(DENVER, Colo.) Hello fellow foodies and welcome back to another edition of 'Mile High Eats,' a weekly food feature highlighting dishes from restaurants across the Denver metro.

This week, I found myself with no eggs, bacon or orange juice one morning and decided to take the easy route by eating out at the Denver Biscuit Company.

Part of a restaurant management group called Atomic Provisions that manages four restaurants and bars including Fat Sully's, Frozen Gold and Atomic Cowboy, Denver Biscuit Company is a Colorado breakfast joint you must try once. The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

With three locations in Denver, including a new one in Centennial opening soon, one in Aurora, another in Colorado Springs and even one in Kansas City, there are plenty of biscuits to go around. I stopped into the Tennyson location at 4275 Tennyson St. next to César Chávez Park.

Though I've been here many times and the shrimp and grits with poached pancetta in a biscuit bowl for $14.95 always catches my eye, I had to go with my usual: “The DBC Club.”

Topped with crispy bacon, this monster of a breakfast sandwich features a hearty helping of buttermilk fried chicken covered in cheddar cheese, shredded iceberg lettuce and a tomato all dripping with chipotle ranch dressing. It's so big, it comes with a skewer to hold this work of art together.

The sandwich costs $14.95, but if you have room in your wallet (and stomach), you can add a giant biscuit cinnamon roll for $9.95. If you're feeling frisky, add bacon on top of the roll for $12.90.

Since the restaurant operates, with Fat Sully's, the menu also offers sides including Sully's waffle fries smothered in house-made sausage gravy, Tillamook pimento cheese sauce and topped with bacon and green onions for $11.95.
