This is a true "locals" hangout. Good food. Everyone goes for the hot dogs! They serve hamburgers too! Casual dining for the entire family!

Zack's hotdogs are a Burlington staple. It's an ideal place for a quick lunch. An additional plus is watching how the servers operate, calling out orders to cooks, which expedites the process. I like the hotdogs and the ambience.

Went here for lunch. They have done away with their signature burgers and replaced them with like "cardboard box" burgers that come in boxes. Just don't like them anymore. Won't be back.

Great hotdogs and burgers combined with old soda shop charm. Love this place! Try the hot sauce on your dog.

A local institution. Hot dogs are good. Fries are on the greasy side. Cash only. Inexpensive and usually busy at lunch.

Anyone from Burlington knows Zacks is one of the most classic staples of this city. Love how they have never conformed to accepting credit cards. Fastest service in the world. A true example of success throughout the changing of times.

I'm actually not sure. I've only been for lunch and dinner; and always get three (3) combo dogs with mustard, onions and chili. And, Cheerwine in the bottle... Sorry I don't know the answer to your question. I know I have... More
