“Mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

The pizza has a funky after taste. I don't know if it is from the metal cans the get the sauce from or what it is, but there is something weird. The crust is not good either. Salads here are just chunks of iceburg lettuce and a few veggies on top. Overall very uninspired and boring!

“Mr. Z's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

It was good, but not great, yet I hesitate to base an opinion on one experience. Would give it another try on my next visit.

“Do Not Eat Here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Service was okay, but food was the worst. Maybe the locals give it good ratings because they don't know any better? Can't remember when I've have such a bad meal. Ordered a 6" meatball sub - came on a grinder roll, ONE meatball cut into 4 slices with maybe a tablespoon of sauce. Husband ordered a 9" BLT - 2 skinny pieces of bacon.
Dirty tables, dirty glasses.
Seriously - Eat somewhere else. Garbage cans abound - It might be cold, but you'll get more and it's free.

“Great salads and pizzas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011 via mobile

i went to mr. zs for the first time today and i was really pleased. the waitress was nice although she didnt introduce herself and the food was cooked fast. the waitress was nice enough to split up one salad in to different plates for me and my bf. we didnt even ask her to do that. the prices were great, very reasonable. the music was nic and overall atmosphere was great. the only complaint i would have is that they didnt have balsmic dressing and the restaurant itself was kinda boring.

“Nice local place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2009

Right on the corner of routes 62 and 302. The menu has pizza, pasta, grinders, and burgers. There is a nice selection of local beers and some wines. The staff was friendly and competent, but our server was not able to offer much information when we asked questions. The decor is inviting and comfortable, and there are large windows allowing a view of the street outside. It is not a big place, and has limited parking, but you can park on the street instead. The food was pretty good and portions were large. I had the cheese ravioli which came with a salad and garlic bread, and my husband had a grinder. Prices seemed reasonable.
