Bojangles’ isn’t that good

Although I may dislike Bojangles’, the line during lunch usually snakes around the building. Students typically purchase a four piece box which comes with a biscuit, fries, and four piece chicken tenders (Photo courtesy of Kaitlyn Stocum).

Over three years of writing for The Mycenaean, I’ve written about Cookout and Tropical Smoothie, some of the most popular fast food restaurants that Leesville students eat at.

But as a friend sent me a Snapchat of a Bojangles’ box, I realized there is another fast food restaurant I have not yet addressed: Bojangles’.

I never actually had Bojangles’ until a couple of years ago at an NC State football tailgate. It was pretty good, but I mean it was just a biscuit and chicken tenders. Nothing to rave about.

Last year, I went with someone in the first semester who really liked Bojangles’, so I ate it a decent amount — but I’m still not a huge fan. I just don’t understand why people enjoy it so much when all they serve is biscuits and fried chicken. I could get the same food at Chick-fil-a for better quality and a better variety.

Chick-fil-a has multiple sauces and options when it comes to sandwiches, and the best fries at any restaurant.

“[Bojangles’] is good. It’s cheap…you get a lot of food for your money. It’s not good for your health, but it’s cheap,” said Sophia Antanitis, senior. Sophia frequently goes off to Bojangles’ and usually orders a Kids Supreme box with a Sprite for around five dollars.

In comparison, a chicken tender meal at Chick-fil-a is around seven dollars.

Matt Plazas, senior, likes Bojangles’ for similar reasons. “It’s just tastes really good and their honey mustard is really good. It’s really cheap for what you get, and sometimes they throw in an extra chicken strip.”

Clearly students enjoy Bojangles’ not only for their flavor, but its price as well. As a staple of the south, students will continue to enjoy Bojangles’ for years to come.
