The place was packed out at 9AM. BUT, well worth the wait. We made our way to the back room, placed our order and even with the mad RUSH, speedy service and a great waitress to boot. Love this place. Just not open on Sunday.

We went to this restaurant because my niece use to go there while she was a student at Ole Miss. We had breakfast. It was very good and the wait staff were very nice. I would recommend this for breakfast.

What a spectacular Southern breakfast. The biscuits and gravy are terrific and the coffee is just good old fashioned coffee. There's nothing fancy about this, and the breakfast chow harkens back to a different time when hard physical work countered the effects of cholesterol-laded farm...More
