The Big Biscuit serves breakfast and lunch with portions that often overflow the plates, such as the 1/2-pound ham steak that is a de facto eating challenge. There are 10 kinds of pancakes if you include the pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in buttermilk pancakes) and a heap of omelets, waffles, scrambles and French toast. Lunch is burgers, sandwiches, salads and soups in the style of a country diner - it's not eating, unless there is something fried on the plate.
The first location for the breakfast spot opened in Independence in 2000 with a Blue Springs outpost following five years later. Founder Dan Gerson sold the business in 2009 to the current owners: David Offerdahl, Jay Carpenter and his father, Keith Carpenter. The trio opened the third location in Shawnee last year. The Big Biscuit in Prairie Village is open from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily.
Anybody been to the Prairie Village location or have thoughts on the other three restaurants?
