I make it to Zak's at least once every visit. I get the buffet most of the time. Plenty of variety, and if they don't have the pizza up that you want, they will make it. go early or expect a wait. A nice patio area when the weather is nice. The Burgers, salads and sandwiches are great too.

Amazing chef salad, and friendly waitress (Duckie) who took the time to tell us about things to do in Moab. We have eaten here twice, and it was great both times.

I love sitting on the patio and people watching. Love the pizza/salad bar. Staff is very friendly. There is never much of a wait either. Love their desserts too!

Had the All-You-Can Eat Special, great variety of pizza, including some pesto options. Salad was minimal, and soup was just OK. Price not bad for a tourist town.

Recommended by hotel staff, excellent pizza & microbrew, below average pasta, average burgers & sandwiches, attentive staff, service a bit slow for non buffet items, we returned a second night because we were exhausted and we already knew what to expect

Once again a good halfway + house while driving to Vail. Yesterday's excellent special was the "Patty Melt' and server Carmin did a terrific job. Also pizza by the slice and salad bar. Rustic environment .. what else? Hello it is Moab.

I had the Hobo beef sandwich. It was super delicious! Service was good and environment was fun. The decor and vibe of the place is good. Menu selection is wide. There is a separate bar and restaurant area.

Loved this little hangout. We went for dinner, drinks, and to watch the Texans play football while we were out of town. Our waiter was so dang funny. The food was really good here. And the ambiance was great for watching sports.

We had just gotten into Moab and sought out a place for lunch-Zax's was the choice. After looking over the menu we opted for the all you can eat buffet, which included soup & salad bar and oven- fired pizza bar! The waiter was great and very attentive. Never have I seen the choices at a pizza buffet such as... More
