Tasted good...had to get up from the counter and go to the coffee area to get a cup filled even with a server filling the cup next to me!😳 overpriced for eclectic experience.

Its location in a nondescript shopping strip must not discourage you: this is the quintessence of American breakfast. Food, decor (eclectic verging on the indescribable) and very warm hospitality embody the spirit of the diner breakfast perfectly. My wife and I were content with the basic breakfast (bacon, eggs, grits, biscuits) flawlessly prepared: but the menu offered many well-chosen variations... More

I was told that Big Bad Breakfast was the new great breakfast place in Oxford. After a night of enjoying perhaps a bit too much nightlife, a good brunch (we slept past breakfast time) was in order. This is another one of John Currence's successful restaurants. If you aren't familiar with him, look him up and try all of his... More

BBB is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the food, the service and the atmosphere. If we want breakfast, this is where we always eat. Everything on the menu is good.

You better be hungry when you hit this place. Best breakfast I've had since the Camelia Grill in New Orleans and that's saying a lot!

This is a must every time I make it to Oxford. Be prepared to wait, but it is worth it. I am slowly making my way through the menu. I got the Creole skillet this morning and my wife got the pancakes. Don't forget the cheese grits!

Everything at BBB is good, but their bacon is DIVINE! It tends to be really crowded during football season, but the tables turn over pretty quickly.

Come hungry, big portions, great service and house scratch biscuits to die for. Standard favorites and unique southern creations- great value. Don't miss breakfast here

My family and I were in Oxford for a spring break outing. We discovered Big Bad Breakfast through the TripAdvisor app and chose to try it on Saturday morning of our trip. I had the Southwestern Skillet meal and my other family members had pancakes and omelettes. The food was absolutely amazing. We will definitely return to Big Bad Breakfast... More
