Good food at a fair price.

I tend to eat here about once every month. I try to get something different each time. However, the chicken tender plate is the best. Love their Zax sauce, so I always order extra sauce for my fries.

I found while looking for a quick dinner. The sign, logo and name are puzzling - I cannot even pronouncement of its name! Ordered the chicken salad . The chicken was very fresh and nicely spiced. Nice mix of raw Vegas with salad. Served with one slice if French toast.

I love their Chicken Salads and they are located a Shopping Center, near Walmart and other businesses. Easy to access off a Main Street, Bessemer Super Highway.

Went to Cracker Barrel and electricity was out, drove over to Ruby Tuesdays and they were not open. Zaxby's had no line and no waiting so my wife and I went in. I ordered a buffaloed blue salad and my wife ordered the same but wanted grilled. Order came and my wife's didn't have buffalo sauce. Went up and the... More

The chicken served here is so good! The battered tenders are great, and so are the salads and side dishes.

I love Zaxby's anyway but they were really nice at this location and very clean. We ate inside and they were very friendly and clean. I stress that because not all restaurant in this particular area are.

I love the freshness of their chicken. That Zensation salad is wonderful and such a different take on a chicken salad. It should be a menu regular and not a limited item.
