The Best Biscuits Around the Triangle

(The Triangle Trend) — Biscuits. Known by southerners as a buttery piece of heaven on a plate. We’ve all sank our teeth into a fluffy yet perfectly crisp biscuit that made us rethink every other biscuit we’ve tasted up to that point. We rounded up local favorites that you’ll hopefully enjoy as much as we do!

Debbie Lou’s Biscuit Sandwich Shop

5410 Highway 55 Suite AK, Durham, NC 27713

Debbie Lou’s is currently offering carry-out only, but their biscuits are well worth taking a trip and eating in the car over. Debbie goes above your traditional buttery biscuit, and offers a range of unconventional dessert flavors as well; a jumbo cherry lime biscuit, a jumbo blueberry pineapple biscuit, and a jumbo peace biscuit. The biscuit sandwiches served are absolutely drool-worthy, including three vegetarian options served with cheese, and classic favorites. Chicken biscuits, sausage biscuits, gravy biscuits, gator biscuits, ham biscuits, and steak biscuits. Hungry yet?

State Farmers Market Restaurant

1240 Farmers Market Dr, Raleigh, NC 27603

Located in North Carolina State Farmers Public Market, State Farmers Market Restaurant is a gem for Raleigh—hundreds of local vendors offering fresh vegetables, plants, baked goods, and more. A local favorite is their biscuits with butter and blackstrap molasses. Biscuits are always hot and fresh. Service is prompt and courteous from a well-trained wait staff. You’ll likely spot friendly regulars offering dining advice and raving over the biscuits and molasses.

The Flying Biscuit

2016 Clark Ave, Raleigh, NC 27605

Famous for their all day breakfast, the Flying Biscuit is a staple of mid-town Raleigh. Opened 7-9 all day, guests can stop by for curb-side pick up or sit down to enjoy the view of the outdoor Village District mall and its iconic wall gardens. The Flying Biscuit menu offers hearty plates of breakfast staples including eggs cooked to order, buttermilk pancakes, french toast, and grilled flat iron steak. They also have burgers, wraps, and salads for lunch and dinner options. Best of all, though, their “Fluffy Flying Biscuits” paired with their apple butter spread are a must-try for any biscuit lover!

Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen

1305 E Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27514

The biscuits at Sunrise have been described as “bigger and fluffier than a cumulus cloud with all manner of breakfasty items in the middle.” There is a very good reason why this spot gets long lines. The biscuits are salty, buttery… and did we mention huge? The fried chicken is tender and delicious. The southern-style homemade biscuits are amazing with your choice of whatever you want on it or with it. Note they are drive-through only. This is honest comfort food. The price is very reasonable and the biscuits are memorable.


3928 Western Blvd, Raleigh, NC 27606

2820 NC-55, Cary, NC 27519

3201 Hillsborough Rd, Durham, NC 27705

For many locals, there’s no better biscuit in the Triangle than at Biscuitville. The biscuits are always fluffy and delicious. You just might get hooked on their ham egg and cheese biscuit. The spicy chicken honey biscuit and cheese grits have been said to give consumers life. The whole meal is hot and juicy, the biscuit is nice and soft and the honey isn’t too much. Lots of customers swear out that between all fast food restaurants that serve breakfast, Biscuitville hands down serves the best biscuits you’ll eat (although there are still plenty who’d argue Bojangles!) If you’re a coffee drinker, Biscuitville’s coffee is pretty good too.

True Flavors Diner

5410 Highway 55 Suite AJ AK, Durham, NC 27713

This is a hidden gem in a strip mall off Hwy 55! The food is fresh, flavorful, and creative! They are only open for breakfast and lunch and serve breakfast the whole time. The biscuits are a must try and the omelets filling but light and fluffy. Their super buttery fresh biscuits are always a treat—large and fluffy with the perfect hint of sweetness. Extremely friendly staff, very good coffee, and free biscuits! We can’t think of a better dining experience.
