Awesome Burgers
Reviewer: Paul from Newbury Park, CA
We took a group here for my wife's birthday sort of as a joke and some bowling. The package included food and it was it was unbelievably good. Several of us had the burger and agreed it was the best restaurant burger we have had in years. The patty was large, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The buns were of terrific quality. Hard to get carried away for a burger, but this place was incredible. Highly recommended.


KEEP THE GREAT JOB

AWESOME


Good times and food in Goleta!
Reviewer: Charlotte from Goleta
So here's the thing with Zodos...the food is great and even though the wait staff is young and sometimes it can be very busy (depending in what game is on) the service is 5 star ALWAYS! The drinks are stiff and delicious and not overpriced and they always make me the best raspberry Stoli martini! The chili and chili dog are sublime, garlic and Cajun fries are great, burgers are big and juicy, salads fresh. The only things I would change are the boneless chicken Buffalo strips are way too salty! The clam chowder needs less potato and more clams and celery and neefs to be thicker. Although the pizzas are good, they need more toppings and less cheese. These are constructive criticisms made with care and love for Zodos! After dinner my family and I played a few games of pool... Good times in Goleta!

Really good food!
Reviewer: Hugh Mandeson from Goleta, Ca
I've been coming here since it opened and I have never been disappointed. The club sandwich may be the best in town, it's generous and includes avocado. The chicken club also hits the spot. I love the sliders and the burgers are great too. A real surprise is the soups, all made from scratch. I adore the garlic fries, they have every beer you can imagine. I still need to try the pizza but I hear it's very good. Service varies but everyone is very nice. Sometimes it takes a while for the food but it is always worth it. No more jokes about bowling alley food!


A place to eat in Goleta...FINALLY!!
Reviewer: charlotte from Goleta
We love to take the kids to Z's (even if we don't bowl) The wood burning oven turns out fabulous pizzas, the burgers are superb and the chili is NOT to be missed! The waitstaff is actually properly trained, in fact the service is better than most upscale places! And there is a bar.......

This place is a lot of fun! They have pretty good bar food and a great happy hour. The service has always been polite and the bowling is so much fun!


overall satisfaction with food and service...
Reviewer: Laura from goleta, CA
I like that it can be sit down at a booth, bar or food by the lane...service is good...and atmosphere encourages great fun, especially when bowling and they bring a sampler platter with yummy coconut shrimp to you at lane ...great food and drinks...like the green monster.


Great place for appetizers and a beer
Reviewer: Nicole from Santa Barbara, CA
Z's bowling is great but this is a food review so I'll stick to that. Their food is pretty typical for a bar/taphouse but their service is outstanding. The bartenders are always polite and cooperative, I've seen them put up with some annoying drunks and people who were underage who tried to sneak a beer. I love going to sit and relax, enjoy a few fried appetizers and drink a nice cold beer on tap. Give this place a try if you haven't already, it's a nice alternative to the club scene downtown.


Good food
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
Twice I have eaten here it has been very good. If you have a discount card its buy one get one free so I ended up with two large pizzas for $20. Pizza was very good, crust excellent.
