“Way more than just biscuits and gravy”
In late 2009, Drew Shader knew that the city of Denver needed biscuits. Big, buttery, flaky, melt in your mouth biscuits. At the same time, the gourmet food trucks garnering so much publicity on the coasts had yet to migrate to Colorado; Drew thought that Denver needed one of those too. The idea of the Biscuit Bus and subsequently The Denver Biscuit Co was born. With the help of his wife Ashleigh and Executive Chef Jonathan Larsen, they created Denver’s first gourmet food truck, The Biscuit Bus. While the Biscuit Bus was being built, Shader and crew opened The Denver Biscuit Co in the back of his existing bar, The Atomic Cowboy. Unsure as to whether Denver was ready for this unique breakfast concept, let alone one serving out of a well established drinking place, DBC was a long shot at best. It didn’t take long before Drew and his crew realized that he had hit on something when after only a few months, weekend lines were stretching out the front door and wait times were upward of an hour. What started as a commissary kitchen for the Biscuit Bus had blossomed into Denver’s Best Breakfast, featured on multiple TV shows from The Cooking Channel to CNN, Headline News and many more.
We are from the South, the homeland of biscuits, so we had to check this place out while in Denver. It did not disappoint! I had The Lola, a large biscuit sandwiched with fried chicken, honey butter, and bacon, then covered in maple syrup. Yum! The chicken wasn’t quite your typical Southern fried chicken, but it was good and the honey butter was the best I’ve ever had. The decor is awesomely retro and they had a walk-up window for the pizza side of the business. Great place to get fueled up before a busy day exploring Colorado! The neighborhood behind it was also a cool place to drive around and check out the beautiful homes. Wish we had gone back to try the pizza. Next time :)
Best biscuit to date! Homemade taste Huge servings! My normally picky 7 year old gobbled hers up...:). Highly recommended if you're in town.
This place is amazing. I was worried that the biscuit would not fill me up so I ordered a side the first time I went... HA rookie mistake. This place leaves you warm, full, and ready to come back next week!
