We got food at Zax on our first night in Moab. Even though they forgot our soup on our order, the food was good. The place was busy and has some really cool photos of arches and other art on the walls that highlight the beauty of the area.

After a big day in Arches National park we decided to dine at Zax's. Restaurant was very busy but they managed to find a table for two. We ordered a pizza and salad. Both were good and very filling. A couple of beers and two very good margarita's finished our night perfectly. The service was good but this is a... More

Simple basic American Family dinner food with reasonable Steaks and side dishes. Tasty dessert apple clubber and ice cream. Think twice before choosing salad + soup + pizza buffet deal as it seems quality is not at it's top option.

Located in the center of town. A fun kind of pub atmosphere. The service was fine and the waiter nice. The food was good enough. Seemed like a reliable and descent food choice for the Moab.

We spent Thanksgiving camping in Moab and came into town to have TG dinner at Zaks (a longtime favorite). The restaurant was packed, but only had a 30 minute wait. The food was pretty good considering how many people they must have served that night, but what we'll remember for years to come is our server, Tara. She absolutely made... More

Pizza was fresh and tasty and a variety of toppings kept arriving. Salad bar was basic and soup was rather gelatinous. Great family destination.

My wife and I both said the same thing about our dishes. They're good, but certainly not close to the best we've had. Nothing seemed to be made in-house, which is not always a bad thing, but it can keep you from being a cut above. Our service was good. It was fast and courteous. We got in there just... More

Zax was within walking distance of our hotel and had gluten free options available. Pizza was good and I had leftovers to take hiking with us the next day.

After a hard day of mtn biking Zax has what I need to top up the tank. Their pizzas are hot and varied. If you don't see what you like they will make one to your specs. The salad bar is full of choices so there's something for everyone. We had the beer and cheddar soup the day we ate... More
