Breakfast from Tudor’s Biscuit World is one of our family’s traditions. Every Sunday morning my husband runs out and picks us up some biscuits.
This Sunday hubby and Tall One needed to sleep late, so I took Little One for a little one-on-one breakfast date. Instead of driving through, we ate there. Family time is great, but kids need to have Mom (or Dad!) all to themselves sometimes. You can have a pretty deep conversation over biscuits.
Tudor’s is a little different from most restaurants. It started in West Virginia and for the most part it’s still here. We have a few strays in other states, but when I think of Tudor’s, I’m picturing West Virginia.
When we lived in my husband’s home state of North Carolina, I craved Tudor’s biscuits. Coming back home for a visit meant I could have a biscuit. (Yes, and visit friends and family – after I’d had a biscuit.) It was worth the drive.
Even the very names of the biscuits speak of West Virginia. Pick up a Thundering Herd or a Mountaineer if you’re feeling especially “native”. I always go with the more simply named Peppi, pepperoni and melted cheese on a biscuit. It’s GOOD.
Tudor’s is open until about 2:00, and many of their local restaurants share space with Gino’s Pizza. As one is shutting down, the other is warming up and they can share the same seating area and parking lot without too much trouble. It just makes good business sense, and West Virginians believe in sharing. Why don't more businesses think like that?
I have converted out of town friends and family members that now have to make a Tudor’s run anytime they visit. I completely understand. You MUST have a Tudor’s biscuit on your way into and out of the state. That’s why they have a Tudor's at the airport. It’s just something all West Virginians understand.
