I believe the name Flying Biscuit came about as they these tasty biscuits fly out of the kitchen. Yes, they are good and I recommend a stop to check it out for yourself. The McLendon location is not too large, so time your visit accordingly....More

The food here is amazing! So many options it’s hard to pick. The high flyer is a lot of food, and has just about everything; eggs, sausage, biscuit, an oatmeal pancake with peaches, and grits (I swapped mine for an extra biscuit). I’m not a...More

I've been to this location on many occasions. It's always delicious even if you do have a short wait sometimes. The grits are worth writing home about!! The atmosphere is fun and the servers treat you well. A truly "must stop" for anyone visiting Atlanta.

When I moved to Atlanta, Gato Bizco was the first greasy spoon I nursed a hangover in. 

 As my eyes began to focus and my need to stare straight down into my coffee abated, I noticed a long line of bland people standing across McClendon.

We have been there before, but later in the day. This time we went to breakfast and it was great! Tasty eggs, bacon, phenomenal biscuits and the oh, so creamy grits. Service was relaxed but attentive. We were not disappointed.
