Where has this place been all my life. Kids eat free on Saturday's and the food is terrific!
Great pasta, good bread.. very cheap. My kind of lunch spot.
This restaurant is AWESOME! My wife and I went to Biaggi's and they had over an hour wait. We didn't have that long, so we saw the sign for Z'Mariks across the street. We checked it out and loved our experience. The atmosphere is fun, the food is tasty (and there's plenty of it)...and best of all, our bill was tons cheaper than if we would have eaten at Biaggi's. Thanks for a great date-night!
I love the mac and cheese with pulled pork what a treat and enough left over for dinner!! The staff was super friendly when at the last minute I had an office lunch order and they filled it in no time. Not a lot of places would have done that without an extra charge.
No other place like this in Des Moines! My family and I thank you for the great food. I don't know where else you can go get an amazing pasta dish for such an affordable price. Thank you Z'Mariks!
Love it, love it, love it! What a great concept - you guys are great.
Favorites: Pesto! Spicy Peanut! Greek Salad is also fantastic. Friendly staff. Wonderful fresh veggies and warm bread. Make sure to get your own "frequent noodle'r" card because you will be hooked once you go.
My wife and I went to Z'Mariks yesterday for dinner and we LOVE it! We heard another one is opening in Clive in April...can't wait! Thanks for the great food ~ Jake
This is a great simple place. The menu is limited, but all options are made extremely well. For around $5 you'll get a bowl of some sort of noodles that will definitely fill you up. This is more of a fast food place than a restraunt. Great lunch or midday option. Staff has always been friendly. This is a place worth discovering.
I love the food, but my wife and I stopped there last night to pick up some take out and the entire restaurant was closed for a private party. We went out of our way, in the snow, and got sent away. I not sure if we want to chance going there again never knowing if it will be open to us regular folks.
I lived in Iowa CIty for three years and often enjoyed Z'Mariks. I am so glad one opened up here! My whole family loves it and everytime I take someoen new there they fall in love too. The food is fast, fresh and fabulous!
yuck- not very tasty at all. and way over priced. i think i paid like $2.50 or 3 bones to add shrimp to my pasta bowl. and it wasn't very good. actually it migfht have been a total rip off. i went back (like a moron) and it was terrible yet again. do not go to this place. save your money. just because there is a crappy restaurant out in the middle of a corn field, doesn't mean it is good.
I am a frequent visitor at Z'Mariks. Their food is the best! Fast, hot, fresh and unique. The employees are very kind and attentative...they make sure you have everything you want or need. The food portions are HUGE for the very small price you pay. Personally, I really enjoy the Little Penne with Butter and Cheese (from the kids menu). Also, if you go, you have to get the BREAD!!!!!! It is the BEST bread I have ever tasted - honestly! This place is a Carb-Lover's Heaven =]
The food is very good and at least unique as compared to other restaurants in the area.
There is a reason why everybody loves this place…it is dang good. It’s simple. Z’mariks does not boast a huge menu, it doesn’t need to. The flavors of the bowls are enough to keep you happy. It is set up cafeteria-style, where you order and either they bring out your meal or they call a number. (No waitress/waiters) However, the service is still friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere is very casual, clean, a lot of natural light and tasteful. I would recommend Zmariks for lunch or dinner.
They have something for everyone on the menu. I'm addicted to the mosta with tofu. Delicious! All reasonably priced, excellent customer service, and very efficient. I recommend to anyone. One of a kind place. I guarantee you'll go back.
Awesome Sweet and Sour bowl - I am totally addicted. The vegatables are cooked just right, and the sauce is a perfect balance of sweet and tangy. I always get it with brown rice...my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
The food at this noodle cafe is fabulous. I was in the mood for Italian pasta and my husband wanted Asain...this restaurant more than satisfied us both!! This cafe is a wonderful addition to West Des Moines!
Z'Mariks Noodle Cafe is a one of a kind. Mac N Cheese is awesome. I'll be back many times.
Finally, a place where affordable prices meets great food. Hooray for Z'Mariks. Big Bowls, great atmosphere, and great food all done fast. I went there for lunch, and I was in and out within 5 minutes. I just found my new lunch spot and reccommend Z'Mariks to everybody!!
