Visited this restaurant for a hearty breakfast. It is without a doubt the best chicken biscuit I've ever had. Both the chicken and the biscuit were fantastic!

The drive-thru is very slow, and you have to make sure that you receive the correct change if you pay with cash, but the chicken biscuit was very good, and extremely filling!

A very popular drive-in breakfast stop; so popular, you may sit in a car-line for awhile, especially on the weekends. Definitely worth the wait! Be ready to go somewhere else to eat because this is not a sit-down restaurant.

We love their ham biscuits and cinnamon roll!! You can either go through the drive through or park and walk in. There's only room for about 3 people ordering inside. Very friendly and great food!

It is less than 3 miles - left on MLK, left on North Estes and right on Franklin. Sunrise will be about 100 yds on the right

Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch! In brief, Sunrise was established in 1978 in Louisburg, NC (actually 1977 but that is a longer story) and has been responsible for providing Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch ever since. Our biscuit recipe is based on my Grandmother's recipe. Her biscuits helped give her the stamina to give birth to 17 children and live to almost 100. Our Award-Winning Chapel Hill location is a Drive-Thru Only Restaurant for your convenience. The Louisburg location features a Drive-Thru option as well as seating. Our regular customers particularly value our great food and fast, friendly service. In addition to biscuits, we also serve hamburgers and hot dogs. Our sandwiches include barbecue, chicken salad and tuna salad (chicken and tuna salad in Chapel Hill only and made on-site). A real southern treat is our sweet tea. Come by soon! Our Chapel Hill restaurant is located at: 1305 East Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27514 (919) 933-1324 Our Louisburg restaurant is located at: 208 S. Bickett Blvd. Louisburg, NC 27549 (919) 496-2609
