Apparently it's next to impossible to find a decent biscuit in Austin, TX. After having moved here from the NC biscuit-belt, I often find myself craving a good biscuit on a Sunday morning after a hard couple of nights.
I'll be coming to Birmingham in a couple of weeks to see my hound on the ground, Dax. And I'm going to want biscuits on a Saturday and maybe Sunday morning, and I know Dax won't be making them for me (although he better be tending to his smoker). After a cursory search of the board, I seemed to have come up with Cedar Point Restaurant and Bogue's as a couple of options. I like biscuits and gravy, but will probably also want some good salty country ham on a biscuit too. Maybe even some sorghum molasses. Drive-thru places are A-okay. Sit-down is fine too, but I get the feeling that a place like Bogues is probably packed to the gills with a mile-long line on a weekend morning, and I don't want no part of that. Bojangles does put a smile on my face for the biscuits, but not crazy about their country ham, and I can get a Chik-fil-a or Popeye's chicken biscuit around here. So, preferably a good local place that has good gravy and good ham, and great biscuits.
