Looks like everyone wants to get comfy...
Homegrown, nestled between overgrown lots and a body shop, doesn’t look like a place for a superior breakfast. Neither does their trademark comfy biscuit, a messy, chaotic jumble of fried chicken and sausage gravy, garnished with an ironically thin orange slice. And yet, this is the dish that helped earn the diner city-wide acclaim.“It’s just simple Southern food,” says Kevin Clark, chef and owner of Homegrown. “It’s comforting. It feels like you’re at your grandmother’s house.”

Home Grown (address and info)
Other than Outkast, Georgia's greatest export to the rest of the country is undoubtedly the chicken biscuit. Combining two great sources of Southern pride into one flaky, battery protein hand grenade isn't rocket science, but it does explode taste buds unlike any other Southern staple. If we were judging biscuits alone, Silver Skillet might get the nod (we're suckers for grandmothers' recipes), but the total package is at Home Grown, whose massive buttermilk-brined chicken breasts sprawl onto a bed of biscuit, then get drowned in sausage gravy that tastes just as good as it looks.
What you’re getting: The Comfy Chicken Biscuit
This biscuit is as close to being made completely out of butter as is scientifically possible. On top is a locally farmed piece of fried chicken that's gleefully drowning in sausage gravy. Pro tip: snag a spot at the counter for frequent coffee refills.
