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

There are some people that like it and some that don't! I'm one that really don't care for it.. it's fast paced and I have found that none of the food is really great..It's food and it's filling but that's it. I rather go to a place in Graham to get a hot dog or hamburger any day and 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.

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!

Thank travlr1222
