Man, I remember the early 190's... It was a WILD TIME!

Cleomedes stated that the moon did not glow on its own, but rather reflected sunlight. A shocking assertation for those days...

A large part of Rome burned, and Emperor Commodus ordered the city to be rebuilt under the name Colonia Commodiana.

A year later Commodus was assassinated by a wrestler named Narcissus, at the behest of Commodus' concubine, Chamberlain and Praetorian prefect. Thus ending the Antonines dynasty.

Because of all of the uncertainty Civil war again strikes Rome (192–193).

Ahhhh, the good old days...

I'm sure the Romans will be glad to hear that Bojangles in finally coming back!

Never seen so many typos in an article. The Sentinel is really suffering.

Can I get a job there too and write this PR disguised as news crap full of misspellings and mistakes?

Bojangles has the best breakfast of any fast food chain. They serve it all day and have this amazing Cajun filet buiscuit that is out of this world.  Popeyes is such a dying franchise and Bojangles is the fastest growing chicken franchise of its kind.  Orlando will wonder how did they ever live without Bojangles.  Check out their website I found:

Bojangles is different than Popeye's, but it's just as good, if not better in many ways.

I agree about the breakfast, the spicy filet biscuit is about the best breakfast item of any fast food restaurant. I haven't been to one in a few years, they are common in GA, so I went out of my way to stop at one as I traveled through north Ga.

Try the french fries, hands down the best fries of any restaurant, they sprinkle cajun seasoning on them after cooking, so they aren't like those nasty, coated, "seasoned fries" you get at other places.

If you have a sweet tooth, try the cinnamon biscuit or the Bo-Berry Biscut (LOL) but they are addictive so be careful!

Three Reasons Bojangles Is Loved By Everyone:


The first reason as to why everyone loves Bojangles is individuality. There is no other restaurant that has the same positive qualitites as Bojangles. Other fast-food restaurants such as McDonald's have similar counterparts, Burger King in this case, that they battle with for customers. Bojangles has no counterpart, it is truly unique, which may be why it is loved by virtually everyone who has ever tasted their 'Chicken N' Biscuit'.

Customer Appreciation

The next reason the the quality treatment of the all powerful customer. Bojangles is the perfect example of a restaurant that is truly committed to treating the customer well. The employees are friendly and kind, and their service is swift and simple. You are always greeted with a smile, and you are encouraged simply by their attitude to come back again.

The third and final reason is the price. Simply put, it is reasonable and fair. It fluctuates very little, and if it does change it is normally a decrease in the price; now I'm not saying the price never goes up, I'm simply referring to the fact that it normally doesn't change at all. Also, Bojangles always have a special going on. And no, I'm not referring to a special such as with McDonald's where you pay $2.00 and get a couple of scraggly cheeseburgers that look like the just came out of the trash; I'm talking about a special where you get 2 steak biscuits for $2.50 when the normal price would be $4.50 or higher.

My friend's daughter got a job with them. She said that they are set to open around April 10th, 2009. I have been craving some dirty rice, sweet tea, and the bacon egg and cheese biscuit. I miss them from my Carolina days.

I waited for 20 minutes to eat at the new Bojangles and I have to say it was amazing! It was such a new taste and I find myself wanting to go back really soon! The cajun filet biscuit and cinnamon biscuit stole the show!

The legendary Bojangles that has served the American South for so many years has finally made it's way to Central Florida! For those who don't know, Bojangles is a chicken and biscuits place that started in the Carolinas in 1977 and has expanded to Southern states that would appreciate a fast version of down home cooking. Bojangles completely annihilates the competition of KFC and Popeyes. The taste of the chicken makes you feel like you're in the South. The biscuits are phenomenal! Chick Fil A and McDonalds will definately feel their impact in the area. Oviedo is very lucky to have a Bojangles coming soon!

Bojangles is the only fast food I know of that still makes food from scratch. Their food is truly addictive. The biscuits are the best anywhere and their chicken is perfectly seasoned. It is cajun but not super hot, and not greasy like KFC or Popeyes. And the dirty rice is sooooo good. I only go to other fast food because of convenience, there is none I am really crazy about. But Bojangles food will cause you to have serious cravings. And I love how you can get breakfast anytime of day. It is unique. If you do not have one in the area you should make it a point to try when traveling.

I am from Kinston, NC and when I saw they they were about to start contruction on a Bojangles, I made it an issue to ride by it every other day until it opened. And on the grand opening day I bought everything I wanted. It was ridiculous. All of my friends are addicts now. They need to build more all around Orlando. My mouth is watering thinking about it. Thank you Bojangles for coming here to Orlando. We all needed you.
