“ZEL'S”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I've been retired since 1998 and Zel's was one of my favorite places to grab lunch when I worked in the nearby steel mill. The food is very good and the prices are competitive. My wife and I still stop here as it's great place to grab a sandwich when we're in mood and in the neighborhood.

“Great place in a not so great area.”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

There are not a lot of good options in this area with all the plants. This was a surprisingly good find. Food was great and service was fast. I will recommend for take out only though. Not a lot of places to sit and was very cold inside. But regardless, if you are taking food into the plant you can't go wrong with Zel's.

“Awesome beef sammich!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012 via mobile

Zel's has great beef sandwiches...and their fries are always extra crunchy and awesome. Their horseradish sauce is amazing! I have never had any of their other menu items because I love their beef sandwich so much, but my kids like their burgers and hot dogs too.
