Light as clouds biscuits

After living in NC for over 35 years I have had my share of biscuits. So this morning when we needed a breakfast in a hurry we went here and surprisingly found there was no one ahead of us, something that has dissuaded me in the past.

They need to have some traffic cones out in the street. We had some basic biscuits before going canoeing up in Durham. I would recommend ordering some "food lube" i.e.. tomato, mayo, or something to go on the sausage and egg biscuit. I'm not from the South, so I'm not totally clear on how to order a proper breakfast biscuit.... More

I was lucky enough to hit a slower time this morning, so the wait was very short. The chicken and cheddar biscuit was great and so was the sausage and cheddar biscuit. The breakfast platter was lackluster. Service was fast and courteous. My experience with highly rated restaurants and those that are featured on travels shows, has been hit or... More

Wonderful little gem to pick up good biscuits. Go early, line is long and it is just off highway and parking is a problem. No inside service just drive through.

Very rich, southern food! It was very busy and a bit disorganized, although summer and out of season -- (e.g., we didn't get implements, napkins or correct order), That said, I'd go again, I think just an off visit. Glad I don't live down here, I'd have to make point to stay away.

This small drive-through offers biscuits with a variety of fillings. Very southern - biscuits were light and fluffy; ham, bacon, eggs and cheese all satisfying.

Had seen review for this place and driven by the line several times. So the next trip I made to Chapel Hill I had to try it! The food was delish! The biscuits are phenomenal!! Don't let the tiny building fool you. Fast, delicious breakfast!

Eat here to cure whatever ails ya. These biscuits will trump anything grandma ever made. You'll never want a bojangl ra biscuit again after this place.

Not fancy, no place to sit, just a drive through, but some of the best fresh biscuits you can buy. Huge fluffy biscuits are baked fresh and you can get an assortment of biscuit sandwiches. The chicken biscuit is one of the most popular.

I LOVE Sunrise! Be prepared for a bit of a wait but it's worth it! My favorite is the Country Ham and Egg Biscuit. Their tea is great too! You do have the option of parking and going inside to order. They only allow three customers inside at a time so if there are already three in there you wait... More
