Zaxby's defines comfort with a single word: chicken. However, that one word is hardly limiting. The casual restaurant—which can be found in 15 states—transforms poultry into salads, sandwiches, wings, chicken fingers, and more. Their most popular item remains the chicken finger plate, which comes with crinkle fries, Texas toast, cole slaw, and Zaxby's own signature sauce.
Sauce is the second pillar of Zaxby's cooking philosophy. Their cooks make nine different varieties for dipping, drizzling, and coating crispy eats. These sauces go from mild buffalo all the way up to "insane," which pushes the mouth's central air-conditioner to its limits. Other options break from buffalo into teriyaki and BBQ territory, incorporating a touch of hickory flavor. And for dessert, there's always chocolate syrup, poured liberally over signature milkshakes such as the chocolate cookie.
Frozone Yogurt serves up frozen yogurt made to contain five active culture strains and three probiotics. Although its frosty treats have a health-conscious side, Frozone Yogurt also delivers a variety of decadent flavors. The candy-bar smash flavor packs peanut butter, toffee, chocolate, and caramel into one flavorful swirl, whereas the blue-daiquiri ice sorbet offers a nonfat, nondairy serving of tangy citrus. Guests can load each serving with a medley of toppings, such as fresh-cut fruit, candy pieces, nuts, sprinkles, and brownie crumbles.
At Extreme Pizza, chefs take fresh ingredients and crusts baked in house, and turn them into never-before-seen pizza creations crowned with toppings such as mandarin oranges, black beans, and spicy tandoori sauce. Guests sink their teeth into regular, wheat, or gluten-free pies, and can eat at the restaurant or order their pies to go, and bake them at home. Toasty calzones, subs piled high with fillings, and sweet slices of cheesecake complete the menu.
