Fast Food Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches Ranked Worst To Best

Tired of wasting your money on fast food biscuit breakfast sandwiches that taste mediocre at best? Join the club. While most of us agree that dressing up biscuit halves with amazing fillings before unashamedly devouring them is a splendid way to start the day, it isn't so great when said biscuit sandwiches fail to live up to our standards. From dry and unpalatable textures to lack of presentation and flavor, biscuit sandwiches have a multitude of ways to potentially ruin your day. But don't worry; we've set out to stop that from happening.

In this post, we're getting specific about which fast food biscuit sandwiches are worth your bite and which you should sidestep. By investigating some of the most popular grabs sold by fast food chains and rated by people like you, we've been able to determine which places are dishing up the goods in the biscuit department. Lucky for you, we're ready and willing to share what we've found!

All right, enough of the chitchat. Let's get on to exploring the wonderful world of fast food breakfast biscuit sandwiches, ranked from worst to best.

14. Hardee's Omelet Biscuit

Hardee's is known for doling out satisfying fast food fare that's good for helping the hungry leave full. That's why we were initially thrilled to see the brand dishing up its Loaded Omelet Biscuit that's stuffed with heavenly omelet flavors for famished fans to enjoy.

According to Hardee's, the Loaded Omelet Biscuit features everything you love about omelets but in sandwich form. Filled with ham, bacon, and shredded sausage pieces, this breakfast sandwich had us approaching it with nothing but confidence. But does it measure up?

Sadly, it doesn't. While the sandwich itself tastes pretty decent, breakfast fans can't help but feel cheated when they compare what's advertised on the menu to what they actually acquire. The made-from-scratch biscuit get-up is often only filled with sporadic clumps of meat and a messy serving of unfolded egg. Because of the sandwich's presentation, consumer opinion concerning this item has been so low that we sadly had to rank this one as the least alluring fast food biscuit on the market. Hey, at least it's creative; we'll give it an "A" for effort.

13. Krystal Donut-Glazed Chik Biscuit

You know how some menu items sound like a good idea, but once you start chewing, it's a totally different story? That's how some folks seem to feel about Krystal's Donut-Glazed Chik Biscuit. Described as having a burly slab of deep-fried chicken buried between two biscuit layers and drizzled with sweet glazed donut frosting, you'd think you'd be headed for serious flavor territory when opting for this promising grab. Unfortunately, this breakfast biscuit isn't quite what it seems, even despite our highest hopes.

Krystal's Donut-Glazed Chik Biscuit sets customers up to believe they'll get the dynamic impact of marrying fried chicken and sugary sweet donuts together. What's more true is that the sandwich tastes like a regular chicken biscuit with only a hint of sugar stashed somewhere in the mix. Despite the fact that it's topped in milky white icing drizzle, this sandwich somehow doesn't quite capture the donut vibe that many are looking forward to. Instead, the biscuit comes off dry and seems to absorb too much of the frosting to offer any notable sweetness. Nevertheless, the savory flavor of the chicken is pleasant, though some have left wondering if this isn't simply a basic Krystal Chik Biscuit with a few dribbles of icing thrown on top. Beats us.

12. Wendy's Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit

Wendy's Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit features crispy brown chicken candied in maple honey butter sauce and squished between two yummy biscuits before it is wrapped and served. Biscuity chicken sandwiches seem to be on trend in the breakfast arena, especially among restaurants that are already geared toward fried chicken eats or who maintain a Southern client base. Because of this, we were surprised to find that this Dave Thomas-owned burger joint had enough guts to present its own version of this Southern breakfast classic, and we wondered how its rendition would stand up to the challenge.

The results? All in all, most haven't been let down when it comes to the flavor of this unexpected offering at Wendy's. The biscuit is moist and tender, and the chicken proves well-seasoned, with plenty of thickness to accompany every mouth-watering bite.

The only conundrum concerning this sweetly tempting chicken biscuit is the name chosen for it. A "honey butter" chicken biscuit would suggest that the flavor would be naturally rich in honey. But, instead, Wendy's Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is actually coated in a "maple" honey spread, with the honey taking a backseat to the robust maple flavor. Don't get us wrong here; both honey and maple taste amazing atop a pillowy morning biscuit. But given the name of the sandwich, some feel a bit taken back by the lack of honey savor, mainly given the fact that there's "honey" included in the biscuit name.

11. Bojangles Cajun Chicken Filet Biscuit

If you're yearning for an early feast that packs a bit of heat and plenty of delicious flavors, Bojangles Cajun Chicken Filet Biscuit might just be the pick for you. This popular fast food chain specializes in familiar Southern food, with its fried chicken and biscuit selections frequently weighing in as most popular. Naturally, we'd assume that Bojangles would outdo itself in terms of contributing a chicken biscuit that everyone could enjoy. Thankfully, we weren't wrong!

The Bojangles Cajun Chicken Filet Biscuit is one of the tastier chicken biscuits out there, especially given the flavorful heat that chicken brings when layered against the buttery backdrop of the company's fresh-baked biscuits. If there was anything negative to say, it might be that the chicken comes off dehydrated at times, but honestly, it isn't anything that a slathering of Bojangles' pimento cheese can't handle. In fact, this is the way many choose to enjoy the company's chicken filet, as the velvety pimento cheese adds yet another layer of traditional Southern comfort that reckons to send this chicken biscuit up and over the edge.

10. Bojangles Steak Biscuit

Comin' in at No.10 on our list is yet another Bojangles' banger for your early morning appetite. The Bojangles Steak Biscuit is a bit of an atypical breakfast sandwich option, but it is incredibly tasty nonetheless. Lovers of fried steak will swoon for this meaty combo as a quick, easy, and reliable choice on the go. At first blush, this steak biscuit appears to be a simple slab of meat stacked against a mediocre biscuit and offered up as a unique yet somewhat boring breakfast option.

Fortunately, despite its seemingly mundane appearance, this steak biscuit does well to stimulate taste buds. While Bojangles' biscuits rarely disappoint, believe it or not, it is the flavor of the steak that steals the show on this one. It's hearty and flavorful, making it the pick-me-up for ravenous carnivores in need of something meaty to start their day.

The defect we can detect is that though the steak biscuit tastes plenty good to most, some may be underwhelmed by the simplicity of this Southern biscuit. For those wishing for a bit more pizazz, try requesting that your steak biscuit include egg and cheese. For even more wow, ask employees to ladle an abundance of pimento cheese on top. Don't worry; you can thank us later.

9. McDonald's Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

Got a hankerin' for bacon? Mmmm, we do too. While sausage fans will undoubtedly hate us here, there's something to be said for thin salty layers of pork that provide a scrumptious yet distinctive alternative to the usual sausage patty.

We gotta say, McDonald's Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit really steps up to the plate, and we're pleasantly surprised. The biscuit itself is moist and delicate, though it does tend to crumble when you sink your teeth into it. The flavor is there, with different layers of the sandwich working seamlessly to provide satisfaction to eager tongues.

Nevertheless, if there's one negative thing we'd mention about this bacon biscuit grab, it's the modest bacon portions. Now, this isn't entirely McDonald's fault. When compared to thickset sausage rounds, bacon is naturally thinner and, thus, may get bulldozed when stacked against hefty portions of egg and cheese. Still, it's nice to at least be able to taste bacon on a sandwich, and while the flavor is still there, it left us wanting a little more. Having said that, this breakfast biscuit tastes well enough to keep it from bottoming out at the lower end of our list. We'll take it!

8. McDonald's Sausage Biscuit With Egg

McDonald's Sausage Biscuit With Egg is a welcome change to the ever-popular Egg McMuffin, and when compared to other breakfast biscuit offerings, we're happy to announce that it doesn't disappoint!

McDonald's Sausage Biscuit with Egg comes in as a straightforward yet satiating breakfast option, making it an easy grab when you're on the run. McDonald's sausage, in general, tends to get us salivating over its spicy and savory umami flavor, but blanketed between two flaky biscuits halves yields a flavor combination perfectly matched.

Despite this incredible first impression, we will mention that the egg on the sandwich may not add much in terms of taste to the biscuit as a whole. Nevertheless, the egg does well to impart moisture to the biscuit, especially if you beg employees to add a slice of melty cheese to it. Overall, this is a plain but solid pick from our friends at Micky D's. Pair it up with crispy hash browns, and voila. You've got an awesome start to your day.

7. Wendy's Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

We're only halfway through our list, but it's at this point that things start to get really tasty. Starting with Wendy's Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit, we were elated to discover most people singing the praises of this unsuspecting breakfast biscuit champ. It starts with the rich and savory flavor of sausage coupled with warm and salty biscuits to deliver a meal almost more comforting than the sammie your mama makes you at home.

Speaking of Wendy's biscuits, some reviewers claim it to be their favorite Wendy's bread, as it perfectly emulates everything you'd want in a breakfast biscuit despite the fact that you grabbed it from a drive-thru. On top of that, many love the fact that the biscuit can withstand the weight of the inner contents of the sandwich, something that isn't often said of fast food biscuits.

So, do we recommend the Wendy's Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit? Heck yeah, we do. This is another simple but delectable option to tickle your taste buds before embarking upon the daily hustle.

6. Burger King Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

Coming in slightly ahead of our Wendy's favorite, the Burger King Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit left us in wonder. For those of you who just can't get enough classic breakfast flavor, Burger King comes touting an astonishingly good rendition of this ever-loved fast food breakfast staple, and we couldn't be more in love.

So, what is there about the Burger King Sausage Egg, and Cheese Biscuit that we love so much? From the egg all the way down to the biscuit, this delicious sandwich lends itself to fresh-tasting flavors that work like magic. Reviewers concur that this is one of the better choices not only on the Burger King breakfast menu but also in the world of fast food biscuit sandwiches in general.

Thus, if you're looking for something quick, tasty, and inexpensive to line your stomach before the start of your week, Burger King's Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit proves a flaky and tender way to make it happen.

5. Carl's Jr. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

Three sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits in a row? What can we say? We've got a thing for classics. Carl's Jr. is yet another fast food chain to flesh out this commonplace yet delectable sandwich exceptionally well. Expect Carl's Jr. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit to come stacked with neatly tucked eggs, sizzling sausage, cheese, and a nostalgically tender buttermilk biscuit.

The cons? Though this Carl's Jr. front-runner is absolutely amazing, compared to the Breakfast Burger sold by the same company, it might seem rather minuscule. Nevertheless, if you aren't a fan of making a mess or don't want the hassle of struggling with too many toppings, you can count on Carl's Jr.'s Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit to satisfy your cravings in a way that's unapologetically basic. Oh, and don't forget to order a hand-scooped ice cream shake to go with it. What? It's part of the breakfast menu!

4. Chick-fil-A Bacon, Egg, Cheese Biscuit

Comin' in as our third favorite of the bunch, the Chick-fil-A Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit may be one of the most unexpected contenders reviewed thus far. Coming from a restaurant that prides itself almost exclusively on breaded chicken, you'd think that anything else the restaurant would offer might be subpar at best!

Believe it or not, the Chick-fil-A Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit is anything but. This sandwich is loaded with applewood bacon, tender eggs, and a light biscuit to top things off. Reviewers describe the biscuit itself as tasting buttery and flavorful, proving a great pair-up with savory eggs. As for the bacon, it delivers mostly chew but has hints of crispiness here and there with flavor still excellent enough to make it worth the purchase.

Despite the tastiness of the sandwich, some out there may find this pick a little too salty. Our response? When it comes to breakfast biscuits, saltiness is often the name of the game. While we agree that sodium in excess is a major turn-off, this sandwich, though a little on the briny side, is still deserving of a try.

3. Burger King Fully Loaded Buttermilk Biscuit

Ham, bacon, and sausage all lumped together on one tenderly delicate fresh-baked biscuit? Mmmm, sign us up. Burger King's Fully Loaded Buttermilk Biscuit lands itself a lofty spot on our list of great breakfast biscuits, mainly because of what all it entails. After all, who can argue with corralling all of America's most treasured breakfast meats and expertly alternating them between fresh eggs, gooey cheese, and hot buttered biscuits. Really?

Not only this, but BK fans brave enough to give this gut buster a go give it the thumbs up, too. Having said that, we'll admit that there is a time and place for a breakfast banger this big. You may not wake up every morning feeling ravenous enough to stuff your face full of this monster, but hey, it's there when you need it. Also, it's important to note that because there are so many layers of cured meat on this one, not everyone will appreciate its texture, and you'll undoubtedly need a gallon of water or two to combat your thirst after your binge; consider yourself warned.

Still, if you're running on an empty stomach and need something filling before you squeeze your vehicle into early rush-hour traffic, this one will prove a satisfying, safe bet.

2. Carl's Jr. Monster Biscuit

If you've got a fondness for variety and are in need of a deluxe-style biscuit option, you may wish to sample the Carl's Jr. Monster Biscuit the next time you hit up the drive thru. Much like Burger King's Fully Loaded Biscuit sammie, this selection is packed full of sausage, bacon, cheese, and egg. Yes, we understand that the ham is missing. However, there's plenty of other good things about this biscuit that are sure to make up for the loss.

One of the things we respect most about the Monster Biscuit is its devotion to cheesiness. And not just any cheesiness, mind you. We're talkin' the ooey, gooey kind. Upon reading the description on the Carl's Jr. website, it's no wonder why. Unlike other breakfast biscuits we've scrutinized, this sandwich features not one cheese type but two, layering molten Swiss with American cheese for a flavor mashup we simply can't resist!

1. Chick-fil-A Chicken, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit

You read it here, folks. Chick-fil-A reigns supreme as our top pick for the best breakfast biscuit on the market. If you've ever taken a bite out of the company's Chicken, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit, you likely already know why this unique take on the traditional breakfast biscuit brings us more joy than you could ever imagine.

According to Chick-fil-A, this all-star chicken sandwich starts with fresh buttermilk biscuits that are topped with luscious egg, classic American cheese, and a boneless chicken breast that's been pressure cooked in heart-healthy refined peanut oil. The result is a rapturous daybreak bite that is much deserving of your coin and a trip to the drive-thru on repeat. Just sayin'.

Reviewers agree, it tastes amazing with hot eggs, cheese, and crunchy chicken as the epitome of a great way to kick off your day. Don't believe us? Give it a go. We trust you'll love it ... it really is that good.
