This has been my go to breakfast place for years. It's not much to look at on the outside but the food inside will bring you back for more. A must try if you are in the area.

Bryant's is the best breakfast with the best price. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of eggs, pancakes, French toast, and all the fixings. The biscuits were fresh, hot and delicious. There was limited seating available and a line out the door when we arrived but the process was quick. You order at the counter and the food is prepared and... More

Based on reviews we stopped into Bryant's for breakfast while in Memphis. Long line but it moves quickly due to their very efficient service! We had pancakes, eggs, sausage and bacon which were cooked to perfection with large portions. Cash only establishment with a great breakfast.

If you're looking for a good ole southern breakfast this is your place. It's delicious, reasonably priced, and so much food. What more could you ask for?

One of my favorite breakfast places in Memphis. Good old fashioned Southern breakfast items in a "no frills" environment. Morning to lunch time hours and reasonable prices. Love their home made cobblers too!

The best bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit I have ever eaten, seriously!!!! There is always a line, but it moves pretty fast. The food is worth the wait!

This little hole in the wall has the best breakfast around! Bacon is awesome, eggs any way you like, & the grits are just the right amount of buttery! Biscuits & gravy are good too. Come hungry! You get way more than you can eat!

Sure there was a line -- always is. It moved quickly. Everyone was efficient and patrons as well as staff were friendly. A must go! I will try pancakes next time.

You have to order at the front counter, than the waiters/waitresses will bring you your food. Loved the biscuits and gravy and french toast. A lot on the menu to choose from if you have a southern food sweet spot.
