Zaks - Poringland
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!!!

Just feel the takeaway option isn’t as good value for money.

Even picking up a take away was a delight. Book, they ring you for order and car reg. go pick up. Brilliant. staff were still super friendly when coming out with your order. Food has been awesome recently.
Thanks so much for your support Matt glad you enjoyed 😍
Ordered a drive thru takeaway - so easy for ordering to collection. Staff were friendly and efficient and most importantly food was lush!!
Food was still hot by the time we got home (30mins) and tasted great. Will definitely be back for more when reopened:-) thank you Zaks!!
Thanks so much Lizzie!! 😍
Using the takeaway service was fantastic.. and the food.... oh my days... outstanding as always!

Excellent takeaway burgers and chicken crispies! Would definitely recommend
Thank you so glad you enjoyed! 😊
The food was absolutely delicious! I had the best gluten free burger and chips I’ve ever had! Highly recommend!
Thanks so much Hannah! 😍
Excellent as always. Great service when I had to alter my plans at the last minute due to self isolation - rearranged to a time I could get someone to collect for me. Lovely food as expected
Thanks so much Linda 😊
Takeout from Zaks was really nice! The food was still really hot when I got home (despite the cold weather!) and was delicious! Would highly recommend
Thanks so much Ellie 😍
Because of covid it was a takeaway but the standard of the service was high and the quality of food was as good as if not better than dining inside
I hope they keep the take away service going longer as my husband is classed as extremely clinically vulnerable and wouldn't have eaten in even if we could have done
Thanks so much Patricia so glad you enjoyed 😊 Unfortunately we are now closed to keep our team and our customers safe but we hope, if restrictions allow, to reopen in February 🤞
Zak’s it’s a bit pricey for what they serve especially with the takeaway
Thanks ChloK our takeaways do receive a 10% discount, hopefully you enjoyed 😊
As always the takeaway burgers were delicious. Zak’s is our go to restaurant and we will be returning soon!
Thank you so much Charlotte 😍
Christmas Eve dinner, COVID rules in place so less ambience, but food and service excellent.
Thank you 😊
Lovely tasty food and lots of it. Their home made slaw is to die for and a must have side.
We've always had a good meal at zaks poringland and will be returning again at the end of lockdown
Thank you so much for your support 😊

The best Zaks! Really well spaced tables, nice and friendly and felt safe while dining. Good food.
Thank you so much 😊
Great food as always. Yummy
So glad you bought back this menu
Thanks Donna 😊
Love eating here as a family food choice is good except it would be nice to have chicken strips as an adult meal instead of just kids as my teenager wouldn’t eat anything so had to eat a kids meal!
Desserts are brilliant value and huge
Drinks good prices too!
Thanks Emma glad you all enjoyed, if you ask next time the team can do an adult portion of the chicken crispies for you 😊
Food beautiful and served HOT, fully covid safe, gaps between tables, service quick.
Thanks Toni glad you enjoyed your meals 😊
Excellent as ever.
We took our 10 month old and he thoroughly enjoyed his first Zak’s experience.
Excellent food and great service
Thanks Chris so great to hear 😊
Nice atmosphere,good food, service with a smile. Well laid out dining area good value for the money.
Thanks Colin glad to hear you enjoyed 😊
We loved going to Zak's pre Covid so this was a nice treat. We went as a couple with no kids for lunch. It wasn't excessivly busy but there were a few in. We booked in advance and were given a table in the corner which was nice and cosy. However we arrived at 1pm and we didn't leave until 2.40 which was mainly due to the wait for food. Not quite sure what the hold up was but hey ho. I addition it was obvious there were people meeting up who were not from the same household (4 girls behind us!) But in these times what small business can afford to turn away paying punters??
The waitresses and waiters wore masks all the time and were clearly making a great effort to be Covid secure. I felt perfectly safe.
Thank you for your comments, we ask every table to confirm if they are a single household or a support bubble which we then note against their booking. Glad you felt safe thanks for your support 😊
Great food and service! Best burgers in Norwich. Definitely recommend
Thanks Laura we're so glad you think so 😉😊
Excellent service and food 241 and they were donating 5% of bill to charity which is excellent
Thank you for your support Beverley 😊
Great family restaurant, good choice of food and desert!
Thank you glad you enjoyed! 😊

Always have a great meal at zaks, first time to this one though and not disappointed. If you want american cuisine then this is the place for it, best burgers I've had outside of the states.
Wow thank you so much Adam! Glad you think so 😉
We always enjoy Zak's in Poringland it is close to where we live & staff are always very friendly.
Food is always piping hot & plenty of it, even during these harder times. We felt very safe & comfortable going there.
Thanks Michelle glad you enjoyed your visit 😊
lovely burgers as always, wedges great too, just needs some salad on plate maybe, as just burger and chips on plate doesn’t seem enough !
Thanks Tim glad you enjoyed! You can always ask for salad this is no problem at all 😊
Great service all round - especially at the moment. Polite and helpful staff. Great food and perfect for daughters birthday
Thank you so much Jon glad you enjoyed 😊
I always love Zaks I had a couple of off meals but the lovely manager put that right he was so apologetic, he is always happy to help and nothing seems a problem to him really nice lad .
Waitress was sweet and kind
Food was fab
Will return after Xmas again as per
Great work with the social distancing as well in fact I prefer it like it is as it’s not to noisy x
Thank you Michelle really great to hear you enjoyed 😊
Excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend. Will be visiting again soon!
Thanks Jodie! See you again soon 😊
