UPDATE: Zaxby's

Posted By on Thu, Dec 4, 2008 at 4:44 PM

ZAXBY’S While the appearance of yet another fast food restaurant in the Little Rock/North Little Rock market usually isn't much to crow about, we'll make an exception in the case of Zaxby's. While we were thoroughly ready to be underwhelmed — most of the menu is chicken; chicken wings, chicken strips, chicken with chicken and chicken — Zaxby's turns out to be a really quick place for a nice bite. During our visit, we tried the five-piece chicken strip meal ($3.79), with a side of spicy fried mushrooms ($2.99). Both were served with a cup of something called "Zax Sauce" (which tastes something like Thousand Island dressing with a shot of pickle juice… not the highlight of the meal). The chicken strips were very generously sized, with a peppery, herby flour coating. Even better were the fried mushrooms, which were just spicy enough to make them something memorable. A word of warning, however: scarf them up quick. Once they cooled off, the mushrooms went through some kind of horrific transformation, and our little bites of deep-fried bliss turned into something akin to damp circles of sponge dipped in sand. In short, even though Zaxby's is a chain, it's the good kind of chain: Affordable, with a manageably sized menu of nicely-prepared items. Best of all, for well under ten bucks we managed to get a meal that kept us clucking the rest of the day. 208 Brookswood Road. No alcohol. CC $ 833-9777 LD daily.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
