    we are from Texas and we came here not knowing what to expect and it was so amazing! a great look into Georgia and southern comfort food! Mac and cheese is really great and the biscuits are HUGE!

    The angel burger was good, if it had avocado it would been great! Their grits are amazingly delicious! Very creamy and smooth, it's a must try!

    Excellent food. Meggsican wrap sauce is a bit too hot and not enough tomato. Great cocktails for brunch - all in a pint glass for $4.95. Grits are to die for.

    Same as the others: get the creamy grits. Also, the biscuits are not to be underrated, especially with the apple/cranberry(?) butter, and the fried mac and cheese and anything with the tomato aioli.

    Some of the best grits (creamy and dreamy!) and biscuits (with apple butter!) around the South. You haven't truly experienced Flying Biscuit unless you've eaten here, the original.

    I'm a fan of the food here but I'm not a fan of the "survival biscuit" that they give you with almost every meal. It's not for everyone. Pillsbury Grands please!

    The Creamy Grits here were very good thanks to the butter in them. Chicken Sausage patties were good, but salty. Biscuits have a whole wheat option. Potatoes were nothing special. Street parking.

    The Flight of the Biscuit: Atlanta's favorite brunch joint all started with the original Flying Biscuit location in Candler Park. The franchising rights went to Raving Brands in 2007.

    On the menu alongside standard eggs and gigantic biscuits: organic oatmeal pancakes, homemade granola, turkey bacon, and free-range chicken sausage. Read more

    Egg-ceptional eggs are yummy and I love the biscuits. Follow it with an ice chai tea and you'll leave with a happy tummy. Weekends here are crazy, so expect a wait.

    Despite their appearance, the lava cakes are delicious. And make sure to get a biscuit, mostly to go wild with the accompanying apple butter.

    Smoked Salmon Eggs thingy was so good. The grits were amazing. I don't have any pictures b/c it was that good.

    The original! Anything goes well with one of their famous biscuits with homemade cranberry apple butter

    Go to the original on McLeandon for the best vibe, but they're all good. Try an egg dish with a famous biscuit.

    OMG, everything was delicious. But the weekend Johnnycakes and dreamy grits were worth writing home about. "Dear mom and Dad...."

    If I had to design my dream omelette, it would include goat cheese, mushrooms, and a tomato topping. Thankfully, it exists at the biscuit; it's the Clifton. True Love.

    Two words: creamy grits. Their grits will make any other bowl of grits elsewhere taste like dog poo to you. In other words, try the grits.

    Flying stag? Pop into the bakery when the dining room is crowded and settle up to the bar. You'll be taking down a Flying Biscuit Breakfast b4 you can say "Joy, party of 6!"

    I went here for dinner this evening...Food was excellent, but...a wino came in and asked my table for money, and the restaurant workers did not ask him to leave. Will complain to management tomorrow.

    Had the BBQ chicken burrito. It was a let down. Next time I'll take the advise of my fellow Foursquare users & try the grits.

    The first door on the corner is for the bakery. Keep walking two doors down for the dining room. It's the door by the sign hanging out over the sidewalk.

    Make sure you wait outside of the door to be seated. Otherwise they'll bitch you out and tell you to step outside!
