Biscuits and gravy: a simple feast. We could make the dish ourselves, but sometimes the best part of comfort food is letting someone else prepare it. Just for you, we put on our stretchy pants and found 10 of the best biscuit and gravy pairings in Phoenix.
Lux The Central Phoenix coffee shop that buzzes at just about all hours serves biscuits and gravy from 7 to 11 a.m. during the week and until 3 p.m. on weekends. The best part of Lux's rendition? We can choose between sausage and chorizo. The latter gives the morning a little Southwestern kick and we dig it.
Butters Pancakes & Café Located in Scottsdale, Butters is known for its pancakes, but don't skip its rendition of biscuits and gravy. Two biscuits are served with a light white gravy that doesn't make us feel bad for indulging. The dish is offered as a side as well, so if we're dying for a pancake, we can do both.
Ollie Vaughn's Ollie Vaughn's is a cute CenPho cafe and bakery that serves sandwiches, salads, and breakfast all day. Owner Lindsay Magee doesn't short on the adorableness when it comes to serving up a biscuit in a white ramekin resting in a light sausage gravy that we savored.
Vovomeena Picture two buttermilk biscuits covered in a white gravy with large chunks of sausage and two scrambled eggs on top. This is how Vovomeena does it, but the eggs can be done in any style. At first we weren't sure about eggs in gravy, but now we may have a new favorite guilty pleasure.
Scramble Sometimes on Saturday and Sunday mornings, we just want to order breakfast, sit down and not have to chitchat with a server while we coax our hangover away. These days are perfect for venturing to Scramble in either Phoenix or Scottsdale for the cure. Order at the counter and be fed in a short amount of time. Here, the B&G come accompanied by crispy hash browns.
Over Easy Over Easy's version of biscuits and gravy consists of jalapeño cheddar biscuits smothered with a white gravy complete with sausage, bacon and link sausage. We were left scraping our plate hoping more would magically appear. Get your fix in Arcadia, Scottsdale, Gilbert, or Mesa any day of the week.
Welcome Diner Breakfast at night kind of person? Lucky for Phoenix, Welcome Diner serves biscuits and gravy whenever they are open. This thick biscuit is drowned in steaming sausage gravy with an option to add two eggs any style for an additional $2.50. Let's be honest, around 2 a.m. (and after a couple cocktails) the biscuits start to taste real good.
Southern Rail Southern Rail's brunch is on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. That's when their spicy biscuits and gravy are offered. Imagine tasso, which is like beef jerky cut into small pieces, and a spicy gravy that has Crystal Hot Sauce in it which is just the kick we need on a weekend morning.
Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles Just like every other dish at Lo-Lo's, when the dish(es) hit the table, we begin to question if we are really up for the challenge. This trip, two huge biscuits coated with a thick white sausage gravy landed on the table alongside two scrambled eggs and crisp breakfast potatoes. We left no part of this breakfast trio behind.

Ranch House Grille When we don't feel like hitting up one of the many hip restaurants of Phoenix and would rather sit at a traditional breakfast spot, we head to Ranch House Grille. The simple atmosphere and menu make us feel right at home. This plate of biscuits comes with two large biscuits topped with brown gravy, two sausage patties, and two eggs any style with a side of potatoes.
