Quest for biscuits and gravy on Highway 20
« on: October 08, 2010, 10:13:01 AM »
The other day I stopped by Simply Southern on Highway 20 in Freehome. Not wanting a full breakfast I ordered biscuits and gravy with sausage. Biscuits were good,but that is as far as I will go about anything being good. The gravy was the worse rendition of paste that I have ever had. Even, back when my wife tried to teach me how to make gravy, my mistakes were much better than what Simply Southern served. No wonder drywall hangers like to eat here, they can get their own supply of "mud". Simply Southern used to be a decent meat and 3 or breakfast stop. Don't think I'll be stopping there again.

This morning I stopped by Cherokee Cattle Company (Highway 20 at Ducktown). I ordered biscuits and gravy with sausage with compare to Simply Southern. Result wasn't bad. Biscuits were smaller than SS, the gravy at least had some decent flavor and hot and wasn't nearly as pasty. Sausage wasn't homemade. Standard patties you can get anywhere.

Anyone have any other ideas along H20 in the Cumming area where one can get decent biscuits and gravy or a decent country breakfast?

The other morning I stopped by Gus's Biscuit Barn on Spot Rd Connector and Doc Bramblett Rd, off H20 .4 mile behind Sawnee Elementary School (when you turn left on Doc Bramblett you'll see it straight ahead). GBB used to be a little community c-store that sold mostly Mayfield milk and ice cream with the occasional loaf of bread, farm fresh eggs and gallons of coffee to the locals. It has been converted into a small b'fast/lunch convenience stop. Of note and the purpose of this thread is biscuits and gravy. They are homemade biscuits, homemade gravy with lots of sausage in the gravy. The sausage is locally made. Try one of their patty's with eggs served in the small sides of the styrofoam serving containers. Plastic eating ware also provided.
Good stuff. I had a biscuit and gravy, sausage patty and 2 eggs and a cup of coffee for just barely over $5.00. All homemade.
