Z'Mariks Noodle Cafe - Iowa City


Z’Mariks Noodle Café was established in 2002 in Iowa City, Iowa. Owners Dave and Ellie Allen began with a vision of creating a dining destination that united fresh food with fast service at an affordable price. Z’Mariks has grown its business to several locations in central Iowa and South Dakota, with continued expansion always on the horizon.

Z’Mariks is a casual restaurant that offers fresh food fast. Your hearty, healthy made-to-order noodle, rice, soup and salad bowls are served to your table within minutes. Prompt, personal table service is our hallmark and requires no gratuity. All we ask is that you pass on our name to your friends!

We offer a unique selection of family recipes including American traditions like Mac and Cheese, Italian favorites like Pesto and Marinara and customer favorites like Buffalo Chicken Mac and Asian Spicy Peanut. Ellie’s Greek Heritage spills over into our popular Greek salad, Krith-a-raki and Lemon Saute bowls too. With the ability to add or substitute veggies, shrimp, chicken, meatballs or tofu, you are able to create your own unique creation that is as individual as you. Our bowls are family friendly priced, most under $6, this coupled with our quick service and welcoming atmosphere makes Z’Mariks a great dining destination.
