We ordered for pick up as Zia is always busy around dinner. I ordered a rice bowl with chicken, the chicken was rubbery and over cooked, the rice was both under cooked and over cooked.

I have been a fan since my first time in I think 2008. I have been back many times. I love the Baja style fish tacos and the hottest salsa. After moving away and back again it's still the same great food and service.

Wonderful place to eat with super staff. Reasonably priced, but the quality will remind you of a "higher end" restaurant. Nothing but wonderful comments from the locals on a regular basis..

That is all we've had here, but we've had a lot of different ones. Delicious ! Maybe at some point we'll try something else.

Could have doubled up on the tortillas, as most places do. But fish tacos were absolutely wonderful.
