Foody Tuesday: Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits
Welcome to the first installment of the new Foody Tuesday feature here at Painfully Suburban! Today we travel to the deep south, as we review the dining experience at Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits.
On my flight to SF, I had about an hour and a half layover in Charlotte, NC, so it was a good thing that the airport presented a large variety of dining options. Although I must admit to being extremely tempted by the advertised breakfast special of a crab cake, eggs, and a bloody mary at the Phillips seafood restaurant, I ultimately decided to go with Bojangles' because it seemed more quintessentially southern. My breakfast meal consisted of the gravy biscuit combo, which came with a beverage and a side of Botato Rounds® for $5.73. The biscuits were on the small side, but they were very moist and smothered in a generous amount of white sausage gravy. The biscuits and gravy alone would make for a satisfying meal, but the Botato Rounds® took the experience to the stratosphere! Moist on the inside (mushier than tater tot filling, but more solid than mashed potatoes), crunchy on the outside, and covered with a delicious, slightly spicy seasoning, I reckon I found a new favourite potato-based food!
While I was eating my breakfast, I kept a lookout for the lady who had been in line in front of me at the cashier, as she had ordered the BoBerry sweet biscuits from the dessert menu, and I was curious to see whether the berries were baked into the biscuits or in sauce form atop them. I never did see her, but the next time I visit a Bojangles', I'll definitely try them, as well as any other menu item with a Bo- prefix. All in all, it was a good meal, though in hindsight, I probably should have gone with a chicken biscuit sandwich, since it includes both things for which the chain is famous.
