Ole Miss vs Memphis weekend with small kids

We are joining our daughter's family with 2 boys who are 8 and 9 and our son and his 5 year old son for the weekend of Oct. 1 ( Fri - Sat). What are suggestions for the 8 of us to eat Sat. breakfast/lunch and Sunday breakfast? One family has to leave about 10 to fly out of Memphis. Anything special that the boys would be interested in doing Sat. morning? Thanks

Big Bad Breakfast is the place to go for breakfast in Oxford Imogen.

For little boys you could go out to the lake and John Kyle State park or walk around campus.

Pirates House is an indoor amusement park.

Also could go over to Tupelo and visit Buffalo park and Zoo. (About 45 minute drive.)

One other possibility for breakfast is the Beacon on North Lamar. The prices are very reasonable, the service is fast and the food is fantastic. They stop serving breakfast around 9:30. If you miss breakfast there, lunch is also nice. Old fashioned burgers and onion rings are our favorites. If you want a chain restaurant, try the Huddle House on W Jackson Ave. If the boys want any Ole Miss fan gear, take a trip to Rebel Rags.

Enjoy the weekend. I sold my tix to this game and will be watching it on TV. Go Rebels!

Thank you so much. Can you guess what time we need to get to Big Bad Breakfast to avoid a long wait?
