Why Monday Is The Best Day To Eat At Moe's Southwest Grill

No one likes waking up early on a Monday to start another hard week at work. Guinness World Records even announced on its Twitter that the organization is officially declaring Monday "the worst day of the week." There's even a term for the anxiety people feel before Monday — "the Sunday Scaries." These are the feelings of anxiety caused by the impending work week (via Cleveland Clinic). In order to help ease some of those Monday blues, Moe's Southwest Grill has an exclusive deal available only on Mondays.

The restaurant chain, which serves up Tex-Mex-inspired flavors, first opened in 2000, per its website. Since then, it has expanded to 687 locations across the United States, and its burritos, bowls, and tacos are beloved by many. The menu even offers tofu and veggie filling options for those following vegan and vegetarian diets, so everyone can get in on this exclusive offering.

This deal comes around once a week

Every Monday, Moe's Southwest Grill offers the "Moe Monday" special, according to Eat Drink Deals. You will need to be a Moe's Rewards member to be eligible for the deal, but the good news is that the program is completely free to sign up for! Moe's Rewards members can claim the deal at most Moe's locations at the beginning of the week. For a discounted price, customers can claim the main entree, chips, a side of salsa, and a 22-ounce drink.

According to Moe's menu, the deal covers a few different entrees. The Homewrecker, Chicken Club, Spicy Chicken, and Steak and Potato varieties are all offered in both burrito and bowl forms and are eligible for this deal. If you prefer your food to be a little more customized, you also have the option to choose a basic burrito or bowl base to add your own ingredients.

The restaurant has its own rewards program

The Moe's Rewards program might be especially great on Mondays, but it also comes with a few other perks. According to the Moe's website, every new sign-up gets you a free cup of Moe's famous queso – made from jalapenos and a three-cheese blend. And, on your birthday, you'll get a free burrito to celebrate your special day. For every other day of the year, you can rack up rewards points from your purchases. Each dollar spent earns you one point, and every 100 points will be converted into a $10 credit for your next order.

If you're willing to wait for the event each year, Moe's also offers a pretty sweet deal on Cinco de Mayo. In fact, the restaurant calls its celebration "Cinco de Moe's." The details of the celebration change from year to year, with 2022 offering five times reward points for every purchase made that day. Plus, a few lucky visitors could win a free t-shirt.
