Square Biscuits

Square Biscuits
 
 
Always in search of great biscuits, I had just heard of Square Biscuits on Lincoln Avenue, very close to my physical therapist. I decided to give it a try today.

 
It's a nice little space in an old building that I believe was recently a barbecue restaurant.

 

 

 
The menu looks very good, and there were any number of items I could have ordered.

 

 
Naturally, I went with a biscuit. It was quite good, but it was a bit lukewarm, and cooled off even more as I ate it.

 

 
I especially liked the homemade blueberry jam. The strawberry was also very good.

 
I also had the Maple Black Pepper bacon. I should have ordered the plain, because it was too sweet, and I didn't really like the caramelized texture. It was very chewy. The flavor was very good.

    It's a nice little space in an old building that I believe was recently a barbecue restaurant.

     
    Way back yonder it housed a joint called Smokin' Woody's.  It was pretty good when Woody owned it*, but went to hell when he sold it to a couple of kids with high hopes and limited experience in the restaurant business.  After that it looks like it was called Mr. B's BBQ.  Must not've been there too long.  I never read or heard a word about it.
     
    You're right, it is a nice space.  It deserves a good tenant.  Hope these guys make it.

    *Woody owns a second location on Red Arrow Hwy. in Sawyer, MI.  He tried running both stores for a time, but found the back and forth travel too stressful.  As mentioned above, he sold the Chicago location and focused on the Michigan store which, to my knowledge, is still in operation and serving up some decent 'Que.

    I find it a little odd that the only biscuits & gravy menu item includes 2 eggs.  Even though it's not listed as a side, hopefully a half order of B & G only wouldn't be a problem.

    David,
     
    Them's what we call Square Biscuits 'round these parts.

    There may be some in your future. Will you be up on Sunday for our Canada Day Party?

    Those look great. 
     
    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it on Sunday. I've had some other plans for that day for some time.
