Here's a scratcher I found in a box in my garage. It's McDonald's Easy Pickin's Quiz, where you match a question against multiple choice answers. If you guess correctly, then you scratch off one of six boxes to reveal a prize. Here you can see I won a regular order of fries. It is a crime that these fries have gone uneaten for 30 years (the contest was in 1980). I also neglected to take advantage of the Wherehouse music coupon good for $2 off either a Smokey & The Bandit 2 or Xanadu soundtrack.
It's hard to read the fine print here, but the game was somewhat lame now that I read it: "Breakfast prizes will be awarded only during breakfast hours with the concurrent purchase of a breakfast entree" and "all other McDonald's food prizes will be awarded during dinner hours with the concurrent purchase of a large sandwich." No wonder I didn't redeem - I couldn't drive in 1980 and my mom probably wasn't going to take me to McDonald's just for some free fries at dinner. By the way, one of the large sandwiches that qualifies is the "Chopped Beefsteak Sandwich." What happened to that?!
Still, I miss contests like this. I am always happy when the Monopoly game rolls around. There is something satisfying about the potential for instant wins, akin to the thrill of lottery tickets. McDonald's - BRING BACK GAMES LIKE THESE.
Zaxby's is a regional fast food chicken chain with over 500 stores in 11 states. Founded in Georgia in 1990, Zaxby's focuses on fresh chicken items (grilled and fried).
I enjoyed my visit to Zaxby's. The staff was friendly and the food was served hot. The menu entirely made up of chicken items, with a focus on chicken breast sandwiches, wings and strips. I opted for the Cajun Club, a hearty meal with a large white meat breast, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a sturdy bun. The "basket" I ordered came with crinkle fries, a welcome sight. The soda fountain even had crushed ice, my favorite kind.
Next time you find yourself in the south and are hankerin' for a quick chicken snack, bypass that other southern chicken juggernaut and try this down home fast food treat.
I knew about this small chain as being mostly concentrated in the midwest. Imagine my surprise then when I happened to drive by one right here in Arizona! While Culver's is known for their Frozen Custard and ButterBurgers, I skipped dessert and just gave the Original ButterBurger with Cheese a try.
The burger was flavorful, with a flame-grilled patty that tasted like something you'd grill yourself during the Fourth of July. Fresh toppings, a decent bun. I liked it.
I decided to bypass the fries, even though they were crinkle, and give the onion rings a try. These were crisp and delicious. They are thin "beer batter" style and there were plenty in the bag to share.
Mrs. Fast Food Source tried the tuna sandwich. I am not a fish lover, but she said it was good. She liked the Texas Toast style bread and shredded lettuce.
Warning: Culver's menu is not that complicated, but the ways in which you can place an order are. You can order individual sandwiches, make your own value basket, or order a smaller SnackPak meal. This makes for more menu-staring for the uninitiated. Come prepared by viewing the menu here first.
