Listen, biscuits are basically the perfect food. Buttery, fluffy, hearty, and supremely customizable, you can enjoy them as a sweet treat warmed up with honey and butter, or savory with fried chicken, gravy, or as a sandwich. Here’s where to celebrate these fluffy rounds (or squares) of heaven on National Biscuit Day (May 14) or any day.
