Came into town a little late in the evening. My family and myself were starving. I had heard great things about Zaxby's and wanted to try it. Not only was the customer service horrible but the food was too. Our wings were dry and celery was old. Eat at your own risk.

New cashier working the front on a Friday. We had questions about the menu and request for the wings and fingers. The manager sighs and looks at us as if we were a problem because her employee can't answer a question or don't know how to ring up the order correctly. You put her up front without proper training apparently.... More

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.

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.
