Top 3 Restaurants For The Best Biscuits and Gravy in Gatlinburg

No Gatlinburg vacation is complete without an authentic southern breakfast. One of the most unique and savory dishes featured in a classic Tennessee breakfast is biscuits and gravy.

Biscuits and gravy became a regional favorite after the Revolutionary War, when Americans had to make do with sparse supplies. Southerners needed a cheap, tasty meal that was hearty enough to provide energy for a hard day’s work. The resulting dish consists of a soft biscuit smothered in a gravy made from white flour, milk, and pork sausage drippings. Often times, the gravy also contains bits of bacon, ground beef, sausage or other meats.
