The Bankston family has been in business for over 40 years. Rodney and Kay Bankston started Bankston Tire and Appliance in the early 70's. The business flourished under their leadership and when their sons, Brent and Brad, started to show interest in business; they knew that they had the beginning of something unique. With the Tire and Appliance store still in full swing, Rodney realized that if anything was to ever "happen" to him, that a mother and two children could not continue to run the existing business. So in the early eighties, as the boys got older and showed interest collecting, a natural business started to evolve.
In 1985, Bankston's Used Books was opened, and over time grew into the comics, sports cards, and collectibles store that it is today. In 2016, Brent saw the opportunity for a new business when a spot opened up in the same strip center as Bankston's.. He called Lee, who was at the time catering out of their house, and offered the opportunity for an industrial kitchen to be used for catering. The exterior then would be left for merchandise. The original plan was foiled when Lee's cooking became enormously popular and King's Landing and Butter My Biscuit became a hybrid restaurant/game store.
Today, we have a unique environment that encompasses a variety of enjoyable aspects that are offered by each component of King's Landing and Butter My Biscuit. King's Landing offers a fun, enjoyable atmosphere for people to host gaming tournaments and campaigns, vintage games and cards, and friendly staff who are knowledgeable and helpful. Butter My Biscuit offers tasty food, beer, wine, and coffee to accompany all our customers during operating hours!

We started out as a small, at-home catering business for families and friends. We never intended to grow into a "real" restaurant. But, with the encouragement of those very same family and friends, we started a restaurant founded on Lee's core cooking beliefs.
1. Food must be fresh.
2. Food must be made from scratch.
3. Food must be served hot.
Back in the kitchen, these are jokingly called, "Lee's Laws" and they affect how we serve you every day. We strive to serve you the best fresh, hot, scratch-made food you've ever eaten!
Our Biscuits are made fresh every day. We use fresh ingredients like real buttermilk, butter and cream cheese in every biscuit. We make our biscuits by hand with no machinery. The gentle, hand-made touch is what makes our biscuits soft and tender. We believe it's worth every extra minute it takes. Taste one and we think you'll agree!
