Eager to get out of the house, Michal had a wonderful idea of getting food to-go, pouring the mimosas (my only requirement) into a yeti, and find us a spot in a park with an element of social distancing to enjoy our meal. We did just that!
In order to get this fun new adventure started, we had to first pick a place to eat. During quarantine we have kept a list of places that have popped up on our radar and have showcased their amazing looking food. The Biscuit Bar, with their multiple DFW locations, had done just that.
Every time a post from the Biscuit Bar came across one of our feeds we instantly started to drool of the decadent southern goodness it showcased. Huge fluffy biscuits topped with everything from eggs, to pulled pork, gravy, fried chicken… the list goes on and on! We had to give it a try.
We scheduled an order for pick up using their website. Michal ordered the Hot Hot Chicken, a Nashville Hot Chicken inspired biscuit with pickles and a Dill Infused ranch. It was Awesome. I got 'The HOSS' reminiscent to the McDonalds Bacon, Egg and Cheese biscuit from your childhood, but pumped with some amazing steroids that made this the adult breakfast dreams are made off. Yes, it sounds like it is something you should eat with a hangover, but I can promise you, any time will do. With Fried Chicken, Bacon, Cheese, Gravy and Honey Butter, 'The Hoss' delivered an all points. Be careful picking it up… it will get messy!
The Deep Ellum location is in a new complex off of Good Latimer and Gaston/Pacific (With the iconic 'Traveling Man' sculpture paying guitar out front) and offered plenty of picnic tables for dining. We threw the idea for finding a park out the window and stayed there (because we were the only ones eating outside) and enjoyed our meal in front of the restaurant. Nice to be able to sit outside by ourselves.
The mimosas were exactly what we needed and heavy on the Champagne. No complaints there. For dessert we had the Biscuit Nuggets, which were deep friend biscuit balls reminiscent of dense New Orleans style beignets. I devoured them without hesitation.
If you find yourself in Deep Ellum and looking for brunch, we can't recommend the Biscuit Bar enough. Heck, anywhere in DFW we are pretty sure there is one near you. Look them up and give them a try… you won't be disappointed.
