On our way back to Rio Rico from the other side of the Nogales border we kept missing turns into restaurants and we saw the Zula sign on the north end of town - parking lot FULL at noon time -first good sign - local folks inside - 2nd good sign - fabulous buffet!!! If we lived closer we would go there all the time!!!
....nothing deep fried - all fresh. even tho we were lunch buffet all the staff kept checking us - brought us fresh totillias - yum!!!

“Indifferent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012 via mobile

The enchilada plate was OK. The refried beans were good.. The service was grudging--as if we were intruding on their day..

“Well loved, but not for its current state.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Zulas has been in Nogales for decades as a family run restaurant. I've known people who drove the hour down from Tucson to eat here. It must be because of how it was in the past because it isn't worth it now. The food is more or less diner fare with the addition of some Mexican dishes. The prices are steep for what you get. The service is ok, but not remarkable. The hamburgers aren't bad, but not really better than the Denny's down the road. Don't bother unless you've got some sort of emotional attachment.
