REVIEWS OF Zack's Family Restaurant IN Alabama

Rhonda Kelly

Fine folks, from owner's to employees. These guys lay out quite the spread of home cookin'... somewhat reasonably priced. I had 2 picky eaters w/me that also have some cognitive delays. Felt rushed to help them make decisions regarding their food while also selecting my own. People skills.

Starlette Edwards

Great home cooked meal. You get a meat 4 sides, bread and drink. The at home environment was amazing. Food tastes great! That will be one of my go to restaurants when I visit again. Excellent job Zacks! Simply delicious!

Shelby Pinnegar

I can't wait to come back to this restaurant!!! There is a long line for a reason and WELL worth the wait!! Best southern food around. Super tasty, lots of options, and big portions. Staff is very friendly and eager to help. Love love love it! I can't get enough of this food.

Tylar Jackson

Almost always a long wait, as in 30 minutes or more, but always worth it. Very friendly staff, and the food is some of the best southern style food I've ever had. I highly recommend this place, as the food is amazing, but be prepared to stand in line for a good while.

Carlos Aguilar

Narkitta Dees Parks

I love this place I've eaten here for three years and they never disappoint period!!!! Tuesday is my favorite day the pot roast is so good I think my grandma is back there in the kitchen lol

cozy Jones

The service is super friendly and the food is DELICIOUS

Matthew Gray

Awesome southern style cooking. The fried chicken, vegetable casserole, and chicken salad are all excellent. It stays busy but the line moves quickly. Don't make a rookie mistake trying to go through the front door go around to the back door where you will be greeted by one of the friendliest ladies you'll ever meet and get in line because it is worth it.

Mary Walker

Might just be me! The Zacks in Dothan will NOT be getting my business no more! I ordered a to go order and they left my desert out then my fish was Luke warm temp! The owner got on the phone and begins to explain how he doesn’t see how the fish could even be cold then I told him about my desert was left out, he says oh those sort of things happen with to go orders! Well, I will gladly take my 11.00 to go money some where else next time! Not everyone is looking for a handout! It’s nothing wrong with showing appreciation to those who support your business!

Absolutely freaking awesome!! Today was my first time and OMG! You have to eat there Southern food at it's finest and I am from the South so I know good soul food when I taste it.

Donovan B.

This is the best food on the planet!! I have been back here so many times, I could not even begin to count. If you love down south, home cooked meals, this is your stop. I love the fried chicken, field peas, fried okra, cornbread, turnip greens, peach cobbler, and sweet tea. That is just a smidgen of their menu. Please go down and give them a try. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Chris Craddock

This is a great place to get some good ole soul food.. I love eating here and staff is good too

Awesome food and service

Fall Line 829

Best home cooking place around. Everything looked so good. Prices were very reasonable. I wish we had one closer to home. Waitresses need to go there to learn how to take care of customers. Love this place !

Charlotte Roe

Good food but tight parking lot

Joseph Hellems

Great but take out portions have gotten smaller.

Ginger Curry

Best southern country food you can get

Tee Surratt

Fantastic every single time, and very friendly staff.

Fred Morgan

Old fashion Dinner Style buffet similar to Morrison's... Just missing 5g3 blue plate special. Two options, Meat with 2 sides or Meat with 3 sides, both comes with drink and only $1 to add a GREAT side of fresh vegetables. 5 STAR for Vegetable!!! Every Vegetable side I had was fresh cooked and tasted great. Mash potatoes were homemade and delicious. 5 STAR for cake... One of the best Red Velvet cake slices I've ever had. 4 STAR for Meats, very good. 3 STAR for Ice Tea, made well BUT cheap tea taste... They serve fresh veggies but scripted on tea? 2 STAR Dinnerware .It's all styrofoam. At least you can get your own to go box. #THE BAD... #1 This place forms a line quickly with no good place to stand. Servers are slow. I think they should add more pre-made bowls like the older diners like Morrison's did to speed things up. #2 Service, except being seated to an area and given our drinks, we never had anyone returned for refill or check if anything was needed. #3 I think they need a no meat Veggie option, 4 sides at ½price? +++. Even with faults, I highly recommend this place if you want good, home cooked food! This is the best place in Dothan for this type of restaurant!

Katie A

This is the best place in the world. I’m moving from Dothan and I’m devastated I wont be Able to go anymore. The food is AMAZING. Seriously. Every single dish. Always hot and fresh. The staff is absolutely lovely. I will Dream about the banana pudding till the day I die.

Wyatt Westbrook

First time experience First off, I'm a little biased on the southern home cooking front. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is inviting, but definitely plan to be there before lunch because this place gets packed fast. One meat four sides, to include an option of salad, dessert and common southern side dishes. I skipped desert and got a salad with three side dishes; however four desserts could be your plate if you wanted it to be. $10.45 for your lunch. It's well worth it.

Debra Arquette

I absolutely love this restaurant everyone was very friendly and helpful we do not have this in Hollywood Florida home cooking at its best

Gene and Marilyn McFalls

Great food, Great service, convenient location, five stars.

Jacky Hernandez

Good Food.. really busy at lunch time but it's worth the wait..

Phaedra Jones

I really like the food here. Every time I go to Dothan Al. I have to get me a plate!! It was very confusing the first time I went, if you are eating there, you enter from the back door but if you are getting a plate to go, you enter thru the front but once I mastered that, it was on from there, lol!! The crew is alway busy trying to get the to go plates out but they will stop to acknowledge your needs. Great people, an excellent place to eat, with delicious food. 5 ☆


Place is amazing!! Best fried chicken I've ever eaten!

Ellie P.

Excellent Food, Service and atmosphere!!! Would go again.... Great southern comfort food


I'm not a reviewer who quickly says that a place is, "Just like home cooking". But this place IS just like home cookin'. Very good! Never had anything but a great meal there. The only reason l don't give it five stars is that the parking can be quite tight at peak hours which can make it a little tough to get in and out. Oh yeah...and why no Saturday lunches?! That's my favorite day to go out for a family meal.

Tisha Chappell

This place made me love coming back home to visit family. Good southern cooking! I enjoyed the food with my mom and grandma. Line was super long but it was worth the wait. Will revisit when I come back to town.

kenneth hollis

Great place to eat, outstanding food at a reasonable price.

Stacy Knowles

I like Thursday grill pork chops u have get there early bc there line

David Norris

Tons of food in the plate. Meat and 4 is the big plate, meat and three is an option. Can get a dessert as one of the four. Come in the back door to join the line. Good service, good food.

Hammer Tyme

Very good food, southern style. Lots of people eat here at lunch but the line moves fast. Many, many good choices to choose from (usually 4 meats, 10 veggies, 4 desserts, and 2 different breads). Drinks are included with meals. Attentive waitresses. Less than $20 for 2 people and you'll probably be bringing some home! Very generous portions!

CQ Reviews

What a meal! If you are looking for a homestyle meal with great customer service this is your go to place. Really friendly, amazing fresh food and crazy good prices.

Gail Croley

Great meat and 3 place. Banana pudding always available and fried green tomatoes.

Neil M

Hard to find parking at times but after eating here I see why. Friendly staff and owners. They are on the ball with great service. Food was exactly what I needed to remind me of good home cooking like my grandma used to make. Daily they offer different items but don't be fooled by that statement, the menu isn't limiting. Wide variety of entrees and sides. I can see why this place is a local favorite.

Russell Allen

This place is delicious. Cafeteria style southern cookin'. Yummy!

Jean Mitchell

Fantastic...ALL THE TIME!

Mary Williams

Matt Wilks

Ricky Pyles

Very good and tons of food for the money!

Hunter McKelvey

Pure Souhern pleasure. Zach's is one of those rare, true, soulful, southern, home cooking restaurants! The staff and owners simply drip with southern hospitality. The food is scrumptious- variety of southern meats and vegetables. They are only open for lunch, and is a must visit!

Bobby Sikes

Service was off the charts. It was packed to the brim when we arrived, line all the way to the door, yet they had everyone very organized and had food at a table in a short amount of time. Got a plate full and a belly full. Despite the surplus of customers we were tended to very well, never ran out of drink and had what we needed. Great place to visit.

Remona D. Riley

The food is always excellent with great prices & fast & friendly services!

Lupe Ibarra

This was my first time in Alabama and I wanted to try southern food. The replace was recommended by a local. Walked in and the place was packed. Cafeteria style. The line is long but it moves quickly. Don't be discourage by it. Food is worth it. Plenty of options. Had the fried chicken, mashed potatoes, yams, biscuits and banana cream dessert. Delicious. Staff was very friendly and service was great. Never had to request a refill. The place is only open during 10:30 to 2:30. Will be back if I find myself in Dothan.

Ina Bishop

Zack's is great. Clean, friendly staff, delicious food with good portions, very reasonable prices. We love to go there every chance we get and it's 50 miles away!

Sam Emfinger

Great Southern cooking at it's best! Huge selection of the freshest meats and vegetables correctly cooked and seasoned. Very courteous servers will not let your tea glass or water get empty. Even if you find the lines long they are setup to handle crowds quickly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

David Walters

Outstanding place to eat. Home cooking that is better than most all "Home cooked" meals from other restaurants. Selection second to none. Highly recommend!

Brenda Hooton

Found from Google map and tried because of the ratings. We were not disappointed. It was a great experience and wonderful food.

Roberta Ursrey

This was our first time here and we will be back. The food is AMAZING!!!! And the service is awesome. Well worth the money!!!

Sims Nathaniel

Love the food and the service from the staff. Wished that they were open longer on the weekends.

Lori D

A must stop. Cannot say enough good things about the food and the employees. First time there, line out the door, almost left, but the owner convinced us to stay. Soooo glad we did.

Teri C

HOLY STYROFOAM! the food was good, but my plate & everyone else had 4-5 Styrofoam dishes on it. They could fill up Lake Tolocco in a year by themselves....if you care at all about the land ... you wont eat here till they at least use supplies that wont linger for a millennia....

Richard Martin

Good food that sticks to ribs.

MJ Frederick

Great food for great prices
