I got a Cajun club sandwich (grilled chicken) and it was a quality chicken breast - yummy! I tried Zax sauce and Insane sauce, both were good. I'm a hot sauce fanatic and the insane sauce was very hot and very good. Not the cleanest place I've ever been, but the staff was nice! I'll definitely be back. This was... More

My son loves coming here and getting the sweet and spicy boneless wings. Wish more people came to check this place out, but I think the location deters them. I hope business picks up in 2017!

We like Zaxby's at home, so we were very glad to see one in Williamsburg, VA. We stopped in for a late dinner on our way to our hotel around 8 p.m. There was only one other family inisde at the time. The young men working at the counter greeted us with a smile and were very friendly. Our food... More

Excellent salads, also known as zalads. Big enough to share between two people. My favorite is the fried Cobb with hard boiled egg, bacon, tomato, cucumber, cheese, fried onion, etc. My wife likes Panera's but Zaxby's is much better.

We are not familiar with Zaxby's so we decided to give it a try. Like most fast food restaurants, you walk up to the front counter to place your order. Once your food is ready they call your number to come and pick it up. The dining area was very spacious and clean. The decor was simple, had dark hardwood... More

Although different food selections than your normal fast food place, the food was still just average.

I have always loved Zaxbys, but not anymore. The chicken tenders are much smaller, and not as tasty. The snack meal use to be a good deal, but that's no longer true. I can get more bang for my buck at another fast food restaurant.

Having eaten my fair share of the KFC stuff, this place came as a real surprise. Four adults and one 2 YO. Looking for "a bucket of chicken." Well - that won't happen here. It seems like the features are wings or chicken strips. We order a bunch of both. The sauces were fine. French fries were non-descript. However, the... More

My sister introduced me to this establishment. I ordered the grilled chicken blue cheese salad. Sis ordered a salad for her hubby and herself. The salads were excellent. Fresh and tasty. Went back after I was away for three weeks. Had the same experience. Wish there was one where I live.
