If you’re originally from the South—or from the Midwest, like me—you probably experience a frequent pang for biscuits and gravy. And if you’re living in Vegas, you might not know where to find the best. We did some digging—and a lot of eating—to point you straight to the top.

1. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar This Venetian spot is known for its fried chicken, so what comes with its off-menu biscuits and gravy? A boneless fried chicken thigh, naturally. Dig into those fluffy biscuits with two crispy strips of bacon crisscrossed on top and an egg done however you want. $16 (at brunch). Grand Canal Shoppes, 702-297-6541.

2. Zenaida’s Cafe Chef Sterling Burpee named his biscuits and gravy after his mother in law, Tremaine. Awww. The savory gravy is made with pork and turkey sausage and served with—wait for it—spicy beef hot links. Add an egg, and little compares. $10. 3430 E. Tropicana Ave., 702-476-3117.

3. Mama Bird This Texas barbecue joint can throw down when it comes to breakfast. Fluffy, mouth-watering biscuits come smothered in traditional country gravy and topped with melted butter, pepper and parsley. A side of collard greens doesn’t hurt, either. $11.50. 10550 Southern Highlands Parkway, 702-570-6135.
