If you're a chicken lover then you know all about this chain. Zaxby's in Hartselle on US-31 has been open a little under two years -- but it's certainly a crowd favorite.

Employees say they love their community and what they do. You can find yummy chicken tenders, wings and hearty 'zalads' on the menu.

One of their employees -- Matthew Keith -- was deemed Employee of the Month from a pool of employees from 12 other area locations. Keith keeps things moving smoothly and swiftly in the kitchen.
