One thing we absolutely LOVE about Zaxby’s is their Zax Sauce. It’s a creamy seasoned sauce for dipping your chicken and fries. It’s the BEST. My recipe is the closest I’ve found to a homemade version. Many readers have tried it and loved it, too!

Zaxby’s is a favorite fried chicken fast food restaurant here in the South. When we moved to Mississippi, we lived just down the road from a Zaxby’s and ate there once a week. We found a way for our family of three (at the time) to eat for $10, including chicken tenders, fries and a drink for all. It was a treat.

When Judah was just two years old, he didn’t eat much of his sauce so we would trick and switch our package out with his. It went something like this: “Judah, look at that thing over there!” He would turn his head, and we would quickly swap our package of Zax Sauce that was half eaten with his newly opened pack. He never noticed! We laugh about this story with him today.

🧾 Grocery List

When we moved to a different town, Zaxby’s was no longer just down the street so I learned to make Zax Sauce at home by whipping up just a few staple pantry ingredients.

Gather these ingredients:

  • Mayonnaise (I love Duke’s)
  • Ketchup
  • Garlic powder
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Black pepper
  • Seasoned salt (such as Lawry’s)

Zaxby’s restaurants are starting to spread to locations as far north as Indiana, so if you haven’t tried it out yet, go for it. And when you do, order an extra Zax sauce because you will want more than one pack. Trust me.
