We spent a week in Asheville and had breakfast twice at this great place. Would have gone a 3rd time but line was ridiculous. They have really good large biscuits and you can get them as sandwich with chicken or as Benedict’s or have a...More

We had heard how popular this restaurant was on TV. Using locally sourced foods plus many unique choices makes this a perfect stop. Giant biscuits, a gravy sampling (awesome) & a butter & jelly bar for those plain biscuits. This is definitely worth a trip.

Visited this place for breakfast because of the phenomenal reviews online. We ordered three different plates to sample different biscuit-meat combinations. Our review: big salty biscuits with little flavor, topped with small amounts of cheese and meat. Biscuits were overly salty and dry, it’s obvious...More

First time coming here. They do some mean biscuits, and they do it many different ways. Nice place to eat.

We went here while traveling through Asheville. We see a lot of good reviews but ours is not one of them. Really disappointing. Big dry biscuits with not enough gravy.

Family visit to Asheville to see Biltmore House. We stopped here for breakfast on the way back to Virginia. Oh boy, it’s better than the reviews promise. It is busy, the line moves fast. So take heart and stop by. You won’t be sorry.

This was our first visit to Biscuit Head in Asheville after reading so many great publications on this little restaurant. We arrived about 11:15am on a Friday morning, we were thinking late breakfast and there shouldn’t be a long line. We were wrong, there was...More

They do not take reservations. The service is quick, however, if the eaters are slow, then that will surely cause a wait. We arrived around 8:30 hoping to avoid the long lines. Fortunately our wait was only 10 minutes or so... More
