The Biscuit Bar, known for its unique biscuit creations and cocktails, is expanding across North Texas with plans to open five new locations by early next year. First up, a Deep Ellum location will open up for brunch and late night bites at 2550 Pacific Avenue, Suite 150.
Landing a spot in The Epic, the newest mixed-use project in the area, the design of this restaurant space will have a more industrial look and interior with extended late-night hours for busy evening traffic.
Currently, the Bar has two locations that really didn’t open that long ago. Plano was the first at The Boardwalk in spring 2018, and then an SMU location just opened this May. So, the business is growing fast.
Husband and wife co-owners, Jake and Janie Burkett, started The Biscuit Bar after trying out recipes in their own home. With backgrounds in venture capitalism and commercial real estate, the couple combined their skills to open a comfortable and affordable new dining spot.
“What inspired us was, really, just to have simple food,” Janie Burkett says. She also notes that people return to a place where they feel comfortable.
“From a business perspective, people come back to food they’re familiar with,” Janie says.
Another new location will be in Fort Worth at The Stockyards, in an old barn building labeled “B.” Janie says that they saw that as a sign for The “Biscuit Bar.” Arlington is up next at Champions Park, which overlooks AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park. Coppell is getting a location at the intersection of Sandy Lake and Denton Tap Road.
Lastly, a fifth new Biscuit Bar is coming to Allen Ridge in Abilene.
All the locations will be owned by the Burketts as they have no plans to franchise. Janie says that they look at their biscuit creations as “their babies.” And it makes sense. These biscuits are delicious. The HOSS is the most popular, named after Janie’s father. It includes southern fried chicken, bacon, jack cheese, house made sausage gravy and honey butter.
The F.A.B.B. is another favorite with sweet fig preserves, arugula, brie and bacon. The “holiday tots” are addicting. They’re sweet potato tots with brown sugar & pecan streusel and toasted marshmallow. Biscuit Bar also does several other biscuits with pulled pork, hamburger, ham, turkey and more.
Also, as an adult twist on childhood favorites, they make cereal boozy drinks. Options are Fruity Pebbles, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cocoa Puffs, which are all mixed with a vodka based mixture. Other cocktails include mimosas, Brunch Punch and Bloody Marys.
And if you’re not full after all of that, Biscuit Bar boasts three killer desserts. Nanner Puddin’ is with house made vanilla pudding and fresh sliced bananas. Biscuit nuggets are deep fried biscuit bites with vanilla, caramel and whipped cream. And the hot chocolate biscuit is a biscuit smothered in chocolate gravy and marshmallow fluff.
