“The next wave of hot restaurants could be a basket full of biscuit concepts,” the trade journal Restaurant Business prophesied in 2016, focusing on Cracker Barrel’s planned biscuit-eatery spinoff Holler & Dash.

Heck, it could have mentioned the Florida-based Maple Street Biscuit Co. chain, which opened in 2012, and even the long-standing West Virginia-based chain Tudor’s Biscuit World, which opened in 1980. 

More recently, Louisville’s own Boujie Biscuit in Clifton has been delighting diners with its oversize, towering square biscuits for about a year now.

Robin Garr’s rating: 88 points.

Accessibility: The shopping center space is accessible to wheelchair users, but front-door thresholds have a bumpy concrete fill that could require a strong push to bump over.
