The second Zaxby’s restaurant in Bossier City is opening on Monday, August 10 at 870 Benton Road.
A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and wings, the new fast casual restaurant will operate 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday andSaturday.
“Because we were born and bred in Bossier, it just made the most sense for us to continue to provide residents here with great food at more locations,” said Steve Watkins, co-owner of the new location. “We have seen such a positive response from the first store that we opened here in May, and hope to continue that at this Benton Road location.”
The new Zaxby’s will be the second in Bossier City and the sixth store in Louisiana. Zaxby’s currently operates more than 685 locations in 16 states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
Zaxby’s provides chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches, salads and more in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Zaxby’s is a pioneer of the quick-casual format, providing services and amenities that fall somewhere between fast food and a sit-down restaurant. At the new restaurant, customers will place their orders at the counter and will be called to pick up their prepared-at-order meals when they are ready.
With seating for 72, the new 3,680-square-foot location will feature Zaxby’s unique interior design — floor-to-ceiling brick walls, with modernized tables and booths, all complemented by an eclectic mix of photography. Zaxby’s also offers drive-thru services to meet the needs of customers on the go.
“For this Bossier City restaurant, we have a great team of more than 40 top-notch associates from the local community that are excited to provide residents with friendly service and a quality product,” said Watkins. “I always say that Zaxby’s is not your daddy’s chicken joint, it’s all chicken-based but with a wider menu variety that offers something for everyone at an affordable price.”
An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s offers prepared-at-order chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads. Zaxby’s most popular items are its hand-breaded Chicken Fingerz and Traditional or Boneless Wings, smothered in a choice of nine sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane. The menu also offers innovative Zappetizers like Tater Chips, Spicy Fried Mushrooms and Fried White Cheddar Bites, as well as a variety of Party Platterz perfect for any family gathering or special occasion.
