In Atlanta, we pride ourselves on being a city that is full of different, vibrant cultures all mixing together. One of the many incredible advantages to living in a place with people from so many different backgrounds and cultures is, of course, the incredible food we’ve got here!
One of Atlanta’s specialties is, without a doubt, the delicious Black-owned southern and soul food options.
This year, The New York Times named one of our many delectable restaurants in their list of the 50 Best Restaurants in America for 2023! Bomb Biscuits was one of two Georgia winners, and it’s right here in the heart of our city!
Bomb Biscuits has a rich history with the city, from a pop up shop all the way to a brick-and-mortar restaurant, we’ve loved Bomb Biscuits for a long time! Chef and owner, Erika Council started Bomb Biscuit in 2016 as part of a pop up Sunday Supper dinner series, which she hosted all around the city. Now, Bomb Biscuits has a permanent home at 668 Highland Ave NE Atlanta GA 30312.
The city instantly fell in love with her Glori-Fried Chicken Biscuit and Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit, along with some new classics, like the Lemon Pepper Chicken Biscuit (you know how we love our lemon pepper here!), and the S.E.C biscuit, which has savory sausage, egg and ‘the people’s cheese (American cheese).’ We also can’t recommend The Pimento Chick enough, if you love pimento cheese and jalapeño biscuits!
Bomb Biscuit also has vegan and gluten free options, so everyone can enjoy the deliciousness!
Needless to say, we couldn’t agree more with The New York Times! You’ve got to check out this homegrown Atlanta favorite, Bomb Biscuits! And Erika is, as she always says, spreading the love like butter, with her brand new cookbook, which she calls “A love letter to Black culinary excellence,” Still We Rise.
