Nothing fancy here, just good Southern cooking served cafeteria style. The menu rotates depending on the day of the week but it's all good. You get a meat and 4 sides for a very reasonable price.

But I'm from the south and a thick girl is the way to go!! I love meeting up here with friends and enjoying some southern country food. We always get the same thing...country fried steak mash potatoes with gravy fried okra and to finish it off....banana pudding. We will continue to dine here once a month for our monthly binge

It's really hard to go wrong eating here. Consistently good southern cooking. Very large variety of meats vegetables and desserts. Each day of the week has specialty meats. They always have fried and baked chicken though. Don't be turned off by full parking lot though they handle large crowds with ease. Not sure of the pricing structure but you can... More

This was my 2nd trip to Zack's and it confirmed my first impression. This is a great family restaurant with excellent Southern cooking and hospitality. Many very tasting and fulfilling selections for a classic "meat and three" including bread and dessert for around $10/pp. My choices today of fried chicken, turnip greens, fresh corn, field peas, panfried cornbread, and banana...

What can I say about Zack's but I wish I had two stomachs! Home cooking at it's best. I always say I'm going to try something new but then I see the country fried steak with white gravy and have to have it. The sides are numerous and each delicious. Fresh honey cheese biscuits, homemade nanner pudding, perfect sweet tea--efficient... More
