Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is a kitchen and little more. There are no dining accommodations whatsoever. Service is drive-through, and there's not much available parking nearby if you need a place to eat. 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.

Sunrise is very good. But you know what? Even better is the country ham or steak and egg biscuit just down the road, and scattered every few miles throughout North Carolina, at the Bojangles chain.
