My husband and I stopped in around 5:30 on a Saturday evening. The girl at the front counter was very friendly, the place was clean, and there was nice R&B playing in the background. My husband got the club sandwich and I got wings. The sandwich was really heavy on the mayo and the crinkle fries were cold and soggy.... More

Not sure how this place stays in business. From the lack of people in the restaurant, I guess it may not. The food was no better than some off the road drive-in. The folks working there acted like they couldn't wait to get off to go home, No reason to go back.

Long wait. 3 of our 4 orders were wrong. No ice in the coke machine. Asked the employee behind the counter. After 15 min someone finally turned the machine on and said we would have ice in a minute. Five minutes later and still no ice I realized that the drivethru must have ice and sure enough I asked for... More

If you enjoy flavorful chicken in an up scale "good food served fast" atmosphere, Zaxbys should be your go to spot in the Patrick Henry area. Located behind the Jefferson Avenue Costco off of Oyster Point, the place is clean with a variety of comfortable seating, with spots for 2-10. Pleasant music playing softly in the background adds a nice... More

Given the many choices for chicken places, this is the top for me!!! The salads are big and the sandwiches are tasty!!! The only downfall this day was they must have been shorthanded, and food service was slow. No harm, I will still pass Chik-Fil-A any day for a Zaxby's!!!

Great chicken fingers, both the original and buffalo style. A little on expensive side, I spent around $25 for three ppl for dinner. Would definitely return.

No more Chik-Fil-A for me!!! The service here is quick, clean, and well worth the price. The sandwiches are tasty and juicy. Yum!!!

I had Zaxby's years and years ago but they're pretty much only available in the South, so I made a point to stop by while I was in Virginia over Memorial Day weekend. It's still the best fried chicken I've ever had. The chicken is just amazing, large tenders and crinkle cut fries - great combo! This location is also... More

Close to home, Zaxby's is a great choice for take home tenders! Love the iced tea, the toast and the special Zaxby's dipping sauce! If the fries are fresh and hot, they are good, too. I make a visit about 4 times a month!!!
