Founded in 2006 at the Portland Farmers Market,Pine State Biscuitsopens its storefront location for breakfast or lunch, seven days a week, rain or shine.
Now, at first glance, it's not plainly obvious that it should be labeled as just a sandwich shop, especially when the culinary offerings are not served up between a freshly baked kaiser roll, a ciabatta roll, or even a simple baguette. Heck, the words "do you want white, wheat, or rye" isn't even among the employees' vocabulary. I mean, we're talkin' about biscuits here, right? But once you get a look at the Reggie with its crispy bacon, oozing cheese, and a perfectly fried piece of chicken smothered nicely by a warm blanket of gravy, you forget that these ingredients are stuffed between a biscuit bigger than a hockey puck ... Next thing you know, you're thinking, "Oh yeah, that's a sandwich!!!" And if you have time and room for it, be sure to check out the Regina, the Moneyball, and the Wedgie.
