“Fun and Fresh!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Bar food can be seriously hit or miss but Zim's does a great job of combining a fun atmosphere with delicious flavors. The menu is extensive but not intimidating -- burgers to burritos and even noodle bowls. The portions are generous but the food is fresh and not overly rich--my veggie burrito was full of sautéed veggies with just a little cheese. Yum!

“Love this place”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food and service here are fantastic. We travel a lot and will go out of our way to eat here. The food is tastier than average, beginning with their smoky salsa, their great specials and tonight a new one for us. We shared a Plantain Split. What a wonderful concoction of coconut ice cream, whipped cream, carmel and sweet plantains soaked or rolled in cinnamon topped with kinda glazed pecans. The prices are more than fair for the freshness, service and several on top of everything, walking around, helping out management types, all the time. Safe, family friendly, always a treat to eat here. Makes our top ten or so list of favorites.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Food here is fantastic and the service is always prompt and attentive. We've eaten here many times and we've never had a bad meal. Some local Trinity restaurants should take note of how well Zim Zari's runs and treats its guests!

“How can this be the #2 rated restaurant in NPR?”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The food we had was far from fresh. VERY stale chips with a salsa that no one at our table liked The chicken on my taco salad was a highly processed chicken breast type product that left a bad taste in my mouth.The lettuce in my salad was wilted. My son had a hambuger that was ok-but the cole slaw that came with it tasted like it had been around for a while Regret eating there. The only nice thing I have to say is they have a gluten free menu-
