Great food and service

Great chocolate chip pancakes and bacon. I'm not sure the NY Times got it right with the best in the US... Great service. Breakfast with a Mexican flair. Packed house on a Monday at 10:30 am.

This was probably the best breakfast I've had since I don't remember when. Stopped by on our way to Florida and wished we were staying in Atlanta to try all the menu item. Huevos was fantastic! Black beans, egg.... Fantastically seasoned perfectly prepared. Looking for reasons to visit Atlanta so we can have breakfast here again!!

I just love Ria's Blubird , the atmosphere, food and the staff is just worth the short wait. We went on Thursday and had to wait in for 10 minutes but let me tell you it was worth it. We will defiantly come back when we visit ATL in July 2016

I don't live anywhere near Ria's but was told by a co-worker about this place and we decided to meet here for brunch. My co-worker, a veteran of Ria's, was going on and on about how delicious everything was, especially the pancakes. When I arrived there, I noticed how small the parking lot was (I was lucky to find a... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to eat lunch, and we found this place. Loved the atmosphere, despite the slight crampedness (would probably recommend coming when it's not too busy). I had the chicken salad croissant; absolutely delicious. Parking is a bit....odd, but survivable. Oh, and they don't let you split checks, so be careful! Look for... More

The food was tasty and cooked just right. Grits, pancakes, breakfast burrito were on our order. We will go back soon. The have a lovely rock fountain in the enclosed outdoor dining area. **Avoid outside seating near the kitchen door. Sometimes a worker is smoking and, with the often open door, it easily wafts through the dining area.

We finally made it to this very popular restaurant and it did not disappoint. Pancakes and egg dishes were excellent. Coffee was good. Friendly service. Go early because it's small and the wait can be long.

Great brunch choice with delicious pancakes (for which I gather they are most famous). But I was most pleasantly surprised however by the banh mi sandwich. Would highly recommend that meal option.
