    Not into food presentation, but they probably don't need to! Guy's scramble and chocolate chip pancake are so amazing! Their Bloody Mary, Hot Maria, is to die for! Love this place.

    Plenty of your favorite breakfast options! Large portions. Lots of morning burrito/taco choices. Be prepared to wait for a looong time--it is always slammed on weekends. Free snack while you wait.

    Weekend wait was just over an hour for table for two. Don't see what all the hype is about. Ole Miss plate was way sweeter (and filling) than I had hoped. Decent pricing and service though!

    After waiting for 30 minutes to get a table, the waiter decided to give our table to a group of girls instead and put us back to the end of the list! Awful service.
