Come hungry, big portions, great service and house scratch biscuits to die for. Standard favorites and unique southern creations- great value. Don't miss breakfast here

My family and I were in Oxford for a spring break outing. We discovered Big Bad Breakfast through the TripAdvisor app and chose to try it on Saturday morning of our trip. I had the Southwestern Skillet meal and my other family members had pancakes and omelettes. The food was absolutely amazing. We will definitely return to Big Bad Breakfast... More

My family went drove 7 hours to eat here back in February and it was worth every bit of the drive. We are a larger family (6 kids) and they were incredibly accommodating, the food was fantastic (especially the Pain Perdue), and then to top it off, another one of the patrons picked up our tab!! I have 2 of... More

This is easily the best place in Oxford to get breakfast. Their Bacon is the best and a must order for every visit!

Very Nice people, but... the food has my iron stomach churning. The grits without cheese taste like nothing but cheese so I traded for sausage gravy but it tastes like cheese too ??? The sausage patty taste like oregano. And I like hot and spicy but not in my bacon please. Waffle House where are you ! Sorry but this... More

In town for ball game at Ole Miss and found this place on internet. A friend living nearby also happened to be there and said it is extremely popular among the locals. It was packed at 9:30 on a Thursday morning. I had the Creola skillet, a concoction of egg, crawfish, cheese, sausage, peppers, etc. It didn't look real big... More

The breakfast was top notch. Chef salad was also very good. It is known for its bacon which was awesome.

My daughter and I are "Breakfast People". Our days revolve around the most important meal of the day. Because we now reside in New England, we incorporate and plan for breakfast when back in the South. BBB was the best meal we had while visiting Ole Miss, we even stay an extra day so that we could experience the breakfast... More

The wait was over an hour on a Sunday morning but worth the wait. We had the skillets and they were incredible- with 3 eggs almost too big to eat. The homemade jam is not to be missed. Had the cheese grits- get them!!! Service was friendly and we sat at the bar stools. Very popular with the Oxford crowd!

Eclectic surroundings - like a small-town diner of the past. Lively, and fun. Breakfast menu features typical Southern and American offerings -- including omelets, skillets, pancakes, eggs any way you want them, biscuits, cheesy grits. Menu is interesting, but the food and service are average and it always leaves me wondering if the wait for a table was worth it.

Thank Mary W
