I ate at the Biscuit King in Fairhope AL a few years ago and was underwhelmed by them. Pasty gravy did not cut it. Plenty os sausage was good, but the biscuits were small and on the hard side. Not anywhere near the top of my list.

Pine State Biscuits here in Portland makes an excellent biscuit sandwich. it is even reviewed favorably in the Sterns' 500 Things Book and it is well worth a stop at either location when in Portland.

Totally agree, and I posted a "Reggie" earlier in this thread and have visited all 50 states...THIS is the BEST!

I just realized we have a Bojangles!

So I guess we here in NYC are not terribly lacking in the biscuit dept. if Bojangles is mentioned so often!

Hey, Ann...do it yourself and order some center cut country ham slices from Phillips Brothers in Asheboro, NC....336-625-4321 Their website is down, but here's a link. You can order by phone...the lady is really nice.

It's not super salty like some and very tender. Pick up some Pillsbury Grands FROZEN buttermilk biscuits and some jalapeno jelly and you have yourself a great Southern treat! (I used to live in western NC)

Tell you what....those little biscuits are great. I'm not talking about the dairy case ones. They come a dozen to a bag and are frozen. ALMOST as good as my homemade baking powders. Have you actually tried them? Here's some good "feedback" from others here who have tried them.

I much prefer the frozen biscuits over the canned ones. Cant explain it, but they are so much better.

There is a place (don't imagine it's still there) on Military Highway in Norfolk called the "House of Eggs" and they had this glorious country ham biscuit and this equally glorious sausage biscuit.

I wish you could get frozen Mary B's around here....they are a little better than the Pillsbury. I know scratch ones are better, but these will do. My neighbor is an excellent cook from Alabama and she sampled one of my country ham biscuits last week and thought they were scratch. She was sober as well.

I think those frozen Pillsbury biscuits are terrific. And the cleanup is nonexistent.

When my cousins came to visit from N.C. last year, I challenged them to enjoy my biscuits and gravy. While i made my own sausage gravy from scratch, I used the frozen biscuits.They loved them!Called me a true southerner.Now-you have to taste my pimento cheese!

OxDawg I agree with you about Mamies Kitchen, I love their biscuits. DJ's Cafe on Brown Bridge isn't bad either.

Mamie's Kitchen in Covington Ga. the Chicken and the Steak and Gravy are both very good. Also for chains Hardee's followed closely by Bojangles.

Hey Ann...we LOVE pimento cheese. Our first stop before we go to the condo in Myrtle Beach is the local Bi-Lo grocery store for this stuff! Made locally and it's fantastic.

Pancho-had  awesome, homemade pimento cheese in the Carolinas-learned to make my own based on the taste...even brought back hoop cheese to make it with-however, here in Wisconsin it seems to be a good mild cheddar....

I admit that the frozen Pillsbury biscuits are totally better than the ones I can make myself. And as others mentioned, no clean up! If you're in the South (and possibly anywhere else) Palmetto Cheese brand pimento cheese is to die for.

DUCK FAT RULES!!!
Duck Fat Biscuits
By Diana Rattray, About.com Guide
 The duck fat makes these biscuits especially tender and delicious. If you don't render your own duck fat, you can find it in some grocery stores and specialty markets. It's also available through Amazon.com and other online stores.
For light, flaky biscuits, mix and work the dough as little as possible, just until the dough is moist and holds together. Also, when you cut the dough with the biscuit cutter, don't twist. Try to remember to cut up and down. Twisting can cause them to rise lop-sided as they bake.
Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, about 10 ounces
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder, preferably aluminum free
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) duck fat, chilled for about 20 minutes in the freezer, until solid
1 cup buttermilk
Preparation:
Heat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Whisk to blend thoroughly.
Work the chilled/frozen duck fat in with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles meal. Add the buttermilk and stir until just moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead just 2 to 4 times. The dough will be soft. Pat gently into a circle about 3/4 inches thick. Cut out with biscuit cutters and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Gather up the scraps of dough and pat again into a small circle. Work the dough as little as possible.
Bake the biscuits for about 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.

Yes, Foodbme, the first time making pimento cheese i wanted it to be as authentic as possible, thus the hoop cheese from N.C, which is how the recipe was explained to me. After making it for the first time, I realized the cheese was good old mild cheddar. Its called hoop cheese because it is made and fermented in a wooden hoop...

 Hardee's Chicken homemade biscuit with gravy added has to be the best breakfast biscuit as far as for a FF joint. I used to work there and they grade you on your biscuits. Mine were always A's !!

DUCK FAT RULES!!!
Duck Fat Biscuits
By Diana Rattray, About.com Guide

Those sound fantastic....however, I consider the biscuit a "country ham holder" and find that the little Grands or Mary B's serve the purpose. Next time I make some scratch shrimp and grits I will score me some duck fat. Already know where I can find some. Thanks for the recipe.

I overdid it this morning. Martins in Douglasville,GA. The smoked link biscuit is the size of a Hardee's biscuit and the chicken version is the size of a hamburger bun. Those are real scrambled eggs also. Killer biscuits.

I've not tried Pillsbury's frozen biscuits, but it makes sense that they'd be good:  When I make biscuits I freeze all the extras, and they're fantastic re-heated in a regular (not microwave) oven.
 
Please keep the photos of biscuits coming.  They're all drool-worthy!
