“Chipotle knockoff? Yes, but better!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Very reasonably priced. We were stunned by the line at 1:30, which moved a bit slowly--thus only 4 instead of 5 stars. Prices are great, menu is HUGE (which slows things down). Green chile pork was the best. If you need a quick meal, you will glad you tried Zia.

“Local version of Chipolte Mexican Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The food was tasty and healthy. Service was quick. Food is prepared (similar style to Chipolte chain), as you progress down a cafeteria type line and make your choices and preferences, with the sever. You are eating well in less than 10 minutes! Warning: the line can be long because this place is so popular. Avoid rush hour dining or be prepared to wait an extra minute to two.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This place was really tasty! The prices were reasonable, and the food is fantastic. Same idea as Chipotle, but much, much better quality food with more variety, My only complaint is seating. They are very popular, so there is a large group of people standing around with their food at lunchtime, just waiting for a table to open up. Time to expand!
