Wanted to like this place more. Maybe we just hit it on an off day --- Went here for lunch, and I'm thinking that breakfast must be much better -- but unfortunately we weren't in MEM long enough to test that theory. The waitstaff could...More

The sliding doors towards the kitchen revieled the worst mess I have ever seen in a restaurant kitchen! So full of dirt on the floor and walls, shelfs etc. Really unbelievable that they are allowed to be open at all. Dont go there!

Glad we went. Wait was reasonable. The sweet potato pancakes were crazy good! Everything else was ok but not really hot. Our server was friendly but not very attentive.

The nostalgic factor gets people coming here. Not to mention its one of the only places to get early breakfast. The b&g with chicken, a redneck as they call it, was heated up chicken strips from the frozen section and the gravy was pasty and...More

There's a fair number of items that are dairy free, and they were happy to accommodate my dairy allergy by omitting the cheese! Enjoy!

Parking is on the street. It's not a high traffic area. I've never had to walk far.

As I recall the prices were on the moderate side. Probably under $10 each for a breakfast.
