Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen

Bakery | Drive-In
One of the best

Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is a kitchen and little more. There are no dining accommodations whatever. Service is drive-through, and parking around the place is minimal. All that is OK with me, because the biscuits are superb. They are extra large with fluffy insides that radiate a rich buttermilk character. The kitchen splits them into halves and loads in such items as bacon and eggs, sausage, and country ham. That ham – rank and salty with plenty of chew – is a well-nigh perfect match for the creamy biscuit, especially when sided with a tall, icy cup of sweet tea.

We also loved the pork tenderloin biscuit and the chicken biscuit, the latter a luxurious pillow of expertly fried white-meat chicken with a golden crust and insides moist enough to flavor the biscuit once that crust is severed.

For an on-the-go breakfast, this humble little shop cannot be beat. The menu also lists sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs. I can’t imagine coming here and not wanting a biscuit.

What to Eat
Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen, Ham Biscuit
Ham Biscuit
The country ham is luscious enough that its juices add extra succulence to the soft biscuit that surrounds it.
Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen, Chicken Biscuit
Chicken Biscuit
North Carolinians know how to fry chicken and how to make biscuits. Those talents add up to a breakfast sandwich that is a harmony of crunch and cream.
Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen, Pork Tenderloin Biscuit
Pork Tenderloin Biscuit
The pork tenderloin biscuit is even richer than the fried chicken biscuit. When you crunch through the crust of the fried pork, its juices virtually spurt.
Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen, Bacon Biscuit
Bacon Biscuit
Although there are four delicious strips of bacon on this biscuit, the meat to bread ratio leans too heavily towards the biscuit for us. We recommend adding an egg for better balance.
Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen, Sausage Biscuit
Sausage Biscuit
For just .75 cents, creamy pimento cheese can be added to any biscuit.
