Just finished eating at Zack's. They had a sign out front "voted best meat & 3's in the state." Definitely did not disappoint. The chicken fried steak was great. Will definitely stop again when back in Dothan.

Fantastic Home Cooked food, usually crowded because the food is so good but well worth any wait. Just won best meat and three award in Alabama and is well deserved.

You get a meat and 4 sides, drink, and bread. It was too much food for me, and the catfish on Friday was not deboned. Everyone was very nice but they need a 3rd parking lot. It was $19.95 for the 2 of us. The...More

Zack's is an excellent place for a nice chicken lunch buffet. The chicken is cooked to perfection and they always have an excellent selection of vegetables to go with the main course. Be sure to go early for lunch since it is usually crowded at...More

This is a family restaurant, so the price is reasonable ($10 or less) and the food is always buffet/country style.
