Husband went here last week, had the catfish, proclaimed it dry and tasteless. Today we did breakfast for lunch (bkfst served all day), better experience. He had eggs over-easy and bacon with big biscuits. Said the biscuits didn't compare to his mother's but were very...good. Eggs done right. I had two-egg scramble with cheese and bacon, grits on side. Grits could have been creamier but they were fine and eggs were filling. We didn't have the coffee but juice. Big portions, friendly atmosphere, fast service, clean bathrooms, definitely a neighborhood hangout. Each breakfast was about $10 each, going rate. Parking easy. Recommend! We'll return.More

Get there before the morning lines. Order at the front counter and then find a table. Really good ( and large) portions. Pancakes are first rate as are the many egg choices. Good sides of bacon and sausage. Free parking in front.

The line is out the door so one would think that this place has great food. Not!! It was probably was one of the most blandest meals I have ever had. I was extremely disappointed with it abd really am not sure what the attraction...is other than maybe location. It did have a neat dining room but even that did not make up for probably one of the lamest breakfast meals I have ever had.More

I have visited the Bissonet location for 40 years. A justly famous place. The Voss Road location is, if anything, even better. Exciting, trendy atmosphere, marvellous food, moderate to pricey. We had breakfast for 4; price was $53.00. It was definitely worth it.

A breakfast favorite, we like the large portions and generally tasty meals. Most menu items are a la carte. Scrambled eggs with hash browns, a biscuit with gravy, bacon, two raspberry pancakes - that was my order. The wife got coffee, a scrambled egg, and...a wheat pancake. A couple of issues and a tip. Go early to beat the church crowd on Sunday. The hash browns were undercooked, but I didn't mention it to the counter. They have a new meat supplier, a Texas company. The bacon wasn't nearly as good as before, this was a big fail for me. Total bill for two was just under $35. Final score, 4.More

We went to enjoy the outdoor courtyard dining with our dog. The tables are made of wooden pallets that were covered in bird droppings. Never cleaned. The food is poor quality that is smothered in cheese in the hope that will make it taste better....Very disappointed.More

I had omelette with mushrooms, spinach and bell peppers. I couldn't finish it as it was huge. I only had one bite of the biscuit that came with the meal as I was given enough food for a small army. I ordered the side of...hash browns enough for several people. He ordered the migas. Came with lots of beans and tortillas. What we left could have easily feed a third person. Next time, we'll get one order and share.More

Wow. I used to go out of my way if I was in the area to come to this place for breakfast. It takes hard work for the cook to literally overcook the outside of the thin omelette and leave the inside runny with the...cold cheese and crappy cubed ham. So I took it back, because no one that orders an omelette eats eggs sunny side up. They practically argued with me about the fact that it was done wrong. She said "fine I redo it". I told her let's just do a scramble. Can't screw that up. Uhhh...yes you can. Once again over cooked scramble. The fact that a breakfast place doesn't have separate iced coffee in today's world is a little weird. This isn't a diner. You should have iced coffee. They gave me shaved ice which melted 100% when I poured hot coffee over it. The well done hash browns was the only plus. They were crispy and plentiful. I liked those, hence the one star here. Had I gotten a decent service with even the slightest smile or proper attitude that I used to get at this place I would give it two to three stars as I find quality of food and cook service has its own star. I will not return. Sad.More
