News broke last year that the popular Waterloo pizza place, Z's Pizza & Diner, would be closing. In early July, the restaurant closed its Waterloo doors for good due to some complications from the pandemic, according to a report from KWWL.

But the beloved restaurant will be open for business this month in a totally new location in the Cedar Valley!

Now located at 211 W. Bremer Avenue in Waverly, the new spot will open this month. The owners and staff of Z's have been keeping everyone updated with the progress of the new location. From what we can get from these posts is that the hardest thing about creating a new location is done. The majority of construction on the building is completed.

They are currently looking to hire staff for the business. For more information on the open positions, make sure to check out the restaurants Facebook page.

There is no word on the EXACT date that this pizza place will be ready to welcome visitors. However, we do know that they will not be doing delivery at first and that they will be open Tuesdays through Sundays.

There has been no shortage of new eateries in the Cedar Valley over the past few months. A unique spot that will serve beer and dumplings is opening very soon. It's called David's Taphouse and Dumplings and the owners opened their doors in November.

Cedar Falls has seen quite a few new restaurants open up in the Historic Downtown district. Carter House is open right next to the Black Hawk Hotel which opened late this summer. Also, a restaurant called Georges opened in the same spot that Santa's Workshop always resided in on Main Street.

To stay up to date on all of the restaurant openings in the area, make sure to download the station app and follow along on social media.
