About BIG MOUTH BISCUITS (as told by Travis):
I moved to Indy from Dallas Texas and was looking for a cool biscuit sandwich place to get acquainted with. Didn’t find one so I decided to start one of my own. We launched 28 days later on April Fools Day thanks to Indy’s Kitchen, a shared kitchen incubator. I built the menu based off of my favorites from the many places I have traveled and took inspiration from family and friends to create the perfect breakfast sandwich joint. I met Clint Rollins on a separate business venture, and I instantly knew I needed him to be my Mayor of Biscuit Town. He is in charge of customer service and meeting all the great folks of Big Mouth Biscuits, aka Biscuit Town.
Big Mouth Biscuits serves Breakfast and lunch hours Monday thru Thursday 9am -12 pm and Fri, Sat, Sun – 7am to 2:30pm. We bake our biscuits fresh every few hours!
Come check us out at the intersection of 25th and Central and get a picture with the Mayor of Biscuit Town. New location soon at City Market.

Blueberry Lemon Pancake Muffins
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 3½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1¼ cups milk
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 6 oz. container fresh blueberries
- Zest of 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and whisk together. Add milk, egg, melted butter, and lemon zest. Stir with a whisk until just combined. Gently fold in blueberries. Generously spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or use liners. Fill each tin ¾ of the way full (I like to use an ice cream scooper so each of my pancakes are the same size). Bake for 14-15 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted, comes out clean.
**Have fun and make this recipe your own by adding whatever add-ins you like! You could add different fruit, pure maple syrup and sausage, or chocolate chips to name a few.
