Blue Ridge Biscuit Company

Black Mountain, NC – A long-time favorite of our since they opened a few years ago is the Blue Ridge Biscuit company.  Some of the largest biscuits around, and they even have gluten-free ones!  They are known for their Twisted Biscuits – which are loaded!  I traditionally will get the Lookout.  It is a fried chicken cutlet, sitting on half a biscuit, then covered with cheese, bacon and sausage gravy.  It’s a heart attack on a plate, but oh so good.

I reserve the extra half of my biscuit for some of the jams and jellies they have at their counter.  They also have wonderful baked goods, and non-biscuit breakfast as well.  My wife is super thrilled with he Gluten-Free biscuit.  Give them a try… but be forewarned, there usually is a line out the door, but it moves pretty quick!
