Overall the food is great, I love it and they serve food really quick. But the service isn't the best. The waiter was nice and friendly, but the guy at the register was not friendly and I didn't feel welcomed the second time I went back.

Zack's is a good place to get a hot dog if you are in Burlington. The food is good, cheap, and the services is consistently quick. Zack's definitely does give you a sense of what it was like to go out for a bite to eat in days gone by. Their menu is limited as you would expect. If you... More

It is inexpensive. The service is quick. The food was hot when served. There is a parking lot across the street, and the neighborhood is good. It is a cash only restaurant.

If you need a quick "to go" lunch on a short lunch break then Zacks is your place. You can order and get your food in less than 5 minutes and you are the 3rd one in line. All the way is my favorite hotdog, but the cheese dogs are just as good. Don't forget to add a fry. They... More

Fast service-servers don't even write down the orders and they are back with your food in just minutes. Popularity is evidenced by the line waiting for a table. Turnover is fast, so you won't wait long. Great breakfast. Known for their hotdogs with chili. First place people who have moved out of town go to when they are here.

When I moved here everyone talked about how great this place was, in reality it is nothing great. I would call the food and atmosphere average at best. However, the staff was friendly along with all the locals.
