My son and I were in Memphis for a fencing tournament and staying next to the convention center. Sunday was a free day, so were in search of place for brunch that was away from the Beale street area. The 10 minute uber ride to...More

As a drive through restaurant, Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is as good as it gets for great fast food. My husband LOVES their cinnamon buns. They are huge and warm and melt in his mouth. He rarely misses an opportunity to stop by for a sausage...More

We found this little biscuit place. It is quite delicious. It's a great place to grab a biscuit and go.

Great breakfast spot for classic biscuit options. Country Ham is my favorite. This restaurant is up only.

Pretty good but overrated in my opinion. Rather greasy! You’ll be waiting in the street as this is a drive through place and very popular with the locals.

This place is the best - worth coming to NC just for this. Biscuits melt in your mouth and it’s so fast and cheap that it should be illegal. We had a chicken biscuit (just buy it) and a BLT biscuit with an egg biscuit...More

This is a one of a kind find. I love this place for its big loaded biscuits. The chicken biscuit is my favorite. My son is a fan of the bacon n cheese. Drive thru and get some early morning goodness!

This joint killed it. Great, greasy, unhealthy biscuit which is what you go to a place like this for. Either way, the woman was not very nice at the window and they forgot one of our biscuits. No “you’re welcome” or any response. Still if...More

Carolina is biscuit country, and if you’re in Chapel Hill, you must put Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen on your list. Friendly waitstaff and tasty treats await. Try ‘em!

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
