Thanks to Sarah, Ben and for sending: “old Mason Dixie space on 7th. There are signs in the window for Prescription Chicken, but this Takorean signage went up today. Does anyone know which is coming?”

From Mason Dixie:

“To Our Beloved Biscuit Fans and Fam:

It is with heavy heart that after 6 years of being DC’s go-to biscuit shoppe, we have made the very difficult decision to close our doors. While our hearts are broken to see our restaurant’s journey come to an end, we are humbled and consider ourselves lucky to have a strong, growing frozen consumer product business that is now nationwide in over 5,000 locations, growing faster than ever, and now expanding into new products. The impact of COVID-19 has been surreal and defeating and we had to make the tough decision that continuing to sail into an unknown future of restaurant ownership was too risky when we have the opportunity to focus our efforts on a growing, thriving, and critical business in grocery, one where we have the ability to feed and educate the nation on what better for you biscuits really means.

We want to take the opportunity to thank all of our supporters and dedicated fans for all you have done to get us where we are today and while closing the restaurant is like closing the foundational chapter in our coming-of-age story, it is also what has led us to some remarkable moments in our history here in this amazing city: (more…)

Back in March we learned that Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. was closing on Bladensburg Road and moving to a new location. My sources now say that this will be in Shaw!! I give this scuttlebutt an 88% accuracy rating. Stay tuned for their “signature fried chicken” and much more. God willing.

Ed. Note: This is right near Uprising Muffin that, I believe, will soon become an &pizza – stay tuned on that front too.

So much for those crazy long lines.

From Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.:

“After a whirlwind of a year here on Bladensburg Road, we’re excited to announce we will be relocating to Northwest DC! Our new location will offer extended hours (with dinner service!), an expanded menu selection, more seating, and metro accessibility.

Our last day in our current location will be Sunday, March 4th. (more…)

From an email:

“Starting this Saturday, Mason Dixie will officially be available for delivery on Caviar. To celebrate the launch, Mason Dixie will offer free delivery and the first 40 customers who order a chicken box or bucket will receive a complimentary freshly-baked chocolate chip cookie (Saturday and Sunday only).

Additionally, the team will launch a new and improved menu this weekend, featuring their signature fried chicken available all day, every day and breakfast available all day on Saturdays and Sundays. New seasonal salads and sides will be offered, like creamy Chicken Salad, on a bed of fresh greens, carrots, cucumber and tomato served with a mini biscuit.

Check out the new menu: MasonDixie-2017-June-Menu (PDF)

If all of this excitement wasn’t enough, Mason Dixie is proud to announce that the installation of a new set of flash fryers means less wait time, and more product availability throughout the day.”

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.”
