In 1976 local musician and entrepreneur Harvey Platt had the idea to bring a slice of America to Norwich after working for and with the American war machine in South East Asia and a later visit to San Francisco to meeting up with former musician buddies.
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!!!

The service did spoil the experience somewhat. Weren’t exceptionally busy- waiting staff observed to be chatting in groups at the bar (tip- at least try to look busy otherwise it’s just insulting) Had to ask on 2 occasions for deserts to be ordered. But good food when arrived and pleased with the value.

They’re high, wonky and generally not great for trying to eat at unfortunately

Also it was my partners birthday and when booked, I asked for my partner to be sung to for his birthday and this didn't happen

So will feed this back to the team and apologies that we didn't serenade your partner please wish him a very happy birthday from us all, glad you rated the food a 5 😊

Nice atmosphere though.

Coleslaw back to how it was, nice and creamy and reasonable size portion. Jacket potatoes should be a LOT bigger though. Seating needs improving as most stand alone chairs had no padding on the seating area and were not overly large. Didn't make for a comfortable meal. Booths with the nice padded seating appear reserved for the larger groups, so couples/threes etc need more comfortable seating as well. Food was nicely cooked and served as requested. Please don't add lime/ lemon or ice to soft drinks unless customer specifically requests it. Just ask when order taken please. Not having the bun toasted was a good choice as it made the bun softer and more enjoyable to eat. Seating comfort issue is the main priority I would say to rectify. Happy to visit again and would raise ratings once issues addressed. Thanks

Unfortunately on the jacket potatoes they do come in all shapes & sizes, again if you ask for a larger one next time we will pick one out for you. On soft drinks this is how we serve them and have always done but happy to serve without these if requested.

As busy - it was extremely noisy. Food was okay but ...... I tried the chicken skewers and was surprised not much/if any flavour on the chicken. The sweet potato fries also were lacking - some were hard whilst others were overcooked - all not very hot.

Our extraction canopies are cleaned weekly and oil in the fryers changed on a regular basis & we pride ourselves on our cleanliness so we are sorry if you feel there was an odour. We will feedback on the chicken skewers as these should be well seasoned and we will feedback regarding your sweet potato fries as these sound like they may have been slightly undercooked. Thank you again

We went ahead and ordered our food as well. Drinks delivered promptly. Average wait for food. The burgers are not as good as they used to be but they are ok. found my burger with blue cheese somewhat overpowering and scraped most of the strange cheesy slime off. My son had ordered a medium rare steak but it was definitely medium+. Overall the food was ok but certainly nothing special.

The blue cheese is also to the original recipe but we will feed this back to the team to make sure it was made up correctly and also sounds like you may have had too much put on. Please be assured we will feed this all back to the chefs and thank you again for your review.

There was a group of 7 lads who were very loud, which is fine, but the loud bad language and throwing food at each other was not really acceptable. Once they left, the ambience of dining was restored.....sadly, not for long. 9pm ish a family of four arrived, there were 2 young children in this group; one was running around the table and shouting loudly. The other was screaming and crying and little attention was being given to either by the parents to settle them. Fortunately, the food and service were exceptional as always.

A proper American Style, pile it high and let them eat place. Great size portions made it feel very value for money. Great range of Vegan / Gluten Free options. Bryony - our waitress was very attentive / friendly and great all round. Would certainly recommend to anyone.

We had a toddler, three adult vegetarians and one carnivor. We all ate extremely well. Portions seem to have been reduced from humongous to very large which is an improvement in our view. Nothing worse than leaving half of your food on the plate. We will be returning.

The portions were good and I left the restaurant feeling full, but not overly stuffed. The waitress was polite, and prompt and made us feel very welcome and looked after.
