A reader reports:

“Driving home this weekend, I noticed that Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. appears to be setting up a brick and mortar spot on Bladensburg, just north of NY Ave NE. It’s taking over the building that used to be Dolphin Fish and Chicken. Super exciting to see something that isn’t a new night club going in on this stretch, and hoping it means more to come for Bladensburg!!”

Mason Dixie Biscuit Co tells me they should be opening soon – stay tuned for an exact opening date later next week.  In the meantime they describe the new spot:

CUISINE: A nostalgic throw-back to a 1950’s roadside kitchenette, Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.’s Drive Thru is a fresh-fast restaurant focusing on crave-worthy biscuit sandwiches, juicy fried chicken, and creamy frozen “Cultshakes” by DC’s premier ice creamery, Milk Cult. Mason Dixie serves versions of these delicious Southern roadside classics made-to-order, using fresh, preservative-free, hormone-free, and high quality local ingredients with heart-warming Southern hospitality.

ICE CREAM PROGRAM: Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. partners with DC ice creamery, Milk Cult, on an ice cream program specially made for the Drive Thru. The menu is complete with ice-creams by the scoop, inventive ice cream sandwiches, and introducing the exclusive “Cultshake” by Mason Dixie – signature hand-spun milkshakes only available at the Drive Thru. The duo met as members of Union Kitchen in Ivy City and are collaborating for this break-out concept.

SPACE: Located in Washington, DC’s thriving Ivy City/Gateway community, Mason Dixie’s Drive-Thru reinvigorates the former fast food locale into a nostalgic 1950’s roadside kitchenette. The restaurant preserves the existing drive-thru and features updated vintage fixtures and a fresh new face to the exterior façade. The 32-seat restaurant interior gives a playful nod to a throw-back Howard Johnson meets old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Hand-picked vintage furniture and a retro color scheme provide a fun and relaxed aesthetic which will reintroduce the social aspect of the classic teen hangout spot. The youthful ambiance and family-friendly atmosphere is sure to evoke a trip down memory lane.”
