We dropped by twice on our most recent visit to Asheville. The first visit we showed up towards the end of their lunch hours, and there was hardly a line. I got the fried green tomato biscuit, very good though I wished I'd ordered something...More

Looking at it from the outside one might be tempted to say "nah", for that matter looking on the inside one might be tempted to say "nah". It is definitely an eclectic place. But when all was said and done, the breakfast was "Great". These...More

After several failed attempts due to long lines out the door, we finally made it in for a meal. We weren’t disappointed. “Cat head” sized biscuits made to perfection. Smoked grits were a little weird, but the fried chicken and assortment of jams hit the...More

Exceptional homemade food and a great, interesting menu with traditional and creative items. Coffee was excellent. And the jam and butter bar was one of a kind that made their biscuits even better than great. And quite the value!

The food here probably warrants closer to 4 stars but the over hype and insane clown posse lines make me give 3. Yeah the biscuits are good (not the best), gravy flight is good but come on, when I want my food I cant fathom...More

Hip and colorful ambiance of the restaurant and the food! Crowded, and the system needs help, but the food is worth some of the the confusion of the atmosphere! Biscuit Head offers a great selection of jams and spreads! Flavors I have never heard off...More

Yes most likely upon arrival you will find a line. It is worth the wait. I'm not one to wait more than 30 minutes but for this place I will. By the time you wait in line to order tables have usually turned over. It...More

We had been referred to the restaurant by a friend who travels a lot. We went to the location on Biltmore first but there was a long line out the door. We drove to this location and the line was smaller and moved pretty quick....More

I love biscuits. These were certainly large, though I have had better. Quantity over quality is not my preferred formula. The rest of the food was tasty. The jelly bar was delightful and almost worth the visit by itself. Standing in line is hard for...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
