All I have to say is "best beef dip I have ever had"! It was so tasty and tender. First time at Zac's but will be back. My husbands chicken burger was so big he almost couldn't eat it. All fresh ingredients.

Thanks for stopping by! We appreciate your input....we work very hard to keep the freshest, mostly organic, local ingredients available for our staff. We are known for big portions....after the long drive to get to us, we strive to make sure no one goes away thirsty or hungry! Hope you make it back, & bring some friends! More

We love Zac's and have been going for years, two or three times per trip. The owners are great and look after the restaurant and their staff. On our last visit we were charged for premium margs. We have never ordered them and definitely did not order them then. There were only two other tables in the restaurant so it... More

We cannot express how saddened we are that this happened to you. In talking with our staff after reading your review to them, we have discovered that its is simply a lack of comprehension..& an error in understanding how to correct the situation. Many times, even though we feel we have communicated something clearly & it has been understood, it's... More

Take the road less traveled to get here. Huge menu with Mexican, American and Italian food. I was skeptical of the offerings because there were soooo many. Was pleasantly surprised with the catch of the day - Yellow Tail cooked to perfection with a side of rice an steamed veggies. My boyfriend - a Brit- enjoyed the fish and chips... More

Take a hidden sandy road to discover one of the most perfect surfer-dude restaurants around! If you like hidden away hole-in-the-wall restaurants, then this is your place. Take your time, order a beer, have some chips and salsa, and then order another beer. Amazing fish and chips, and one of the best chicken quesadillas around! Simple food done right. Get... More

Rotating specials every Saturday night. We went for fried chicken night. Worth the drive. Live music some nights, football games, etc.

We are traversing bad roads to get to playa Pulmo when we see Zak's bar and grill. We drive down a twisty, dirt road and come to this lovely stop.

We have been coming out the Zacatitos area for a few years now and always try to stop at Zac's Bar & Grill to eat a meal. Our favorite is the shrimp tacos. The shrimp is fried in a delicious crunchy batter and covered in a fresh homemade slaw. It is so packed full you can hardly hold the shell!... More

Remotely located, we visited Zacs with locals who knew the menu and the bar opportunities. A great night out and highly recommended. The Blonde beer on tap was super. Mexican food there is very good, enchiladas on the plate where ooey gooey cheese flows like a lake to the shores of re-fried beans, inviting a catastrophic calorific intake the deliciousness...

Zac's is a fun visit in a quaint location. Unfortunately, it was lacking the Mexican atmosphere we were expecting. We stopped in for margueritas and nachos, and were shocked to come across ballpark nachos with topped with 'liquid cheese whiz'. However, friendly staff in a unique setting with a fun drive leading up to it.

Well, I completely agree with 'nemmie's' review, 'yummy and fun' so just had to find another adjective! Particularly enjoyed the coconut breaded shrimp....and the flan...my goodness, I would usually avoid, 'Creme caramel' like the plague, being supremely boring and often out of a packet!
