Families love the zoo and Zachary’s BBQ is a welcome stop for down-home goodness, friendly service, and take-out if you want to leave with more!

I have come for individual meals and also for corporate catering. I have never been disappointed in either. For choices the selection is amazing. Great BBQ, yummy sides, fried catfish - a little gullah, a little low country and a little soul - it's all there. Catering was as easy as telling them how many people we have and what we want to eat.

– Scott J – I guess I need to keep going. I normally get a BBQ platter (the pulled chicken, pulled pork, brisket and ribs haunt my dreams), but today I went for the "Southern" section of the menu, and went for the jambalaya. It's one of the pricier items at $15.95, but when I received it, I saw why. It's easily two meals, and it comes with a generous slice of corn bread. The andouille sausage had a nice kick. All of the meat is in large chunks, which made the eating a little challenging since you couldn't get a jumbo shrimp in with everything else, but it didn't detract from the flavor or the experience. Next up: crab cakes.

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.
