What is a Zaxby's???

Real Estate Agent with Broker Associate PenFed Realty 0496522

I have to admit my eyebrow was raised when I saw the sign "Zaxby's Coming Soon" by the roadside.  As in everything, google lead me to the answer.  It is a very popular chicken franchise restaurant.


I dropped in to take pictures but the manager said I needed corporate approval so I cannot post them.  I ordered wings to try them out.  In my humble opinion I wouldn't say they are better than KFC (considering I love KFC).


So if you are in The Colony, TX. I suggest you give them a shot.  They are located at 4547 Main St.  You cannot miss them.


BTW- The crushed ice is a nice perk with the soft drinks.

Corporate approval huh? I find that funny considering it is free advertising. Maybe he thought you were going to slam 'em for something, haha. :)

Richard, thanks for the tip.  I will have to try them just to see if they are better than my own!  (I am very proud of mine).

It's not a bad little place, and they are spreading. We have a few here, and they are now building another right up the street from my home.

Mel, when I first read the name I thought is was some type of  new department store and started to read your post to find out that is KFC's cousin going into the dead deep fried chicken business also. LOL

JL, I had never heard of them before now.  Apparently they are pretty popular.

Carole, I like the hole in the wall places myself.

Bo, I will take that under advisement.

Kristin, I have cracked the code on fried chicken.  If you are ever interested give me a call.

Roy, who can afford department stores right now?  Granted Wall Street showed some improvement today but just wait!  I am not buying the boat yet.

Hey Mel I have seen these on trips down south but never stopped.  Not a big fast food fan but we might try it on the next trip.

Obviously they had no Idea who they were speaking with in turning down your effort to promote their business.

Wings rock.

Mel, I don't like chicken (yes, I'm weird) but I'm a diet coke fan, and I love crushed ice!  I alsways love to hear what someone else has said about a new place before I try it myself! 


What about the purple garment?
