The biscuit is one of our favorite sides. But it has a lot of versatility, too -- it can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner, a la carte, smothered with gravy or replace bread in a sandwich. We've chosen a few of our favorites to get you started; these are all places where biscuits are available on their own. Let us know if we missed any in the comments!

Table is closed (c'mon RFT) and the biscuits at Rooster are the shizzle wham-wham wizzle.

Enjoy the RFT, especially Gut Check, but the Bleacher Report-esque 5 page stories that could fit on one page thing is kind of ridiculous.

Sorry to hear that, Jim...this isn't a poll, though! Lists like these are some of our most-read stories. What would you like to see?
