This place is pretty small, but it reminds me of a quaint, country diner. There are bluebird knickknacks everywhere and the bar was really cute. The food, of course, was good. There was a bit of a wait, though--about 15 minutes. I attribute this to the small size of the place and it's popularity. We ordered the pancake stack with... More

Real neat place to start your day. Great items for breakfast included buttermilk pancakes with carmelized bananas or their frittata. Go and have a nice breakfast and the service was superb.

Every time I go there is always a long wait...but it's worth the wait every time. Love this place. I try to go at least once a month. The portions and prices are great. Always leave in a food coma. Great place if you are in from out of town or if you just want to try a new brunch... More

We got to Ria's right as they opened and were happy we did because they got busy quick with tables filling up. Prices were very reasonable and service was very friendly. Thought it was great that they made espresso drinks as well and were not over priced. Would return when we are in Atlanta next time and try their lunch.

My boyfriend and I ate at Ria's this morning. We waited 30 minutes at our table for our breakfast burritos to come out which was not worth the wait and too long to wait for breakfast. Way too many black beans compared to the egg and hash browns that were barley present inside. I had the sausage patty side which... More

My Family and I visited Atlanta last week on vacation after seeing this on TV (I can't remember the show). Anyways, it was the BEST restaurant we went to while we were in Atlanta...in fact, we went here TWICE because it was so good!!! Their pancakes are the best restaurant pancakes I've ever eaten, and their breakfast burrito was awesome... More

Despite the fact you may have a little wait the staff is friendly and the food is great. Just keep in mind there is a strict no substitutions policy. The menu does provide some great variety and does have health conscious options.

My biggest complaint: they cook everything in peanut oil. They don't or at least they didn't attempt for my group to cook a meal separate from the peanut oil. Since our group was so large, we were seated in the back. With a covering that provides shade, it was still hot and one of my dinner guests was in the... More

I had the fat stack pancakes w/ caramelized bananas, simply amazing. Another had the Bionic breakfast w/ tofu and claimed it was her best breakfast since the last time we were @ Ria's. There is likely going tone a wait time, especially on a Sunday, but the food, fresh squeezed o.j. and the staff make it worth your wait.

Wonderful local ambience and great southern breakfast. Ideal for breakfast or brunch. Nice menu with the usual breakfast options and some great southern fare - I had the shrimp and grits with poblanos. Wow. Wonderful. Definitely recommended.
