“Really Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Great meal and really nice staff. Perfect for kids after the Apollo theater show. Only downside is it was Byob. - but that can easily be solved!

“Great pre-theatre restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We found the restaurant choices very limited near the Apollo Theater, but were pleasantly surprised at the food quality and affordable prices at Zig Zag. We enjoyed two different very fresh and flavorable salmon dishes ($13-$16) and enjoyed his SW chicken sandwich. The wonderful warm chocolate chip cookies were a perfect ending. The decor is pretty basic, but the waitstaff is very prompt and attentive. Although we were initially disappointed in the lack of choices, we were glad a nice saleslady at Victoria's Closet a few doors down recommended Zig Zag as the best food nearby. We were not disappointed in the end and really felt it was a great value and had a varied menu from sandwiches, entree salads to well prepared twists on basic entrees.

Happened upon while driving around. Good find. Not particularly decorated in an appealing way. Food was tasty. Good variety on menu. Recommended.

“nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Service was very attentive, and they were willing to open early for our group (just stumbled across this in the area). Fries tasted alright but the burger was pretty bland. The bun was too bready overall.

“Friendly BYOB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This small restaurant is close to several theaters. The service is very friendly. The menu is widely varied. Everything we've ever eaten there has been very good. It is a great value, especially because you can being your own bottle of wine. Reservations are accepted. Ask for a table by the window and watch the people going by. Joy!
