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.

Bryants breakfast should be world famous. Lines run out the door and you get there and think there is no way you're going to hang in the line, but the line goes fast. While in line you think there will be no where to sit, but again by the time you get your order in suddenly there is a place... More

My husband and myself first found this place by accident back in 2013 when we were going threw TN. Just by mouth a local told us about this place and after trying it, we fell in love with it. Just recently we took a trip to Texas, and we promised ourselves when we go back home that we would stop... More

Bryant's is a great option for those who want great food and plenty of it. The sampler covers all the bases, 4 meats, 3 eggs, biscuits, gravy, grits, and hash browns. Friendly staff, and clientele. Be patient, and prepared to order when you get to the counter. Tight spaces inside.

Great breakfast. You have to wait in line to order, then they bring it to your table. service is pretty quick. I talked to a local in line with us. She said it was the best breakfast in town and she was right. Make sure you get the home made biscuits they are wonderful. They give you 3. Remember though,... More
