If sharing food makes for great memories, then sharing biscuits makes the greatest of all memories! Delta Biscuit Co. food truck in Bentonville is a fine place to start.
I’ve had it on my bucket list since Delta Biscuit Co. parked its mint green and white food truck next to Airship Coffee’s flagship store. Have you eaten here yet? They are open for breakfast and lunch on Wednesday through Sunday, so you can put in an order to-go while you walk next door for coffee.
Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration… yet barely. The Delta Biscuit Co. biscuits are homemade buttermilk biscuits made in-house by owner Hayne Begley. At 4.5”, their biscuits are as big as my hand!
Owner and cook Hayne Begley grew up in Bald Knob. The town’s motto, “Where the Ozarks meet the Delta,” also describes his life. Hayne’s dad is from the Harrison corridor, and his mom’s side is from Turkey Scratch, just outside Helena.
With one part of his life from the Ozarks and another from the Delta, naming his food truck Delta Biscuit Co. had a nice ring to it, and it stuck.
Hayne says it best, “The whole reason I started this was to create an incredible experience around food out of limited space. I think I have one of the best biscuits you can find anywhere!”
He speaks the truth!
The most popular biscuit is the Thug Nasty, with fried chicken, bacon, egg and sausage gravy. If you’re not into bacon and sausage, you won’t go wrong asking them to keep it simple because these biscuit sandwiches are anything but simple!
I went with Dr. Jones, a biscuit with in-house fried chicken (my happy place) and pimento cheese. It also comes with bacon jam, which I skipped. This HUUGGEE biscuit sandwich is layered with pure delight! Fried chicken is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, the pimento cheese is always a happy childhood memory for me, and the biscuits are insane-o.
If you go online and check out the menu, be forewarned that it’s limited on the site for a reason since they only post the items that are for ordering to-go. If you go to the food truck, you will be treated to extra menu items, including chicken sandwiches on a Kings Hawaiian bun.
Here’s a kid-friendly treat you’ve got to try for the kid in you – French Toast Sticks! They turn the leftover biscuits into baked French Toast, cut them into sticks and roll them into cornflakes, popping them in the fryer. They were served with one-hundred-percent real maple syrup.
A quick side note Delta Biscuit Co. also does catered items for private events or special orders. Email them through the website or Facebook message.
Yes, we can still be friends. And yes, there’s plenty for you to enjoy! Delta Biscuit Co. has “Biscuit Optional” choices, basically breakfast plates.
I recommend the Hash Gordon, a tri-potato medley with onions, peppers and roasted seasonal veggies topped with a runny egg and Hoff Sauce (a smoky Cholula sauce). The roasted seasonal vegetables depend on what’s at the market. It was sweet potatoes, baby portabellas, and broccoli through the winter. Summertime brings more squash to the mix.
Delta Biscuit Co. has a good mix of regulars who pop by on weekdays and weekends. It’s common for bikers on the weekend to go out for a ride, grab a coffee at Airship next door and then meet with friends for a biscuit-inspired breakfast.
Whether meeting friends halfway during a mountain bike ride, making it your regular lunch stop during a work day or meeting with friends for coffee and a treat, the Delta Biscuit Co. food truck serves delicious food for making beautiful memories.
“I think eating and being reminded of a place and time is important. Biscuits and gravy remind me of my grandpa. It’s a memory,” Hayne shared with me. “To create new memories or be reminded of the past. Food is community and life. And wonderful things.”
