Well, I found a new favorite restaurant on our recent trip to Florida! Bojangles kindly sent me some gift cards to try out a location in Orlando, so one morning on our trip we decided to stop in for breakfast. I don't remember ever eating at Bojangles before, but I am glad I finally did! Our family was a little tired of the traditional hotel breakfasts, so rather than waiting for lunch, we thought a nice breakfast at Bojangles would be good.
|Read this closely...it says "Making sweet tea is an art form"!|
I chose a Cajun Filet Biscuit Combo, which came with a soda and Bo-Tato Rounds, which are basically hash browns. Everyone else ordered a breakfast biscuit of some sort; I believe we tried just about every one offered! Bacon egg and cheese, sausage egg and cheese, country ham biscuit, and a steak biscuit. Of course to wash down all this southern food you need just one thing-sweet tea! Thankfully Bojangles offers their legendary sweet tea by the half gallon, so we didn't need to purchase a drink for each individual.
After getting our food we wasted no time digging in, and I was really impressed with mine! The chicken biscuit is so big that I couldn't finish it. The only thing I was missing was mayo because I had forgotten to request it before we headed out. However, the cajun filet was great even without it. The Bo-Tato Rounds are absolutely delicious! I love the hint of onion in the potatoes; these are much better than your typical hash browns. And what better way to finish off a breakfast than with sweet iced tea? This is definitely a southern sweet tea, because it's so sweet it could be used as syrup on pancakes! (Southerners will get that joke :)
Everyone else really seemed to enjoy their breakfast as well. I was informed that the country ham biscuit was a little on the dry side, but I am sure this is something that could have been adjusted if we actually ate at the restaurant. Because we were headed to northern Florida that day though, we just got the food to go. I heard plenty of good comments about the food though, and a couple "I can't finish this biscuit". When you eat at Bojangles, you don't need to worry about getting enough food!
I had some money left over on the gift card, so when we ran into another Bojangles on our trip around lunch time, C and I decided to try out their lunch menu. We ordered from the $5.00 Box menu, and this is a deal that can't be beat! You can choose from a variety of chicken; I ordered the Roasted Chicken Bites, and C chose the Grilled Chicken Sandwich. These also come with 1 Fixin' each, a biscuit, and a free sweet tea! I had mashed potatoes with my chicken, and C had the Macaroni n' Cheese. This was honestly one of the best chicken meals I have ever tasted, and the best part is it only cost $5.00 for the entire meal! I don't know of any other restaurants that offer a meal with entree, side, bread and drink for just $5.00! The Roasted Chicken Bites are just wonderful, with a yummy seasoning.
I also finished off the meal with a Cinnamon Pecan Twist-if you ever eat at Bojangles, be sure to try one of these-we're talking pastry heaven! I will certainly be watching for Bojangles on any future trips down south.
