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.

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.

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

Anyone that has grown up in Burlington loves Zack's. It is the first place my son visits whenever he is in town visiting. You can't beat a Zack's hot dog and bottled drink. Fast service.

Zack's has been a staple of Burlington since 1928. The hot dogs are great, the chili is delicious. The fries are good when hot but over the years they are hit and miss, which is a shame. Your food will arrive to the table in the blink of an eye.Service used to be great but over time, has deteriorated. I... More
