The Buttered Biscuit in Sumner provides what owner Tammy Haskins refers to as "gramma food." This must be a grandmother with international tastes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner deviate from typical diner fare to include kielbasa, avocado, jalapeños, house-made salsa, feta, marinated artichoke heart, tzatziki sauce, and pepperoncinis. Charming mismatched chairs and tables, warm earth tones, and wood beams celebrate an eclectic feel; a lack of kitschy clutter keeps it from feeling like your crazy aunt's house. Fireplace seating gives The Buttered Biscuit a mountain lodge vibe in cooler weather while double doors opening onto a patio give it a villa feel on warm afternoons.

Fried green beans were a new experience. I loved having something other than the typical blah appetizers most places serve. These beans were long, lightly breaded and still tasted of green bean even after a dunk in the fryer - A+.

Rolled in a giant, fried tortilla stuffed with onion, veggies, peppers, cheese, and meat, Chris's Chupacabras should include a serious warning on the menu: "Will burn the heck out of your mouth, and you will love it anyway"  - or something similar. The skin around our lips was on fire. We kept shoveling forkfuls of spiced taco meat style ground beef and fresh jalapeño into our mouths.

The triple-decker, 4-inch tall monster of a signature Reuben is layered with provolone and Swiss, a sweet tangy Fuji apple and pineapple slaw that was surprising, tart kraut and sautéed onions, and thinly sliced quality brisket turned corn beef, how could this ingredient list be improved? Slather it with a spiced-up 1000 Island-style dressing and use an aromatic toasted rye bread, that's how. Bam, it was good.

The food is awesome but the service takes way to long. They are always under staffed which makes it a little annoying.
