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!!!

Went along for wing wednesday and we definetly weren't disappointed. We were able to try different flavours and the staff were very good at checking in to see if we wanted more. Every wing was absolutely on point and I will definetly be returning. Highly recommend the hot sauce wings!
Amazing thank you so much Jack glad you enjoyed Wing it Wednesday! 🤩
Great American style diner. Does what it says well. Nice place to go for a pudding.
Great to hear thank you so much 😍
Good food and reasonable value too, friendly helpful staff and a relaxing meal with family
Thank you so much Paul so glad you enjoyed your family meal 😊
Excellent customer service. Nice welcoming Staff. Great food, more of it (Sorry Mousehold, but way better than you). So much more room for Parties.
Thank you so much 😊
Good food, atmosphere and value. Only downside draught beer was expensive
Thank you 😊
Really attentive staff, food was delicious and came in a good time. It was a perfect evening and perfect venue for taking my niece and her fiancé out for dinner. 😊
Amazing thank you so much! 😍
Visited here for my 30th Birthday last night. Our waitress Kelsey was friendly, chatty and very good at going through everything we ordered (there was 5 of us). Kelsey and another waitress were also willing and helpful with taking some group pictures of us which we appreciated! Unfortunately there was a bit of a mix up with one of the milkshakes as the peanut butter wasn't added, but this was rectified quickly with them giving us another milkshake for free which was a very kind gesture. Food itself was nice, the coleslaw was amazing, the only downside was the chicken fillet wasn't that hot. All in all good service & food.
Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your visit, if anything isn't up to standard then please do let your server know and they can rectify for you 😊
Greeted with friendly faces, taken to our seating which was out the way. very very friendly staff, i like to interact a lot and staff member was really talkative and friendly. Suggested a good drink. When the food came it smelt good, looked good and my god did it taste good. Overall i was so impressed. My favourite zaks of them all. Thank you!
Thank you so much Luke! So glad you enjoyed your visit so great to hear 🤩
Fantastic food as always, second time we’ve been served by the same waitress, and I don’t remember her name, but she is the friendliest, happiest most helpful server, just a delight!
Thank you so much Roxanne so glad you liked your server 😊
Fantastic as always love it here I hate to think amount of times I go in a month.
Thank you so much! See you again soon! 😍
Polite staff, excellent baby back ribs meat fell of the bone, crispy fries. Husband had JD burger although taste was nice burger was quite thin. Childs chicken crispies he said were very nice.
Thank you so much so glad you enjoyed 😍
Visited for the first time in around five years and was impressed. If was far better than it used to be and I will now become a regular visitor
Wow thank you so much Ben what a compliment so glad you enjoyed!! 😍
I always enjoy eating at Zak’s. The service was outstanding and food was top notch as always.
Thank you so much Kimberley! 😊
Service on main course was slow but quality of the food made up for that.
Sorry for the delay but glad you enjoyed 😍
Poor service. One drink order not taken. No cutlery when food arrived more interested in what sauces we wanted. Second drinks order missed a drink. Desserts cream was overflowing no napkins given had to get some myself. When paying I asked if she was new to be told No. will she needs training as this has been a poor evening never been to that one and wouldn’t go back. Was my husband birthday for poor service
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and sorry to hear you were disappointed, we have sent you a message to find out some more information. Thanks
Came with my sister niece and nephews, quick service and friendly staff. Food was good as always

Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed 😍
Superb food as allways and very good value.would highly recommend
Thank you so much! 🤩
We usually celebrate birthdays with friends at Zaks and have never been disappointed. I particularly like it at the moment because they have gone to great lengths to give people safe space (with Covid) - they haven't packed people in. Staff are always amazing, food always good. We will be going back in a few weeks for the next birthday celebration. We always go to Poringland now - good parking and lots of space.
Thank you so much for your lovely review we are so pleased you enjoyed the birthday celebrations, see you again soon 😊
Food was amazing, bit disappointed that both desserts we wanted were out but never mind. Will definitely be back
Really sorry for the disappointment, we are unfortunately experiencing supplier issues due to covid and there being a shortage of delivery drivers, hopefully see you again soon and glad you enjoyed your food 😊
Fabulous food as ever.
Cooked in a good time.
We will return.
Amazing thank you so much! 😊
This was our first time visiting Zak’s as we used to live in Suffolk and our friends kept going on about the place being amazing so we booked up and wow, everything was spot on and we couldn’t fault a single thing, we will definitely be back
Amazing thank you so much so glad you enjoyed your first visit! 😍
Excellent food as always and lovely service. The food was delivered pretty speedily and was piping hot. Superb choice of vegetarian and vegan alternatives so no-one felt they were missing out. Only disappointment was they had no non-dairy alternative for the milkshakes, but the food we had was delicious.
Thank you so much for your review and so glad you all enjoyed your meals. We do have non dairy ice cream so we can do a non dairy milkshake if we have this in stock just ask your server what flavours are available 😊
Amazing food, amazing staff, this was our first time coming because we don’t live very local, but we will be defo coming back, was absolutely brilliant! My new favourite restaurant
Wow thank you so much so glad you enjoyed your first visit! 🤩
Arrived a few minutes late and were told that our table would be needed from 7:30,we arrived at 5:20. We were shown to our table and given a few minutes to peruse the menu before a waitress arrived to take our drinks order. Once the drinks were brought we were asked for our food order which we gave for three starters and mains. The starters arrived in good time and were hot and enjoyable. After finishing them we waited for our mains which arrived in good time. Unfortunately two of our meals were ordered curly fries but came with regular fries. One meal was therefore sent back to have the fries changed which was done in good time. The rest of the meal was good and we will be back to sample again.
Thank you for your review Ian, sorry to read there an error with the fries but glad it was rectified for you and that you enjoyed your meals 😊
Great meal, staff very friendly and courteous. Food delivered in good time
Thank you so much 😊
Noise issue with music way to load to have a conversation
Thank you for your review Frankie, the team will always be more than happy to adjust the volume just ask your server, hopefully you enjoyed your food
Were taken straight to our table.
No waiting to be served. Food lovely, main and dessert. Staff were always available and ensuring everything was ok.
Will be going back
Thank you so much Stuart so glad you enjoyed 😍

Amazing thank you so much! 🤩
Very accommodating as we arrived early. Very polite staff and great food
Thank you so much! 🤩
Food is always excellent. The service was very good too.
Great to hear thank you 😊
Lovely food. No complaints there. Unfortunately the diet cokes tested like coloured water. The waiter willingly swapped them suggesting the syrup needed changing and when he brought replacements said the co2 had to be replaced??
The replacements were better but still tasted weak.
Thanks for your comments Sue glad you enjoyed your food 😊
Excellent service and good food which was matched by its quality and value. Certainly would recommend the restaurant to others.
Thank you so much for your review Rob so great to hear and so glad you enjoyed 😊
