| Facebook

It’s only natural that our list of best biscuits and gravy is heavy on the bakery side. It’s a well-deserved nod to the foundation of this savory, comforting, hangover-healing dish.

Crunchy-crusted monoliths of thyme-infused buttermilk rise like steamy mountains from beneath a deep-in-color yet light-in-texture, flavorful gravy with a hint of sweetness. A welcome departure from the country-style smothering, this sausage-studded roux lets the giant, housemade biscuits shine. Finished with a refreshing garnish of pickled onions, Buttered Tin's biscuits and gravy is filling, but not so heavy as to induce a post-breakfast coma.
