This was the best breakfast I had during my Memphis trip with regards to food quality. There is a decent amount of parking and the prices are good. The only detractors are that it only takes cash, has a very long line (although that is evident of how good it is), and there is limited seating (also because it is... More

Simple menu, but done right. Friendly service, fresh ingredients, delicious food. It can get crowded but they serve quickly. Good value for the money. If you want a simple but delicious breakfast, this is the place!

I don't give many five-star reviews. To me, to be five-star, somewhere has to do what they do to perfection, and be among the very best of that kind of restaurant/hotel anywhere. So Bryant's is not the fanciest breakfast you will ever have. It won't be the most creative breakfast you ever have. But it's not trying to do those... More

The philly omelet and biscuits and gravy were both great. They only accept cash, no cards. Would recommend everyone to eat here for breakfast. My family had the chocolate chip pancakes, bacon pancakes and sausage omelet with biscuits and gravy and all of them loved their food.

If you want a fast breakfast go somewhere else. If you want a good ole country breakfast, prepare to stand in line, pay cash, wait a while and chow down. I will say that the only thing I don't care for is the gravy. It seems a little pasty to me, but my husband slurped it right down, but as... More

Found this jewel 2 yrs ago when my fiance and I were on our way to New Orleans. Took the kids to Memphis this weekend and Bryant's did not fail to wow. Counter order authentic country ham and biscuits!!! Live in Illinois but takes me back to my Kentucky roots!

I don't think I'll be eating for a couple of days after enjoying a great breakfast at Bryant's. The food is traditional southern! Fresh, hot, and served with a smile. My kids loved coming here and really enjoyed the cinnamon bread French toast. The pancakes where very good with lots of options, and the southern breakfast included all of my... More

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
