Taste of Zachary featuring Taste of tennis doubles tournament

by Kristen Hogan | Jul 27, 2017

Zachary has taste, Zachary eateries have tasty treats, and if your taste in entertainment runs to sampling a smorgasbord of specialties, the Taste of Zachary is for you.

This community signature food-tasting event comes to The Pointe at Americana on Saturday, September 16th. The 1st  annual Taste of Zachary, benefitting the YMCA, will bring more than 12 local restaurants and food purveyors with 100’s of  eaters from 1pm-4pm.

The Taste of Zachary gives restaurants the chance to reach new customers, who may never have been exposed to their dishes, and lets the public try some of those restaurants' signature dishes, all for a few dollars at each eatery.

Restaurants put their 'best food forward,' tempting Tasters with unusual offerings, or bringing back tried and true favorites. Join us for a sampling of Zachary’s  finest eateries! All drink proceeds benefit the Americana YMCA.

Food: Wilsons Brisket & BBQ, Walk On’s, Martha’s Bistro, Chubby’s Mini Donuts, Sammys Grill, Subway, CC’s Coffee, and many more!
