“Excellent Mex/Southwestern in West Asheville”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Zia serves Mexican food but what sets it apart are the wonderful sauces and salsas (and Margarita's).
The enchiladas in particular comes with a choice of two sauces, red or verde, or you can get both, which I did. It really is excellent, and the salsa that comes with the chips (free - how about that) is outstanding. And someone comes around and keeps filling up the salsa dish.
Margarita's are also excellent.
Great value for the buck.

“Very good and great selection”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Good tacos! They have a great selection and allow you to mix however you please. Good drinks and frozen adult beverages as well. The service is decent but friendly enough to make you feel welcome. We got there and they were not very busy but within a half hour they were packed. It is a popular hang out and I can see why. The food is really good.

“Good food and away from the downtown crowds.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Stopped in after we were unable to find parking downtown. Parked in lot right next to restaurant. Good food, prices very good, fast service. Its a hang out for the locals it appears. Chips were great and good strong margarita was made. Give it a try and help a local owner. We found it via TripAdvisor too.

“Perfect Dinner”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I took my family, a party of 14, out to Zia's for dinner. I had called in advance so they knew we were coming and were set up and well prepared for our arrival. The staff was very attentive from the moment we arrived, always friendly and professional. I know how difficult it can be to handle a large party on a busy Friday night, they handled it with ease. The food was superb as always and very well presented. This was an excellent dining experience and I highly recommend this restaurant if you find yourself hungry and in West Asheville.
