Split open a light and fluffy biscuit, and you can fill it with nearly anything — meat, poultry, jam, honey or just butter — and serve it at any meal. You can even make a meal out of it — did someone say bacon, egg and cheese biscuit for breakfast?
Biscuits are a comfort food we all enjoy. If you’re not one to make them yourself, we asked, where do you go? The winner was an overwhelming choice, but we’ll start with No. 5 and work our way to the top.
In fifth place was Home Grown. This restaurant’s Comfy Chicken Biscuit is often in the top two for best brunch dish.
In fourth place was Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits. Carrie Morey founded Callie’s in 2005, selling packaged frozen buttermilk biscuits made from the recipe passed down from her mother.
Third place went to last year’s winner, Biscuits and More. You can get your biscuit with everything from just butter to sausage links and eggs.
Second place went to Atlanta mainstay Flying Biscuit. The first cafe opened in 1993 in Candler Park. There are now 25 locations throughout Georgia, North Carolina, Florida and Texas.
The 2020 winner of best biscuit in metro Atlanta was Mamie’s Kitchen Biscuits. Mamie’s history dates back to 1966, when Jack Howard Sr. and his wife, Gloria, opened the doors to the first Mamie’s Kitchen Restaurant in Atlanta on Memorial Drive. Although it finished in third place last year, Mamie’s got half the votes this year to take the title.
