Extremely small venue and locally owned. This is a great place to stop if you're visiting Tuscaloosa. You get that small town vibe while dining in the living room of an old house. ESPN has featured this place many times. The breakfast selections are standard and the food is all good...the biscuits are a step above good!

One of the oldest and best home cooking in Tuscaloosa. If you want a meat and veggies this is the place to go and the prices are very reasonable. Also has a dang good breakfast!

One of the best places to get a hearty breakfast in the metroplex. They have the best wait staff in T-town! Super friendly and fun.

They make a decent breakfast, nothing fantastic but marginally good. Been in business a long time. Atmosphere is kind of crappy like your eating in a nursing home or something but the food is ok.

Good breakfast food. Eggs however you like including poached. Grits good, add butter for the best flavor. Country ham center cut is personal favorite. Waits can be long at peak times. Historical in that Bear Bryant frequented this establishment.

This is probably THE BEST breakfast I've ever eaten. Amazing beignets, biscuits and pancakes. The staff is amazingly friendly and service was great.

Visiting my granddaughter at school in Tuscaloosa, we gladly waited almost an hour on a Saturday morning to cross the old wooden floor to a back table near the walls covered with photographs of famous moments in Alabama football history. There, we were served the most delicious southern food for breakfast: grits, eggs, bacon, potatoes, wonderful coffee and biscuits not... More

Parking is in back and kinda hard to find and they are not open on Monday. But the effort to find them is well worth it. They make the most wonderful, soft, warm, fresh little southern biscuits! The place is also covered in Univ. of Alabama memorabilia. We ate at a table with the bust of Paul "bear" Bryant! The... More

Amazing biscuits and even better beignets! They make absolutely wonderful tomato gravy, and the hashbrowns are one of a kind! The restaurant is charming and fits Tuscaloosa perfectly. A must go in Tuscaloosa!
