Fantastic Home Cooked food, usually crowded because the food is so good but well worth any wait. Just won best meat and three award in Alabama and is well deserved.

You get a meat and 4 sides, drink, and bread. It was too much food for me, and the catfish on Friday was not deboned. Everyone was very nice but they need a 3rd parking lot. It was $19.95 for the 2 of us. The heath bar car was delicious.

Zack's is an excellent place for a nice chicken lunch buffet. The chicken is cooked to perfection and they always have an excellent selection of vegetables to go with the main course. Be sure to go early for lunch since it is usually crowded at lunch time.

Good home cooking with large servings. Menu changes daily so there is always lots to choose from. Vegetables galore. Price is awesome.

My husband, nor I, have seen or heard about hot water cornbread for 30-40 years since our "Big Mama" s made it almost daily. Imagine our joy to have it with our delicious southern meal at Zack's.

This place is great. We visited for lunch, since it's only open at lunch, and had a huge meal. Chicken, mac and cheese, cream corn, fried tomato, hush puppies, green beans, and lots of other choices like checkin fried steak and fried catfish. Drinks were served by the servers and the rest is cafeteria style. Peach cobbler was almost too... More

The chicken fried steak was incredible. Best flavor and so tender. The mac n cheese, okra and mashed potatoes had wonderful flavor and were generous in portion size. I highly recommend the banana pudding! The fried chicken had great flavor. One piece was perfect and the other a little dry but not bad at all. Collard greens were perfection. I... More
