Why it's amazing: Fried chicken is nothing new, especially in the fast-food world. But add a little creamy, zippy Zax sauce to the mix and you'll soon be swearing off every other chicken joint along the interstate. Zaxby's might have begun as a humble Georgia outpost, but these days the chicken finger powerhouse is quietly cornering the ever-contentious Southern fast-food market. The menu is sizable to say the least -- wings and "Fingerz," sandwiches, "Zalads," and the almighty "Zax Pak" (the chain's version of the classic family-sized combo bucket). Throw in a lineup of 100% deep-fried, 100% gut-busting "Zappetizers" like spicy mushrooms, crispy onion rings, and gooey cheddar cheese bites, and domination appears imminent. Oh yeah, there's also something called a birthday cake milkshake, which, with cake batter ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, and chocolate whipped cream, is basically Funfetti in a glass. No biggie.
