The night before we had eaten at the the Desert Bistro and spent way too much money. I now wanted a simple meal and reasonably priced. Zaks had a salad bar with soup so I could eat as much(or as little) as I wanted. The soup was chicken tortilla and very flavorful. Our sever, Heidi, was very congenial and fun... More

They have an all you can eat pizza buffet which looked great. But we had a gourmet pizza and ribs. The menu is very diverse. Busy place but you can wait in the roomy bar which has a good beer selection and sports tv's. Right downtown

I will start with the good because I am generally a positive person; They made a great martini; only $7.50 and the service was friendly and good. That might be enough for some but when my "grey" ribs showed up.....ughh! As soon as they put the grey meat in front of me, and my husbands meal in front of him-... More

Dinner was good! Our server was friendly! It was crowded and noisy but not too much! We sat in the bar area where the TVs were tuned to the latest football game. Recommended!

You can have a good pizza , lots of types and i am italian.Pizza is my favourite meal. But my advice is not to take "ALL YOU CAN EAT" because the pizza are full of things and after 3 slices you are full.Take a pizza for 2 people and you can eat and take home what you do not eat.You... More

Received recommendation for Zax from folks at Moab Rustic Inn, just a block away and a nice place to stay during our 4 days in Moab. Ate at Zax 3 times. Terrific burgers and pizza (ordered specialty pizza off the menu and not the pizza buffet). Servers in the bar area, KC, Andrea and Dana provided great recommendations for food/beer... More

Service was slow. Food was okay. Nothing exceptional, nothing terrible. We considered sitting outside, but the traffic was very loud. Probably would not eat there again.

We ate at Zaks three times during our stay in Moab. The food was very good, the atmosphere was fun and friendly. Our server Tara Bolos was very welcoming and extremely helpful, not only with food choices, but also with what to see and do during our stay. We went back two other times because of her.

Thank Sharon C
