I am a fan of breakfast food at any time of the day. You might find me chowing down at Lincoln Square Pancake House during dinner hours or making midnight runs to IHOP. However, for the past couple of weeks, I have been on a Mexican food kick. I can’t get enough of stuffed burritos smothered in cheese or the melody of flavors present in a good enchilada. When I found out that there was a restaurant that serves both Mexican food and my breakfast favorites, I realized I no longer had to split my love and affection between the two. Thus, my polyamorous relationship between biscuits and burritos begun.
Nestled in a small Broad Ripple strip mall, Biscuits looked unassuming on the outside. But we all know that, in love and food, what’s on the inside matters a lot. When I walked in during Sunday brunch hours, the eatery was packed to capacity and I realized I may have found a hidden gem.
Biscuits serves a mix of traditional American breakfast foods such as pancakes, waffles, breakfast sandwiches and biscuits in addition to Mexican breakfast burritos, quesadillas and Chilaquiles. They have a variety of affordable lunch and dinner options as well, including burritos, burgers and steak. There is a large selection of soft drinks, beer and wine that can be ordered with your dinner.
My husband tried the French Toast. At first, I assumed it would be pretty basic as far as food options go, but I was pleasantly surprised. The four large slices of toast, which cost only $5, were covered in powdered sugar, chocolate sauce and chocolate chips. It looked so delicious that I had to try it as well, and it was love at first bite. For my own meal, I tried the Biscuits Burrito with chicken as my meat option because I wanted to try the establishments namesake. It came stuffed with veggies and smothered in queso, and it was so filling I had to grab a to go box on my way out. What’s more, I only paid $10 for this dinner item.
In addition to providing delicious and affordable food, I enjoyed the décor inside of the restaurant. The walks were lined with funny “Mexican problems,” some of which were surprisingly relatable to me even though I have no known Hispanic DNA.
All in all, I enjoyed brunch at Biscuits and will likely make my way back soon to sample more items from its eclectic menu.
Biscuits is located at 1035 Broad Ripple Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220. Pay them a visit and see if you fall in love as well.
