Great To-Go food - Edit

Every time my husband and I are in the Charlotte area, we have to stop by Zizi's. Their food and smoothies are always delicious! The only negative things I have to say about this place is that it is uncomfortable how they stare at you signing the receipt as if they are hoping you are leaving a tip. I have never understood why to-go places ask for a tip.

Pros: Very yummy, Close to I-85, Plenty of options

Cons: Seems like they expect a tip for pick up

Ahp07 10 Sep 2017 - I worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years, in many different positions. Those who are in charge of "take out" orders are responsible for making sure every order is correct, the proper utensils are included and the guest is taken care of. Although I think it is awkward they stare, it is industry standard to tip at least 10% for takeout.

Phenomenally AMAZING!!!! - Edit

Five Stars -no doubt! ?
This place is phenomenally amazing! Finally a vegan carry out and delivery service that tastes good... oh my gosh their food is so delicious! I am more than impressed with their customer service, how accommodating they are, and how friendly they are, on top of their food being superb. Their collard greens were on point, candied yams mouthwatering, balsamic mushrooms delightfully savory, and that teriyaki sauce on top of that vegetable stirfry.... oh my gosh you guys, I can't even explain to you how flavorful all of that was! now if you're already a vegetarian or vegan you already know that's a very expensive lifestyle, but for those who don't know, eating healthier is always going to be just a little bit more pricier than eating garbage -you get what you pay for, and trust me the quality of this food is ON POINT! You will be in love the very first time you try their food. I honestly feel they have fair prices compared to their quality of food. If I was a "baller" I would easily give them like $50 per meal, that's how good those dishes are. So try them out, so u too can experience such flavorful ecstasy! And I hope to stay in contact with them from all the way up in Northern Virginia ?

-also... I wish I had taken a picture of my food but that was the furthest thing from my mind because it smelled so good, all I wanted to do with devour it ....and I did, ecstatically! ?

Pros: Exceeded all expectations!, Delightfully satisfying harmony of flavors!, Delivery service!

Cons: I wish it was located in Woodbridge VA, I wish it was located in Fredericksburg VA , I wish it was located throughout DC, MD, & VA!

Something Special - Edit

Was traveling and had looked online the night before for a great vegan restaurant that I could just take and go in this area. I have to say that ZiZi's is such a treasure to Charlotte. The staff were so friendly, they had super prompt service, the food was outstanding, and overall it was an amazing experience. If you are in the area - it's a must for some great food!

Secret treasure! - Edit

Cute and cozy little Vegan take away in Charlotte, NC. I just spent the weekend with my Mother in NC and we ended up eating at Zizi's 3 out of 4 days while we were there! Friendly and helpful staff. The place is designed for take away, but there's still some chairs if you want to dine in (I believe only 6 chairs). They also have a large menu, which is fully vegan. Prices are around average and orders take around 10-15 minutes to complete. The mock meats are very good and pretty convincing (we had the Philly cheese steak and citrus rib tips). I had no faults in my orders and everything we did order was very good and of a good quality. I'll definitely be back next time I come to Charlotte, NC and I would dine there most days if I did live there!

Pros: Wide variety of good quality vegan food , Very good mock meats, Friendly staff

Cons: If you want to dine in there is limited space, but

Highly suggest pick-up only - Edit

I just recently dined in here with my girlfriend and we both really enjoyed the food. We ordered the falafel appetizer with two entrees and were exactly what we needed. We both agreed this place served great food, but it was awkward from the moment we entered to the moment we left. The people who were running the shift today were not friendly at all nor did they seem to care of our presence as the only customers in their restaurant at the time. I honestly hope this changes if we decide to dine in this place again. Although, ordering take-out is probably the best option for this place.

Pros: excellent food, take-out, plenty of vegan options

Cons: bad vibes, unfriendly staff, does not serve tap water

Amazing Vegan Food! - Edit

Ate a Zizi's for the first time today and I am so glad I did. I ordered the Philly Cheese-steak. This sandwich was better than any meat based Philly Cheese-steak that I've ever eaten and I've eaten plenty back in my days of being a carnivore. The seasoning was amazing and the texture of the protein was perfect. For anyone who is or was a steak eater, picture the most tender, perfectly cooked, juiciest steak. That's exactly how the protein was prepared. And, it was on a delicious roll. Another great thing is that the chef does not use a processed fake cheese like Daiya on this sandwhich, which is a plus for me because I cant stand Daiya.

I finished the meal off which the homemade cherry cheesecake. Once again the chef nailed it! It was better than any other cheesecake I have ever eaten, vegan or not. From the texture and taste of the cheese filling to the crust, simply amazing!

If you have never eaten here, do yourself a favor and go! You wont be disappointed. This chef knows what he is doing and can prepare vegan food like you've never had!

I'll be returning soon. You can bet on it!

Pros: Vegan, Excellent flavor profiles, Pricing

Cons: None!!

excellent...!! Gotta go back soon! - Edit

found them through this website, My Gal and I tried them out and were absolutely knocked out at how good their food was! Meat amalgam sausage and pizza subs were well prepared and very, very filling! The faux chix nuggets were some of the absolute best I've had. We also tried one of their smoothies and it was not only fantastic, it was a filling and refreshing compliment to the rest of the food (we took it to a local park and ate like royalty!)

Counter server & cook were friendly and attentive, atmosphere is bright and welcoming and establishment is very clean. There is a small counter and outdoor table to wait or eat at, but generally the food is packaged and intended to be take away.

NOTE: ZiZi's does not offer fountain drinks (no doubt 'cuz they're terrible for you) but they do have several varieties of canned/bottled drinks, including flavoured waters and a few sodas.

Pros: excellent food and choices!, many completely vegan options available!, clean, friendly, fresh & fast!

Very Good - Edit

This is a very good little restaurant, but a little hard to find because it is tucked away in a complex. I got the lentil burger which was very good and my nonvegan mom got the portobello mushroom sub which she said was the best sub she's ever had. The people working there are very friendly. Food seems healthy, not too oily or salty. Nice atmosphere

comfort food at its best - Edit

Awesome menu, well thought out, every thing you hope for when you are traveling. Hard to find, vegan food take out is the sign on the front - no name... Trust the GPS and ignore the hassle buzz, service was fine. Four seats indoors, two outside so you can eat there too.

Pros: deep comfort food menu. , deserts, fair price

Cons: there are not more like it!

ZiZi's - Edit

Grilled sandwiches tend toward the greasy side. Bowls are good. Numerous fake meat dishes but plenty that are not. Service can be slow - call ahead. I work in the area but seldom visit because it can be tough getting back to work on time even with a call-in. If I lived closer or time was not an issue, I would visit more often.

Favorite place to eat!! - Edit

I tried Zizi's for the first time at Taste of Charlotte last year and fell in love on the spot. I was really disappointed that they weren't there this year because I was hoping to try more things that I haven't had yet. I have been vegetarian for 3 years now. I grew up in up-state NY where the eating of chicken wings is almost religious so needless to say, it was one of the more difficult foods for me to give up. When I tried the buffalo "chicken" wings at Zizi's, I finally felt like a hole had been filled. These "chicken" wings tasted better to me than some real chicken wings I've had. I haven't been to Zizi's in a while but my birthday is this month and it's the only thing I plan on asking for.

Pros: meat substitutes taste like real deal

Cons: Don't deliver everywhere in Charlotte

Good! - Edit

Only been there once when I was at UNC-C for something. I will definitely go again when I'm in the area. Good food, good service. Like supporting vegan local restaurants. Would definitely call ahead as we got there shortly after they opened and were behind several other orders.

Eater Beware - Edit

Better places to get quality, healthy vegan meals. Luna's Living Kitchen shames this place. But, you *may* be able to select healthier menu items. Personally, I'd rather have something as far removed from McBarffles as possible but some still crave junk food.

Pros: Trying

Cons: Greasy Items, Salty, Sugar

8 Thumbs Up - Edit

My family of 4 approves. We had the Hot Tofu sandwich, Philly cheese, buffalo chkn, spicy southwest burger, and pumpkin cheesecake. It was all very delicious. They were big! So we're all satisfied and full.

We will return when we visit Charlotte again.

Pros: Filling, Flavorful
