Fast, Cheap, Good Eats!

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.

Overall experience was normal. Since I love hot dogs will go out the way to try those raved upon. Zack's in this area is such a common household name. Can't speak for all the food just the dogs. Standard, mustard, chilli, onions, and slaw. Average. Fries Average. Went after 1pm thinking lunch crowd gone. Walked in and the place like... More

Below average food not prepared the way you asked for it. Ordered two hot dogs with chili, mustard and slaw. No mustard and slaw was only chopped cabbage, no mayo or binder. Ordered a double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Guy turns around, takes two room temp pre-grilled burgers from a stack, puts them on a bun with a... More

You can't come through Burlington, NC without stopping at Zack's. It's an old establishment and is famous in these parts and beyond. People here have great pride in this place located downtown and it is owned by an outstanding family. I'm not a hotdog fan, but we make these kinds of sacrifices for the sake of tradition.

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.

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'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.
