West Virginia’s biscuit business icon is receiving a regional reward. Homebased in Charleston, fans of the Tudor’s Biscuit World restaurant chain have taken a country breakfast staple to award winning heights.  

Tudor’s “Mountaineer” biscuit was named “The South’s Best Biscuit” in an online poll contest held by Garden & Gun, a southern lifestyle magazine.

Garden & Gun had the public vote in a bracket-style contest to name the best biscuit among regional chains, local favorites, national chains, and gas stations. Tudor’s took 56 percent of the final vote to win the title. 

“This win was made possible by Tudor’s customers, and we truly appreciate each and every one of them,” said Ray Burke of Tudor’s. “Tudor’s has been a staple breakfast for West Virginians on the go for decades, and we want to thank them for their loyalty.”

The “Mountaineer” was the specific biscuit to win the Garden & Gun contest. It consists of country ham, potato, egg, and cheese on a made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuit.

To say thanks to voters, Tudors’ will hold a Customer Appreciation Day on Monday, April 22, by offering a Buy-One-Get-One free deal for its “Mountaineer” and “Thundering Herd” biscuits.
