Spotlight on some of our new Super Bowl (or whenever, because this is a pandemmie) beers 🍻 come pick them up anytime this weekend!

@championbeer’s Shower Beer: fresh and clean maltiness and spicy aroma. Highly recommend a Shower Beer for your next beer in the shower.

@sloopbrewingco’s Juice Bomb IPA: awesome starter for those who are dipping their toes in the world of hops. Super citrusy and balanced.

@rarbrew’s Stunts! Sour Tangerine Ale: essentially tastes like boozed up tangerine kombucha. Yum 🍊

@portcitybrew’s Porter: bittersweet chocolate and coffee notes make a descriptively smooth porter.

@bellsbrewery Two Hearted Ale: insanely drinkable IPA that’ll keep you coming back for more. Trust us.

Our kitchen staff 💙

Restaurant workers deserve better. 2020 was a punishing year and 2021 doesn’t feel any different for us yet. This group of people has been working tirelessly, and often with smiles, through every single change this pandemic has forced us to throw at them. The woes of the restaurant industry and its demise are creating long-term economic harm, and many of the people in these photos have been working through grief of personal tragedy coupled with the everyday fear that their main source of income, our restaurant, is teetering each week that passes.

So we are closed for a holiday break this week, despite financial implications for doing so. It’s only for five paltry days, but we hope that those five days will give this team a small moment of respite and a heartfelt “thank you” for all that they have done for Stomping Ground and our customers.

To many of you, we are just biscuits and coffee, but to us, it is so much more.

Make the Not So Classic your new weekend classic.

Don’t forget we’ll be closed this coming Monday-Friday (Feb 1-5) to give our staff a late holiday break - come get all your favorites before the weekend’s up!

The Not So Classic style: fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit with red onion, za’atar, benne seed tahini, our house hot sauce, and honey.

Available all day, everyday, but @senoritaburbano’s latest delicious, boozy concoctions pair perfectly with our PM dinners.

Classic Old Fashioned - made with rye, a perfect-for-winter spiced maple syrup, and two kinds of bitters.

Not Your Abuelita’s Horchata - don’t sleep on this one. It’s deliciously creamy, rummy and spiced. You’ll wish you bought more!

Bond Girl - love a vesper martini? Try this take with aperitif cocchi americano. 007 who?

Pinky Up - a taste of summertime in the dregs of winter. Like sipping a floral sweet(ish) tea on a porch swing, but with bourbon.

Everything you love about French onion soup (the melty gruyere, caramelized onions) meets everything you love about a quiche..... but on a biscuit 😏

No joke y’all. This salad is hop-up-on-the-table-to-shake-it-good, hence, the name Dance on The Table Bibb. Credit goes directly to you, @lizwixson 😉

Crispy Bibb lettuce, pickled shrimp 🦐, cucumber, cilantro, toasted peanuts, and jalapeño-lime vinaigrette.

Can a sandwich get more southern than this? Biscuit ✔️ collard greens ✔️ green tomato chow chow ✔️ gruyere, we’ll give you a pass on this one.

Collard green melt: slow roasted collard greens, melty gruyere cheese, green tomato chow chow (southern relish, trust us on this one!) on a biscuit. Forks recommended 🍽

We’re comin’ out swinging this week with new menu items! We’ve added a bunch of goodies to the AM menu so stick with us to see ‘em.

Up first: the Southern Frenchie. A biscuit with country ham, cultured butter, and cornichon pickles. Excuse me while I dream about this tangy, salty, buttery sandwich for the next week.

Order yours online or at the window now!

We’re only 7 days into 2021 and it already feels like a lifetime. Don’t know about you, but we think it’s time for some comfort food. Pillowy goodness in a bowl just hit the menu - chicken ‘n dumplins, deviled ham and saltines, topped off with a pecan pie bar.

Come grab yours tonight or tomorrow and W-F through the rest of the winter season ❄️

Congratulations on the new restaurant. Read your article in Alexandria Stylebook. We are excited to be your customers.
We just had the best Fried Chicken and biscuits dinner. Amazing cooking.
So nice to eat dinner here again!
Great breakfast with my girl at Stomping Ground.
What type of fish are you frying tonight?
You guys absolutely KILLED IT with the Superbowl Sunday catering meals!!! We had a party full of Stomping Ground breakfast biscuit regulars, so they knowingly had high expectations, and every single person said the chicken dinner topped the breakfast experience. 😳 Watch out for the dinner rush 😄
Nicole/Elle spotted with Bruiser this am in Stomping Grounds! Call Vogue!
Good almost-Halloween morning from the cast and crew at Stomping Grounds! Makes my breakfast taste better than ever.
Thank you, thank you to Stomping Ground for catering our luncheon event!!! The mini biscuits were all FANTASTIC and all our guests raved about them! We will know next time to order roughly double the amount of fried chicken mini biscuits... I think people were lining their pockets 🤣
