Biscuit House, 1019 Bluff Road: October 2010   7 comments

Posted at 2:10 am in restaurants

There were two problems with my ever visiting Biscuit House on Bluff Road behind the stadium: A) It was way on the other side of town and B) That whole waking up before absolutely necessary breakfast thing.

Of course, lots of other people don't have those problems, and the Biscuit House apparently developed quite a reputation over the years. In fact, there was a spate of newspaper articles when its closing was announced, and even a video documentary.

In the end, the problem was the same as for the Farmers' Market: USC bought up all the land for football parking. The good news is that apparently the Biscuit House recipies will live on in franchaised kiosks in local convenience stores.

These pictures were mostly taken against the sun, unfortunately.

  1. Another casualty of the USC football program was Stadium Cleaners which was on the corner of Bluff Road and Georege Rogers Blvd wher the stadium sign now stands. Originally it was on the fairgrounds side of the road, but when the Highway Department widen and shifted the road, it found itself in the stadium parking lot. For years they had a sign saying open until the year their lease expired, but the school finally bought them out.

  2. Another think ruined by the all conquering God Of Football at USC. Yea.

    The Biscuit house bilding was at one time occupied by The Stadium Steakhouse, which moved to the Millenium Buffet/Twin Peaks/Frank and Stein building in the late seventies. After that, it was occupied by a Chinese restaurant, but I can't recall the name.

  3. The University tries to expand on everything except their ability to communicate and have extra student parking...

    The Biscuit House is now open at 10401 Broad River Road in Irmo for those that can fancy a drive out that way for biscuits like these (it's across the street from where Koon & Broad River Road meet)...

    anyone been to the DL McLaughin's restaurant at that intersection??

  5. Yes, they do. Seriously the best in town. They also were the owners of Sub Cabin. I think that's documented somewhere on this site. Biscuit House is incredible. I never thought I'd miss Bojangles, but that time has come.

  6. A new Biscuit House is opening at the intersection of Garners Ferry Road and Lower Richland Boulevard. The interior remodeling has begun.

  7. I worked in a warehouse off of Bluff over the summer my first year at USC, and almost every first break I'd be in line at Biscuit House. They had some of the best breakfast food I've ever eaten. Yet another great, albeit bittersweet post.
