Simple menu and low prices. The hot dogs are a must and I love their cheese fries. They still sale some sodas in glass bottles. Fast service and family run. They have been around forever. Decent breakfast also. Cash only but has an ATM inside. Try the hot sauce!

Zack's is a no frills kind of place. Be warned when you arrive you will wait for a seat and when you see someone leaving you need to be speedy quick and sit your rump in their place! What I mean by that is that YOU need to sit down at a dirty table which is not comfortable to do... More

I cannot give you a detiled review about the menu because all I ever get here is the Chili Cheese Slaw Dogs! Quick and friendly service. I love this place for lunch when I visit Elon University.

One of our favorite places to eat in Burlington! Great hotdogs! Love a Carolina dog! Haven't tried anything else, but my husband and daughter really like their burgers! Quick and friendly service. Only cash accepted!

Hot dogs were not good, the Carolina dog had awful slaw and onions were old. My friend ordered a cheeseburger and it was just a square of cheap thin cheese not even melted. She said it tasted like a soy burger, it was flat and definitely looked like the awful cheap frozen patties from the grocery store. But we were... More

I can't remember a time without Zack's. This is definitely one of Burlington's most important landmarks.

The BEST chili dog I have found in this area, and very reasonably priced. The service is always quick and friendly, the tables clean and the food served super fast. I tried the burger, and it was better than some places, but will stick to the chili dogs. A unique flavor of the chili and the soft bun on the... More
