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

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

I absolutely love the hot dogs here. I've grown up in Mebane, moved away a few times; and moved back --- or very close to Mebane anyway. When I've moved away and visit home, I almost always go there for three combo dogs with chili, mustard and onions. To me, they're amazingly good -- course, I have to enjoy fries... More

This place is great to go eat f you are looking for a fast sit down lunch! You will notice they don't write your order down but still always come back with the right stuff and even get it back to the correct person that ordered! Hot dogs are so yummy & fries are also delicious!!

Zack's is THE place to eat in downtown Burlington....but only if you'll eat hot dogs and burgers. The service is unbelievably fast....and the food is a real bargain. This is a legendary eatery!

Has been a fixture in Burlington for over 80 years. People like the different dishes, but the various types of hot dogs are the BIG seller. The health food people cringe when they see the various hot dogs, but the rest of us eat them by the ton ! Their prices are reasonable too. Good for lunch & dinner. Cash... More
