My family was passing through Saturday evening on the way back to the Chicago suburbs and found Z Best Cafe on our GPS and expected to find a typical small town cafe/diner where we could get a simple meal..................boy was I pleasantly wrong.
The hostess politely told us that the earliest available table was at 7:30 (1.5 hrs. later!!) As my wife took my 2 oldest kids to the restroom I began searching my phone for the nearest McDonalds when the hostess informed me that we could sit at 1/2 of a current customer's table that wasn't being used. Having worked in other restaurants in the past, that just doesn't happen.
Needless to say, the service and friendliness of the staff was bar none. The family that we sat next to, literally shoulder-to-shoulder, were kind to my 3 kids and provided us with kind conversation.
Now, to the food. I would drive from the western suburbs to Sheffield (nearly 2 hrs.) to eat at Z Best Cafe. They provided my kids with a makeshift kids meals of freshly breaded "chicken strips," seasoned fries and Mac & Cheese. My wife had coconut shrimp that rivaled anything around here, and I had an amazing stuffed pork loin that melted in my mouth.
