Mr. Zee’s: The right restaurant to go to

By Jose Roa ’20

Mr. Zee’s is a delightful restaurant with good service, food, and decor.

Once you arrive at Mr. Zee’s, which is in a mini plaza with parking, you will see the big crystal clear windows. Once you walk in, there will be a big menu sign above the register. This menu contains many different choices: sandwiches such as gyros, fish sandwich, beef sandwich, grilled cheese, chicken breast; Burgers such as a double cheeseburger, bacon and cheeseburger, hamburger; Salads such as greek salad, gyro salad, and chicken salad; and more.

When it comes to packaging their items, they will wrap the sandwiches with a thin layer of food paper and then a layer of tinfoil to keep it nice and warm. Side orders such as mozzarella sticks, fries, onion rings, etc. are put in a small paper bag. I highly recommend the bacon cheeseburger which contains a juicy patty, melty cheese, tomatoes, crunchy onions, and lettuce.

When you order your food, you will be received with a smile. When the cashiers take your order it is most likely always by a cashier who knows Spanish. When you finish giving your order. Then they will give you your order number. You can take a seat at any open table until they call your number. Now I will say that the bench seats are not my favorite seats, but there are also tables with chairs.

Some might say that it takes long for the food to be ready and that sometimes there is no parking space. I will agree with this statement, but you can make your order a few minutes before even leaving your house. It’s better for the cooks to take their time making the food good instead of rushing through and doing a poor job.
