Finally, this Southern fast food chain comes to NJ (Opinion)
If you’ve ever been to or are originally from the South, you are definitely familiar with Bojangles, a southern fried chicken chain.
Based in North Carolina, Bojangles has decided to spread its chicken wings and open 10 locations in the state of New Jersey.
The chain opened back in 1977 and is famous for its Cajun fried chicken and iced tea. It is almost mind-blowing that with over 750 locations across America none have yet been New Jersey.
While there is no information regarding an exact opening location or date, Bojangles plans on having locations in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, and Union counties. This opening will give us New Jerseyans yet another fast-food line too good not to wait for, in addition to some southern flavors we typically lack.
If you love biscuits, you will definitely be coming to Bojangles as they have an entire menu of biscuit sandwiches that can be enjoyed for almost any meal of the day. They also have traditional southern sides like Cajun pinto beans, dirty rice, green beans, coleslaw, and gravy.
The past couple of years have made traveling to the south difficult, and thanks to Bojangles, New Jerseyans will no longer need to catch a flight or drive 10 hours to enjoy a classic fried chicken sandwich. Not to mention Bojangles sauces are said to be out of this world, especially their classic sauce.
We can look forward to Bojangles locations being revealed throughout the year, but in the meantime, other great NJ restaurants will have to do.
