Holler & Dash Biscuit House

Holler & Dash Biscuit House, the Southern-inspired breakfast and lunch restaurant developed by the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store chain, opened its second location late this summer in Tuscaloosa.  Holler & Dash launched its brand and opened its first restaurant this past March in Homewood, AL. The Tuscaloosa location is at 1130 University Blvd., near the University of Alabama campus. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Holler & Dash’s Southern-inspired menu features a selection of made-from-scratch biscuit sandwiches, which are topped and loaded with everything from fried chicken and pimento cheese to bacon, guacamole and fried green tomatoes.
