Great local food. Unique menu. Friend green tomato biscuit with pimento is incredible!

Been going here since it first opened. Their donuts are good, but I really go for the biscuits (bacon, egg, cheese) which are truly amazing.
I do like the outdoor seating...kinda wish they had more space on the inside for those rainy days.
Also, the key to survival is do not go on Saturday or Sunday morning :) By that, I mean, the lines can be crazy, I would avoid going there between 8-10am on those days if you can resist.

The staff at this place are amazing! Tama in particular is absolutely awesome! Always knows what the customers want and thinks ahead! A real team player with a great attitude and smile! Five stars to all the great people there!

Exceeded my expectations! We had the chicken biscuit, the tree hugger, and an applewood bacon. My husband put jelly on his egg, bacon, and cheese, for which I condemned him, but I stand corrected. Adding jelly somehow worked... like Joey "custard, good. Jam, good. Beef, good!"

Seriously the best fried chicken biscuit! I added a fried green tomato...it was amazing with the bacon and pimento cheese!
They were super busy, which is typical for all the rise locations. The only thing that was disappointing is they seem to have less donuts than they used to. I know all the locations are a little different and sell accordingly. But it won't deter me from returning.
I do want to try the cheddar biscuit the next time...how amazing would that be!

Biscuits are bigger than I thought they would be and they are good. My only complaint is that they didn’t put sauce in any of my biscuits. I ordered a few spicy chicken biscuits and it says it comes with sauce.. tasted dry without any sauce. I didn’t realize until I got home. This is my first visit too.

They're not making donuts any longer and changing their name to reflect that. Rise Biscuits and Righteous Chicken.

Best donuts and general breakfast fare in the area. A repeat favorite, glad I live just down the street!
UPDATE: This place has mostly gone to s**t. They stopped selling their donuts...we had only ever gone there for breakfast or brunch and have literally 0 interest in coming back. Lowering rating to 3 stars.

I am writing this while stuffing my face in my car but the workers here are amazing especially after the confusion this morning due to my online order. Long story short my online order did not go through, but the payment definitely did. They were so nice and understanding and prepared the order when I went in and I feel so thankful and awkward for making them go through that. The food is yummy, thank you guys again!

I flew in town for MLK weekend and told my friends I solely wanted to eat food found in NC, since it is my first time. This food was nothing short of amazing and despite them not having the donuts I ordered and purchased they offered me a substitute(I ended up getting cinnamon rolls, they didn't seem to keen on issuing a refund so I tried to be as simple as can be). I am sure, the donuts would've sealed the deal. However, the cheddar tots and Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit did the job. (Small suggestion for people not from around there: when filling out your order on the ipads, you can only pay with card. No cash)

I remember the glory days or RISE - a glass case of unique and delicious donuts, warm biscuits with melted cheese, the smell of hot coffee, and a friendly stuff literally flinging your order at you (I mean that as a compliment - it was fast). I went visited the SODU location for the first time in a while recently and was pretty disappointed. They seem to have pivoted towards boxed chicken meals. The donuts were out, even though they were on the menu and it was before noon. The one guy who was taking orders looked like he'd rather be anywhere else and acted like it too. The coffee was out. I ordered my old standby - bacon egg and cheese and threw in some tater tot things. Both were really tasty! so I'm glad they still got that going for them. I just wish I didn't have to wait 15-20 minutes for them. Seems like their vision is to become a fancy BoJangles. Do we really need another chicken place?

I love this place!!!!! They have a new menu as of March 2019 but most of the items are the same the name has just changed.
I love it! Come here all the time. If you are looking for a delicious biscuit, RISE is the place!

Love both the sweet and savory options but it can be busy at times so you might have a wait. Highly recommend the creme brulee donut!

We get rise about once a month since we live nearby. When they are on it, the biscuits are amazing and huge and perfectly cooked and the chicken is fantastic. But when they are not on it, they have forgotten toppings, chicken has been cold, etc. I wish they were more consistent. They still do a good job of changing up the menu and just launched a new menu about a month or so ago. Overall would recommend.
