Zaks - Mousehold
Harvey had the opportunity to purchase an old café caravan situated on Castle Meadow Norwich next to the old cattle market.
Zaks opened in May 1976 serving the now famous chargrilled burgers in the “Original Zaks Caravan” wrapped in tin foil and cooked fresh to order in the American tradition.
If it is an authentic American dining experience you are looking for then Zaks is your kind of place. Burger, ribs and chicken are standards on our menu. Add to this succulent steaks, amazing desserts and a huge selection of authentic drinks (including shakes).
We can't wait to welcome you

Fantastic food with very friendly and helpful staff at a great price.

Huge portions of lovely food. Fantastic experience!
My husband's burger and all the sides were lovely. The single thing I have to moan about was the veggie burger has been microwaved and while it tasted very nice it had some rock hard bits round the side. We were very satisfied overall though. Good service, relaxed atmosphere and nice food.
Service was great and food was delicious! First time back for over a year and can’t wait to come back again soon!
Great food and service. Food was quick and definitely worth the money.
Thank you so much Ally! 😊
Lovely food ACCOMMODATED TO MY CHANGE OF THE MENU CHOICE,, VERY NICE, RECOMMEND
Thanks Natasha!!! 😍
Thank you so much for all your help and for a delicious meal.
Thanks Paula so glad you enjoyed 😊
Food & service was as good as always. First time we’d been out for a meal since the release from lockdown Zaks never disappoints!!
Thanks so much Jaime! So glad you enjoyed your meal 😊
Lovely birthday meal with exellent table service by rab lucky
Thank you so much Suzy so glad you enjoyed your birthday meal 😍
Great food, 3 meals and desserts for me and my two kids all for under £30 decor is amazing, my son loved looking at it all. Service was lovely, waitress was very down to earth nice to chat to.
Thanks so much Charlotte so glad you all enjoyed your meals 😍
The staff were absolutely brilliant, service was quick and food was absolutely lovely. Zaks are definitely the best burgers in Norwich
Wow thank you so much Freya we are so thrilled!! 😍 So glad you think so!!
First time back since the new ownership and even better than it was before.
The Chilli Dog was awesome and burger and sides, especially the curly chips were historic!!
The only thing that would make it even better, would if there was could more choice of white wines. Stick a Muscadet or Picpoule and we would be back every week.
Thanks so much for your feedback and really great to hear you enjoyed your meals 😊
We were so looking forward to zaks, as its always been our go to place when we fancy a burger.
However we were disappointed with the service we received, it was very rushed. We were overcharged for our drinks and without any thought for their customers they opened a door which made our food go cold as the draft was directed towards our table.
Really sorry you were disappointed this would not have been the teams intention to make you feel rushed & sorry you were overcharged hopefully this was rectified for you? Unfortunately due to Covid regulations we have to keep doors and windows open where possible to maintain air flow, hopefully we will be able to shut them soon.
Lovely staff. Lovely food as always ! We love coming to zaks for a proper burger !
Thanks so much Rebecca! So amazing to hear! 😍
Really nice good value for the money. Would recommend
Thank you so much!! 😍
service and food very good, was rather cold as sat right next to the open door
on a rainy day. i know they have to have ventilation these days - but still ....
makes the food go cold quick too.
Thanks Penny, sorry about the open door the regulations are we have to keep doors and windows open where possible to maintain air flow, hopefully we will be able to shut them soon. Glad you still enjoyed your meal 😊
Wedges were good, burger bun not fresh and falling apart as picking up,great service.
Thanks Clare sorry to hear about the bun hopefully you let your server know so they could put right for you, glad you enjoyed your visit 😊
Delicious food, nice atmosphere, attentive service
Thanks so much Marie! 😍
Despite arriving pretty much dead on time we had to wait outside for our table to become available - we weren't the only party doing this.
I always find the music too loud in Zak's and it's worse depending where you/the speakers are situated
The food was great as was the service
Really sorry about the wait for your table Vicky the team have to fully sanitise tables and chairs in-between each booking so really sorry if there was a wait, the team are always more than happy to turn the music down just need to make them aware 😊 So glad you enjoyed your meals!
Big burgers, very filling, good social distancing. Service good. Reasonable price!
Thanks so much so glad you enjoyed your burgers! 😍
Great vegan menu, love the food and the staff are always friendly. Thank you for another lovely evening out :)
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed your meals! 😍
Great as always. Fantastic burgers and curly fries!
Thank you so much!!! 😍
Great as always. Rabbi and Tom were very attentive.
Thanks so much Amy! 😍
Had a lovely meal and really enjoyed being in a restaurant again
Thanks Sarah so glad you enjoyed 😊
Couldn't have asked for a better waitress absolute star and asset to the company, she was friendly, worked with kitchen to ensure our food allergies were catered for. Food was awesome tasty and so filling couldn't even manage a pudding!!
Thankyou Zak's for a wonderful experience can't wait to come back.
Thank you so much Andy that is so lovely to hear! So pleased you enjoyed your meal 😍
The Mousehold location is an interesting building in a lovely wooded location. There is a public car park adjacent, but it only realistically has about 10 -12 spaces. Booking via open table was easy, and when we arrived we were shown directly to a table upstairs. Our drinks order was taken swiftly and brought directly. The menu is typical diner fayre- including burgers, fried chicken and macaroni cheese. We chose the latter two.
The food was hot and fresh when it arrived, and very tasty. The chicken was juicy without being greasy.
Thanks so much Deborah for leaving such a lovely review! So great to hear 😊
So happy you were open for our holiday week in Norfolk. Food was as delicious as we remembered and service was brilliant. One of the best restaurants in Norfolk. See you again next year:)
Wow thank you so much Lorraine so glad you enjoyed! See you next time! 😍
Asked for burger to be cooked med but was def well, no pink at all!
Really sorry Susan hopefully you let your server know so they could have put this right for you? Thanks
We have been dining at Zak’s for years now and we always have such a great time with super service & tasty food. Can’t fault them! Would definitely recommend!
Thank you so much Rachael so great to hear! 😍
Fantastic as always, can’t fault the guys at Zak’s!
Thanks so much Laura! 😍
The food was really delicious and there is so much choice. All portions, including the children’s portions are really generous. My only minor thing with the food is that I would have really liked a little side salad with my main meal. I would have preferred half the amount of fries and a small salad, just to add a little variety.
Thanks so much Jessica and this is absolutely an option to have half fries and half salad all you need to do is ask 😊
Excellent food & service as always. Being partially deaf having people bringing small children but leaving them to amuse themselves while they spend time on their phones is a small irritant.
Thanks for your review! Unfortunately that is something we cannot control but glad to hear you enjoyed your meal 😊
Absolutely brilliant, lovely atmosphere waitress very nice helpful & polite food amazing will be back
Thanks so much Emma! So glad you enjoyed 😍
Very good food, great value and a lot more vegan options than I expected. Most burgers and hotdogs have a vegan option which was a pleasant surprise.
Thanks so much Mitchell so glad you enjoyed our vegan options! 😊
Food was amazing, staff very polite, nice music, just bad parking
Thanks so much Sharon! Unfortunately the car park is out of our control as it's a public car park but really glad you enjoyed your meals 😍
Nice burgers here and my daughter loves their shakes. Hard to park outside though as limited space any many taken up by people walking mousehold
Thanks Andy! Sorry about the parking unfortunately it is a public car park owed by the council but glad you still your visit! 😊
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch! First time in 6 months and was really tasty ! Very friendly staff
Amazing thank you!! 😊
Would completely recommend this place. The food was lovely, portion sizes good, staff were really friendly and accommodating, service was overall very good and quick.
Amazing thank you so much Peter!! 😍
