What Should I Order at Bojangles?
My fiance and I have a tradition of getting a Bojangles cajun chicken filet biscuit every time we go on a road trip. Crispy and packed with spice, it's the perfect road-friendly meal to eat while getting settled into the highway. We sometimes order a side of the sausage gravy to dip our biscuits in and my, oh, my, is it heaven on earth!
For dinner, try Bojangles signature fried chicken and made from scratch biscuits topped with butter and honey. Don't forget to order a side of Bo-tato Rounds or dirty rice to round out the meal. And for dessert, nothing sounds better than the Bo-Berry biscuit, which is a biscuit with blueberries and topped with a sugar glaze.
Bojangles also offers seasonal items such as pimento cheese and a whole fried turkey during the holidays.
