A recent trip to the Racine area left us hungry and ready for lunch. Our pre-trip research had suggested a place named Z’s might be a good choice, so we pointed ourselves in the right direction and went to check it out.
We’re glad we did!
Z’s Grill and Custard is a Wisconsin custard stand with a few twists: They are open all year round and they have way more than custard on their menu.
Z’s opened a few years ago with a goal of transforming a seasonal custard stand into a year round restaurant. But even though Z’s offers traditional local fare like burgers and dogs, they also incorporate the owners’ family favorites like hummus, tabbouleh and house-made soups and chili.
What a delight to be able to walk into a place on the outskirts of a town and order a vegan wrap, or a grilled cheese on a fresh pita! Everyone in the family found something they loved.
We were impressed immediately by the friendly service. The warm greeting we received was a fantastic start. The Staff were happy to answer any questions. They took care of us and made sure all our food was to our liking.
Z’s prices are quite reasonable also. Our total bill was right in line with our typical Saturday lunch bills. Kids and adults were happily fed and we’re looking forward to stopping at Z’s again the next time we find ourselves in the area.
