Very innocuous place, although that goes with the territory .. the smoked meat sandwiches are somewhere great, somewhere only functional, but if the hankering for this kind of food hits you anywhere close to the Cambie and Broadway area, then Zako's is your destination!

Read the raves and then decided to try Zakos. Come on ... Although the restaurant is quaint, the Montreal Smoked Beef I found was a bit on the tasteless side. Had it on rye , hot mustard only, the only way to enjoy. And the...More

The best Montreal smoked meat sandwich...THE best sandwich I've ever had. Owner/operator is super friendly. Yet another place I have to make time to visit while I'm in Vancouver. Last time I was there (August 2007), construction for the Canada Line on Cambie Street made...More
