Biscuits are huge and tasty. Local favorite and is very popular. Can't go wrong here for breakfast. Plan ahead as there is typically a wait and long line on weekend mornings.

The new Mama’s Boy at The Falls is incredible! The facility is clean and pretty. Nothing fancy but I like it. However, I have gluten issues so there isn’t a lot on the menu for me to eat aside from eggs and bacon. But they...More

Mama’s Boy comes highly recommended from anyone we asked about breakfast ideas. We had the half serving of peach French toast and it was delicious. We left stuffed and satisfied. This is a must for breakfast.

It is usually very crowded inside and on the patio so I would not advise bringing a dog inside. The wait staff moves quickly and efficiently. I really enjoy going to this restaurant.
