This sandwich is so hard to describe without salivating all over my keyboard. Start with toast, add bacon or sausage, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, and your choice of cheese. The Tabasco aioli brings everything together with a creamy kick!!!

The food was great although a tad pricey for the portion I received (cat Head chicken). Side of grits was excellent. My sons and I ate there 2 days in a row. Be prepared to wait a while for a table.

Large menu and quick service. While the kitchen is not real fast,, the food was delicious Looking for Southern cooking, they've got it and a whole lot more. Better get there early as the line forms early on the weekends!

Been going to big bad breakfast for years and have generally had good experiences. Had a friend in town this weekend and it was his favorite spot for breakfast until today. Three of us ate and all left feeling sickly from the awful “bad” experience....More
