Wife had a chicken sandwich, I had the chicken fingers meal. We enjoyed both of them but the thing that distinguishes this place is the Zaxby's Sauce. Without the sauce, this would be just another chicken place and I wouldn't cross the road to get to it!

These chicken strips are the best! Always fresh and served hot. It's amazing how many and how fast they get customers thru the drive-thru as quickly as they do and without making a mistake with an order. Excellent service always!

I eat at Zaxby's all over the Southeast US and this location is by far the worst. Slow service, long wait for fast food, ready orders not called out and sitting there. Even the Coca Cola Freestyle machine was out of just about everything including Coke!!! Don't bother eating here if you're in a hurry.

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.
