In Moab for a few days and tried Zax one night. Every where was busy and they had a steady stream of diners. The wait for seating was about 20 minutes. We had salad and individual pizzas. They had a good size and fresh salad bar. Their pizza was okay (not sure they put any sauce on it) it was... More

Better late than never because we were there last July. ZAX is the perfect place to stop after a hot day of touring around the sights in Moab. The beer was cold, the ribs were fantastic and our waitress Angel was terrific. Definitely a "don't miss" place.

Watched the sunset at Dead Horse Point State and got to the restaurant at about 8:30PM. The place was nearly packed with patrons. Our group ordered a couple of pizzas and us guys had a couple of Draft Polygamy Porters. The beer, pizza and ambience was excellent. The staff was busy but took a little time to make us feel...

Heavy travel day so glad we ended up here. So glad the server was attentive and helped me out on the cocktail front. Lovin' tequila shorties now. Zaks burger probably one of the best burgers ever (and that's not a description we use lightly). Loved the Cobb salad too, it was a massive portion.
