Bonjangles' sweet tea alone elicits praise, but their fried chicken is worthy of worship. KFC and Popeye's got nothing on Bojangles and here's why: freshly breaded, never frozen bird with a Southern flair. The Cajun chicken has a generous coating of cayenne pepper, their mashed potatoes have a sausage gravy, and just talking about their dirty rice makes us want to take an improptu roadtrip to the deep South. Rumor has it there was a Bojangles in Chelsea 15 years ago, but there's no Bo' to go to now. What gives?
