I certainly do not want to start another thread about fast food, BUT has anyone ever heard of this place? It certainly SEEMS appealing...

    I haven't, but it sounds good. Fresh, hot biscuits every 20 minutes!

      I have tried B'ville and always enjoyed it. Super breakfast biscuits and coffee - at least I think so.

            Alright......I'll deny it to chezkatie, wj, meowzart, the Sterns et al and claim that my doppelganger posted this....

            I love Biscuitville. My estimation is that they have stuck to their original concept and Mom and Pop beginnings and offer some darn authentic southern style goodies. I sure hope they can continue to offer the goodness and quality that they do. Also......even with the cookie cutter sameness of ambience.....I still don't get as much of a "chain" feel as with most places, similar to the uniqueness of Cracker Barrel when it FIRST....(again READ..FIRST) started out. It is a place that I would tell the most ardent of chain despisers, this ain't the same kind of animal at all.

            addendum: btw check their career corner link on their site. Some nice benefits, bonuses , salaries and educational emphasis there.

              When I lived in North Carolina I ate at Biscuitville at least four times a week. Three Butter biscuit with jelly, and one steak, egg and chesse biscuit. they were all good. Fridays were a good day. Biscuitville for breakfast, lunch at K & W and dinner at Bell Brothers. thanks for reminding me how much I miss going to Biscuitville. also their tooth picks had the most mint flavor of any tooth pick i ever tried.

                From the looks of the place; I think I would partake of their offerings quite frequently. Alas, this is obviously a quite limited regional chain (hmm... regional chain... where did I hear that phrase before??? ). Anyways, appears I am again out 'o luck; living here in S. Southern Georgia...

                  My salivary glands are throbbing.

                  It sounds like a biscuit version of Krispy Kreme, only better.

                    At this time, there is not a B'ville in the city that I live in but when I'm out and about I always try to hit one in the morning. There is a Biscuit Co. that is similar - does any one know if these companies are 'related' in any way?

                      Okay...I have to go to Lynchburg on Wednesday. I'll have to pass up Sonic and try these folks.
                      Jeez, Lynchburg is restaurant poor. I asked someone where all the locals eat and was told Shakers. ???????? Sounds like the DT's to me.

                          The last time I visited my brother in Raleigh, I noticed there were three different restaurants that had Biscuits in their name within a couple of miles from his house. I figured it to be a southern thing since I've not seen that type of restaurant in any other part of the country. I should have stopped at one of them, fresh hot biscuits sound good this morning.

                            I recently discovered Biscuitville as part of my family moved to Raleigh. We all love biscuits and find those served there to be very fresh and tasty. Love the smoked sausage biscuits the best. Great sweet tea too. My only complaint is the"butter" they use. It's a nasty substitute used all too frequently in the restaurant biz these days. Called "Swirl" Yuk!

                              Ditto for me! And yet I am mere steps away from a Dunkin Donuts AND a McD's...sigh...

                                Yes, Biscuitville is good. In 2003 on a trip from Charlotte to Raleigh on Christmas Day, it was the only place we found open to get breakfast. Talk about a long line!!

                                  The Biscuitville in Raleigh, NC is now "experimenting" with corned beef hash. They've just added a corned beef hash breakfast bowl which has grits, scrambled egg, and corned beef hash with a buttered biscuit and jelly for $2.99.

                                    Route 11,

                                    There's a pretty good roadfood type place in Lynchburg out on Timberlake Rd. just before you get to the Rt 460 bypass called The Koffee Kup. We've had lunch there and it was crowded with locals. Daily blue plate specials, etc. We enjoyed it.
                                    (sorry this is off the topic of Biscuitville.)

                                    Frank
