Zaxby’s is a pretty popular fast food restaurant chain that is predominantly found in the south east. They specialize in chicken fingers and wings, as well as salads. Aside from salads, I was not expecting to find too many vegetarian or vegan options at this store, but I was wrong. They actually have a large variety of vegetarian and plant-based choices.

The biggest surprise came due to the options they have for vegans.

You can always edit the items that you order, such as ordering a sandwich without the meat and replace them with sides and vegetables, like what I like to do often with french fries in my sandwiches. Those do not tend to be filling, but the options are there if you do not want to go without. So maybe go and try out some Zaxby’s?
