Best biscuits in town

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

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

I'm still a little confused about what all the hype around this place is about. The food was not bad at all. In fact, for the nominal prices they charge, the food is excellent; that just doesn't seem like a reason to have the drive-through line wrapped around the building and out into the street, in my opinion.

As I head up Franklin Street on a nice crisp Carolina morning I see the line of cars backed up on the road patiently waiting to get their day started with Chapel Hill's best biscuits. As I wait I can just imagine that first bite into my steaming hot Steak & Egg Biscuit. Can starting a day get any better?... More

Love this place. Great food...super quick service. Just be careful entering off Franklin Street...traffic gets backed up trying to get into this place.
