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

I was attending a meeting in downtown Burlington and we went here for lunch. Had never heard of Zack's glad I have now. It's worth the 2 mile drive off Exit 145 on I-85/40. Hotdogs are old fashion like you grew up eating. Great homemade chilli. About the fastest service I have ever had 5 at our table everyone's order... More

Dropped in for lunch last Friday. Always fast, always great, a Burlington tradition. Try the block combo dog and make sure to add some of Mr. Zack's hot sauce.

Great local family providing the best breakfast menu and world famous hot dogs for lunch. Known for their hot dogs, Zacks also boasts a unique flair a favor that only a local hot spot could. Good people, great fast service, and excellent food.

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
