty for good ole hash and eggs and other great stuff. Love the homemade sauces and the decor is entertaining. You might have a wait and don't linger long after but enjoy.

Eclectic, fun, happy, run by an energetic wait staff and dedicated owners. Good is fantastic. Get the skillets. Don't forget to take a trip to the bizarre/unique "clown" bathroom. Loved this place.

It took a while to get in, but I expected that. The food was generous and filling. The decor quirky and staff nice. Whoever was behind the bar kept singing, which was pretty great. I like the neighborhood. Be aware that they do not seat tables of more than 4 people, no exceptions.

We found this restaurant on Yelp, we were looking for somewhere to eat for breakfast and this place did not disappoint. It feels like a restaurant that would be featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We didn’t have to wait in line, but behind us some people did. It can get very busy and it’s a small restaurant... More

This was our first visit here, even though we have been meaning to come for years come here for years. It's a cute, eclectic atmosphere, and the food is decent. The only bummer is that it is painfully obvious that they want you to eat and get out. A slogan of "Eat it and beat it" combined with a waitress... More

What a find. My friends told me to find a place for breakfast and I found this joint!! WOW! I exceeded expectations of our group with this place. I ordered granola, fruit & yogurt. It was awesome, fantastic, excellent. My spouse had corned beef hash, the best he'd ever had!! It was SO good he got about a half cup... More

I've eaten here in the past and it was awesome!! This morning, 10/8/15 however was a different experience. We got there early and were the only ones there. This waiter was obviously NOT ready to provide service on ANY level. I ended up walking out of a restaurant before placing an order for the first time in ten years. It... More

Fantastic food and lots of it. It is impossible to leave hungry. Best breakfast in town! Highly recommend the chicken fried steak.

We went here with friends for breakfast. The portions are large, and it's reasonably priced. It's hard to get into because it's so busy. I would suggest they change nothing. Don't expand, it's the fact that it's so busy and the food is always consistent that makes it such a popular place to go.

In fact I was really P O'd by the time I left. Our server neglected to bring the hot sauce bucket even after I had signaled to her several times. Each time she held up a finger as if to say she's busy - & gave me a censorious look. I had huevos rancheros which needed a sauce. I finally... More
