I was in town visiting old friends and relatives and had to make a traditional stop at Sunrise. It was a Sunday morning and the line was about 10 deep around the building and spilling into the road. However, the staff were on their game and moved the line quickly and with southern hospitality. I got the cheddar cheese biscuit... More

I do like Sunrise, and I appreciate what a good deal it is, but be prepared to feel guilty after scarfing down some greasy chicken, slices of cheese and hash browns. So while their biscuits may be slightly larger and definitely fluffier than similar, nearby restaurants, (Flying Biscuit, Big Ed's City Market, Elmo's, Cracker Barrel), I think I'd prefer smaller...

If you want a marvelously wonderful chicken or sausage biscuit Sunrise is your stop. Yes, this is a drive through kitchen that offers yummy selections on an old fashion board. The lines are frequently down the street but there is a reason for such. DELICIOUS!!!!

This is the second of a two restaurant mini-chain that began in Louisburg, NC in 1978 -there are some other biscuit restaurants with Sunrise in their name, but the one here is only associated with the one in Louisburg (website - sunrisebiscuits.com) The menus are, of course, very similar, as is the operation in general - the one in Louisburg...

Great biscuits, with egg, sausage, bacon. Not for calorie conscious. Coffee could use a step up in quality. Drive thru only.

Got two chicken biscuits, which are bigger than average, and 2 cups of coffee for $12. And they were delicious!

The cinnamon rolls are the best anywhere. Thick, heavy, buttery, sugary and delicious . Get 2 and extend the treat. The cost is appropriate. I have been eating them for 30 years. Same location same great taste, get there early, they do tend to run out of these little pieces of the "Southern side of Heaven"
