The biscuits they are coming, the biscuits they are coming, this time to Dallas: The Biscuit Bar, a fast-casual concept that opened its first location in Plano, has signed up for a second location, this one right by Southern Methodist University, at 6501 Hillcrest Ave.

According to a release, the location will open in 2019.

Founded by husband-and-wife Jake and Janie Burkett, Biscuit Bar features scratch-made biscuits crowned with a variety of sweet and savory toppings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night. That "late-night" part being especially relevant to the SMU crowd.

The concept made its debut in April 2018 at The Boardwalk in Granite Park.

Its most popular menu item, The Hoss, features Southern fried chicken, bacon, Jack cheese, sausage gravy, and honey butter.

Other highlights include the Chicken & Not-A-Waffle with pan-fried French toast biscuits, topped with house-made whipped cream and Southern fried chicken and customizable tater tot preparations, like the Southern Style with house-made sausage gravy, cheddar cheese, and green onion.

Guests can also accompany their biscuit sandwich with tots styled to personal taste and tipple on a craft cocktail, locally sourced brew, cold brew coffee, or kombucha, all offered on tap.

Specialty cocktails, crafted fresh daily and served on tap, include the Blackberry Tequila Smash with Reposado tequila, blackberry liqueur, triple sec and lime, and the Southern Tea made with grapefruit vodka and peach liqueur.

The 2,118-square-foot property will be designed by Dallas based agency Plan B Group and built by Gilmon Fox.
