We hadn't been to Zaza in a very long time, and definitely loved every bite of the original Cuban we had! The bread is soft and the ingredients fresh and amazing. Service was top notch, and very well priced!

Had lunch here today —2 vaca frite and one pork platter. Food was good. The plaintains were dry to me and hard and the white rice was not fresh it was mushy in the center and hard on the outside. I guess they put it...in a container then flip on the plate for presentation. Food was not piping hot it was little more than lukewarm. Serving size was good. I really enjoyed the black beans they were very good they were seasoned. I may go back if I’m in the area but wouldn’t make it a must do.More

We enjoyed everything we had, it was all flavorful. We ordered beef and chicken empanadas, a Cubano sandwich, mojo chicken, vaca frita, and lechon asado. Sides included roasted potatoes, pinto beans, congri, tostones, fries and salad. Should have skipped the salad as it wasn't much...to be desired but all the other sides were good. The place is kind of small so finding seating for a family of 4 was hard. The price was so-so, 4 of us had meals, drinks and an appetizer for about $74More

We’ve been here many times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and there’s never been a time when it hasn’t been packed. As a result, the restaurant is so noisy. This is fast food, so the menu is simple and pretty good for a fast bite....They have platters which is a choice of meat and 3 sides for around $11. There are also a few sandwiches on Cuban bread to chose from. Breakfast is available all day. Orders are taken at the counter and the staff brings your food to your table. There are small tables inside with and a few outside. It’s located in the Waterford mall close to the movie theater, so parking is ample. Not my favorite Cuban food, but it sure beats a burger joint. I've been working my way down the menu and so far everything has been pretty good. I probably like breakfast the best.More

This location of Zaza isn't much to look at. It is small and crowded without any real decor (unlike a larger, prettier location I've been to). We enjoyed all of the side dishes--entrees come with three. The tostones were huge. We really liked the congri,...maduros, salad, and garlic brown rice. The main dishes were less good. I got the veggie frita, which is supposed to be a vegetarian patty, but I am almost positive it was beef. My non-vegetarian boyfriend also thought it was beef and the wait staff wouldn't tell me what was in it. The sauteed onions on it were good, but the patty was not. My boyfriend got pan seared pescado. He said it was a bit dry and the portion size was very small. A woman at a nearby table got the same dish but her fish was twice the size of his. The quesito, guava con queso pastry, and espresito were all excellent. If I were to go back I would stick to the sides and desserts.More

Guys, thank you so much for all of your kindness, your food is wonderful, people are happy here ! I can tell the locals like it here. People feel at home , From new people to regulars alike . Although Old Cuban Café has been...around since I can remember i think Zaza’s beats even “Abuela’s competition” , the quesitos, coffee, and Cuban sandwiches are wonderful options! I love the old school Cuban music ... sigan echando un pie , zaza’s you’re killing it!More

This is a nice cafe with fresh made tasty Cuban food. The pastries are pretty awesome. Today we ordered casitas and guava y queso pastries. We also ordered the Cuban sandwich and the veggie, egg and queso sandwich. This is a counter service restaurant and...they deliver the food to your table. Tables are fairly plentiful both indoor and out. We will be back!More

I needed a place for breakfast while in town for a meeting. TA nearby came up with ZAZA as a suggestion. Bright cheerful place. Very friendly staff. Had cafe con leche which was excellent. Also had a bacon tomato sandwich with pressed bread. It was...very tasty. Good prices and friendly folks. Glad I found it!More
