A new restaurant opened within the past year in the old Burger King building
on McClintock and Broadway. I've read the reviews, the articles, and the
promotions of this restaurant, and I have to respectfully disagree.
is extremely clean upon entering, the prices are right, and everyone is
friendly; but the quality of the food just isn't there. It's always my
belief that, while a restaurant has to have more than just good food, it
has to at least have good food. The owner claims that almost all of their
ingredients are imported directly from Chicago to maintain authenticity.
This may be true, though I imagine most food in Chicago tastes better
One thing to their credit, though, is that their
french fries and milkshakes are delicious; but one cannot live on fries
and shakes alone. Given the choice, I'll continue to visit their hot dog
neighbor across the street.
Z's, A Chicago Experience, is located
at 2019 S. McClintock Dr. in Tempe.
