Zaxby’s – It’s the Perfect Stop on a Road Trip!


Traveling and good food are some of my guilty pleasures in life. Like most of our road trips, it begins with stopping at one of our favorite restaurants for chicken fingers and wings, Zaxby’s!   Known for having some of the most flavorful chicken and unique sauces around, Zaxby’s indescribably good flavors are simply hard to forget and leave you wanting more from that first bite. 



From the moment you walk through the doors, you feel comfortable and at home.  This upscale casual restaurant is visually appealing with their floor-to-ceiling brick walls and an eclectic mix of photography. It’s a place that you don’t mind just lingering around in while enjoying your food.

One of our favorite items to munch on are the wings. Available in traditional and boneless options, you can choose to have them baked in your sauce of choice or served naked.  Whether you want bone-in or bone-out, your taste buds are going to explode with flavor the moment your tongue meets the wings. My husband enjoys their “Nuclear” sauce, but heed the warning that the nuclear sauce is  “a mouth-detonating mix of atom-splitting heat and serious flavor fallout.” They’re hot enough to make your forehead bead up a little so make sure you dive into the cool ranch dipping sauce to take the heat down a notch.  If that is not your style, there are eight other tantalizing flavors to satisfy your palate.  Find out what your saucenality is with this fun quiz.  I think mine is right on!

If you are craving a salad or just looking for something a little healthier, Zaxby’s has four zalads that are just as flavorful and indescribably good as their fingers and wings.  Served in REAL bowls, these zalads are larger than most salads offered elsewhere and are made fresh right when ordered.  One that we order often, the House Zalad, is prepared with a generous portion of grilled or fried chicken, mixed greens, red cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, Roma tomatoes, pepperjack and cheddar cheeses, fried onions, and Texas toast.  I just love how the fried onions give the salad that little extra crunch.

Although it may not be on the menu at the current time, the Zensational Zalad is truly amazing! A salad with mixed greens and large chunks of chicken fingers served with an Asian slaw and honey sesame glaze!  This is one zalad that takes your senses off to explore an Asian fare.  As an added bonus, the Citrus Vinaigrette dressing and a tasty veggie egg roll seriously complement this meal.  Be sure to keep an eye out for this to return to the menu.  It is one you don’t want to miss!

The menu also offers some delicious zappetizers like Tater Chips, Onion Rings, Spicy Fried Mushrooms, and Fried White Cheddar Bites.   While we love all their zappetizers, we highly recommend the Fried White Cheddar Bites and Onion Rings.  The Onion Rings come with a zesty sauce but if the truth be told, they are great even without the dipping sauce! Better yet, if you are entertaining, check out what Zaxby’s has to offer.  We know many of you are going to be hosting some get-togethers for the football season quickly approaching.  Zaxby’s catering has plenty of indescribably good portions for those shindigs! 


Road trips are great opportunities to make memories with loved ones, but with your family in tow, it can also be a challenge.  No one wants to listen to the fighting that ensues when it comes to mealtime.  What you need is a place with plenty of seating, a welcoming atmosphere, and a varied menu so you don’t have to worry over the tearful tantrums.  And that is what is great about Zaxby’s!  It is a family friendly restaurant that is perfect for road trips and everyday living.

To celebrate their indescribably good zalads, wings, and chicken fingers, and more, we are giving away a $50 gift card to Zaxby’s.  Enter below. Giveaway ends August 31.

    Road trips are awesome, and some of my best memories are from road trips! But there’s a huge difference between road tripping with friends versus family. I agree that it can be challenging even though it’s fun. Anyway, nice that you found a family friendly place to stop by and eat:)
