Biscuits aren't just for breakfast, as this buttered and pan-seared masterpiece, accompanying a plate of pork barbecue and sides at Swallow at the Hollow demonstrates. It's our pick for best biscuit in and around Atlanta. Photo: Phil Skinner, pskinner@ajc.com

OUR PICKS
1. Swallow at the Hollow
The AJC dining team’s specialist in Southern and Neighborhood Fare Jenny Turknett says, “The homemade buttermilk biscuits at Swallow at the Hollow epitomize the Southern biscuit: fluffy, tender and buttery. The biscuits are halved and pan-seared, resulting in a toasty crisp inner layer shining with butter. Swallow at the Hollow’s biscuits are eye-rolling good, particularly when smeared with the accompanying honey.”

Corey’s up in Calhoun are pretty good – they have a nice rise.

Also, Kelley’s in Chattanooga are pretty good if you’re looking at out of state options.

I think Corey’s was a spinoff from Kelley’s, so I’ll probably give the nod to the original ;)

I do not want to admit it but my grandmother made the best biscuits ever, but it was the way she made them that I do not want to admit. Two ingredients: whole buttermilk and lard. Need I say more? But I am quite sure they will be served at the Marriage Feast of the Lamb in heaven. But then it won’t matter what we eat.

Thumbs Up in Decatur (and possibly the other locations), too bad they don’t have sausage gravy which should be a mandatory side vote for this survey. The sausage gravy down the street a Decatur Diner is great; but, the biscuits, not so much. Get together on this guys. Fast food: Popeye’s.

Feel kinda sad for anybody that is voting for a fast food joint as the best biscuit in Metro Atlanta, pass the Bojangles and Popeye’s and head for Little Barn in Lawrenceville or Amy Lafay’s in Dacula or a dozen other places in the area that have better biscuits than a fast food joint. Oh, but Chick-fil-a chicken biscuits are pretty good in an emergency.

Ria’s Bluebird: It’s located on Memorial across the street from Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta. I’m always on a hunt for the best hand-crafted biscuit in Atlanta, and these folks appear to have it. I think she uses butter as the fat and there is certainly whole buttermilk in it. The leavening is baking powder/soda making it a true biscuit. Go try it!

It’s hard to believe that anyone would post anything other than Mamie’s biscuits as the best biscuits available for purchase. I can only assume that anyone who listed anything else has never had one. There are multiple locations on the east side of town. Covington, Conyers, Lithonia.

I see the Flying Biscuit is rallying their employees to vote for those overly sweet hockey pucks they serve. Meanwhile, I’ll take the Silver Skillet with red eye gravy (even though its 30 miles from me).

It depends...

November 1st, 2011
1:53 pm

Biscuits are NOT: Hockey pucks, “cat heads”, 3-inch tall mounds, chewy, and tough

Now, that has knocked out most things that people are calling “great”.

REAL biscuits are: buttery, flaky crust, pillow-like interior, just the right size with a height of no more than one-half inch.

Homemade is best, but if you can’t get a homemade one:

Chik-fil-a has some of the worst biscuits around. Thick, chalky, rubbery, chewy. Tasteless. Anyone that “enjoys” these things has NEVER had a real biscuit.

Hardee’s does a pretty darn good one. Buttery, flaky.

Red Lobster has great “dinner” biscuits.

My litmus test for biscuits is “are these as good as my grandmas were”. With that in mind, Java Jive and Crackerbarrel have biscuits that are on par with what she used to make.

Per a watiress during my most recent and probably final visit The Flying Biscuit, they changed the recipe for the biscuits @ the flying biscuit to reduce the calorie count from 600 a piece to 300 a piece. HUGE mistake. I went to TFB in Raleigh, NC a couple years back that they were great but recent went to TFB on Northside and the biscuits and the service was subpar.

I’ll take Chick-fil-a, J Christopher’s, etc over The Flying Biscuit any day of the week. If TFB wins this poll, I’ll know to stop paying attention to these threads.

Apparently not everyone knows what a true southern biscuit is. I love you Flying Biscuit – but I certainly don’t like your bisuits! Love Homegrown, J Christophers and Silver Skillet. If Thumbs Up had gravy as previously mentioned, they would get a “thumbs up”.

Biscuit Barn in Cumming on 141 is the best that I have found so far, note that they are not open on Sundays. Hardees is my second choice, assuming you can find one.

There is no better biscuit recipe than Popeye’s. For those who like biscuits with a fragile, crisp, buttery top, Popeye’s fills the bill with an easy-on-the-lard texture and a natural, traditional biscuit flavor, as opposed to the yucky, sweetened biscuits served at Chick-Fil-A. Hardee’s biscuits are my next favorite, very consistently prepared, and very complimentary to anything you put in them, from bologna to country ham to their luxurious new cheddar cheese.

Doesn’t make any sense to vote for a single-location restaurant those us on the other side of town have never been to, and likely never will go to, just to try the biscuits. We’ll take your word for it, but it really only makes sense to consider bisuits we eat regularly at our favorite chain/fast-food restaurants, and Popeye’s and Hardee’s has no equal. Thanks, y’all!

Well, I live over by the original Flying Biscuit Cafe and it’s a great restaurant but I have to say something about their biscuits.

First off, to me they’re not even biscuits. They’re scones – biscuit shaped scones. And when you have one with a cup of coffee they’re fine. If you eat it thinking of it as a scone, they’re actually quite nice. Also, they do well with a nice mushroom gravy.

But, let’s talk real biscuits. Full disclosure – I generally don’t go for biscuits when I eat at a real restaurant. Waste of stomach space. Therefore, I have no knowledge of restaurant biscuits.

Fast food biscuits? Hands down it’s Popeyes.

I’m sure a lot of people are going to name The Flying Biscuit, but that’s mostly hype.
My choice, believe it or not, is The Cracker Barrel. Big, hot, and fluffy, like a cumulus cloud in a hot summer sky, ready for splitting on a plate and loading up with gravy, or pulling apart and filling with butter and honey.

BUT, then later that day….you;re thinking, I really could go for one of them for lunch. And you’re making plans to figure out how to justify making sure you are near Lawrenceville the next morning. Not sure what it is….I think there’s drugs in them…….
