Bite My Biscuit

It’s all about the biscuit!  Anybody can offer you sandwiches on somebody else’s bread but Candace and Grant  Lambdin serve up a host of delightful sandwiches served on scratch made biscuits.

The creative menu board is your first indication that this truck doesn’t follow the crowd but goes it’s own way to stand out in a good way.

When you walk up to the gleaming stainless steel trailer, your first glimpse of the creative spirit inside that came up with all the recipes are the menu boards hanging on the side of the trailer drawing you in to discover what tantalizing treats are to be found. Interesting, ingenious and practical – just take down the mini-blackboard when you run out of an item.

If you fall into the group that follows the mantra, “Life is short, eat dessert first”, then like me, your eyes are gonna naturally fall on the board that says Brandy Biscuit Bread Pudding first.

Brandy Biscuit Bread Pudding –  Did I say Brandy?  ‘Nuff said!

And that first bite is gonna make you want to order another one!  But don’t, there’s lots more good stuff waiting for you on another board.

The wife and I quickly make a sandwich choice and my penchant for all things beefy and spicy make my choice easy -The Spicy Biscuit Burger.

The spicy burger biscuit ($7) comes with candied jalapenos, bacon cream cheese and a generous beef patty.

The Spicy Burger Biscuit is a different take on the traditional burger.  The biscuit is a little sweet, the patty substantial but fear not – it’s only a little spicy.  I was curious about the candied jalapenos and happy to see that restraint is the order of the day.  The candied coating is light and nicely contrasts with the ‘heat’ of the freshly sliced jalapeno.  It’s obvious the ingredients are high quality and fresh.

The menu offers a number of othersandwich options, including the Fried Chicken Biscuit ATW (All The Way), and the FFL-FGT (a bacon and fried green tomato sandwhich with fresh arugala).   I’ll try one of those on a future visit but today is a beef day.  The wife being more appreciative of well matched ingredients less commonly found on a sandwich opted for the Chef Biscuit.

The Chef Biscuit ($8) is the most popular sandwich at Bite My Biscuit. It’s no wonder with juicy, tender Hangar Steak, Arugala, Red Onion and the special  Balsamic Creme Fraiche sauce.

A meal needs more than a burger – it needs potatoes!  And what better proof do you need that they’re incredible than the Sweet Potato Frites selling out just before we ordered !  The frites are shredded,  deep fried to a crispy state and drizzled with marshmallow brandy cream sauce.   I will be trying the frites on a future trip to Bite My Biscuit!

The Potato Fries ($4) are thinly sliced and lightly deep fried.

With the frites sold out, we had to ‘settle’ for the Potato Fries.  Sliced super thin, deep fried to a golden color they make you think of potato chips.  Ours came out a little less crispy than I expected but if you like your taters prepared this way, these are certain to please.

Here’s the whole meal.  Plenty for two for about $22 bucks not counting drinks.
