Food seems to be ok. Once we ordered fries and we received a refríed batch of potatoes. Not good at all. They were si embarrassed of our complaint, that they gave us the bill for free. Bad boys

I was waiting (unbeknownst to me, fruitlessly) for a phone call from a friend telling me she was home and I could come over to stay the night. I ate dinner at this bistro while waiting and it was a really good experience. I had chicken tenders and fries. The waitress was very helpful and prompt. I would go back... More

As we live in the area and like to support local business, we popped into Zack's mid-morning, mid-week. The aircon was set to freeze, there was nothing on the menu I liked, and the server ignored us. The place was quiet, so there was no excuse for being ignored. We waited a few minutes, got up and walked out.

Our grandsons love this place because of the outdoor playground. We can sit on the patio and watch while they play. The food is pretty good, but a tad expensive.

Came here with some co-workers for a meal and the two things that stand out had nothing to do with the meal! The table was so wobbly I swapped it for another and the second, the waitress was really good at her job and didn’t miss an opportunity to serve us. I was here on a Thursday evening and the... More

Tucked away in a strip mall, we tried this place and were favorably impressed. This family owned at operated restaurant is not related to the Zacks in South Austin/ Barton Creek, but is certainly worth a visit. The expansive menu has choices to meet most tastes, and the food matches the descriptions (not a 'given' everywhere). They have an adequate... More

Very friendly staff and great food. Good drinks and burgers. Love the french fries with pama cheese and the dipping sauce. One of my favorite drinks is the Texas Sipper. I like Zack's Sicilian Burger with Fresh Cut Garlic Parmesan Fries ... Very Tasty :)

We stopped here on a Sunday for brunch and was very unimpressed. We were sat at a table by bartender and he yelled across the place to the server that we were here. Server was great, always around and available when needed. Good attitude with us very pleasant. Cook in the back, large male with hat on and fishing hook... More

Best to skip it unless you have a groupon. This place hasn't gotten it together since its inception and the food and service is good, every “other” time you are there. Zack’s food and service is very inconsistent, unless you are getting a salad, or a pizza. The kitchen is not timed well with the pizza kitchen, so do not... More

Food: Caesar salad with shrimp. Not the best romaine, dark and tough, some way past due. Shrimp cooked well but too much pepper for me. Service: Very pleasant and prompt. Much attention paid. Atmosphere: Dark and cool. Quite nice if it weren't for a woman in the kitchen repeatedly shouting about "Patio 13". The kitchen itself was overly noisy. Return:... More
