Had breakfast here with my wife and her sister. Decor is plain but busy - lot of KC sports memorabilia and photos of celebs on the wall. Tables and chairs built for quick and easy clean-up (comfy enough and tables were clean). Service was very...More

My wife and I have eaten breakfast many times at Big Biscuits. We've always had a good time and above average food. We came at 2:00 p.m. The place was almost empty, we asked if it was okay to be there, our hostess (then waitress)...More

On our final morning in KC, we came here for breakfast. We had a short wait, but nothing horrible. Our server was friendly and efficient. We shared a loaded sticky biscuit to start. I had the cinnamon roll pancakes. They were delicious, but large. I...More

Brought a tour bus of 42 people, the wait Staff was amazing. They served our group quickly and efficiently. The food was very good as well. One of the most efficient restaurants I've been to. Thanks for your great service.

I just brought two Alamo breakfast burritos home. They are big even without the tomatoes and jalapenos. Two can definitely share one and feel filled up. Not sure if I'll get it again as it was a bit over priced compared to a similar large...More

They substituted common button mushrooms for crimini mushrooms. Waitress said that's all they had & basically didn't know the difference. Spinach tasted like it had not been washed from bag. Chicken was grilled well with panko type breading. Salad dressing probably was Otts... I had...More
