Zpizza is a fast casual restaurant with higher quality ingredients and more distinctive dishes than traditional fast food restaurants. While pizza is clearly mainstay fare, the menu also includes salads, pastas, sandwiches, calzones and some desserts as well. For the more health conscious, there are organic and vegan options; alcohol is not served.

Zpizza has locations in 17 states with most in California, where the chain started in 1986. There are also international locations. The Memory Lane restaurant opened in 1996, and is in a clean and contemporary shopping center. The dining room has a standard rectangular shape with the kitchen area on the left and most of the seating to the right. Limited outdoor seating is available. Pizza slice options vary daily and are displayed near the entrance. Expect some company here during lunch from 12:00-2:00pm on weekdays. Dinner is typically quieter.

There were only a few other diners around at 7:00pm on a Tuesday evening. The meal started off with garlic bread and a Caesar salad. The garlic bread hit a high note on the taste scale and was perfect for sharing. It had a light garlic taste, not at all overpowering, and just the right amount of crunchiness. The salad was fresh and tasty as well, but the salad dressing tended to overwhelm the taste so it's best to request it on the side. An order of chicken wings was properly cooked and not overly spicy, good finger food. Going with Moroccan flat bread rather than pizza at a pizza restaurant may seem like a crime, but it was not guilty of lack of taste. A rich combination of individual flavors – such as sweet eggplant, feta, mild garlic and caramelized onions worked together as a team to achieve something greater than the sum of the parts - go team! Cookies are made in-house, but cupcakes are delivered. The chocolate chip cookie was slightly stale but otherwise satisfying with a traditional chocolate taste. With pleasant staff, quality food, and reasonable prices, eating dinner here was an enjoyable experience. Zpizza is a solid choice for lunch or dinner and works well with company or solo.

The food is fresh and very good. A little pricey for a pizzeria, but a good experience overall.
