The Buttered Biscuit Rolls Out New Menu Packed With Southern Flavor

NWA Daily

We stopped by The Buttered Biscuit's VIP Party last week as they unveiled some delicious new menu items and took our tastebuds for a ride into flavor town on the new Biscuit Bus, which can be found at Pinnacle Heights or scheduled for private events.

  • Southern hospitality: The local breakfast spot is known for handcrafted biscuits, benedicts, and waffles, made with fantastic attention to detail and an atmosphere of southern hospitality. They offer weekday kids-eat-free deals on chocolate chip pancakes; much of the menu can be made gluten-free!
  • New favorites: We genuinely loved them all, but the new menu items we can't stop thinking about are the Red Velvet Pancakes and the Deep South Sandwich – a biscuit loaded with crispy fried chicken on a pimento spread topped with bacon jam and in-house pickled zucchini.
