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!!!

As for the milkshakes, well they have shrunk and tasted vaguely of cherry. Been going to Zak’s for as long as I can remember and to be honest I won’t be going back. Sorry.

Please be assured we haven't changed anything but obviously the chefs on the night didn't cook the food to the standard we would expect and we will pick this up with the team

These were a few pieces of bland chicken on sticks with masses of red onion and peppers. The sizzle was great, the substance not so much. Won’t be having those again but will definitely visit Zak’s again.

We haven’t been to waterside for years. Last time it was ok but this time was brilliant. Great decor, music was good. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Most of all the food was delicious and we used our points card to pay towards the meal so was another bonus.

Staff were friendly and very helpful! We were greeted at the door and shown to our table, given a few minutes to get settled in before asking about our drinks order, given time to make choices on the menu and then to order food, we had members who had food intolerances and Zak’s was more than happy to tweak items to make them safe for them. The whole evening didn’t feel like we were rushed in anyway! We arrive 7:30 and left a little after 10:30 fantastic night fantastic atmosphere! Will return

As we booked a few weeks ago we expected to sit inside as it was a special.

Ordered her a nut burger and she got something completely different so didn't ear her meal. I asked waitress if it qas a nut burger and she said no it was something else what we hadn't even heard of! The other waitress in a black top came over a took the price of mums meal off our bill which was really lovely her but spoilt what was ment to be a nice meal out

Side salad ordered and never brought to the table (weren’t charged which was good) - all meals very bland. Disappointed, won’t be returning as prices high considering poor quality of the food.
