I've only been to Zack's once, (I will be back!) and already I can state that some poor souls must have hit something in the force or gotten up on the wrong side of life, because the folk's at Zacks care a LOT about their...More

Been going to this restaurant for decades. My personal favorite is the chopped beef special and the chef salad (which is chock full of smoked meats). Family members love the BBQ beef ribs, the BBQ chicken dinners and the prime ribs on the weekends. This...More

An obvious home-town favorite, this is the place to stop for lunch. Not crowded (it's bow-hunting season) but food is excellent. The cowboy bowl is a little heavy on the beans but the meat was delicious. Recommend the brisket sandwich and the ham sandwich.

This is more of a Texas style Smoke house, The meats are all really good and the sauces is awesome. It is a Family dinning place so kids are welcome.

After hearing the hype from quite a few people my husband and I planned a day trip to visit Zacks. The restaurant itself is a hodgepodge of tables, some even placed nearby what looked like a cooler/deli counter. No frills, basic decorating. We were seated...More
