Pine State Biscuits was started by Walt, Kevin, and Brian, three guys from North Carolina who became great friends in college -- yet each of them really missed that true Southern cooking. Pine State's golden buttermilk biscuits utilize shredded (frozen) butter and are made by folding the rolled-out dough into layers. The result...soft, buttery goodness that will rival or soundly defeat any other biscuit.

FYI, the name "Reggie" apparently came about because Brian wanted to name his son Reggie, but his wife didn't approve. Hence, we get a "Reggie" biscuit sandwich! (I got sausage gravy, as a note)

*light bulb* You know, I should eat a Reggie Deluxe while chugging hot sauce. I'm a sick, sick man.
The biscuit itself was amazing, baked perfectly and the buttery flavor unquestionably rocked the foodgasm world. Yup, I screamed "unfairly awesome!" as I ate this. Pine State Biscuits now has one more member on the "Reggie Deluxe" bandwagon.
I have yet to try the other menu items for a more complete experience, and the McIsley ($6) looks real good...fried chicken, pickles, mustard, and honey. Not sure why it took me this long to try Pine State out, but I'm so happy I did! 9/10
