Stopped in for my favorite, the Mac and cheese. Got a pork slider platter ( always good!) with Hoppin John and some other sides. Tried sweet potato cheesecake...,mmmm good! Love having BBQ in the freezer.

Just ok, I expected much better. Everyone can serve a dry brisket. I bought some take out and tried some before going home, it was ok, nothing to rave about. When I got home and it cooled it was dry and stringy. The fried chicken was coated in tasteless saw dust, just awful. You could see what looked like seasoning... More

Hadn't been back to Zachary's in awhile so when I decided to pick up dinner on the way home, I called and ordered BBQ Pulled Chicken and Smoked Brisket Platters. These are amazing values and they each come with 2 sides and corn bread! We love the mac and cheese, the yummy baked beans and the sweet potatoes. The order... More

I was attending a Weekend To Remember marriage conference in King of Prussia and Saturday is 'date night'. My husband and I didn't want to go to a 'chain' restaurant at the mall or anything to expensive. In my searching I saw a soul food joint only to read a review where the customer was treated rudely and she said... More

The staff was warm and friendly. They even let us taste a few things before making our decisions! The restaurant was bright, comfortable and so clean! The food was fresh, delicious and made on site. Favorites were the brisket, chicken and ribs. The mac and cheese is fabulous! The deserts were wonderful. So glad we stopped on the way back... More

By far the best brisket and ribs in the area! The baked beans are like the ones my sister's husband makes with peaches! So delicious. The pulled chicken was too spicy hot for me (red pepper flakes) and the dark meat bbq chicken was fantastic. The collards were too spicy for me, once again, red pepper flakes. Cornbread was good,...

We each had beef briskets and pulled pork for lunch. One of us asked for mashed potatoes and it want available and I found it odd. Both meats were nicely done and tasty. However, the service was extremely slow - there were total of 4 customers and it took them 15 mins to get our food after we placed order.

If you had real slither BBQ, you would be a bit disappointed. However, for those who haven't had real southern BBQ, it would be ok. I had pulled pork twice and I found them just ok. Side dishes and corn bread are just ok. The owner seems personable and likes to hear what customers think about his foods.

I grew up in the South, the Andouille Capitol of the world in fact. Collards, iron skillet corn bread and fried catfish were staples. Dinner tonight was a real treat.

The food is ok just not a place I would return to again. The prices are completely ridiculous for these kids portions!! I ordered the pull chicken which looked like somebody chewed up a very small chicken breast and spit it out!! Look at your platter before leaving and you just might leave it!! I was very surprised not sure... More
