Good Choice for Moab

Excellent pizza. Burger was good. Soup and Salad bar was very popular but limited in item selections. Excellent and fast service. Great place to have quick dinner after a day at the Arches.

At $13.99, the pizza/salad/soup buffet is way overpriced. 6 varieties of pizza, about 9 different items on the salad bar, and 2 soups isn't what we were expecting. If you are planning on eating six or less slices of pizza, buy them individually at $2.50 each and save yourself a bit. The varieties they did have available were good, creative... More

Average bar/restaurant food. Burgers/fries, salads, sandwiches,etc. Service was very good. Large restaurant. We'd go back.

I was disappointed to find the menu different from what was available on trip advisor. We were seated fairly quickly. The trip to the salad bar left a little lacking with limited selection, but most things were fresh. Food came quickly and was well prepared. Fries were great. Everyone at our table enjoyed their dinner. Do be aware of added... More

I went here during Presidents Day weekend and I CRUSHEDDD their pizza buffet. They have a small salad bar but if you are looking for something to get hot, fast and for only $13 Zax is the place to go!

We had the pizza, salad, and soup buffet and were happy. The honey chicken pizza was a good twist and very good. The salad bar is lacking a bit but the beer cheese soup was great! Pretty good value if you'd like to try many different pizzas but if you can agree on just one you might be better splitting... More

My wife and I stopped in on Presidents Day since our motel gave us a 10% discount coupon. I had the Italian with pesto sauce and it was hot and tasty. The fish as good as well. We would recommend to everyone!
