This is my favorite place in the neighborhood. Everything on the menu is great. I have taken almost everyone I know here at some point or anougher and converted them all. There can be a line but for good reason.

Allegedly the best pancakes in the world. Fact Check: True. This place had a great variety on the menu and everything we had was well executed. I didn't feel like I had enough tattoos to really fit in but the place was friendly and the food was really good. FYI, don't even try to park a large van in the... More

We have some great places for breakfast in Atlanta but now may have our new number one. Yes we had to wait. Parking was not easy. If you have time and want some creative and well prepared food this is the place. We had the brisket with poached eggs and shrimps and grits. At the recommendation of our server since... More

The pancakes here a phenomenal!! Prepare yourself for a sweet treat that is more like dessert than breakfast. Be prepared to wait a while, as we arrived around 10:30 on a Sunday and waited about 2 hours for a table for 4 people.

The restaurant is a fantastic place for breakfast! I loved the quaint location, the décor, and atmosphere. I had a traditional breakfast which consisted of grits, breakfast potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, and biscuit (everything was great!). When I say the food at Ria's is delicious; it is delicious and the service was awesome, too (Trevor was friendly and stayed on... More

We arrived at Ria's at 8:25 on a Saturday morning and all the tables inside were taken. I added our name to the list and we waited for 5 minutes before we were seated in the enclosed, heated, covered porch out back. The music was pretty loud, but we could have a conversation. I had banana and pecan pancakes with... More

We had to wait a pretty long time. But the wait was well worth it! The pancakes with the bananas was SO good!! The food was fresh and so well made. I actually had a chance to speak with the chef/cook. The staff and workers were very gracious and I loved the atmosphere.

Well, how could you resist having pancakes which The NY Times declared as the best? Somehow we timed our visit perfectly and didn't have to suffer waiting outside. The bacon and sausage are divine.

I had the shrimp and grits, which were too soupy for my taste and a bit bland. I had high hopes for this dish when I read the menu, but the delivery was subpar. The poblano peppers were nice, but they seemed to add too little to the overall "blah" dish. The other entrees at my table seemed OK, but... More

I'd give this a 5 if not for the rude hostess at the front door. I enjoyed my vegetarian dish the Huevos, Grilled blue corn tortillas with black or pinto beans, topped with white cheddar, 2 eggs fried, salsa verde & sour cream. Was excellent and huge I took some home and had for supper. We enjoyed a cup of... More
