When Ashleigh and Drew Shader, owners of the original Atomic Cowboy on Colfax Avenue, decided that Denver deserved a true Southern breakfast, they outfitted a food truck to deliver it. But before the Biscuit Bus got on the road, they used the bar's kitchen to test out recipes, opening at 8 a.m. and serving a menu of biscuits and gravy to breakfast-goers and hangover-cure seekers. The impromptu breakfast bar was such a hit that even after the truck got rolling, keeping the brick-and-mortar breakfast establishment was a no-brainer. Dubbed the Denver Biscuit Company, it has expanded to Aurora and beyond. Fat Sully's pizza is still served to the bar crowd from lunch until late into the night, so this sibling of the OG Atomic Cowboy has just about all of your food needs covered, 24/7.
