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. The Hot Hot Biscuit has Nashville-style hot chicken, dill pickles, and ranch; the Steak & Egg has sliced seasoned ribeye steak, egg over easy, and melted cheddar cheese.
Biscuit Bar also offers tater tots you can customize with toppings. Southern Style tots has house-made sausage gravy, cheddar cheese, and green onion. The Holiday Style features sweet potato tots with brown sugar, pecan streusel, and toasted marshmallow.
Guests can accompany their biscuit sandwich with a craft cocktail, locally sourced brew, cold brew coffee, or kombucha, all offered on tap.
Specialty cocktails 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.
