Went to celebrate my youngest son's birthday. We like the fact that you can customize your meal -- each of us had something different, but all were excellent. Sometimes service can be slow, but since every meal is custom made, this is to be expected.

Great variety of lunch options here in a quick, tasty, reasonably-priced local place. It had been a while since my last trip to The Za's up on N. Neil Street, so I tried this one on W. Springfield. Exactly the same format and menu.

We frequently stop at Za's when passing by Champaign on road trips, as it is quite near the intersection of I-57 and I-72. Not much else in the immediate vicinity, so I am glad for something different. When you walk in the front door, there are slips that you fill out for customized sandwiches, salads, pastas and pizzas. As such,... More

Purchased two bowls of soup that were listed on the menu @ $6.00 each. The register receipt I received indicated "2 soup bowl 6.00 = $13.00" I questioned the cashier about the discrepancy and he could not explain it. I emailed the website and the response was that they had changed menu prices several "months" earlier and some old menus... More

We took our granddaughter to Za's on Springfield for spaghetti. I would like to start out by saying we had no issue with any of our food. None. However at the counter a man was mopping the floor and continued to mop the entire floor ahead of us. Did not understand this at all. Very risky business. My wife had... More

Love the food - sort of fast food but on real plates and with real utensils. A bit pricey for what it is, and seems like it could use a good cleaning. Tables are sticky and the straw dispenser is rather grimy. I feel just a bit offput by the grime and having to clear my own plate.

Za's has great salads, and you can even choose your own ingredients if you want. The soups are also good, as well as the cheesecake and pie!

When you first arrive, you're presented with a choice of menu. Grab the one that looks the most interesting (pizza, pasta, salad, combo, etc). I always go for the combo, which gives me the choice to select 2 or 3 items for my meal (half pizza, small salad, half sandwich, cup of soup). There are quite a number of salad,... More

Great quality overall. Love the tomato basil soup. Thin crusts pizza are cheap, freshly made, and feature great toppings. Pasta is pretty good. I like mamma Mia the pasta with a combo of meats & rosa sauce. Much more fresh & homemade than fazoli's or other franchise Italian.

Thank Andrea E
