If the wonderful sweet potato biscuit are not enough to bring you here consider the many yummy generous portions to go on top. The pork loin with sweet and spicy grainy mustard and homemade pickles is must. Also bring your appetite for the outstanding fried chicken which can seriously beat any competitors out there. Even the shorty with egg and cheese is a standout featuring a perfect crisp but not overdone fried egg with just the right amount of cheddar. The only drawback is the limited parking and seating.. Also they have limited hours so check out the info before you go.They have daily specials if the standard board does not entice you.

I heard about this place from a few friends and decided to try it. Handsome biscuit is amazing. To start with there is a line out the door so you know that's a good sign. My husband and I waited about 10 minutes to place out order and it was ready pretty quick. We were lucky and sniped a table inside which is a hard task considering there are only a few tables to sit at. We both ordered the hella Fitzgerald and it was so yummy! Chicken, cheese and gravy with a sweet potato biscuit. We also shared the hashbrowns which were equally as tasty. I would definitely recommend handsome biscuit to friends. The wait is worth it and if you can't find a table to sit at there are ledges outside where people stand and eat. I can't wait to go back!

While in town for a wedding, we stumbled upon the most unique chicken biscuit restaurant ever.
The portions were humongous! You cannot fit the sandwich in your mouth! Unbeliveably delicious--just go! We can't wait for our next trip from Florida.

I had the fried chicken sandwich. My husband had what's called the A.C. Slawter. His was a pulled pork sandwich with barbecue sauce and pickled red cabbage. All sandwiches were served on a sweet potatoe roll. Both sandwiches were very good. We also ordered the hashbrown and the house soda. YUMMY!

Stopped by to pick up some biscuits to go...good thing as there are only four tables. Very popular, place has a cool vibe and is probably quite a hit with the "morning after crowd". We got the Stevie, which is a fried chicken biscuit on a sweet potato roll. These things are huge, you only need one! Plenty of biscuit choices, even bigger...so bring your appetite. I tried the bread pudding for desert, not really good, would not try that again. The lemon bars seemed pretty popular.
