We were the unlucky table that got the blonde waitress with the blue t-shirt (everyone else had red ones) who was in a bad mood! First, she brought one glass of water for 4 people. Then when it was time to order, we were ready. We first asked for 3 mire waters & lemons before ordering the food. Before we... More

We had a party of 12 persons and everyone was elated with this wonderful food. The chicken fried steak, the omelettes, the tenderloin sandwiches, and the burgers were all exceptional. I must stop if you're in the area.

We needed a table for 8 on a crowded Sunday morning - although the wait time was long - it proved to be worth it. The menu has lots of variety of breakfast food. Did I mention these people know how to prepare hash browns? Nice and crispy on the outside, but still soft on the inside. The eggs in... More

My husband and I were in KC area for a Royals game. We decided on a good breakfast instead of expensive stadium food. Big Biscuit is a local place for breakfast and lunch. We had a short wait but were not disappointed. Typical breakfast fare but very tasty and great service. They hustle. We will be back next visit.

We hadn't been to Big Biscuit in Independence in awhile, so we decided to try it for our weekly lunch date. Great staff and very clean restaurant! We did not have to wait for a table at all. My Mom had the Hot Roast Beef sandwich and I had the Chicken Fried Steak. Both were very good, although the Chicken... More

Second time there and was awesome......highly recommend any of the Scrambles or the breakfast burrito.......goes without saying that the Biscuits and Gravy are great!! My only wish is that they made their corned beef hash from scratch!

My husband and I were greeted and seated with no waiting. I had the Turkey sandwich with fries. Generous amount of tasteful meat. The Turkey tasted fresh. Delicious. Husband had eggs, hashbrowns,sausage that looked home made and a very big and fluffy biscuit. Service was great. Great price. Definitely worth going back.
