Biscuits Burgers & More is a fascinating, yet delicious, paradise in paradox. Owner Mike Seekins’ beefy playhouse is under the same roof as C & J’s Supermarket, which looks more like a quick stop gas station.

Don’t let the unassuming facade or Seekins’ gentle southern patois fool you. He is a shrewd man who has been in the food business a long time and can cook the meanest of patties.

The GOOD:

Biscuits

Justin and I crossed the Jones County line and made our way to the cash register at a little after 2 p.m. These cathead biscuits, named for their size, weren’t a fresh batch, but they were still the smoothest and fluffiest I’d ever had — as opposed to the typical dry and crumbling disappointments others serve. For a second, I almost thought they were big dinner rolls. Justin got a pork chop biscuit while I got the steak. But we both were pleased.

Burgers:

I got the basic double cheeseburger with bacon, and Justin got the Dickey Betts — a monster mound of blackened beef, blue cheese, mushrooms and bacon. The burgers were cooked a little longer than I normally eat them, but I couldn’t complain. The Dickey Betts threw my taste buds a wild party. The tart of the blue cheese with the power of the spices battled. I’m not a fan of blue cheese, but I wish I ordered this.

Service:

Seekins knows how to make his customers feel at home. We talked about the framed Allman Brothers posters all over the walls near the entrance and Georgia football. Not only is Seekins a master chef but the former football standout is a Bulldog whiz. Ask him anything.

The QUESTIONABLE:

Fries:

They weren’t terrible, but they weren’t anything to call home about. They were well battered, but there just wasn’t much taste. They were crispy yet underwhelming.

The BAD:

There wasn’t anything bad about our experience. The inside is a little small, but that’s not a deal breaker.

Rating:

Nick: 3.5/5

Justin: 3.5/5

Location: 3497 Millerfield Rd, Macon, GA 31211

Hours:

M-F: 6 a.m.-2 p.m., Sat.: 7-11 a.m.
