“Tasted like my grandmama's kitchen food”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We went on a Sunday, go before 11:30 or you will have to wait in a long line. It is served cafeteria style with a great selection of fresh vegetables and meats. Standard plate is 3 and 1 with a desert, drink, and breads or a vegetable plate. You can get help with your tray to your table if needed. Really nice servers will keep your tea glass filled and fetch whatever else you need.

“Best Southern Country Style Cooking”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is the best you can find for true southern cooking. True, it is not for someone a diet. We eat here frequently and everything is delicious. There is a fix price for your meal that includes a meat, three sides, desert, bread and drink. There are always wonderful fresh sliced tomatoes (without extra charge) that are grown nearby. You have a choice of about six meats, six or 8 vegetables and a number of deserts to choose from.
Zack's has won the award for a number of years for Best Family Restaurant as well as Best Country Cooking in our area. The staff work hard and are always very friendly and the owner is always there to speak to everyone and thank them for coming. Usually there is quite a line waiting but it moves quickly and there is always a place to sit when you get to the end. Their hours are 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM Sun-Fri.

“Local People, Local Food, Great Find!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We were directed to this place by a few people. We wanted local and we GOT it 300%. We knew this was the right place when we could not find a parking place during lunch. Served cafeteria style, you seen everyone from suits, to shorts. The food was excellent and plentiful. The staff was responsive and kept our tea glass full. Awsome!

“Good Food +Good Friends= Good Time”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Food that Zack's serves is not for people who are watching their figures. It's a good ole country food serving good time place. The buffet allows (3) vegetables and a meat so monitor what you really like to eat and not try something because it's new to your tongue palate.Then add family or good friends and its a perfect outing. The waitresses are also awesome which makes one's dining experience a sheer pleasure and you can't wait to go back for the next absolute pleasant dining experience.
