“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Nice place with decently priced beer (buckets of beer was a great deal). We were there late in the afternoon, not too busy or noisy. Friendly service.

“More to Zola than meets the eye.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Upon entry you will note it is a quaint room with occasional live music and a century old mirrored and wooden bar against the wall. The staff is unusually cheerful and knowledgeable about their menu offerings. The chili is one of the best ever and the grilled cheese is perfecto. Will return to try their other offerings. Smoking is permitted.

“yum! great burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

I went to Zola with my boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The service was a little slow, but that's only because there was only one guy waiting tables and working the bar, so considering that, he always made sure our drinks were topped off and our food came out pretty quickly, once we finally got the order in.

And the food... DELICIOUS! I was so so so pleasantly surprised with how delicious, tender, juicy and well seasoned the burger was. We also tried the cajon cheese fries and they were also wonderful. The fries were thick, tasted like actual potatoes and fried to perfection. Plus, it was cheap. Less than 7$ for most of the burgers. Can't really beat that!

My only complaint was it was pretty smokey inside -- though we sat outside so it wasn't an issue.
