Busy place but good food. Don't let the appearance fool you. One of the best local breakfasts. Only place you can see a wait for breakfast. And it is worth it!

Great breakfast. Try the potato skins to start. The red eye gravy is good on the grits and biscuits. Don’t forget the honey that’s on the table.

Breakfast for 2- less than $20. Super great food, excellent, welcoming service and quaint decor. We’ve decided it’s our know go-to breakfast when in T-town!

Great breakfast joint with great food. Very popular and a small dining area so get there early. I had the special, sausage cheese omelette, and it was amazing! The biscuits are "slap yo mama" good.

We enjoyed the Waysider's breakfast on a recent weekend trip back to Tuscaloosa to catch a Bama basketball ball. For over 40 years, the Waysider hasn't disappointed us. Breakfast is delicious! Yes, the place is tight and cramped and the wait can often be long....More

A fun casual atmosphere that hasn't been updated in 30+ years. A lady came out of the kitchen every 20 minutes and led a Role Tide Roll chant. Had a very good ham omelette and grits special.

This is a great place for breakfast when it doesn’t have an hour wait. It is cramped and dilapidated but has the best biscuits anywhere. Lunch to me is just okay but the breakfast is the best in town.
