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.
