Zax is located in Moab and situated on corner on Souh Main Street. It was a recommended restaurant so we decided to give it a try. We had no issue with parking on the street, but did not see a parking lot anywhere specifically designated for the restaurant. One on the side street was specifically designated as not for restaurant... More

We stop in after every river trip. Good pizza, salad bar and soup. It's quick and reasonably priced. :)

Restaurants seem to close early in Moab. If you arrive in late evening your choices get narrowed. But Zax is there for you, right downtown, with good food and friendly service.

We looked on their website to order take out since we figured a pizza joint on a Saturday night would be busy. Indeed it was, the wait was 25 minutes at 6:30 with parties of all sizes waiting. We had the pepperoni and sausage with a half of mushroom (chopped from a can) on a homemade, but very average thin... More

2nd time here. Love the pizza/salad/soup bar idea. The price is very fair. Nice environment and gets crowded during peak season. My only complaint was service. It was very poor on this visit. How can you have such poor service when you are doing the buffet? Took me 20 mins to get a root beer refill. The food was very... More

Perfect for my three young boys and I with the salad bar and pizza buffet! Our service was speedy and attentive for sure. I actually left a not for our server because that was the best service we have had in a long time! Totally worth the money!

We were in the park all day so skipped lunch. We were hungry early so stopped at Zax's for pizza and beer. It was delicious We sat at the bar and were served quickly We were so glad we got there early because the line was out the door by the time we left

Zax is a very popular place for good reason. It provides an abundance of atmosphere, great service and great food. We ordered a Margherita pizza and a Tree Hugger pizza. Both were absolutely terrific. Shortly after we began eating, we noticed a steady stream of patrons heading for the all-you-can-eat pizza bar! This gives you essentially the same cost for... More

The wood-fired pizza we had looked like something in a cooking magazine and tasted even better. it was a bit on the pricey side (at about $20 for a large), but the fresh toppings and soft and chewy crust made it worthwhile. Service was good. We ate outside on a sunny day and it was a great experience.

We went to lunch twice and dropped by the bar on a separate occasion. One of the few restaurants that has a bar (don't have to order food). Food was good. Service was good. Reservations not needed. Popular. Would definitely go back.
