No there isn't. The closest one may be in Raleigh!

it use to be here awhile back but Bojangles is now king here and it also is headquartered in Charlotte and probably the best you are going to get for that ca jun style.

I love me some Boston Market Chicken Pot Pie and I was mad when they closed the one in Gastonia. urgh

OMG, I would take Bojangle's over Popeye's anyday, hands down. If you have not tried it, you have got to. Just love the dirty rice, hubby and I cannot get enough. Chic Fil A, another favorite but luckily had those in MD in well so was very excited to see them here. Popeye's can just stay up north, LOL.

Coming from Md., I know how you miss it (Eee I Eeei Ohh), but having lived here for a year now, I can, with a good heart, tell you to just go over to Bojangles. They'll take care of you real good. You might miss the "Sparkle", but just till you get the first few bites down. Soon, you'll be trying to remember what it was you missed.
Enjoy!!!

This is a serious sore spot with me. Bojangles can't touch Popeyes with a 10-foot pole. Last time I went to Bojangles (and the last time I will be going), the food looked like toy food, and didn't taste much better. I can't tell you how much I wish a Popeyes would open here. Why exactly does Bahrain have one and we don't? At least there's some other good places to get chicken from.

Closest one is in Columbia, SC, although if you happen to be going to Raleigh, there's one in Whitsett, NC.


(mmmm, chick-fil-a...)

I agree with searpr... it's not even close. Popeyes chicken is a lot better and their mashed potatoes & gravy and biscuits blow Bojangels away. Bojangels has really good dirty rice, but that's about it... and I like that they serve sausage biscuits all day long. I'm from Louisiana and I miss Popeye's SO much... every time I travel I stop and eat at one!
