SOUTHERN CLASSICS MADE-TO-ORDER. FRESH & NATURAL INGREDIENTS. DRIVE THRU OR DINE IN.
Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. premiers its breakout restaurant as a drive thru and roadside kitchenette in Northeast D.C., serving biscuits and fried chicken by Chef Jason Gehring
Mason Dixie continues to garner attention on a national level, with accolades from Food Network Magazine, Garden & Gun, Martha Stewart Living, and more. Chef Jason Gehring spent the last two and a half years refining the menu for the fresh-fast concept through Mason Dixie’s stint at Union Market and various pop-ups throughout Washington, D.C.
A nostalgic throw-back to a vintage roadside kitchenette, Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.’s Drive Thru is a fresh-fast restaurant focusing on hearty biscuit sandwiches, juicy fried chicken, and creamy frozen “Cultshakes” by DC’s premier ice creamery, Milk Cult. Mason Dixie serves versions of these delicious Southern roadside classics made-to- order, using fresh, preservative-free, hormone-free, and high quality local ingredients with heart-warming Southern hospitality.
Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. offers diners a casual, family-friendly environment and delicious, affordable comfort food prepared and served by a team that turns customers into regulars and regulars into family.
