Our first and only visit – A group of us at work went during lunch to try it before having a party for a co-worker. We had no trouble being seated, and our waiter was friendly. Other than those two notes we have little else positive to add. Although our waiter was friendly, the amount of time it took to receive our food was unbelievable. Unless you have a two-hour lunch break or you own the company don't even think about it for lunch. The food was terrible. Two of us had turkey burgers. We both agreed the turkey tasted great, but it was smaller than the bun. The guacamole I ordered on mine tasted sour, and the plain avocado on the other turkey burger was turning black. My co-worker could have added some lemon from her glass of tea to stop the turning, but they were out of lemons. Two other people ordered cheeseburgers, and they seemed to be okay, but for four burgers they brought a plate with three small ramekins: one of mustard, one of mayonnaise, and one of an unknown, pale, orange, tasteless sauce. They were, however, generous with the ketchup. We were thankful for the extra ketchup since the fries were scrawny and dry. We also thought the buns were soggy from the tomatoes and lettuce. One of us ordered hot-wings. She thought the chicken tasted old, and the neon-orange sauce tasted mostly of vinegar, or maybe she was tasting the raw-sewage breeze that kept wafting by. A great view of the city? Maybe of the city employees working on the sewage. In general, we were unhappy with King Biscuit. We won't have our co-worker's party there, we have no plans to return, and we definitely don't recommend it.
Just So So – I had driven past King Biscuit a couple of times and finally decided to try it for lunch one day. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich and my boyfriend had a salad. The food wasn't bad.. it was just ok. His salad seemed to have a litle too much dressing on it and had no real taste to it. The bread for my sandwich get falling apart in my hands. Since we njoy eating at off beat places we were disappointed that the food wasnt any better. Not really good enough to warrant a return visit.
King Biscuit=good – okay people,
My husband and I have been going to King Biscuit for well over a year now and have yet to have a sour experience. I love everything I've ever ordered and the staff couldn't be nicer. There was a pretty good jazzy band there about a week ago, and when there isn't live entertainment you can still enjoy watching the game at the bar. King biscuit=good
Best Neighborhood Bar – This is the most eclectic "Cheers" bar in the Heights. The Hummus plate is to die for, the service is downhome and friendly, and they have WIFI so you can work at the bar while having a beer!
An incomparable view of downtown makes this funky Heights bar and grill something special. – In Short
The big draw here is the incomparable view of White Oak Park in the foreground, with the downtown skyline shimmering in the distance. A bowtie pasta dish crowned with a chunk of blackened tuna is satisfying, if a tad over-sauced. Even a dinner salad, splashed with a lemony house vinaigrette, is well executed. Bar food is nothing to shy away from either. A nacho platter using red tortilla chips is the perfect complement for drinks on the patio.
Wow! – I was pleasantly surprised when my friends took me to King Biscuit. I was a little hesitant on the name, etc., but shouldnt have been. The whole experience was really nice. We ate outside on the patio (however, there was no view of downtown since it was covered by the spring leaves on the trees), and had a lovely time. The food was great and was really classy and well done. I had the artichoke dip, which was wonderful. So was the Greek salad and chicken breast. My husband got the Philly-cheese steak which was also hearty and wonderful. My only complaint was that our waiter wasnt too friendly or exceptional. Luckily, we were in good company and werent too bugged by it. I would definitely go back and take friends.
Where's The Food???!!! – We went on a Friday night 3/19/2004. They were "out" of almost everything on the menu! I attempted to order 4 different entrees before choosing one that was actually available!! Then they "forgot" to make it! They also forgot another entree that our table had ordered, but I guess they forgot that it was even ordered at all, there was no mention of it. The waitress offered to make me something quick, which I'll say was difficult, considering that they had no food, so I ordered a green house salad, which they didn't put on my bill, "Big Deal"! We waited for at least an hour for our food, and I found myself apologizing to my friends for choosing such a lousy place. I was very dissappointed and WILL NOT go back.
