The food was good but nothing great. The biscuits were fresh but nothing too special. Be aware there are typically long lines so be prepared to wait as it is a to go only spot.

Oh My, the Biscuits are amazing. If you are looking for fast breakfast and homemade, eat here. I was in and out under four minutes.

If you come to Chapel Hill, and do not get a chicken and biscuit from Sunrise (closes at 3 pm), you have wasted your visit. It should be against the law to make fried chicken so flavorful and biscuits so fluffy.

Lines form on Franklin street for this drive through place. If you are here for the game, it is easy to pass by and still get to the bus parking at University Mall. It is the biggest and best breakfast sandwich ever!

I enjoyed my chicken and cheese biscuit but it wasn't all that it was hyped up to be. The biscuit itself was crumby and not as moist as I would have liked for it to be. Overall pretty good though.

Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is a down-to-earth and family friendly local treasure. It is a small building that has both drive-thru and walk-in options for customers to choose between. The drive-thru typically goes faster than the walk-in options, except on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The line of cars will stretch far back onto East Franklin Street as locals wait to purchase...

Great biscuits for breakfast. Drive thru with great service. Daughter got fries and bacon/egg biscuit. She loved it. Hubby had biscuit and sweet tea with his favorite type of ice.

I searched restaurants close to my hotel and found this place. I saw that it was on the travel channel and had to visit!! There was a line around the building and out in the street. It didn't take anytime and it was AWESOME!! The BEST biscuit I've ever had! It makes me want to go back to Chapel Hill!!!
