I wouldn't go out of my way to stop at either one.

Waffle House-many things there are pretty good except steaks- they taste like everything that has been on the grill. I have never been to a Bojangles.

I have not been to Waffle House in years...but I agree with some of the other posters, love the hashbrowns. Scattered..Smothered..Covered and Diced (that's with ham).

A Waffle House near me was recently shut down by the health dept with a sanitation grade of 59. Most places have 95 and above and their scores are often in the 70s and 80s. I live in Charlotte now, home of Bojangles, and the only think I like from their is the Boberry biscuit. Now Chick-Fil-A otoh is good.

neither IMO is worth a detour.... not exactly a "dining experience" you would probably get a better breakfast or lunch at a local mom & pop restaraunt.

I've only been to the Waffle House a few times and wasn't impressed - all the food tasted the same...like grease! Not worth an out of the way drive IMHO. Now......Bob Evan's......YUM!! Biscuits!!! I'll be mapping out the Bob Evan's for our drive to Missouri from Mass!

Please, I really dont' need no snob from Long Island, Boston or Connecticut here telling me that my, my family and friends taste is too low or unrefined. I've eaten Japanese and Thai food before and hated it, I'm looking for somethign new.

In a few weeks I'll be taking a trip to Baltimore to visit friends and along the way I have an option of taking detours to eat at either Waffle House or Bojangles. (Waffle House in Bel Air, MD and Bojangles in New Carrollton, MD). Both would involve about 30-45 minutes extra driving from my main route. Would it be worth it? For those who have eaten in these places, it is true that Waffle House is by far superior to IHOP and that Bojangles is by far superior to Popeyes and KFC? I've also heard that in particular Waffle House has a unique, small town ambience and a family feel to it that most places lack. How much of Bojangles menu is only moderately spicy or not spicy? I like moderately spicy food but I won't like stuff that's too hot.

And between Bojangles and Waffle House, which is better?
We also live in MD-on the Eastern Shore but have lived in Carroll County as well...
We have only been to 1 waffle house in MD, it was in Frederick and it was horrible. It was dirty,the food was cold and to be honest, my daughter, who LOVES waffles,didn't even eat hers.
Not worth if if you ask me.......... especially if you have to fight MD traffic to get to one.

If you go to Waffle House, use the restroom at your own risk. Even if the dining area is clean, for some reason the restrooms are always filthy (i guess because 24hrs?). I actually had to hold my breath in one of them.

I like IHOP better than Waffle House. I did once eat at Bojangles in North Carolina and really didn't care for the food there. Also the Bojangles wasn't that clean,so I've never wanted to eat there again,but chains do vary --some restaurants are better and cleaner than others. Now Cracker Barrell I WOULD recommend!
