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.

Local products, always fresh and always delicious! The portions are huge and one can experience classic breakfast dishes or Currence's New Orleans influence on some really creative dishes. Service is great, atmosphere is joyous, this is the finest Oxford has to offer!

When in Oxford my husband loves breakfast here. The skillets are great. The omelets are tasty. Good service. Sat at bar and enjoyed visiting big with folks around us.

The first time we tried to go here, we couldn't find it. This time we were determined. The waitress we had was very friendly. You can tell by the waiting line outside on a 30 degree Saturday morning that the food's good. We enjoyed the breakfast and will be back.

We had a great breakfast at BBB this morning. Their food, service and quality overall is ALWAYS top notch. This is a great way to try a John Currence restaurant at a low price point of about $10-$14 per plate. The meats are locally cured and their phenomenal grits are locally sourced as well.

I've waited a long time to finally man-up for steak & eggs. BBB was the place to have it. Everything that came with it was excellent, including the in-house special steak sauce. My sidekick went for the waffle, and he was not disappointed. It's a nice place to go if you feel like having an extra-special breakfast.

Loved eating here in college. Miss the portion sizes... biscuits are smaller and they don't leave jam on the tables anymore (best jam ever!), but the food is still incredible. Oh and are those bloody Mary's spicy!!

After enjoying a dinner at Boure we skipped breakfast at the hotel to enjoy breakfast here instead. So glad we did!!! First, it is so kitschy and cool on the inside. Great atmosphere. Service was outstanding. Fun and friendly. Food was excellent. We love eggs benny and have an ongoing quest for the best benny. This one would be top... More
