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!!!

Monday evening was very good time with quick service and hot food. Starters and mains very tasty and value for money. Would definitely revisit even though it was a 45 minute drive.
The food was amazing and I left there with a full tummy.
The staff were friendly and very welcoming.
I can’t wait to go there again soon.
Thank you so much!! 😍
Chips cold and some where green and banana split the banana was brown and black on places staff where very grumpy and the atmosphere was very poor

Great food n great service!!!!
Thank you so much!!! 😍
Fantastic food and amazing staff the only thing that let this visit down was after requesting a quiet area for a meal for two we were seated in a very busy area with lots of tables of 6 or more people and it was EXTREMELY Loud you could not hold a conversation. We sat down ordered our drinks and meal straight away and left as soon as we could. We love Zaks but dont live near enough to visit more than 4/5 times a year so were a little disappointed with last night visit.
Thank you for your review Emily and glad you enjoyed your meals, if you're ever unhappy with where you are seated please inform your server straight away who can offer you alternative tables and move things around, this wouldn't have been a problem 🙂
Delicious burgers, with an abundant choice of toppings, coleslaw is superb. We also appreciate the offer of additional relishes . The enormous ice cream sundae is a real treat and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
Amazing! Thank you so much 😍
We were all very impressed. Great service, warm surroundings, friendly staff, delicious food and great value.
Thank you so much! Glad you all enjoyed 😍
Very nice meal as always.
Nice decor never had a bad meal here.
Thank you so much Emma so great to hear 😍
We had a lovely family meal, the service (by Poppy) was excellent.
Thank you so much so glad you enjoyed! Poppy will be thrilled 😊
Excellent range of food, something for everyone. Had to wait too long for main meal after starter cleared away, approx 25 minutes. Very family orientated Overall food was excellent, service good overall and staff looked happy which always helps
Glad you enjoyed Ian thank you 😊
Nice quick service. Food was good and tasty. The range of ice cream sweets were to die for!! Would certainly visit again
Thank you so much Richard! So glad you enjoyed 😍
I used to love coming here for my girls birthday every year. But this time it was awful. The food wasn’t as good as usual to be. they messed our main meals and deserts up, so we were eating at different times or food would of gone cold or desert would of melted. two of the meals at £24 each where way over priced, most of the meat. on the plate was fat on both meal. For the price we paid I wouldn’t be visiting anytime in the near future.
Thank you for your feedback and really gutted to read this, as you know from your previous visits and our other reviews this is not the usual standards, we have sent you a message to gain some further details.
Lunchtime booking and was quiet and relaxing; very attentive staff and lovely food.
Thank you glad you enjoyed 😊

Definitely will be going back.
Amazing thank you so much! 😍
Great customer service, great food, great looking restaurant. Noise level was louder but only cause children on other table but that can't be helped. Fantastic meal and place. Great staff. First time there and will definitely be back.
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed hope to see you again soon 😍
My jd burger was lovely, but I didn’t like my banana split as I thought ice cream didn’t taste great, but having said that my daughter finished it with no complaints,so maybe I’m fussy.
Thanks Tracy glad you enjoyed the JD! We use local ice cream which has always received great feedback 😊
We had a lovely meal and the 2-1 on burgers was brilliant. The waitress was excellent at her job and very helpful. Did not feel rushed and a had a very enjoyable evening. The only complaint was it was a little chilly where we sat.
Thank you so much so glad you enjoyed! 😍
Fantastic food as always, good service and great atmosphere on a busy Monday night. Never fails to deliver a great burger!

Hi Graham, Thank you for your feedback, we will share this with the team 👍
Great food, love going to Zak’s 👍🏼 Music was a bit loud last night…
Hi Burgerboy glad you loved the food and on your booking you can always request a quieter table 😊
Great Gluten free options and great that the servers knew immediately about my allergy
Thanks for your great feedback, we will share this with the team 😍
All a little disappointing. Burgers were at best fine. A little expensive for what is essentially a extremely average burger
Hey, it would be great to get some more detailed feedback, if you could message us that would be great 👍
Pleasant place to eat at lunch time. Lovely food at a reasonable price. Good attentive service.
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed 😊
