The hot dogs with chili were good and getting a small glass bottle of coke was cool. The fries were also good. Just basic fries but cooked right. * The cheeseburger was the worst burger since the school cafeteria.* Of course, if a place is famous for hot dogs then you should order the hot dogs. Service was good. They... More

Zack's is a hot dog spot that has been in business forever...and I mean forever. My 78 year old inlaws dated here! If you want old fashioned soda fountain service this is for you. If you are looking for a 4 star restaurant go elsewhere. They are so busy sometimes you have to wait with a line out the door.... More

I've read the other reviews. True, it's quick and old-timey. Trouble is they have a very limited menu, the people at front can be discourteous at best, and there is no system for deciding who gets a table and when. It's always busy; people come in both doors, and you have to hope people might honor who got there first... More

Zack's is a step back in time kind of restaurant. It is a no-frills cash only eatery that locals flock to. It is always fun to run into people you know. It is known for its quick service and great hot dogs. Love having soft drinks served in a bottle. It is one of a few places that serves NC... More

Great southern style hotdogs. Very fast service. This is a fast paced hot dog joint, don't expect a lot of atmosphere or leisurely visit.

We love stopping in at Zack's. Had a bacon cheeseburger tonight and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is cash only, so be aware ahead of time. The chili cheese fries were great and had a good spice on the chili.

Zack's Hot Dogs are known throughout the world of hot dogs as the best North Carolina hot dog. It is known for its chili added to a weiner and slaw and mustard. I is a compilation of ingredients made in heaven for the lover of the tubal ecstasy. I have known members of my family to drive from Florida and... More

I grew up eating hotdogs at this icon in Sleepy Burlington, hands down best hotdogs anywhere. I have tried others in locales all over, you will not get a better hotdog. I live nearly a 1000 miles south now and when I or any of my children visit...gotta go to Zacks. Please franchise!!

We have been going to Zack's for more than 25 years. Great hotdogs: make it a "combo" and your hotdog comes with cheese and chili, and don't forget the fries...They are super fast, very reasonable, and you can get your Coke in a bottle. It can be a bit busy at Lunchtime on Saturday, but even then it is usually... More
