Growing up in rural south Georgia, there were three sit-down restaurants in my hometown where you went to eat lunch after church on Sunday: Shoney’s, Western Sizzlin, and Cracker Barrel, which was my favorite as a child. Those biscuits…
Well, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store launched the Holler & Dash brand and opened it’s flagship restaurant in Homewood back in March 2016, and its menu revolves around its biscuits. But don’t go in expecting Cracker Barrel’s biscuits, for Holler & Dash’s menu uses this Southern staple as the base to create biscuit sandwiches full of bold flavors. And I’m a fan.
Each time I go, I try a different biscuit combination, but at this point, my personal faves include the Strawberry & Dash (whipped Creole cream cheese, strawberries, whipped cream), Kickback Chicken (fried chicken, goat cheese, green onion, sweet pepper jelly), Hollerback Club (bacon, guacamole, fried green tomato, Hollerback sauce), and the Chicken. Set. Go. (fried chicken, pimento cheese, jalapeno, sorghum). If that didn’t get your mouth watering, click here to see a complete menu. Signature biscuits run in the $5-$9 range.
Holler & Dash has recently added some new menu items, which I was excited to try. So in addition to their yummy biscuits, I also recommend the Maple & Banana Overnight Oats, which is served cold and so tasty and filling. They also have a H&D Breakfast Scramble if you need something more hearty (3 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of bacon or sausage, biscuit). Other menu items include: a Brussels sprouts bowl, parfait, avocado toast, grits bowl, beignets, fresh fruit, and tots.
Besides flavorful combinations, Holler & Dash’s use of fresh, high-quality ingredients is another reason why their food tastes so good. They’ve partnered with Springer Mountain Chicken to use antibiotic-free, steroid-free chicken that are raised on small family farms. Their pickled products come from Doux South, which uses only natural ingredients and no preservatives, and they also use grits from Anson Mills, honey from TruBee Honey, coffee from Pure Intentions Coffee, tea from Rishi Tea, and jam from the Nashville Jams.
Why name the restaurant Holler & Dash?
COO Mike Chissler explains that “holler” is a word with Southern roots that is both a thing we do and a place we go, and “dash” gets at the fast-casual concept of the restaurant as well as the fact that you add a “dash” of spices to recipes.
Because of the success of the Homewood location, Holler & Dash has already opened seven other locations across the Southeast. You can also purchase several products from the Holler & Dash stores such as their campfire coffee mugs, H&D t-shirts, Nashville Jams, Pure Intentions Coffee, and more at their stores.
So head to Holler & Dash and “have a seat and a bite to eat”!
