This is a small drive through place and there is always a line. A bag of these steaming hot biscuits is something to dream about. Choose ham, bacon, sausage or cheese. There is something for everyone here. I think "fluffy" is the word I am looking for. I make biscuit sandwiches out of a Pillsbury can when I am not... More

I had the country ham biscuit and it was enjoyable. Yes, of course it is a biscuit so it was a treat for Sunday morning, but not like that kind where it sits like a pit in your tummy all day. the ham was a bit salty but mmmmm, the hash brown and the biscuit made for a lovely Sunday.

These are some of the best biscuits one could ever eat. This is the original and best biscuit kitchen of the carolinas. The hours can be inconvenient if you want a biscuit for dinner, but it makes it all the more worth it to make it there while they're still open.

Stopped there this morning & had a sausage, egg & cheese biscuit. The sausage was very good. The biscuit was just OK & the cheese was not melted. I will not be going back & feel this place is overrated.

Don't miss a stop at Sunrise....it actually snowed the morning I popped by just before I headed out for last minute Christmas shopping...and that big ol' biscuit kept my hands warm... until I ate it all up.

You gotta try this place. Most likely a line when you get there but it moves amazingly fast. Fried chicken biscuit is my favorite. They are also BIG biscuits so be aware when ordering because everything looks good. You can even see the smiling faces of the ladies making the biscuits as you go by the windows.

Sunrise's chicken biscuits should be a treat for anyone, any day -- even for guests visiting for the first time (they will want to return!) Always fresh.

Sunrise biscuits is a popular drive through biscuit house on Franklin Street. Often the line of cars extends out into the street (so it may be best to approach from the East. In addition to Bacon, egg, and sausage biscuits, they have pork chop, steak, and fried chicken. mmmmmm
