Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen

Chapel Hill’s Award-Winning Biscuits

Nothing has changed much at Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen. Not only is its tiny drive-thru shop still marked by signage from the ‘70s, it is still the spot for the best homemade biscuits and cinnamon rolls in North Carolina. Founded in 1978, Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen has been doling out their famous Bigger Better Biscuits filled with fried chicken, sausage and egg for forty years. In fact, it has become such an establishment on Chapel Hill, that it’s pretty much a crime if you graduate as a UNC student without ever visiting. Today, third-generation David Allen runs the shop with his grandmother’s original biscuit recipe—a recipe he believes powered her to raise seventeen children and live to almost 100!

We're not the only ones who love them!

Sunrise Biscuits has been named “Best Biscuits in the US” by Food and Wine, “Top 5 Breakfast Destinations in the US” by the Food Channel "One of the Top Biscuits to Eat Before Their Gone" by Road Food and “Best Breakfast in North Carolina” by Food Network Magazine. They’ve been featured in Serious Eats, Roadfood, Travel Channel, and Eater.
