“Good old-fashioned diner. Very good food.”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

This diner is a classic fun place, with traditional all-day breakfast and the usual diner food. Breakfast well cooked. In the Byward Market area but a nice sit down place, with good wait staff. One block from National Gallery

“Fries was great”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

I love their fries!!! Right amount of saltiness & crispiness...
Just didn't like their milkshake... Too sweet... Maybe because i have high expectations because some friends recommend it... But still will come back to try other stuffs...

“No Consensus? Go To Zak's”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Whenever we're in the market with visitors and we can't make a decision on where to eat, or if we have kids, I will invariably say "how would you like to go to this cool diner with a broad menu?" And the answer is always yes. So as a result I've probably been to Zak's more than any other restaurant in the Market. That being said, it is always enjoyable, the staff are fun, the food is good. Yesterday I had a goat cheese and bacon stuffed chicken sandwich on (fancy) bread, and it was terrific. I'll be back again soon, I'm sure!
