Too bad we could only award 5 stars. Sunrise Biscuits proves that when you make something excellent, the world will beat a path to your door. Plus, you improve the world's happiness level.

This place is drive-thru only and very popular. You can get many different kinds of biscuits (breakfast, country ham, etc.)

The lines can get long as this is a take out only place, but it is deffinately worth the wait. Bring your dog and they get a biscuit too :).

This is a tried and true local favorite. The biscuits are delicious (although on the crumbly side) and the biscuit sandwiches are a weekend favorite in our household. Bacon, egg, and cheese and chicken (fried) egg and cheese are our family favorites. The place is...More

Visited this restaurant for a hearty breakfast. It is without a doubt the best chicken biscuit I've ever had. Both the chicken and the biscuit were fantastic!

The drive-thru is very slow, and you have to make sure that you receive the correct change if you pay with cash, but the chicken biscuit was very good, and extremely filling!

It is less than 3 miles - left on MLK, left on North Estes and right on Franklin. Sunrise will be about 100 yds on the right

Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch! In brief, Sunrise was established in 1978 in Louisburg, NC (actually 1977 but that is a longer story) and has been responsible for providing Bigger Better Biscuits for Breakfast and Lunch ever since. Our biscuit recipe is based on my Grandmother's recipe. Her biscuits helped give her the stamina to give birth to 17 children and live to almost 100. Our Award-Winning Chapel Hill location is a Drive-Thru Only Restaurant for your convenience. The Louisburg location features a Drive-Thru option as well as seating. Our regular customers particularly value our great food and fast, friendly service. In addition to biscuits, we also serve hamburgers and hot dogs. Our sandwiches include barbecue, chicken salad and tuna salad (chicken and tuna salad in Chapel Hill only and made on-site). A real southern treat is our sweet tea. Come by soon! Our Chapel Hill restaurant is located at: 1305 East Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27514 (919) 933-1324 Our Louisburg restaurant is located at: 208 S. Bickett Blvd. Louisburg, NC 27549 (919) 496-2609
