my favorite restaurant in my hometown (columbia, south carolina) is a place called the biscuit house. it's only open weekdays 5am - 11am, but man what a treat for a long day of work ahead. they make amazing biscuit sandwiches: country ham, smoked sausage (i love the taste of mustard in the morning), fried chicken worth killing for, steak and even flounder on the right day. becuase i got used to this stuff, i never really fell in love with biscuits and gravy. i like biscuit sandwiches. anywhere that's not popeyes or the like that makes biscuit SANDWICHES?
I'm afraid you might be outta luck on this one - something-and-biscuit is one downhome Southern treat that seems never to have caught on here. I know that whenever I do a platter of ham biscuits or tenderloin biscuits for a potluck everyone acts as though they'd never seen such a thing. They also suck'em right up, so in case anyone's feeling entrepeneurial...
This might not exactly what you're after, but the cafe at Surfas in Culver City (amazing kitchen/restaurant supply store) has the most delicious ham biscuits. Really delish. But that's the only biscuit-related food they have, so I can't say whether it would be worth the trip.
