This informal restaurant, open since 1998, is a local favorite. Mexican flare with a touch of California. Many choices. Order in line, with food prepared as you watch. Serves breakfast, then open from 1000 am to 900 pm (verify those times). Soft drinks, tea, water. No beer/wine. No table service.

I grew up eating at Zazus and it has consistently been fresh and tasty with ample portions and a lot of excellent options! I have only had the wraps here and they are all delicious. My last one was a Mediterranean wrap which I believe is my favorite. There is something about that Greek yogurt sauce...yum! I highly recommend checking... More

An employee of my client and I went out for lunch. Knowing I am not much for typical chains he had been taking me to hole-in-the-wall places. Although this one I would not consider a hole-in-the-wall, it was a pleasant surprise. I had one of the bowls. I don't eat wraps as I am spoiled on homemade Mexican tortillas. Everything... More

Zazus is a favorite for UVA students & locals. Lots of choices of fresh burritos & bowls - chicken, steak, veggie, & pork. Items are made to order including mild, medium, or hot salsa. The chips & homemade guacamola are a must before you add a sweet treat to take home for later. Small price for large portions that you... More

Tucked out of the way but not out of the way. On Ivy Road just as your coming into Charlottesville on Business 250. The many choices are made fresh through out the day right on the spot. They also offer soups to go along with their wraps and salads. A definite must try while in Charlottesville whether it be for... More

Large portions, quick service and ample variety for wraps or bowls. Good for a budget with lots of tasty wraps, a little for the sweet tooth and viola! You're done. The is simple good eats at its best for the wrap lover.

We ordered two Mediterranean wraps tonight. We requested brown rice, but got white rice (way too much white rice). The chicken was very dry, & sparse. The cucumber, tomatoes, mint & yogurt sauce also sparse. We ate half, threw away the other halves.

Cafeteria style line where a pleasant staff serves up a variety of bowls, wraps and salads. Good value, good taste and like I said FAST. Another reviewer said it wasn't special and just OK and for a little independent place serving great value I give them extra point for being just that. I'll be back.

Breakfast wraps and bowls available. Great portion size at a reasonable price. Recommend the chorizo wrap! Also, the staff here is always very nice.
