What to Order: Sticky Biscuits – country ham and goat cheese icing.
Why You Need It: Three words: Goat Cheese Icing. These mini delights are a great starter and will disappear from your table in seconds. Seriously, go ahead and get more than one order for your party (or one basket for each person … you know … for good measure).

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar
8625 Lindholm Dr. Huntersville (This location serves breakfast on weekends)
What to Order: Anything on the breakfast menu, just make sure to ask for biscuits when you get the choice of them or toast.
Why You Need It: These biscuits are a little different – crunchy on the outside and moist in the middle. I make my own breakfast sandwich with my plate and it’s pretty darn flavorful.
What It Will Set You Back: Call to inquire about the menu, (704) 237 – 4055. The Bad Daddy’s in Birkdale Village in Huntersville is the only location that serves breakfast on the weekends.
1220 Thomas Ave.
What to Order: Biscuits & Gravy – two fresh baked biscuits smothered in white pepper gravy.

Dogwood Southern Table
4905 Ashley Park Ln.
What to Order: Chicken & Biscuit – scratch biscuit, fried chicken breast, scrambled egg and chorizo gravy.
Why You Need It: The chorizo gravy is straight-up decadent and delicious. Can I order a side dish of the chorizo gravy to dip my sandwiches in it from now on? That would be grrrrreat (Office Space voice, haha).
What It Will Set You Back: $16
1609 Elizabeth Ave.
What to Order: The White Lily Biscuits – Ham, Jam and Brie or NC Cheddar, Bacon and Egg.
Why You Need It: I normally pick the Ham, Jam and Brie because I absolutely love the contrast of this creamy cheese with the flaky biscuit. This item is offered during weekend brunch.
What It Will Set You Back: $5.99
What to Order: Southern Style Biscuit Benedict – a fluffy flying biscuit served open-faced, topped with pimento cheese, two poached eggs, crisp turkey bacon, hollandaise sauce and garnished with fresh basil. Served with a side of creamy dreamy grits.
Why You Need It: I’ve been known to order a dozen of their biscuits to-go so I can have my own personal stash at home in my freezer. I warm them back up in my toaster oven and they taste phenomenal. When dining-in, this benedict is my go-to order. Oh, and I need to give a special shout out to their grits, which deserve their own spotlight.
What It Will Set You Back: $9.49
3106 N. Davidson St.
What to Order: Chicken Biscuit Sandwich – de-boned fried chicken thigh, slaw, and honey mustard with bread & butter pickles.

Holler and Dash
2725 South Blvd., Suite A
What to Order: Chicken. Set. Go. – fried chicken, pimento cheese, jalapeno and sorghum.

What It Will Set You Back: $9
What to Order: Cheddar Biscuit – traditional southern biscuit with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

120 Langtree Rd., #107, Mooresville
What to Order: Southern Benedict – two poached eggs, buttermilk biscuit and fried green tomatoes topped with sausage gravy.
Why You Need It: I’m working my way through their menu and have found you really can’t go wrong with any of their breakfast items. This benedict has a nice twist with the fried green tomatoes, it’s tasty!
What It Will Set You Back: $9.99
1601 Central Ave.
What to Order: Booker T’s East Side Hasher – a bed of sweet potato hash browns topped with two ‘happy eggs’ frittata style with your choice of local Grateful Growers pork sausage, turkey sausage or soysage. It’s then covered with melted cheddar cheese and green onions. You get your choice of toast or TLC biscuit (hint: get the biscuit).
Why You Need It: Did you see that description above? I think it’s self explanatory.
What It Will Set You Back: $8.95
- I’ve heard from some sources that Stacks Kitchenin Matthews is worth the drive. I say “the drive” because I live up in Lake Norman, but work in Uptown. So tell me, should I add them to my weekend rendezvous? What is your favorite menu item there?
- Has anyone here had the Spicy Honey Chicken Biscuit from Metro Diner? I’ve been told that portions are massive and pretty scrumptious. Thoughts?
- If you find yourself in Hendersonville, I highly recommend visiting HenDough Chicken and Donuts. Even if you’re not planning a trip to Hendersonville, fuel up your car because it’s worth the drive. You can check out more information about Hendersonville’s various restaurants on my blog.
