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).

Very nice food and alcohol. Minty breezes Adult shakes were especially good. Great portion sizes. Well spaced tables and staff wearing masks so felt covid safe.
Sadly, not as good as usual. The zaka spuds were Burnt!! We had waited ages, so did not ask for replacement, as goodness knows how long that would have taken. Not the servers fault. Not in a hurry for return visit. Sorry!!
Great place for a family meal. Plenty of choice for all.
Thank you so much so glad you enjoyed! 😊
Food came out very fast, food was amazing, staff were lovely, great experience. Was a shame to see it very quiet though!

Best steak I've had in years, had some average meals there in the past but was really impressed this time, music also been changed so its not just 1950s and 60s anymore but a bit more varied . Really good evening

Our favourite place to eat, the food is exceptional, I’ve been going 13 years and I’ve never had a bad meal. The staff are lovely, nothing is too much trouble and the music and setting just add to the amazing experience we have there.
Thank you so much Chloe! So great to hear 😍
Zak’s mousehold , amazing customer service.
I was struggling because it was busy and a small space ( I have anxiety in crowded places) we asked for a takeaway menus and then discussed about sitting outside,
The 2 front of house members were very helpful and were very kind with me.
I would 100% recommend to a friend and will definitely be returning again.
Thank you so much Melissa so pleased you enjoyed your meal 😊
Great service, great food, great place. Would 100% recommend. Just make sure you leave enough time to get parked - we went on a lunchtime midweek and it was still a popular place. Brilliant, though.
Thank you so much!! 😍
Food was ok but not amazing, flavours were lacking, burgers were big but lacking flavour - but the staff were fab as always!
Thanks Sarah, sorry you were disappointed with your burger lacking flavour, perhaps try one with a different topping next time 😊 Glad the staff were fab!
Wedges were burnt
Burgers over cooked
Forgot Mac and cheese
Over charged on a drink deal
Really sorry to hear this Craig we are gutted ☹ we will be picking this up with the team and we've sent you a message.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. New veggie options are awesome too. Always a good night out!
Thank you so much Richard! So glad you enjoyed 😊
If ever in doubt on where it Eat Zak’s is our good food go to place. Highly recommended 10/10.
Thank you so much Paul! So great to hear so glad you enjoy 😍
Really lovely food and they accommodated my dairy intolerance and allowed me to add vegan cheese to a normal burger. Definitely worth a visit or 5!
Thanks so much!! So glad you enjoyed your meal 😍
The choice for vegetarians is great which my daughter loved.
The burgers are a bit better than before but I found mine was a bit dry and not as juicy as I would have liked, no choice to how it was cooked and service not as friendly as before.
Portion sizes ok.
Overall ok, bit expensive for what it was.
Probably would not go back as I have found a better burger place with nice juicy burgers.
Really happy with everything. Covid safe, food great..company was a bit miserable but that's not Zaks fault lol
Lol glad you enjoyed your meal! Thank you 😊
Great service and excellent food..................
Amazing thanks Paul 😊
Me and my best friend had an awesome all-round experience at Zak’s! Fantastic food, atmosphere and service was top quality! The staff are all so friendly and accommodating.
Will be returning again very soon just for those frickles (deep fried pickles) :-)
Thank you so much Elayna so glad you enjoyed! Great choice on the frickles!! 😍
No, I ordered Nachos, in my mind a very simple meal to get right. The quality was very poor, and almost inedible. The weird, fake, orange ‘cheese sauce’ to me, was unrecognisable as remotely connected to cheese. We have so many good places to eat in Norwich offering fresh ingredients, cooked on the premises at a fair price that I definitely will not be coming again. When I eat out I don’t expect to be served food that I could cook better myself. I’ve had Nachos many times before but NEVER as sickly as yours. I presume you didn’t make the supposed ‘cheese’ sauce yourself? And you offered a paltry amount of guacamole and salsa, which I guess you didn’t make either.
A lovely meal, went quite early so not too busy, service was excellent. Food good. Reasonable price.
Thanks Jenny 😊 Glad you enjoyed!
I asked when I booked for a quiet table in a corner if possible as my son is autistic.
On arrival downstairs the noise was too loud for my son to deal with, we were promptly taken to our table upstairs where the music was quieter and we were shown to our own booth in the corner. I am so grateful for that a sit made our experience really enjoyable rather than stressful. So thank you so much. We had a lovely time…Clare and Alfie
Thank you so much we are so pleased you enjoyed your family meal out 😊
Great food and great service.
Good choice of vegan options.
Thank you so much Nicola! 😍

Myself & an old friend of 45years used to use the Zaks caravan on our way back from motorcycle meetings. The burger came wrapped up in tin foil & we ate them by our bikes. The Zaks Restaurant we use simulate the burger being wrapped up in foil so to us its a trip down memory lane with the exception that we are sitting inside at a table upstairs & have a commanding view of the beautiful landscape & all the extras that come with sitting at a table. Eg music of the era we are trying to recreate, condiments, side orders, knife & fork, glass of beer & a roof to keep the rain off the burger!! Lol..We try to eat at this restaurant at least once a month & the standard of the burgers never lets us down. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone wanting to transport themselves back to the 70s..
Thank you so much for your lovely words we are so pleased you still enjoy a Zaks burger wrapped in foil! So great to hear thank you so much 😍
Lovely meal great food and lovely service waitress was very friendly and couldnt do enough thank you
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed 😊
Very good service, quality food and decent size portions unlike a lot of places. You actually get a full plate lovely burgers with fries and not half a dozen french fries in a minuscule tin bucket!
Definitely recommend Zak’s at Mousehold
Amazing thank you so much so glad you enjoyed! 😍

Great food snd service. Never dissapoints.
Thank you so much! 😍
Food was great -,but was freezing in the restaurant with the ceiling fans going full pent and door wide open
Thanks Beverly, really glad to hear you enjoyed the food, sorry about the door being open current guidelines means we have to keep the restaurant well ventilated with doors and windows open where possible, hopefully in the next few weeks this guidance may change 😊
Excellent meal as always! Enjoyed the new tater tots as well.
Thanks Kim glad you enjoyed 😊
Always delicious burgers, beer and great atmosphere 👍🍔🍺
Thank you so much! 😍
