With all the heavy announcements of friends and colleagues we gave it a try. And we dont get it at all. It is just not special. Yeah it has the nice decoration with football memorabilia but the breakfast we had was just not good. The...More

We were a party of five for breakfast. The dining area is small and very cramped. We waited outside for 25 minutes. Once inside we waited 10minutes to have our order taken then the food took forever to appear. The wait was not worth the...More

A fun casual atmosphere that hasn't been updated in 30+ years. A lady came out of the kitchen every 20 minutes and led a Role Tide Roll chant. Had a very good ham omelette and grits special.

This is a great place for breakfast when it doesn’t have an hour wait. It is cramped and dilapidated but has the best biscuits anywhere. Lunch to me is just okay but the breakfast is the best in town.

One of those places to visit when in Tuscaloosa, or used to be. It's hard to mess up on breakfast. Service has gotten slow and you're packed in so tight it's hard to enjoy your food. My advice, take a couple tables out and speed...More

We (6 friends) visited the Waysider not long ago and enjoyed everything! We loved the donuts, eggs, grits, bacon, sausage, juice, coffee, fruit and most of all-BISCUITS! This is a must visit place if you are in the area.

Had breakfast here and didn't eat until next day!! Lovely old house stuffed full with regulars. Almost don't need a menu...you want it, they fix it. Had a vegetable omelette with grits on side with tomato gravy and thought I'd gone to heaven. Forgot the...More
