It might not be my place to tell you what to do, but I’m going to anyways. You need to join Zaxby’s new loyalty program. Not only does it mean cheap food down the line, but you’ll get a free Big Zax Snak just for downloading the app. 

The Southern-style fast food joint is upgrading its mobile experience for loyal customers with a total revamp. 

“Zaxby’s has passionate fans and now we have an industry-leading rewards program just for them. Online orders, in-person purchases, and in-app actions turn into points, redeemable for ‘Rewardz,'” Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Patrick Schwing said in a press release. “With the new app and loyalty program, we want to make it even easier for our customers to enjoy our products while racking up the rewards. To celebrate the launch, new and existing loyalty members who download or update our app will get a FREE Big Zax Snak. We are offering our most famous meal to recognize just how much we appreciate our loyal fans.”

On Tuesday, Zaxby’s announced the restructuring, which will allow customers to earn more easily online and in stores by converting spent dollars right into “Rewardz” points. For every $1 spent, you’ll get 10 points.

Customers can sign up online at or download the app directly. You’ll get the freebie whether it’s a first download or you already have the app. The Big Zax Snak features three Chicken Fingerz, Texas Toast, and Zax Sauce with crinkle-cut fries, ranch, and a small Coca-Cola Freestyle drink.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
