Rise Biscuits Donuts Charlotte Steele Creek
This place has a great concept....huge donuts and huge biscuits. I have been there twice and had a good and not so good experience. Consistency seems to be an issue mentioned by others. I recommend going in the morning when they are busier and the food is fresher and the service is better. Their business tails off after early lunch and the food I got at 1:30 was a dry, hard re-heated biscuit that was just not good. The food I got a 11am was excellent...country ham, egg, and cheddar biscuit that was about 6 inches across! They also threw in 2 free donuts because they had a few extras...very nice touch!
I loved their donuts. A departure to your traditional donuts that's out in the market. I came to purchase some today but saw the "closed permanently" sign out front. I was shocked no less! As I was leaving, I saw a guy wearing a Rise uniform shirt and asked him if it was true. He looked really sad, as do I, but he indeed confirmed that the store is permanently closed. I hope they'll find a way to come back.
Read the other reviews and have to say I've had many more good days here than bad. When it comes together the food is amazing. Even if it wasn't quick service. Richard takes this place personally and he's usually here. If it's not right it's worth the effort to say so while they can fix it. Glad to see coffee changes coming!
Disappointing. The service was great, the cashier was friendly and the people behind the counter all smiled and acknowledged us. No complaints there. But the food was awful. I knew there would be a problem when it was ready before I had even paid. I ordered a "southern" biscuit which is chicken strips with pimento cheese on a biscuit. The chicken was as hard as a rock. The biscuit was okay and the pimento was good. My wife ordered an avacado toast with egg, lettuce and tomato. The egg was cold and clearly made at least a half hour beforehand. We were excited because we heard they have iced coffee but its just prepackaged cold coffee in a can. All in all $24 for two cold breakfast sandwhiches, a can of coffee and a coke was not what we were looking for.
The doughnuts are pretty good but it seems they are lacking flavor! Their coffee game is weak! They need to step it up because it would be a money maker if they sold premium coffee too!! Thanks for responding RISE Ill come checkout the new coffee!! Let us know when its brewing! Make it something great!
