Did you know that Wednesday, May 29th, is National Biscuit Day? Biscuits are a major part of any Birmingham breakfast.

Here’s a guide to some of our favorite biscuits in Birmingham that you should try on National Biscuit Day.

1. Jack’s

Where: 3429 Lorna Rd, Birmingham, AL 35216

Although Jack’s in Homewood is closed for renovations, we had to include them at the top of our list. I mean, we did say they were the best in the South… They have so many options from bacon, egg and cheese to chicken to pork chop biscuits, Jack’s is definitely a must for National Biscuit Day.
