Is there anything better than sipping on a cold drink and enjoying some delicious food by the lake on a hot day?

Zorbaz doesn't think so, and that's why they're named the Best Lakeside Destination in the Red River Valley for 2019.

"We are honored to have been chosen," said Detroit Lakes Zorbaz partner Tate Jansen.


From homemade pizza to the iconic Macho Nachoz and cold beer to beautifully-made mixed drinks, Zorbaz knows how to create good food for the whole family.

"Meeting new people and connecting with old friends when they make a stop at the Z (is my favorite part of the job)," Jansen said. "The most rewarding thing about working at Zorbaz is hearing that a guest had a great experience when they were here."
