(5) Zen Zero
Zen Zero getting a 5 seed is entirely a nod toward its popularity around Lawrence, not me in particular. I'm not a fan of Asian food. Let's check out a Yelp review:
I always make a special trip to ZZ when I'm back in Lawrence! The shrimp crisps are light and flavorful, and I always order the Gai Pad King. The coconut soup and Mai Tais are amazing too! In addition, I'm always seated right away and given great service.
(12) Morningstar Pizza
If you like New York-style pizza, then Morningstar is solid -- 'The Brunch', in particular, is great. I just like regular-style pizza (is there an official term for it?) a little more. Therefore, another Yelp review:
What a great place, stopped in while in town picking up my son from Basketball Camp. Nice friendly place, the service was very good and our server was very nice. We met some family there since we were in town, split a couple different pizzas. The ingredients were very fresh and the crust was perfect.
Do yourself a favor and stop by, you won't be sorry you did.
