BRB ... Think I Need Another Biscuit ...

Services for Real Estate Pros with Real Estate Shows

Tudor's Biscuit WorldBreakfast 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.

Sarah and Her PeppiEven 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.

Didn't I just comment on your post regarding convenience?  Where's the link?  Do they send biscuits around the country overnight?  Honestly, Sarah, it looks so good in the early a.m. that I'm going to Google and find out!

We don't see many biscuits up this way... usually bagels.  One thing I do like to do is eat and enjoy a variety of foods, when driving to Florida years ago I did have biscuits & gravy with a side of grits...

Hi Sarah,
I can't believe you could not find a good biscuit in North Carolina.  We make great biscuits here.  :0)

The one on one with the little one--that's making memories time.

Missy - Need me to Fed Ex you a biscuit??

Mike - I thought about putting the menu in, but it's not complete, doesn't even list the different biscuit names.  I asked if they had any kind of carry out menu and they said no.  Guess I should have taken a picture of the board and posted that.  Thanks, though!

Dan -  Bagels are good, but biscuits are better!!  :o)

Cynthia - North Carolina had good biscuits, just not THESE biscuits.  There's a difference!  Come see!

Maggie - I would love to hear about your truck stop!  I have one I could write about, too!

Hey Sarah - I remember we 'discussed' Tudor's previously, on your post about the news site with all of the weird cartoons.  I really need to look into a franchise for the Austin area.  It made me hungry just thinking about biscuits.  Thanks so much for posting this to the new group!  I really appreciate it.  I need to go see if we have some biscuits here in the house....

My favorite place to get a biscuit is right here at home - most weekends my husband will get into "biscuit mode" and start experimenting (he's on a quest for the Perfect Biscuit) - and I get to be the lucky recipient of all those experiments.  Raspberry jam mixed with orange marmalade on a fluffy confection - mmmm.  Sage sausage tucked between two halves - perfect breakfast!  (Oh, darn, you got me started.  And it's Monday - no Phil's Biscuits for me until Saturday!)

Jason - You would love this place!  And your kids could laugh at you if you ordered a "Tootie".  ;o) 

Diane - Have I told you my sister in law lives in Mooresville?  And she LOVES Tudors!!  Should I have her bring you a biscuit on her next visit?

Aziz - I am so sorry.  Don't visit when I post about another food place next, OK?  Make me feel mean!

Matt - If all the old West Virginians keep going down there for the winter, you guys may end up with one!  We hate to be too far from our biscuits.

Tricia - Geez, that sounds even better than going out for one!  You lucky girl!!!

Missy - Wasn't the same?  I LOVE our biscuits here!!  I should seriously be much heavier than I am.

Sally - Mmmm!  Donuts!!!

Tom -   LOL!!!  Meat and cheese smashed in a biscuit.  GOOOOOOOOD.
