I remember the first time I had a biscuit.
It was at Skeeters Big Biscuits in Gainesville, Fla.
I was appalled that people where eating these doughy lumps.
It looked like something that would kill you if you ate an entire one.
Legacy of Skeeter's lives on years after closing
The biscuits were large and lard-filled, the portions gargantuan and the prices low.
Skeeter's Breakfast House was a starving student's dream, and Dave Ebel, 45, kept dreaming about the Gainesville mainstay long after he graduated from the University of Florida in 1986 and moved away.
"It was just one of those places you'd go after late-night football celebrations, with large crowds and a long wait to be seated," Ebel said. "They had this huge biscuit served on top of hash browns, and eggs any way you liked them. The meals were just huge, and priced very well for college students, and I'd always hoped I'd bring my family back for breakfast."
When Ebel moved back to Gainesville last year for his wife's job, he was heartbroken to learn that Skeeter's had closed, and wrote to Since You Asked to find out what happened.
Those living in Gainesville in the 1990s likely followed the saga that eventually led to Skeeter's demise in 1995.
