Great Chili Dogs!

I was referred here by a local that said I had to try it before I left town. I had chili dogs with cheese, fries and the best part a Cheerwine! Very iconic place to eat with good, cheap, quick food, great atmosphere and friendly staff.

I have heard nothing but great comments about Zack's hot dogs here in Burlington, NC. People here rave about how good there hot dogs are. I was anxious to visit Zack's because of everything i was hearing about them. I love hot dogs! So about a month ago my husband and I ordered a mustard, chili,onion hot dog and when... More

Zacks has the BEST hotdogs in town. They serve a traditional breakfast and yes you can get hotdogs for breakfast if you want. The speed of the service is unbelievable. Tables will turn over in 15 min at peak hours.

The place is diner style, waiter takes your order and in 5mins you get your meal and pay at the counter. You can see this place has been around for quite a while and many locals love it. The menu is quite basic, the chili is good but nothing special however it hits the spot when you want a quick... More

I have been to this place twice now and both times were great. The hotdogs and fries are the mainstay of this place. They also have Cheerwine and Coke products in teh bottle liek old times. It is just all around a great little eatery.

I've been eating at Zacks now since I could chew so, I think that'd make it around 43 years! It's the Chili ! Really it's the Chili. A typical order for me is a hot dog with extra heavy chili and slaw x2 or 3 or till I'm stuffed silly. If you order heavy chili then it's going to drip... More

We were out late and had a craving so we got to Zack's just before closing and enjoyed exactly what we were looking for. The flavor was great and we had the place all to ourselves. And just live the Zack's hot sauce.

This has long been a staple in our community for a very long time. We have enjoyed going there since I was small . It has been operated by the younger generations as they have come into the business . My grandchildren love to go to Zack's. It is reasonably priced and very good food. Would recommend everyone to try... More

This is a local version of the fast food chain. It seems like you stepped back in time. Hot dogs and French fries. This is not a place I would ever consider going again, simply because i try to eat healthy and nutritious meals. If you frequent fast food restaurants, this might be a right place for you. Located in... More

Today I went to downtown Burlington to get a haircut, and realized that in all these years I had never eaten at Zacks. So, fresh from the barber's chair, I walked across the street to the place I'd been hearing about for years. It's like stepping back into the 60's; not fancy, but busy, comfortable, and lots of local folks.... More
