Vicious Biscuit's second location in Summerville is expected to open in October. Provided

Less than a year after Vicious Biscuit opened its first shop in Mount Pleasant, the restaurant is a few months away from opening another location. 

The second Vicious Biscuit is expected to open in October at Nexton Square in Summerville, the restaurant announced Thursday on Instagram. 

Michael Greeley and his wife Carly started Vicious Biscuit as a catering company in the summer of 2017. The restaurant opened in the former Boulevard Diner on Coleman Boulevard in December 2018 and has been busy since, says managing partner Josh Lambert.

"On the weekends, there's a line out the door up to Coleman Boulevard for three or four hours," Lambert said.

He said two more Vicious Biscuit locations will open in the next year. 

The breakfast and lunch spot is known for its namesake sandwich of fried chicken, sausage gravy, candied jalapenos and maple syrup, all on a cheddar-and-jalapeno buttermilk biscuit.

Their size, Lambert says, also sets the sandwiches apart. 

"They're big," he said of the 4-inch biscuits. "People say they're as big as their heads, but they're not."

Its menu also features deep-fried sweet potato dough balls and "not so vicious" items such as an oatmeal power bowl and a strawberry poppy-seed salad.

More than a dozen restaurants, such as Taco Boy and Fuji Sushi, are expected to open at Nexton Square.
