We really like this burger place where the burgers are grilled and not fried. We also suggest you get the always hot and crispy fries too. We go for his homemade soup during winter time which is good on a cold day.

Zack's is the place to go if you want chicken salad or a great, char-grilled burger; when you do something well, they say you should stick with it, and that is exactly what Zack's has done! With booths inside and tables and umbrellas outside, there is room for everyone. The prices and service are great.

Apparently Zack's is a true locals' favorite. Great hotdogs without question, super friendly service and a "quaint" atmosphere (very casual). Even the patrons were pleasant which, in today's world can sometimes be hard to find. I will certainly be back when I return to Smithfield!

Stopped in for lunch and was initially concerned at how basic the menu is....truly just burgers, hotdogs and fries. But the food was ready within minutes and was amazing. The staff is incredibly friendly, greeting many customers by name and welcoming the folks they didn't recognize. The man whom we assumed to be the owner stopped by twice to ask... More

Best place in town to get a char-grilled burger. Fast, friendly and fabulous! If you're looking for a good burger, dog or chicken salad sandwich this is the place.

Cheeseburgers, fries, and diet Pepsi's. They were all good and well prepared. When you get down to it, what more do you want, and what more can you ask for?

Traveling south on I 95, we stopped for lunch. Located close to I 95. Quick, friendly service, great burgers. The menu reminded us of "In and Out Burgers", however they tasted better . It is run by very friendly owners and staff. It's a must stop on your trip north or south !

I had to be in Smithfield for jury duty and needed to pick up a late lunch. Given a choice between a local place and a chain - I will go with a local joint. I had seen good reviews of Zack's and when I saw the sign - I had to check it out. Walk in - greeted and... More
