“Please pass the biscuits, Pappy”

It was just a little after nine, but the Frisco was completely full, booths in both rooms and the counter, too, and there was no time to wait to be seated. How sad it was to see those pans of beautiful made-from-scratch biscuits coming out from the kitchen. We did take a pie home, though. Pies for the lunch crowd came from the oven just seconds after the biscuits. We picked up a discarded Dallas paper there, hoping to read more about those kids who found all that cash. So, no biscuits, but I thought of you, Pappy O’D.

    Love biscuits. Tell me, the Frisco sign, what is it? It looks like toast that had a run in with a snow cone. Do you know?

    We’re getting into eponymy here. That is the depiction of the of the Frisco Burger. It’s presented in a little sack (bottom half of sign) so that you can hold it in your hands without having juices drip. There’s a not good picture at:
    There’s a history of the Night Hawk at:
    There’s a little enshrined portrait of Mr. Atkins right inside the door.
    These really are the very best biscuits in Austin, especially if you order them and get them straight out of the oven. And the odds are good because they’re baked in small batches until it’s time to turn all efforts to pie. Biscuits are good at the Green Pastures breakfasts and also quite good at Luby’s. There are probably other homestyle places that bake them from scratch but I’m not sure. I hope to try Hoover’s one of these times.
