This October, 1 Jack's Southern Comfort Food should open up on Lower Greenville Avenue, provided permits and all those other things that keeps restaurants from opening when they say they will go through.

A new release about the opening uses the word "biscuit" an unprecedented 22 times, in case you're having a hard time figuring out what kind of food they'll offer. Scott Jones, the man behind Cowtown Diner and the recently closed Screen Door is working on the new project, which promises to add inches to your waistline three biscuits at a time.

Don't believe me? Here's just one paragraph...

And the biscuits -- Lord Almighty, the biscuits! Jones' artisan biscuit recipe is used for breakfast signatures like Cinnamon Biscuits, signature buttery buttermilk biscuits rolled with cinnamon, brown sugar, toasted walnuts and pecans, baked to perfection and slathered with a buttermilk glaze; Sticky Biscuits, signature Cinnamon Biscuits, baked in a maple butter goo with toasted walnuts and pecans; and even Dessert Biscuits (have them with a glass of wine? Absolutely!)

That's what it says I swear -- cinnamon biscuits, everywhere.

The restaurant will open at 1905 Greenville Ave., and they have a handy website without a single picture of a biscuit right here.
