Part of the Chapel Hill Tradition.

There is a reason for the long line of cars waiting to get in... it's the people who *always* go to Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen when they are in Chapel Hill, for whatever reason (yes, graduation is one of the better reasons). They are good biscuits, down-home cooking, and why would you want more... read more

With the large line of cars waiting on the road to turn into this Chapel Hill institution, I was excited to take my first bite of chicken biscuit. Sadly, the chicken was just not right....the coating was soggy and the chicken just smelled funny.

There seems to be a long car line at this place (it is only takeout) on weekend mornings, so I dropped by one day when the line was shorter. I LOVE biscuits (grew up as a southerner) and was dying to see how this stacked up. I got a sausage egg and cheese biscuit and hashbrowns. The hashbrowns were the... More

My daughter is a student at UNC and eating at Sunrise was on her UNC bucket list. We both ordered the chicken biscuit on the recommendation of the worker. The chicken was huge, as was the biscuit - we should have just split one. Biscuit was dense and flaky and the chicken was yummy!

This is a small eatery that is strictly a drive thru and well worth the visit. The large biscuits are the best I have eaten and believe me I have eaten a lot of biscuits. The offerings of eggs bacon chicken and many more are of top quality and the taste is really worth the price. Do yourself a favor... More

I grew up here in town and I still love that that haven't changed a thing here besides the Bad Grandpa, which is awesome! Best biscuits and hash browns around.

Biscuit very tasty. Light and flakey. I had the chicken and cheddar. It was our first trip sowe really didn't know what to order. The employee was very nice and told us to take our time even though there was a line behind us

After having seen lines out the door, down the street, and stopping traffic, my expectations were very high. The biscuit was good, but don't bother with any of the sandwiches; they're nothing more than fast food.

drive thru on a busy Chapel Hill street, but so worth it! The large biscuit is not something you would want to eat everyday, but it is sooo good.

The biscuits are homemade and you are given a large chicken breast as well. The cinnamon rolls are also fantastic.
