Fun treat

The chicken is always great! We LOVE the dipping sauce and use it for our fried too! We always get extra toast because 1 slice is not enough! I love the onion rings and their sauce too. An easy go-to if you don't feel like cooking tonight.

I guess if you like this kind of food, Zaxby's is OK. We did not care for having our wings coated with a crust, which is not the traditional way to do wings. But I guess the local folks go for this style, because there was a long line of cars at lunch. The service was efficient and friendly.

Zaxby's food is always hot and fresh! When we are looking for something fast and do not want the typical fast food, we always head to Zaxby's. Management and staff are always helpful and friendly.

The food is Zaxby's is very good. I really like the buffalo chicken, salads, and ice tea. And the crushed ice is a real nice touch. I do wish they had Crystal host sauce instead of just their formulated stuff. The prices are a little higher than standard fast food restaurants, but the quality is generally better.

I went on a Sunday night before a road trip back to Miami. It looked closed from how dark it was outside. Food was mediocre. Typical fast food fried chicken. Service was not that good either. Wouldn't recommend...

Nothing to brag about. I don't mind spending my very hard earned money, but I wasn't impressed by the food.

Zaxby's is one of our favorite places to grab a quick bite to eat. The chicken is moist and flavorful. Fries have a little kick to them! Zaxby's sauce is SO good. They usually have $5 meal deals which I love. My only complaint is that the bathrooms are not always very clean.

I had never tried a Zaxby's before and the cashier assured me that I would love the food. I tried his recommendation and I must admit it was hard to keep from giving this guy a high five. Very enjoyable and tasty.

The title says it all. My two favorite idems, I know the shake is limited, so I wish you could put it on you menu permenantly. The wings are awesome for their sauce and the tenderness of the chicken, best wings in any fast food joint.
