Very quick service and I didn't have to eat until dinner. Enjoyed every mouthful and everyone ordered their biscuit sandwich differently and it came exactly as ordered.

We have Sunrise Biscuits as often as possible since 1997, a minimum of 4 times a month. I treat, literally, my crews to Sunrise biscuits at least once a month. The biscuits are made fresh continuously throughout the day as are the accompanying ingredients. In my opinion, best in the morning.

A Chapel Hill staple, Sunrise Biscuits has traffic backed up on weekend mornings. Well worth the wait for an iconic chicken biscuit after a late night of fun!

Nice big biscuits , fast service and great employees . The chicken biscuit with egg is still a favorite , crispy exterior with just the right amount on seasoning and the egg pulls it all together . If you go into the kitchen , you will find 6-7 people working together like a well coached team . One of these... More

This is a long-standing drive-through biscuit kitchen. My personal favorites are steak (chicken-fried) & chicken & best-of-all, if not the best-for-me, country ham. When I was younger, the size, ~4-5 inches across, was perfect. With age, my appetite has decreased but I find if I eat half on my way to wherever the remainder reheats quite well later. On weekends,... More

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.

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!

This is a very small drive in biscuit place. They have all types of biscuits. I tried the BLT biscuit combo that came with a hash brown and drink. It was very, very good. There is not a place to sit and eat so keep that in mind. The line was long but the staff moved very quickly. All of... More

Description
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
