BATTLE OF THE BISCUITS
Lexington asked for biscuits, and lo, there were biscuits. Our Biscuit Battle just got interesting. In 2020, Tudor’s Biscuit World opened in our neighborhood, promptly creating lines that stretched out to New Circle Road. Biscuit World is a family-owned, fast-food chain specializing in scratch made biscuits and breakfast foods.
A restaurant chain based in Huntington, W.V., Tudor’s Biscuit World found its way to Lexington by way of family. Sam Creviston opened the new location with his wife, Kristin Tudor Creviston, and her brother, Patrick Tudor. “That’s the thing about our biscuits,” says Creviston. “Where you might want to eat one and a half to two at most places, one here is going to fill you up.”
On a cold wintry February day, Biscuit Belly recently joined the fray, opening in the former A and W location on Main Street (for a Hamburg short cut: take Winchester Road all the way down to Walton and go left over the railroad tracks. When Walton ends at Main Street’s traffic light, you have reached your biscuit destination).
The Louisville-based franchise was immediately so popular with Lexington’s biscuit-starved mob, they had to temporarily close when they ran out of product.
Hall’s on the River suffered a devastating flood this time last year (as if COVID didn’t make restaurant life hard enough), but is expected to return after a massive renovation.
If rumors are to be believed, Chicken Salad Chick will add a Hamburg location later this year.
