If you're in Tuscaloosa- You have to try the Waysider. A favorite of Coach Bryant and simply an institution. Eggs are cooked perfectly and service is always great. I highly recommend. If you try to go during a game day weekend make sure your technology...More

My wife & I found this restaurant for breakfast and realized it was a "locals" kind of place, which we loved. It's a very small place, and has been there for many years. I had two eggs and bacon, grits, and homemade biscuits which were...More

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.

This time visiting the Waysider was much easier to get seated. We last went in the fall and it was packed! Got seated immediately. Waiter was great. Homemade biscuits were outstanding. I had a BLT on the small side but adequate. The rest of our...More

Heard about the Waysider so decided to try it for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We arrived about 9:15 AM on a non-game day. The restaurant is not large so a wait is sort of expected. If you are looking for fine dining and exhaustive...More

Extremely small venue and locally owned. This is a great place to stop if you're visiting Tuscaloosa. You get that small town vibe while dining in the living room of an old house. ESPN has featured this place many times. The breakfast selections are standard...More
