(Colorado Springs, CO) The Denver Biscuit Company in downtown Colorado Springs offers a unique spin on chicken and biscuits. The chicken, served on a freshly baked biscuit, is piled high with options for every taste.

This full-bar restaurant resides in a refurbished industrial building at the corner of Tejon Street and Moreno Avenue. It has an open, airy, relaxed feel with a chalkboard menu and plenty of booth space. It is a welcoming atmosphere with delicious food.

The Ellsworth sandwich is a crispy piece of buttermilk fried chicken served with pickles on a biscuit sitting in a dollop of honey. The bottom half of the biscuit absorbs the sweet flavor while the top half has a spicier stone ground mustard.

There was too much mustard for my taste, so I scraped off a tablespoon-sized amount of the condiment before finishing the meal. Other than the mustard, the sandwich was delicious. The house-made pickles were surprisingly good and had a great blend of sweet and spicy flavors.

A dining companion devoured the Franklin, a biscuit sandwich with fried chicken, bacon, and cheddar cheese smothered in sausage gravy. He added the optional egg which made the plate even messier but tastier. It was certainly a fork and knife sandwich.

The Schooner (pictured in the cover photo) was the highest stacked sandwich at our table. The cornmeal-battered catfish was accompanied by a healthy portion of coleslaw and tomatoes. The tartar sauce had a distinct horseradish flavor which mixed well with the fish and coleslaw. This meal earned a solid two thumbs up.

Another member of our party ordered the Lola, chicken and bacon covered in maple syrup with a french toast biscuit. This sandwich was the least well-received meal at our table as the biscuit was mushy and perhaps undercooked after undergoing the french toast process.

When brought to the waitstaff's attention, she immediately offered a plain biscuit to replace the soggy french toast one. The customer service was outstanding, and the Lola on a plain biscuit hit the mark.

The sandwiches cost between $13 to $15, and they are a hearty meal, so bring your appetite.

The Denver Biscuit Company is open for breakfast and lunch. After 2:00 p.m. on weekdays (and 3:00 p.m. on weekends), the restaurant shifts to serving Fat Sully's Pizza. During the lunch hours, customers can order from both menus providing a nice variety for dining parties with assorted tastes.

For patrons interested in a sweet dairy treat to end their meal, walk through the restaurant to Frozen Gold, the adjoining ice cream parlor. Biscuits and ice cream - life doesn't get much better than that.

I will see you there!
