Best Breakfast In Town!

My husband and I eat here all the time! There's not a bad item on the menu! Love the retro feel of the place, service is always great and the food is delicious! Their pancakes are crave-worthy and HUGE! I also love their lighter option of the Big Bad Lean Breakfast. The local jellies they offer are... read more

I've been there twice, once when it opened for a chicken salad lunch and once more recently for breakfast. Both times the food was just mediocre. BBB's popularity may stem from Oxford's paucity of good breakfast places.

This place is great. 2 in party got the Belgian waffle--both really liked, but one swore it was a regular waffle, didn't have the taste of a real Belgian. I didn't care, mine was fabulous. However, they had NO BACON! How can you serve breakfast all day & not have bacon?? My husband got the over-easy egg, ham, grits, biscuit... More

More lunch than brunch this time, eating a hamburger with mac & cheese on the side and some house made bacon. I had the Creola Skillet, which is made of scrambled eggs, crawfish, onion, tomatoes, hash and cheddar The hamburger was excellent, the skillet was good but not my best meal at BBB. The service was wondefull, as always.

We had a nice breakfast in this quaint venue filled with memorabilia and kitschy decor! The skillets were amazing and the egg white omelet was fluffy and flavorful! You must order a biscuit with their homemade strawberry jelly also! Good and fast service rounded off the experience - I recommend this adorable place.

After a morning tour of the charming town of Oxford, a late breakfast sounded mighty appealing for famished travelers who were getting back on the road. Big Bad Breakfast popped up on social media as a place to go, so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a strip mall, which isn't always... More

Went here for a late breakfast/early lunch. My wife had a waffle and I had a quesadilla. Both were OK, but neither were particularly better than fare at other restaurants in town for less money. The waffle was $10.00 without drinks or sides. Good waffle, but not a $10 waffle!

I haven't been here in a long time but went last week when I was back in town. The service was bad but that can be pretty typical in a college town so that's not what prompted me to write a review. It was the food. I know this place is expensive for breakfast but I don't mind because the... More

We have been to BBB several times now and enjoyed it every time. The food is freshly made and the service is prompt and not overbearing. We had eggs over medium, grits, home fries, andoullie sausage, and bacon. We both had biscuits. Sausages and bacon are smoked in BBB's smokehouse. BBB also make its own jellies and preserves.
