Flying Biscuit Cafe
I've heard so much about the Flying Biscuit Cafe that I knew I had to try it. I finally got there this weekend. I went to their original location, fairly near Inman Park. It's an authentically funky spot.
I ate at the take-out counter to speed things up. I had biscuits and gravy and a side of sausage. Quite frankly, I was slightly disappointed. On the plus side, the gravy was full of chunks of sausage. But it was too thin for my taste. Gravy needs to be substantial---it is the glue that holds the ribs together during a hard day's work. I also found the biscuits to be a little too homogeneous and without the flaky structure that comes from hand working. It certainly hit the spot, but I think that some other locations around town that I've written about, such as Country Kitchen and Silver Skillet, have better (and more authentic) biscuits and gravy.
