This restaurant has the best omelettes! I have eaten here several times over the last 10 years and have not been disappointed. Highly recommended for breakfast and/or brunch.

Great as always!!! But our server, Nicholas wears a scary clown mask, and as a grown woman, throws me a little, not to mention I think it would scare a child!! All the other servers and associates are wearing plain masks......it's the second or 3rd time we have been there and have seen him.......everything else was wonderful and delicious!!!

All the food was beautiful and reasonably priced. The workers were friendly and we got our food quick even though it was busy. The turkey sausage was seasoned and tasty which is hard to find.

Best breakfast in the triangle, hands down! Today I had the breakfast basket special - 2 eggs, bacon, grits and English muffin. Nothing fancy, but delicious, and they do grits right, the way my mom did. If you're feeling more hungry or adventurous try one of the scrambles or a skillet. And you can never go wrong with a Benedict. They make the Hollandaise fresh, from scratch, never from a package. Honestly, I've never had anything at Brig's that I didn't enjoy.

Best omelette in the Triangle. Not even a contest. I came here for breakfast the first day they opened in 1991 and I’ve been coming for thirty one years. My go to breakfast is a broccoli omelette with seasoned fries and an English muffin. Delicious. Consistently good. I can’t say this about any other breakfast spot in the Triangle.

My daughter ordered the Gingerbread pancakes and I the smoked salmon avocado toast. Both meals were very tasty. No complaints with service, spacing, or ambience either. But, the person that stood out the most was the greeter. She was very friendly and engaging even with my 8yo. I will definitely visit again.

First timer, from NYC, wanted good old southern food. The food was great! I had the Turkey Links cooked to perfection, and english muffin was great. Waiter was great, kept checking on everyone. Only reason for 4 🌟 is, I wanted to pay it took a lot longer than expected. And it was super COLD.I had eat with coat on.

For brunch on the day of my civil marriage, we gathered at Brigs. Everything tasted fine, according to my group of 7 friends. However, I found nothing was of distinct flavor. I was actually a bit disappointed the white of my eggs, the albumen, wasn’t thoroughly cooked. Had I known “sunny side up” signified both yolk and white would be runny, I’d of opted for scrambled eggs. Anyway, in addition to eggs, I selected avocado toast with bacon and cheese as toppings. I was pleased with the amount of avocado spread I received. Upon removing approximately half of the mozzarella cheese topping (a bit too much), I took delight in every bite. 😊 The dinning room was entirely occupied, and several figures of all shapes and sizes decorated the sidewalk leading to the restaurant’s front doors. Prices here are unbeatable- great quantity and good quality meals in addition to a humble environment and friendly service, although service was quite slow.

First time eating here. Our waiter Arturo was amazing very friendly & attentive. The food was excellent they give you a lot for the prices & the prices are very decent. Next time I am in Durham or passing through Durham I got to stop here again.

Great food, great environment, and friendly staff. The best breakfast/brunch place in town. Everyone makes you feel like family there and the food was amazing. Quick service as well on a day they were packed.

Appreciate the COVID-19 procedure in place. Order taken in courteous and prompt manner. Wait time was less than 15-minutes. Food was plentiful, fresh and delicious! The Host (Mr. Michael) displayed outstanding customer service; he was very professional in appearance, personable and prompt. Will visit again.

Pretty good food. I ordered the skillet, it was a little heavy for me. I was only able to eat 1/4 of it. I’m not the biggest breakfast fan but I love pancakes. I was not expecting eggs on top of the skillet. The ham and meat inside was good however the eggs had no seasoning. Overall good experience , next time I will just order less food and not the skillet.

It was packed when we got lunch on 8/28/21. However, our food came out at a reasonable time. Food was hot. I got the pimento cheeseburger. I loved that the pimento was a bit spicy. The fruit was good. The waitress was okay. I vaguely emember her personality or if she even checked on us. She was an older lady maybe in her late 30s? The experience would've been better if we a more upbeat waitress.

Fantastic food. The service is friendly and nice but the time to deliver to the table is extremely slow, we have come here several times in the past few months as we truly enjoy the food, but the average time to get someone to your table to take your order is 10 minutes as they are understaffed, and the average time to receive your order after ordering is over 30 minutes. At this moment we’ve been sitting at our table at 10:51 am, we walked in here and we were seated at 10:05. We still don’t have food. It’s like this here regardless of whether it’s a weekend, weekday, or holiday. Owners, if you don’t correct this it will only take away from you having happy customers, and eventually affect your business.

This establishment chosen by the review reports. Easily accessible from the Durham freeway. A Mom and Pop mainly breakfast and lunch variety.Our party of seven - after a brief wait was seated and our orders taken in a timely fashion. The hostess was great. The server seemed confused at times -she kept forgetting our requests. The food was excellent!! I had the corn beef hash option and a pancake. The waffle and pancake selection unique. This is a family establishment suitable for babies youngsters tweens teens young adults adults and seniors

If you love southern cooking where you can taste the butter in your food then this place is just for you. Everything thing on the menu is mouthwatering just by reading it. As the waitress brought out other people’s food you could smell it and just wanted your food to arrive. However, the reason I gave this place a four star is because this place gets so busy that you hardly see your waitress. You would be lucky if you saw your waitress before your meal arrives. When ordering your drink, just order a water on the side in case you’re someone who runs out their drink quick.

So, went to Brigs as it shows up on many top list of places to eat in RTP. This had a classic Mom and Pops feeling to it even down to our waitress who didn't need to write our order down. I like that. The menu had a good amount on it (scan QR code menu). We stuck to the unusual classic eggs and toast for me and french toast for my wife. The food looks delicious upon arrival, and rather quickly prepared, no complaints there. The waitress gave us plenty of space but still took good care of us if that makes sense. No awkward interruptions while eating. Nothing that stood out about the food taste, but nevertheless it was still good, the loaded home fries were delightful as I have never had that before in that form. Due to the strawberries the french toast did get a little soggy quick but she still enjoyed them. The check out process however . . . We had to wait in line as the sitting process is connected to the check out line. The wait set us back about 10 minutes when we were ready to depart. Overall not a bad experience love the mom and pop feel with good food, just need a little work on the payment part.

The food was good and came out fresh. They did over butter some of the items but overall the food was delicious. And the table next to us paid it forward made it all worth it as we did the same once we left. Since we are new here that definitely made us love it here that much more.

Had to visit the area to take care of some business. Drove an hour out and wanted some good breakfast. I visited two places and didn’t like the menu so I came here... great decision... customer service was great! Food is great! Only thing I had to do was have the cook make my Turkey sausage well done! Will come back ! Oh and the juice is awesome! Taste homemade... I ordered cran apple

The food here was great. The waffle was phenomenal. The only qualm was the disrespect to the waffle by pairing it with frozen tenders and calling it chicken and waffles. The omelettes were a hit too

I don’t really get the hype. It was fine. It wasn’t anything better than what I could have made at home. The OJ tasted like it was from a frozen can and the eggs weren’t seasoned at all. 🤷🏻‍♀️

One of the best places to eat breakfast. My family and I eat here almost every weekend and get something different everytime. The food is comforting and the omelets are the best ones I have ever tasted.

We went for brunch, as a group, they were very accommodating. Very busy, we did not have long to wait to be seated but we ended up needing to take our food to go because of a prior appointment. The waitress was lovely, the atmosphere was clean and casual. The food was great, I would definitely go again if I'm in the area.

We looked through the menu while we waited. I ordered the shrimp and grits.. these blew me away! I loved them. They were (kinda) Cajun style, I would say. It was a little spicy for those with tender mouths but so so good. The grits were cooked really well & the bacon on top added a great texture.

Stopped here for breakfast yesterday and I am SO glad that we did! Service was fantastic and even though the place was busy, there was barely a wait. They have a very extensive breakfast menu with lots of different things to choose from! The portions are huge and they are very reasonably priced. They have a great kids menu as well as a senior menu with smaller portion sizes. The best part for me was that they also have a LOT of vegetarian options which is hard to find. They have scrabbles, skillets and plates without meat which is almost Impossible to find elsewhere. Strongly recommend!

The Belgium waffle with the works is still a crowd pleaser and my favorite. It arrives amidst the oohs and ash's of customers sitting nearby and they always ask the obvious question..."Is it really as good as it looks"? My answer unequivocally is "No, it's better."

We were in town for the Duke/ND game and needed a hearty breakfast. This place was recommended a couple of times and we were very glad. We actually ate there 2 days. ( When you find something that works....don’t mess with it). Everything the four of us had was amazing!

Once we were seated, we received quick service. I got the combo, stuffed French Toast with scrambled eggs and crispy bacon. I received a perfect amount of everything. I don't have any complaints. The food is vey affordable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good breakfast/brunch in Durham without going downtown Durham.

Diner-esque menu, full of pancakes, omelets, sandwiches, and a lot of speciality items. I'd always heard about the lemon ricotta pancakes - they were delicious. The lemon in them really left you not feeling like you'd just eaten massive pancakes. Haha. I will definitely get those again someday. The broccoli salad was great. Church picnic good.

The food was fantastic. The service was superb. The restaurant was very clean, and all the employees were kind and outgoing. Considering the ongoing pandemic the service was above par. We never say close to anyone, and all employees were wearing surgical approved masks. Most definitely will eat here again. Thanks for the wonderful time!

When I read the menu of this unassuming eatery, I honestly thought I might be disappointed since it's quite reaching and ambitious. Dishes like a dozen different styles of Eggs Benedict and a Pina Colada Avocado Toast are easy to try, but hard to execute well. Nevertheless, they were jam packed so I gave it a try. Despite the long line, I was seated in minutes. Everything was clean. Coffee was hot and quick. The food was fresh, hot, perfectly cooked (including eggs over easy with perfect yolks). It was served shockingly quickly. There was fresh dill sprinkled on my crisp cucumber and avocado dish. Even the garnish lettuce was bright and crisp. The potatoes I require were wells done with carmelized onions that were just right. Blown away by this gem of a restaurant. Will make it a regular stop from now on. Servers were all courteous, knowledgeable and didn't stand around or socialize, but got straight to the hard work of providing great service. I am very impressed.

Early morning brkfast. Prices were over rated for the quality of food. I ordered the pancake plate with sausage patties. Pancakes were undercooked. Sausage had no flavor, it taste like it had been sitting in water. Will not attend this one again. Other Briggs place have given better food

It's been a while since I ate at Brigs. Won't let that much time go by again. Brigs has the best vibe of any of the places I dine in the area. The atmosphere is cozy, welcoming, very comfortable...like eating at home with family almost. The wait staff were so kind, attentive, friendly, thoughtful. It felt like family and that your food would be handled caringly and respectfully. A great place for friends and families to gather and enjoy good food choices and warm conversations.

Food at Brigs is ALWAYS great,whether its breakfast(bacon and eggs)or lunch foods(hamburger and fries).The waitresses/waiters are always friendly and willing to assist when I am all over the place trying to order multiple items.they suggest certain combos which makes it less costly.the only small issues are the fact they charge 1.00 for whip cream..I would think whip cream would be a given as long as not used excessively.I feel that the customer should be made aware as well as charging for additional condiments.this stuff comes as a surprise when we get the check and seems a little unfair when not disclosed at the time the customer as..other than these minor issues..I will definitely be back

Brunch today was great! I had the crab cakes Benedict with fruit and hash browns, and everything was exceptionally prepared. My sister had the iceberg wedge salad, with which she was pleased, and my dad chose the egg-white omelet and said it was great! We hoped for a sweet muffin basket, but the daily choice was cheese and chives... maybe next time!

Good breakfast this morning from a friendly waitress who kept the coffee coming while I made plans and sent emails on my laptop.I chose a meat-lovers omelet and subbed out the potatoes and toast for sliced tomatoes. Hooray for the keto diet where it's all eggs and cheese. This was delicious and filling and not very expensive at all.

The food was awesome. I got the seasonal pancakes can’t remember exactly what they were but they had this apple cider syrup and it was sooo good! Portions were decent. I was not happy that they had us put our four year old in a high chair at a two person table. We had no room and had to put stuff up on the wall divider which kind of killed the experience especially since we had been there for my daughters birthday.

Portions gigantic and for a diner pretty tastee. Had the garden omelette, the potatoes were spiced just right not the normal bland potatoes. The English muffin was slightly over toasted but they had a good variety of jellies it helped. The French toast was light and fluffy. The eggs Benedict was okay, eggs were slightly watery and hollandaise sauce average. Overall, good eats at a reasonable price with great portions.

Brigs is the best place for breakfast, lunch or brunch. The shrimp and grits are wonderful - true grits, not a grit cake or something like that. The broccoli salad is my favorite. I always fight with myself on whether to get breakfast (shrimp and grits or pancakes) or lunch (club sandwich on a croissant with broccoli salad and sweet potato fries)!

Briggs is the closest thing to a New York diner down here. The place is packed on the weekends and for good reason. The prices are more than fair, the breakfasts (basic eggs, pancakes, waffles cooked to order) a pitcher of (good) coffee , sides and service are great. That being said, please don't go there. The lines are long enough now and I'm hungry.

Definitely one of the best dining experiences I've had in NC since moving here a few months ago. The pancakes were top notch and their breakfast bowls are great. You wouldn't think this is a chain!
