It feels like a plate of homemade food from your grandmother (if she is/was an amazing cook). The daily special lunches can lift your spirits! I've been a loyal customer since they opened. I almost always use the drive-thru which so many places with "real food" don't have. Wonderful family business! YUMMY!!

I'd read positive reviews here and read good comments elsewhere, and since we love a good biscuit, decided to drive a distance to check it out. We've had a lot of biscuits in our day but were very disappointed in these. Yes, they are large, but they are flattened and had the texture of a leftover biscuit which had been microwaved. I'm trusting these were fresh and that wasn't the case, but they still had that texture. Where was the slightly crispy outside and the fluffy inside? Due to the large, flattened nature, the biscuit has a large surface area with very little interior. My son had a chicken biscuit (he is the chicken expert) and was very disappointed in the chicken as well. The place was busy, even at 10:15 on a weekday, which had given us high hopes. All this talk of comparing it to home cookin' makes us realize that evidently not everyone's Mama was a good cook!

Fagan's biscuits are good; the kind you might make from scratch at home. The prices are a little high, but we've been spoiled by discount fast food chains. Great service, good food, so-so value.

This place took me by surprise; I thought it was a lil' ol' grease pit-kinda place when I drove by and one day I stopped for lunch. It's very nice inside, like anything you'd see in downtown Atlanta as a lunchtime place. The real treat, though, is the food. They have hot-lunch specials everyday and the first time we went on a Tuesday, it was chicken pie, mac n' cheese, lima beans and a biscuit for $6 and change. And it was just incredible, with white meat chicken ONLY and a flaky crust and lots of melt-in-your-mouth gravy. The mac n' cheese and limas were just like my Mamaw used to make and the biscuits are heavenly and buttery. We went back today and it was pork roast, blackeyed peas and cabbage with biscuits and for dessert (which was extra), we had Strawberry Cobbler. MAN----the roast was two huge slices and tender, with lots of good gravy and the peas were cooked just right. I could eat here every single day.
