I love this restaurant for breakfast in Independence. It is always busy; a reflection that many others share my view. The biscuits and gravy are wonderful. I also love the pancakes and shredded hash browns . . . hard to decide sometimes just what to have. I have also eaten here once for lunch and the chicken fried steak was... More

While waiting for our table we had a view of the prep area at this restaurant. We watched as the girl prepping orders picked hashbrowns off a platter and eat them. After watching her do this several times we informed the hostess and she came back and said that order was not going out to the floor. This same girl... More

I've heard about this resturant from alot of the locals. (me being new to the area and all) I got the biscuits and gravy which I really enjoyed. They give you alot of food and it is decently priced. The servers are nice and helpful when asking for recommendations. Definately a place to visit.

While on our way to another un-named breakfast spot that we do frequent in other cities, we happened to drive by The Big Biscuit, quickly pulled it up on google, turned around and went back. We are glad we did and will go back this morning, again. The selections and service were both excellent as was the food. There wasn't... More

My husband and I where leaving out of KC on the train later that day and some relatives took us to breakfast. At first we walked up and it was so crowded. We decided it was well worth the wait once the food came. I ordered the Ultimate omelet and my husband ordered the big breakfast. WOW!! It was so... More

We have been going to this Big Biscuit since it opened and it has always been great in both food and service. Today my wife and I went for breakfast and we were treated like second class citizens. The food was great as usual but the service was lousy. We waited about 45 minutes after ordering to get our meal.Other... More
