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!

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.
