I love bojangles. They are my favorite chicken franchise. Nobody quite makes fried chicken like bojangles.

    And their breakfast biscuits are the best of the fast food joints. For that matter their biscuits are great any time of the day.

          We love Bojangles as well but I have noticed the spice level varies from store to store. And you know what, I like that. This tells me they do their seasoning and breading on site so you know it's a notch better than the rest.

          Oh yeah, a country ham biscuit with cheese is darn good.

            I like them too but they are the most pricy of all the chains.

              Bojangle's cream gravy is some of the best I've eaten and blows Hardee's out of the water. I'm currently hooked on their steak, egg & cheese biscuit. Their french fry seasoning is an excellent, all-purpose seasoning and is sold in the restaurant.

                Their biscuits are by far the best of any chain. Agree that the chicken is great but they are PRICEY! Good sides though...love the dirty rice!

                    Yeah, it's called Popeye's. I've had Bojangles in SC and Popeye's here in Chicago. Virtually the same but i prefer the latter.

Agree that their products are far superior to anything KFC or Church's can offer. They are one of the few places in our area of any kind to get really good biscuits, which are not exactly a northern specialty.

                        Good fried chicken is a rarity in the Northeast, that's for sure!

                              Bo is good Fried Chicken (FC) for fast food. I heard that Bo still fries in lard. Is that true? Anyway, not sure who said it but the spice level definitely varies. When very spicy it better than popeyes because their peices are bigger than Popeyes.

                              I love popeyes but is it me or have their chickens been getting smaller? Last time I had popeyes, I didn't know if I was eating chicken or a pegion because the peices were so small.

                                  I lived in Wilmington, NC for a short while after college ( my first job working with a minor league baseball team) and had never heard of Bojangles. But once I stopped it became one of my favorite restaurants. I love the breakfast and chicken and biscuits just seem to go together. We have Popeyes here in the upper Midwest, but it's just not the same.

                                    I have always found Bojangles better than Popeye's, KFC, Church's and Lee's....Too bad the closest one to me is about 150 miles away!!!

                                      I also prefer Bojo's and have two stories about them.

                                      I used to eat at Bojangles #1...first store...at the corner of West Blvd and Remount? in Charlotte. Maybe twenty square feet for the customers and no where at all to eat, take out only. Now rebuilt but it was wonderful.

                                      I was in Arthur's wine shop the day Bojangles was sold to a large food company. The founder came in and bought about $150,000 of wine. I was very happy for him.

                                        No Bojangles locally but we do have a Popeye's. Eaten there twice & the food was average at best...could be just this store as I have never eaten at another. Dirty rice was just lame.

                                          I think bojangles is better because popeyes chicken tends to have a fish like subtle taste to it sometimes, and I don't think Bo's has any seafood. Thus, the cooking oil tastes only like chicken.

                                                    But if he started a new Bojanlges post someone would have brought up links to all the previous Bojangles posts and scolded him for starting a new one.

                                                      Can't bring back an old thread, and you can't start a new one.

                                                      Anyway, I think he brings up a good point about cooking oil. Nothing wrecks fried food like bad oil, and sometimes the chicken at Popeyes was fried in bad oil. Now, I'm not sure if the oil is tainted with fish or if it is just dirty oil. It's been years since I've been to a Bojangles, so I really can't speak to the quality of their oil.

                                                        During peak Friday fish fry time at one upstate New York cafe the french fries would have a fish taste because the fries and fish were done in the same oil. The six other days of the week the freis would be fine.

                                                          I detest fried chicken, but I've had a shrimp Po Boy and red beans and rice from Popeye's. Not bad.
