This one is dedicated to

and our veterans.
This one is dedicated to Frank “Hurricane” Hines and our Veterans - with a bit of Lobos, occasional Harley club bash and good old family gathering thrown in...Stripes Biscuit Co. has been 40 years in the making; you CAN feel it, but the TASTE is what you will remember.
Stripes Biscuit Co. Grand Opening was Feb. 15, 2018. They are proud of their huge portions (huge is an understatement) of delectable homemade dishes. The salads come in full and half portions. The meats are slow cooked and piled high on fresh hand tossed biscuits or biscuit waffles. The gravies, sauces, sides and dressings are special recipes labored over for many years ending in perfection. You will taste the labor of love in every last morsel!
Gary, sometimes “Coach” Gary Hines, has been a restauranteur for years. He started his profession with Furr’s cafeteria 40+ years ago and traveled several states opening many locations. Like most ambitious young men, he decided at some point to open his own establishment. His first highly successful endeavor was ABQ’s beloved “Hurricanes” in 1998. Eventually, Gary sold Hurricanes and then opened “Twisters Burgers and Burritos” still thriving today. And now...Stripes Biscuits co.
Gary has always admired his Father, “Hurricane”, and has always planned some day to celebrate his Legacy as a soldier. Stripes Biscuit company is just that. A comfortable place with good old fashioned cooking dedicated to veterans. The walls are aligned with photos of Hines' family history and other vets. Drop off a pic of your fav vet and Gary will do his best to make it part of the decor!
Gary volunteers on a regular basis
at the VA Hospital and
15% of all proceeds from Stripes
is given to it.
The biscuits are made daily several times with whipped frozen butter crystals and the waffles and french toast are made with the hand tossed biscuit dough. The bacon is candied and doubled smoked. The sausage is made and spiced from scratch. The holandaise is made fresh for each order of Eggs Benedict.
The concept and recipes for the restaurant have developed over many years. Once Hines knew he wanted to open a breakfast/lunch sandwich shop, he then traveled the country researching successful competitors. He experimented with lots of recipes till all involved approved. Lastly, he found just the right location close to Kirtland AFB.
The Lobos could not be slighted. Hines is a huge alumni supporter and at one point was “Coach Hines” for the UNM wrestling team. One whole wall at Stripes Biscuit Co. is dedicated to UNM. Gary has plenty of space for groups and if you want the “Lobo” room you can even shut the door.
Frank “Hurricane” Hines has to be proud of his son and his new adventure, but I’m sure he never had any doubt. Stripes Biscuit Co. ia a place where vets, fans and families can meet, chat and eat lots of scrumptious piled high biscuits and their accoutrements.
