Zack’s American Bistro

(map) Zack’s just opened in Steiner Ranch. Three guys who have a lot of restaurant, wine and beer experience, and who just happen to live in Steiner, wanted to see a casual, locally-oriented dining option there. So they did it themselves! There are pizzas, sandwiches, soups and salads, but we decided to start with this eye-opening breakfast. Above, the eggs benedict. Eggs perfectly poached on pancetta and toasted English muffins, flanked by tasty, crunchy hash browns.

The combo features your choice of bacon or sausage, with large, fluffy pancakes and eggs cooked any way you like. Another solid score. Zack’s aims to use as many fresh, local ingredients as possible.

The freestanding restaurant is larger inside than it looks, with two big, open dining rooms (with the requisite big TVs), and an open kitchen to watch the chefs work. On the tiled wall, you can see the oversized pizza oven. Zack’s plans to make fresh-baked pizzas a specialty. There’s a full bar, with plans for a happy hour with beer, wine and drink specials, plus discounts on appetizers. One of the owners specializes in wine, so there’s an extensive, but not expensive list. We’ll have to come back for more, but till then, they’re off to a good start!

Zack’s American Bistro seems quite interesting. I think I’ll try and check it out as I love Eggs Benedict! However, my only point of concern are the interior colors of the restaurant as they remind me of McDonald’s! If the owners are reading this blog, please diversify the interior – STAT!

Ed. Reply: Ha! Bright colors – yes; clowns – no (fortunately). Posting this to see if they take notice. Thanks for commenting (and we are looking forward to trying the shrimp scampi pizza).

(Tommy) We are still waiting for our artwork for the walls and plants for the interior (it will be in very soon and it will help soften the colors). We would love for you to come in and introduce yourself. Please ask for me, Tracy Shinsel

Had dinner there on a busy Sunday night. Ordered calamari and it was over cooked, rubbery and greasy. Hamburger ordered medium and arrived 20 minutes later well done and dry. Manager visited several tables to visit with customers but bypassed us. Hostess very nice and waitress very professional and apologized for delay (certainly wasn’t her fault).
Certainly with consideration that this is second weekend and kitchen staff working hard and fast, but, if you are going to sell something you need attention to detail for every item you prepare and treat each customer with the same courtesy (for the manager). Location will draw plenty of customers from that area.
