Chicken biscuit was yummy! Biscuits are good without being greasy. Chicken is thick overrunning the biscuit and has delicious breading. Did not like the frozen hash brown potato that was freezer burned before frying to a crisp, however.

OMG I’ve always visited Time-Out for a chicken and cheddar biscuit. This was my first stop at SBK, and I was blown away! The biscuit was fresh, not too crumbly and buttery. The chicken was crispy and seasoned so well. The cheese was thick, melty...More

Sunrise Biscuit kitchen is a great place to get quick food that tastes amazing! We get biscuits every sunday and it is the perfect start to the day. Sunrise always has a line, but it's so worth the wait.

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
