Best breakfast in Atlanta – I started eating at the Flying Biscuit in Midtown about three months ago and all I can say is what have I been missing out on. A warm fluffy biscuit along with the salmon salad is a dream come true. Everything that I had on the menu is exceptional and they also serve beer, wine and in house cocktails which can't be beat.
If your just visiting town or new to the area definitely try out the Midtown Flying Biscuit but get there early because the wait is usually a very long time.
MSG? – I used to like this place. It's been downhill for a while. I met one of the Chinese brothers who bought this place and he said they would be making a lot of changes. Hopefully not adding msg to the greasy food!
worst in Atlanta – They have to either secretly hand out weed here with every order (maybe a small bag under the plate) or the many worshipers of this place simply have insipid taste! lol The ironic thing about this place is that the biscuits actually SUCK! Now I understand why they call it The Flying Biscuit, they do make great flying objects! lol
It is the only place in the world my wife and I ever left an entire plate of food (minus the one aweful bite we took!)
You guys who idolize this place can stand in your long lines awaiting your vapid dishes, I will stand elsewhere!
Untraditionally traditional breakfast. – The food is fresh, healthy, and has lots of twists on the traditional breakfast menu. People have already listed the different items you can get and here's my take on it: Whole Wheat biscuits are an incredible idea! Apple butter: spiced brilliance that you can use on almost anything. Peach cobbler made from a white biscuit with a ladle of canned peaches: eh, fail. Canned peaches on a biscuit doesn't equal cobbler. Other than that...I come here each chance I get with my family for some get-together or another. Great job!
Unique food – Food is great, service is great. Not exactly cheap but they certainly have some very unique dishes. The fried green tomatoes are one of a kind.
Best Breakfast in Atlanta – The Flying Biscuit is a must-go when in Atlanta. It might be overly obvious, but the biscuits are simply the best I've ever had. Be prepared for long lines on the weekends, but the food is worth the wait.
Overpriced, mediocre restaurant. not recommended – The menu was small. We ordered fried green tomatoes for 8 bucks and recieved four, thin slices with seven plates for our guests. They were out of ketchup, lemonade, wheat biscuits, and bacon. They did not have ranch dressing (in fact only one kind of dressing). The table next to us had to reorder their entire selections due to the shortage of food. They seemed poorly prepared for a Sunday afternoon. The "moon dusted potatoes" were indeed dusted with something but we feel they probably ran out of the correct seasoning. The potatoes potatoes were tasteless.
Great biscuits! – I love this restaurant and will drive from Canton
to downtown if I'm really craving a homemade
biscuits dripped in honey and a really great
Weekend "must do" brunch for Atlanta – This is a great place to meet up with friends and have good coffee, great food and run into a 30-something crowd. The wait is worth it!
The flying biscuit is great, just not this one!!! – I have been eating at the flying biscuit for years. Yesterday was my first time I have ever eaten at 1001 piedmont ave location. Well I had friends that came in from out of town and one was having a birthday. so after I raved about the "Flying B" for week he was excited. Well let me just say tha the service was slow and lack of service. Food took forever and tasted old and not very fresh. Half of the order was sent back and forget ordering more. My three cups of coffee was filled with grinds. so now it is just time to go. Then our check was not correct three times and to make it all worst my wife and my little boy got sick. Huh?? O and when I arrived it was sunday at dinner time and the rest. was very slow and had a few customers. So not sure the lack of customer service, lack of fresh food and well just all around bad time. Sorry to my friend for his birthday. I guess I should have taken him to a diff. Flying B. So need to say i would not go the one on 1001 piedmont ave, atlanta. I would go to the other ones for I have always had a great meal and great service.
