Imagine the fluffiest, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits stuffed with practically anything and there you have yourself one of the brunches ever created in the history of the universe at the Denver Biscuit Company on south Broadway. Opened in 2009 by Drew Shader, DBC aims to bring the best of southern comfort food to the Mile High City and with a menu this mouth-watering you’ll think you’ve been transported straight to a plantation house.
Might I recommend the Franklin, with buttermilk fried chicken, Tender Belly bacon, a fried egg and cheddar cheese smothered in sausage gravy. It was so incredibly delicious. There's other savory options like BBQ pulled pork, PBR battered fried catfish, BLT, biscuit potpie and sausage or sweet varieties served on biscuit French toast (which is really far too heavenly than should ever be allowed) and strawberry shortcake for dessert. In case you simply cannot narrow down your choice, there’s also an option to build your own biscuit sandwich. And for the southern bumpkin, there’s the option of shrimp and grits. You really can’t go wrong.
DBC also serves two of the very best adult beverages this city has to offer. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good, spicy Bloody Mary and Denver Biscuit Co. just so happens to top theirs off with the most delicious of dark beers, Left Hand Milk Stout. You also shouldn’t die without trying a big kids iced coffee. Supposedly there’s booze in it (vanilla vodka and coffee liqueur specifically), but it tastes like something you’d get at a Starbucks drive thru. Boy those are dangerous.
Denver Biscuit Company was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network and rightfully so. Visit their website to watch the episode in case you need any further motivation to try out this epic brunch spot.
DBC is open Monday through Friday from 8am until 2pm and until 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. If you arrive there vaguely during breakfast hours on the weekend, be prepared to wait a solid hour. But, just remember that it's totally worth it. Do yourself a favor and just go there. Please?
