So this post marks a FIRST. I used my iPhone to take these pictures! You may have noticed, but I ain’t eating out as much these days. So I don’t just leave my camera in my purse anymore because it’s just too heavy even though it’s just a point and shoot. People rave about this place, but I’ve shied away from Pine State Biscuits because I heard the weekend brunch wait and be pretty horrendous and I’m not a fan of heavy greasy breakfast foods like biscuits slathered in gravy, cheese, etc. But when Quack Man T came to visit with his friends, he said this place was a must. Lucky for me, Pine State Biscuits is a regular at the weekend PSU Farmer’s Market AND the line wasn’t so long.
I’m not sure if the menu is quite the same at their brick and mortar location. I had only one thing in mind, The Reggie, so it didn’t make a difference to me. Quack Man T couldn’t stop raving about it.
The Reggie fried chicken, bacon, cheese, topped with gravy
OK, it is pretty darn delicious. The biscuit is just the right amount of flakiness and butteriness. The chicken was crispy and moist. The bacon was smoky. I could have done without the cheese. The gravy was definitely made with a lot of love, not like that cafeteria gravy or the stuff that comes from powder. I wish there was more gravy because it got kinda dry in my mouth.
