In the South, the biscuit makes the breakfast.
And the biscuit is the unquestionable star of the breakfast menu at Bojangles’, a southern chicken and biscuit chain that has cultivated a fervent cult following.
With over 700 locations in 11 states and Washington, DC, the chain has ensconced itself as a regional power player in the chicken game.
Bojangles’ is the fifth largest chicken chain in the country by sales, according to QSR Magazine.
To see if Bojangles’ chicken and biscuit-centric Southern breakfast lives up to the hype, Business Insider visited a location in Virginia.
The North Carolina-based chain has over 300 locations in that state alone, but we visited one in Charlottesville, Virginia.
It was late in the morning, but we had no qualms — Bojangles’ serves breakfast all day. The breakfast menu is fairly large, offering a bevy of biscuit sandwiches as well as some classic morning sides.
We ordered a decent representation of the menu: a chicken biscuit; a Cajun fillet biscuit’ a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit; a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit; a country ham biscuit; a plain biscuit; a “Bo-Berry” biscuit; and “Bo rounds,” the chain’s take on hash browns.
