If you are ever in Chapel Hill North Carolina, make sure you go through the drive thru at Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen and get a Pork Tenderloin Biscuit or a Smithfield Ham Biscuit and you will understand what Biscuits are all about. In the South you can even get a good Biscuit at Hardee's or Chick-Fil-A, but for some reason in the Northwest very few know how to make a decent biscuit. With that said, I was really happy to find some guys from North Carolina making biscuits and frying up Chicken at the Farmers Market.
Pine State Biscuits took down the tent at the farmers market and traded it for a real kitchen next to the Triple Nickel on Belmont. I have tried the Fried Chicken, Bacon Egg and Cheese and the Sausage Biscuits and they all kick ass, you can even get the Chicken biscuit with Pickles and Mustard, I can't wait to try the Biscuits and Gravy, I hear they are quite tasty. For those of you from the South, it's the closest thing to your Granny's Biscuits around here, and for those of you who think Biscuit + Chicken + Pickles + Mustard is not delicious, well, go give it a try and see what you have been missing out on all of these years.
