Napa Valley Biscuits: 1502 Main St., Napa; (707) 265-8209.
is off to a good start: Husband-and-wife proprietors Curtis and Tara Lindley of their new Main Street restaurant at 7:30 a.m. Saturday and quickly discovered just how eager diners have been for Southern-style cuisine.
"We weren't expecting such a positive response," said Tara Lindley, sounding slightly out of breath on Saturday afternoon.
"We were expecting to (serve) 100 people all day." Instead, the restaurant welcomed more than 100 people in the first two hours, she said.
Among the most popular dishes with first-day diners: chicken and waffles and the "Pappy sandwich," which she described as a slider made with waffles.
The Lindleys had planned to stay open until 4 p.m., but wound up closing about three hours early because by early afternoon, "we were running out of stuff" and there was a line out the door, she said.
Napa Valley Biscuits will reopen at 8 a.m. Sunday with a projected closing time of 3 p.m., Lindley said.
"We're thankful for the positive response."
