This is a drive through establishment that specializes in fresh baked biscuits in many different varieties. They are the freshest, fluffiest and tastiest of any I have tried. My personal favorite is their plain chicken biscuit, but the menu is extensive. How good are they?...More

After an a overnight drive from NJ, Sunrise Biscuit opened at just the right time, 6 am. Their large biscuit with chicken and cheddar hit the spot. The biscuits here are the best in Chapel Hill. Sorry, no photo, I ate too quickly.

Friends told us this was the place for chicken biscuits with cheese and we weren’t disappointed. The cinnamon roll made out of biscuit was good for the kids!

I had never thought of a BLT biscuit until these good people put it on the menu. Waste no time -- go get a biscuit, and do it before 2 p.m.!

Stopped for some breakfast goodness. The chicken biscuit was delightful. The rest of our order was wrong but the biscuits were so good i am letting it slide. Worth a second chance.

It is less than 3 miles - left on MLK, left on North Estes and right on Franklin. Sunrise will be about 100 yds on the right

Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch! In brief, Sunrise was established in 1978 in Louisburg, NC (actually 1977 but that is a longer story) and has been responsible for providing Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch ever since. Our biscuit recipe is based on my Grandmother's recipe. Her biscuits helped give her the stamina to give birth to 17 children and live to almost 100. Our Award-Winning Chapel Hill location is a Drive-Thru Only Restaurant for your convenience. The Louisburg location features a Drive-Thru option as well as seating. Our regular customers particularly value our great food and fast, friendly service. In addition to biscuits, we also serve hamburgers and hot dogs. Our sandwiches include barbecue, chicken salad and tuna salad (chicken and tuna salad in Chapel Hill only and made on-site). A real southern treat is our sweet tea. Come by soon! Our Chapel Hill restaurant is located at: 1305 East Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27514 (919) 933-1324 Our Louisburg restaurant is located at: 208 S. Bickett Blvd. Louisburg, NC 27549 (919) 496-2609
