Go there often with my son as it is one of his favourites. I always enjoy what I choose but he LOVES the burgers !! The place is always hopping and the staff are great.
The best place to go, anytime! It's open 24 hours. I would mainly stick to early morning or mid afternoon - throughout the weekend the rowdy drunken bar patrons fill the place with their obnoxious behaviours.
Located in the Byward Market, Zaks is a classic diner in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Zaks Diner is a throwback to the 1950s. It's decorated in really bright and fun colours, with old 50s advertisements decorating the walls. There's also a jukebox! Zaks has the Best breakfast in Ottawa! Lots to choose from! Zak's makes really tasty sandwiches too. And the milkshakes are TO DIE FOR! I recommend the Mocha milkshake, it's delectable. The great thing about Zaks is that it's open 24 hours, so it's there to quench your cravings anytime of day. I have never experienced any poor service there. However, on Saturday and Sunday mornings it's really busy so be prepared to wait for a table. The service it quick, but you don't ever feel rushed when you're eating there. It is a touch expensive, but I think it's worth it. I recommend ordering the Big Breakfast with a Mocha milkshake in the mornings, and the Crispy Chicken honey garlic wrap for lunch or dinner! Bon Appetite!
Zaks is the place that i go the most often when i'm out on the market with friends. It's a resteraunt where you know that there will be something there for everyone. My only qualm is late at night their service is really bad - they need to have more staff on the night shift for sure!
What's cheap, fast, and open 24 hours? Zak's Diner in the Byward Market. It's just a nice simple place that you can either take the kids to or stumble to after the bar scene closes up for the night. The food is great, especially for the price. Picky eaters will be able to find something simple here that tastes great too. Their milkshakes are really good too!
This place kind of reminds me of the diner on Saved By The Bell (The Max?), but in blue, not red. That's just one opinion though!
