Zacks has been around a very long time. They are very consistent. Service is super quick and the wait people are great (with one exception not to be named) The hot dogs and burgers Are great. Suggestion ask for your fries crispy and they will be less greasy. They get really busy at lunch. I have only had breakfast there... More

We have been coming here since I was a small child. We still drive over an hour for a Zacks dog or burger. The food is so good. Service fast. Servers very friendly. Our girls enjoyed it and now our grandchildren. Thanks Zacks for keeping it real! See you soon.

This is a must go to whenever I go through Burlington. I always order "block combo onion heavy chili" which is a hot dog and a chunk (not a slice) of cheddar cheese on a bun with onions and lots of chili (I sometimes have to send it back because there is not enough chili). They also have a "Mr... More

I was a late comer to the party as I didn't go until Zack's was featured on a local TV channel's tour of the triad's best hot dog joints; boy had I/we, my wife likes it too, been missing out! They've been in business a very long time yet they weren't close to any place I went to very often.... More

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
