My wife and I left our home about 9:30 last Saturday morning with the list of errands and the intention of checking off another Memphis culinary staple so we could say "Been there, done that, move on". After a 21 mile drive, we arrived to find the parking lot full and customers were quickly filling up the adjoining restaurant parking... More

It may not be the most convenient location for you, but it's worth making the drive once in a while to have breakfast here. We went on a Saturday morning, around 8:15. You wait in line and place your order at the counter. They bring the food to you, and the wait is not long. My wife really enjoyed her... More

I'd echo some of the other critics who said the breakfast was bland, except that I'd add that it was still good. More than the food I think The experience is worth stopping by - IF and only if you appreciate the kind of vibe that comes from a bustling hole-in-the-wall clearly enamored by the locals. I got there at... More

A solid country breakfast with eggs to order, bacon and sausage, biscuits and good coffee makes me happy, and this place gets it done. An efficient staff and a really good owner running it makes for an ideal place for the kind of old school, Southern breakfast you'll be glad to stand in line for. The line moves quickly.

A little place that is well worth the stop. Not a place to go if you're in a hurry, but if you're hungry this is the stop for breakfast. For $9.99 I got the Scrambler special which is 3 eggs, hashbrowns, choice of meat, Green Peppers and Mushrooms with shredded Cheddar Cheese, plus 3 biscuits with grits and gravy on... More

Really good food at a reasonable price. Biscuits were perfect and portions were just right. Staff were busting their butt to get you your food fast and did so with a smile. A loud enough place that let's the sounds of your kids disappear among the bustle. THANK YOU!

Bryant's is a local breakfast dive that doesn't look like much but the quality of the food and service is legendary in Memphis. Located on Summer Ave just off the corner of Graham it is a former BBQ resturant converted to a counter order seat yourself dive that serves a melting pot of cultures. The order line is long but...

This has been my go to breakfast place for years. It's not much to look at on the outside but the food inside will bring you back for more. A must try if you are in the area.

Bryant's is the best breakfast with the best price. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of eggs, pancakes, French toast, and all the fixings. The biscuits were fresh, hot and delicious. There was limited seating available and a line out the door when we arrived but the process was quick. You order at the counter and the food is prepared and... More
