(Chicken) Shit’s getting real, now.

Shot.

Chaser.

Who’da thunk it would be two Cali kids pushing Southern chicken?

(Also, note that JT’s reppin’ the “G” in that pic.)

    No – No, Hog, you got that wrong – white meat is good for you – its all that BBQ that will get you in trouble.

  3. Isn’t Zaxby’s a supporter of Georgia sports, so the AA approved of the use of the logo?

    Good for JT!

        I would imagine that use of the logo is going to be approved for all athletes regardless of whether or not the company is a supporter of Georgia athletics. I know that Ohio State said in early August that they would allow it if an athlete opts-in to a group licensing program with a certain company (which also allows the athletes to share in profits on jersey sales with not only their number but also their name on them). On the long drive to move my kid into college this past weekend, I am almost positive I heard on ESPNU radio that Alabama was going to do the same because the discussion even mentioned that it was only a matter of time before Georgia and Clemson followed suit to keep up in the recruiting arms race.

        But you can load up of fresh fruit (even if it is picked green), yogurts and tofu. But can you get muscadine wine out there? I see where some people are growing muscadines commercially in California.

          Are you sure? I ate at Cane’s once (not a fan of white meat overall) and the origin story I read said he went to school in Louisiana (sort of hinted it was LSU).

            Marketing. In Lousyana they care about fish/crawfish/shrimp/sausage/chicken slow cooked in their gumbo/jambalaya. They don’t fry chicken unless they can’t have shrimp in their spaghetti. Ask me how I know, my wife is from Houma.

    I was just reading about how Goldman Sachs paid around 1 billion for nearly half of Zaxby’s…If I am understanding everything correctly.

    I was surprised that there was that much of Zaxby’s left to sell. How they were able to grow to 900 stores without selling part of the business seems like an interesting story.

    Great that Daniels is able to get this deal. And love the Zaxby’s success story as well.

      I’ll eat Zaxby’s while travelling on Sunday because those Baptofacists at Chik fil A are closed. I always ask for extry Zax sauce. I use it as a solvent for caked on bearing grease and carbon deposits on my rifle bolts and carriers. I hear it’s edible, but so is Froglube and I don’t eat that shit either.

        If you had been closer to the Navy you might have heard of rumors about Torpedo fuel being poured through a loaf of bread. Or something, damn weirdos.

          I had a friend retired from the Navy who spent most of his career on subs. His drink of choice was that white label half gallon that simply said Vodka that he purchased from the BX. Knowing him, I’d believe just about anything.

          I feel I can give the Baptists a hard time as that’s what is stamped into two of my dog tags along with my name and A+. My third tag said, “If you find my body Fuck You.” Some uptight, offended, regulation spouting Jumpmaster confiscated that tag. He probably wears it on the same chain as a gold Cross every Sunday morning while attending service at the First Self Righteous Church in Pascagoula.

    If Zaxby’s had biscuits instead of those stale ass pieces of Texas toast, they’d be the best fast food restaurant period. Also, why are they still selling cole slaw? I don’t know anyone who gets the cole slaw. The standard Zaxby’s order is 6 fingers, a Coke, no slaw, extra fries. Man, they have great fries. You add a biscuit to that meal instead of the Texas Toast, and you’re talking the best option for your money out there.

    Zaxby’s is now outed as sponsoring Kirby’s bagmen
    He’ll quit school after the Fall semester
    He’ll never be seen in class on campus
    UGA is now a professional sports team

  27. As a Bulldog living in exile in Los Angeles, I can confirm that Californians know absolutely nothing about fried chicken. I had breakfast at a place in Santa Monica on Saturday and the dish was bacon, grits and two eggs. But in order to California-ize it, that became: Fried lardons with polenta and a gently poached egg.

    About 20 years ago in Bluefield Bay, Jamaica I ate fried chicken cooked in an iron skillet with Crisco. A real yardbird, slightly tough and a bit stringy, but a flavor I hadn’t experienced since my teens. Franchise chicken joints are all a distant second to that.
