“Oxford Staple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

I make a trip back to Oxford at least twice a year and BBB is always on my list of stops. Although it's location can be a little hard to find/deceiving (it's located in a very quiet strip mall off the main drag of town), this place is nothing but special. Typically on weekends (starting friday mornings) you'll find a wait for a table. However, there are benches, tables and newspapers available outside and you can even get yourself a cup of coffee to wet your whistle while you're waiting. For me, this is all part of the experience. The restaurant itself reminds you of a classic diner crossed with your grandmothers kitchen. It's warm, homey and inviting. One of my favorite places to sit if you're flying solo or have a party of two is this to sit at the bar. Service seems to be faster over here and it's fun watching the wait staff and cooks do their thing. The service and staff is extremely friendly, accomodating and efficient. However, it is the food that really steals the show. The menu consists of standard breakfast favorites as well as more imaginative dishes. They use high quality, locally sourced ingredients and it is reflected in the quality of the food. Some of the menu highlights for me are the tomato gravy, anduoille sausage, and the "with signs following" breakfast sandwich (SO GOOD!) First timer's typically go for the "Big Bad Breakfast" plate which is a great way to get a little bit of everything. Oh and, the homemade jams are great too!

“Above average food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

I had the breakfast shrimp dish with eggs. It did not "Knock my socks off" but it was very good. Service is friendly, great coffee.

“Finally!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

After trying to eat here on several previous visits, I made it! We ordered oatmeal pancakes and the "big bad breakfast" I was not disappointed! Food was plentiful and delicious. It was a little more expensive than some breakfast places, but if got my fill and was able to skip lunch. I'll stand in line for this breakfast any day!

“Breakfast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This place is small, and sweet! The friendly staff goes well with the old time diner feel, and the food is so good! Can't wait to go back

“It's a destination!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My comment on why this place was so crowded on a random Tuesday morning got that reply. I didn't know how famous this great breakfast place in, to me, a random old shopping center was! Well I soon found out what all the fuss is about. The Shrimp and Grits was a great choice.
