Biscuit Station to Become Ruben’s Downtown

The spot on the corner of Person and Edenton Streets was once home to Biscuit Station, a mom and pop greasy spoon restaurant that had been around for about 20 years. It closed last October, and the former service station has sat vacant since.

A tiny sign in the window says Coming Soon: Ruben’s Downtown. Despite occupying a rather quiet area despite the high traffic of Edenton Street, a lunch spot has the potential to do well, with hundreds of state employees within a few mile radius.
