Some salad and chicken restaurant, that actually looked prety good.  Something me AND the Skerlette might like.  So, I pop onto their website, thinking this might be a place to try out.  It didn't look like a typical local commercial.  I figured it was a national chain.

It's only in the South!  So, why the monkey-piss are they advertising to ME?   Nice to know some random restaurant in places like Mannville, Texas, and Ooltewah,Tennessee, has the funds to broadcast nationally.
 
Weird.

You forgot Texarkana, Arkansas.
 
Also, isn't Arizona technically in the South?  I think they may be getting confused on their definition of 'south'.
 
Either that, or it's a ploy to get you to move near their latest restaraunt.
 
A conspiracy, I tells ya!  A conspiracy! *froth*

I don't think you are missing anything. All 4 times I've been in a Zaxby the food was tasteless.
A+ for cleanliness however!

We had Sonic ads for years before ONE opened in the Portland metro area last year.

Now we keep having these Dave and Busters ads. My friend and I were pretty excited, "HEY It's like a Chuck E. Cheese with BOOZE!!"  and then we checked and the closest ones are in central california.
Idiots

SouthWEST, if you please!  (Although we have a large quota of rednecks, the inbreeding is rarer, here. LOL)

 

Actually, we had one minor little skirmish here, during the Civil War.  A couple of patrols bumped into each other...apparently, AZ was considered nominally CSA.

 

ANYWAY.....still doesn't excuse 'em!

Skerl,

You actually got a response from Zaxby's - it arrived in my e-mail inbox:

Quote Hi Nathan, I saw your comments about the Zaxby’s commercial you saw. What city and state were you when you saw it on TV? Zaxby’s commercials should only be airing in Zaxby’s markets. I could help you find one near you, because the food IS great.

Thanks for your time.
Nicole

^^^I agree you totally should.
Any company paying that much attention is worth giving attention back to.

Such power Nathan! There is someone in HR at my work who part of their job description is do searches online for mentions of our property and highlight, dispute or comment on any posts or articles etc.. I always kind of made fun of that but alas it seems to work.

Here in Massachusetts up until like this month we only had like 3 auto insurers to chose from.  Allstate and Geico weren't inculded.  Yet we had to endure incesant ads from both companies.
