Zaxby’s adds Fried Pickles as permanent menu item

Limited-time option now long-term selection at stores systemwide

Zaxby’s returned its Fried Pickles to stores systemwide, announcing the popular menu item will become permanent. The chicken QSR chain offers an order of them as a snack or side item served with a sandwich or meal.

“Fried Pickles are a Southern staple that’s having a bit of a moment,” said Stephanie Gamble, vice president of menu innovation at Zaxby’s. “Our customers have always loved Zaxby’s cornmeal-dusted crispy version paired with our creamy, cool ranch sauce. It’s the perfect summer snack, and now we’ll have it all year round.”

Lightly dusted in a cornmeal batter, the pickles come from crinkle-cut thin slices of dill pickles that are fried to a golden brown. Restaurants serve each order with a ranch sauce that is a blend of fresh buttermilk and herbs.

The Zaxby’s Fried Pickles addition to the permanent menu follows the debut of the Signature Club Sandwich. The latter is Zaxby’s take on the traditional club sandwich. To the Signature Sandwich, the Athens, Ga.-based restaurant chain adds two slices of bacon and American Cheese to make the club version. Plus, guests can select the dressing: Zax sauce or Spicy Zax sauce.
