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.

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.

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.
