We were run from the rain and found a great make a rectangular style pizza. You had my husband when he saw prosciutto. The kids got eat out of and color the pizza box. Whats more to love!
This is my new favorite Friday night spot. I work for a local pizza place and Zablongs is not your ordinary pizza joint. While the space is small, they make good use of every inch opening it up with community tables. I get the southern comfort with extra pork belly, add ghost pepper pepperoni and finished with prosciutto. Amazing! There is no additional charge for extra toppings! This place is gonna be busy this spring and summer. My only complaint is they need a tip jar. The staff is beyond friendly!
Got to finally stop by for lunch today. Loved it. Created my own and shared a dessert pizza - a warm apple with cinnamon crunch. It was awesome. Can't wait to go back.
My favorite pizza place in Charlotte. There are an endless amount of places to grab a slice of pizza here in Charlotte but Zablong takes the cake for me. Located in the neat section of downtown called the French quarter so there is plenty going on aside from pizza.
The greatest thing about Zablong is the ingredients. There are so much to choose from and you can have whatever you want without a limit. There is a single price for the pizza and you just rattle off whatever is on your mind that you want on a pizza. Where else can you do this without worries of them charging by the topping? They've got your basic gourmet toppings plus a lot of others like shrimp, pork belly bacon, and for some reason pineapple??
Make sure to try a different base sauce as they have lots of different options to choose from there. After your pizza runs through the oven make sure to add some extra fancy toppings at the end to really give your pizza a pizazz. Customer service is always on point and they know what they are doing and can help you with any questions. If you need help grab a menu at the door to walk you through the steps and even see some of their pizza creation you might want to try.
Best pizza in Charlotte, hands down. Folks, there's a reason this place has so many good reviews. We ate here before going to the Knights game (BB&T Ballpark is a block away).
The make your own pizza is the way to go and the prices are great, a whole pizza and a drink is around $11. Plenty of fresh toppings, sauces and cheeses. Friendly staff and ownership. I will comeback here again for sure!
I love this place!!! The food is good for a very good price. The signature recipes are the bomb. I'm a Southern Comfort fan. I love that they close at 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays so you can go for a midnight pizza run. And I also love that they play hip hop and just have a dope vibe. It's Charlotte's best kept secret for now. You can create your own pizza or try their signature recipes. Unlimited toppings!!!!
I'm going to have to concur with many of my fellow Yelpers. Zablong is Da Bomb!
My wife and I were hanging at the Wooden Robot and had a hankering for Pizza. I pulled out my trusty Yelp and Zablong popped up. It was a bit of a drive in the wrong direction, but I was in the mood for a good pizza.
The establishment itself is little more than a hole in the wall with a few rows of tables separated from the baking area by a single wall. There is some outdoor seating too. Ultimately we chose to sit outside because it was a nice evening.
Their Pizza concept is simple. Pizzas come in one size: 18". They have several signature pies or you can create your own. The Prize is $9.29 no matter what: Makes choosing their toppings a no stress proposition.
I had intended to create my own concoction, but when I saw their Southern Comfort signature pizza, I was sold. It has Southern Cream, Garlic Purée, Mozzarella, Sweet Corn, Pork Belly Bacon, and Fresh Basil. Perfection! You automatically get 8 slices and that turned out to be just the right amount for me and my wife.
So, if you're alright with braving the construction and finding a parking place in downtown, then trying out Zablong's is a no brainier. In fact, it's a Yes Brainer!
5 for aesthetics, 5 for service, 5 for taste, and 1 for location (That's just me...I hate driving into town). I give them 5 stars for an absolutely awesome experience. Despite the time it took to get there and home, I'll brave the traffic to try them out again.
Alright!!!! My 50th review and Zablong's 100th review....
Straight up 5 stars and no less. You just cannot go wrong with the pizza here because you can customize as you desire and also their signature pies are just as amazing.
Love it Love it Love it. Zablong has become our recent go-to place for a pizza (especially when craving for one). For 10 bucks it feels like you get a great quality pie, with fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection, and portion sufficing two easy or one very hungry person, lol.
Their uniqueness starts right from the basics, the shape of the pie. Yes its not round its oblong. I love it when things get little off the traditional way. Their website - it looks amazing and scrolling works sideways and up-down (may not be unique, but definitely different approach). Their toppings - they have all the toppings that you can imagine. Great meats (we tried only chicken so far), veggies, spices, dried and caramelized veggies, spicy oils, fruits, cheeses (including vegan). Only place with so many different kinds of toppings and veggies we have been to so far. Toppings are unlimited and one can build their pie as creative as possible or as hungry as one is, lol.
Its open late - yepp big plus. Its open pretty late in the weekends and when feeling guilty or need midnight food, you got a great place to go and for 10 bucks!
This is our recent love and am sure will be one for a long time.
I had seen this place featured on some Charlotte afternoon talk show along with a few other places and where the pizza looked good on TV, it was the online menu that sucked me in! Goat cheese, pork belly, puréed garlic! Sign me up! We recently found ourselves on that side of town (directly across from the Knights baseball stadium) so we knew we had to go. This place is tucked into an alley so Street parking isn't all that easy; I recommend going ahead and parking in the parking deck. The restaurant is very small and you order your pizza pretty much the same way you order from Subway or Moe's. Everything is right in front of you and they just pile it on...my husband got the meat eater and it's pretty normal- nothing out of the ordinary there but why go to a place like this and get something you can get anywhere?! That's like going to Baskin Robbins and getting vanilla! I settled on the Southern Comfort...a sweeter Alfredo sauce, cheese, basil, pork belly and corn. Added caramelized onions and the girl making the pizza suggested I put some Italian sausage on it - sure why not! She also said "I know this is gonna sound strange but when it's done, let me drizzle some honey on two pieces and see if you like it" Honey? On a Pizza? Ok, I'm game...what a game changer! Omg! Wow! I can't even tell you how good it is- I'm glad she suggested it because I would NEVER have done something like that! This place is worth the hint to find! I promise you won't be sorry!
