Zax – Moab

Moab is a pretty small town. You can pretty much walk up and down the main strip in no time. We tried to go to this one restaurant, but we could not find it and our GPS wasn’t much help. So after driving around for awhile, we came back to the hotel and walked to Zax. There’s indoor seating as well as pseudo-outdoor seating. It’s a casual restaurant that seems pretty good for family dining.
S got one of the specials, which was a mahi mahi entree with mango salsa. It also came with grilled veggies on a stick, garlic bread, and baked potato. This wasn’t particularly interesting to me. The fish didn’t seem that fresh and the mango salsa just wasn’t right. I found the baked potato to be the best part.
I went with one of the regular deals which is all-you-can-eat pizza, salad, and soup. There’s something I’ve got to like in there, right? Well, the pizza was definitely the weakest. I think if the pizza was actually hot, it would have been ok and almost good, but when it’s lukecold, it’s pretty blah. I think I wouldn’t have ever cared for their dough though, so the heat probably really didn’t matter. The salad bar reminded me of a really simple buffet salad bar, kind of like the one my family would take us to when we were young and we ate at the Rustler every weekend. But you know what? I was a big fan of this salad bar. The veggies were fresh even though completely not fancy, they had hard-boiled egg and dressings that I liked. I love any salad bar that has chopped up hard-boiled egg.
But it was even better that the salad bar itself was in a canoe. Yes, a canoe. You know I can’t make this stuff up.
It was pretty obvious that the soup came out of a can, but I also did not mind that. Sometimes you just want soup, and to me, most canned soups are just fine. This was a beef vegetable and it was just fine by me! The server was really nice and enthusiastic, but I’m not gonna lie to you, I really wasn’t crazy about any of the food. I would have to say this was one of the not-so-great meals of the entire trip.
