Zaxby's Coming To Washington

Get your appetites ready; Zaxby's is coming to the city of Washington in Beaufort County!

Zaxby's announced on Facebook Tuesday that they have officially purchased property for a future restaurant in Washington.

The new Zaxby's will be on Highway 17 next to the McDonald's in front of the Walmart. Currently, that's where the self service car wash is, which will be torn down as construction is expected to begin in September.

Officials are hoping the restaurant, known for its chicken and milk shakes, will be open before Christmas.
