Biscuits and Gravy (GA)
I will be in Georgia (Atlanta and Savannah) next week. I won't have time to seek out individual spots, so I'm wondering what common chain has the best, or at least passable, Biscuits and Gravy?
Keep in mind I am from Canada - I've never had this dish and may never have it again. So it doesn't have to be great, but I would hate to only try it somewhere that does a really BAD job either.
I think that Cracker Barrel serves biscuits and gravy. They are fairly easy to find off of the interstates. Some individual spots for biscuits and gravy in Atlanta:
Bobby & Junes Country Kitchen near Ga. Tech
Crescent Moon Diner in Decatur
Grandma Luke's in Little 5 Points
Flying Biscuit Cafe is not the place to have biscuits & gravy. I doubt they offer that dish since the biscuits are not traditional southern biscuits appropriate for gravy. They are enormous, fluffy, scone-like novelties with sugar and cream in the dough as well as a massive shot of baking powder, which do make the biscuits "fly" but give them a bitter aftertaste, and, too frequently, GAStrointentinal unpleasantless afterwards. Try Mamie's in Conyers.
I second Bobby & June's - 14th st atlanta.
skip the flying biscuit for authentic fare - their biscuits sink. . .
bob evans sausage will make a good gravy.
Hmmm Cracker Barrel website looks good. Really good, actually. Can cover grits and biscuits and gravy in the same meal! Also want to hit Waffle House. Too bad our hotel includes breakfast... good thing these places serve breakfast all day!
We will be visiting family most of the trip and well-taken care of for meals I suspect, but I think my husband is going to be very surprised at all the chains I want to hit on our free days!
