We had a graduation/birthday party at our house for 70 people this past weekend and catered the dinner from Zachary’s BBQ. It was absolutely fantastic! Our choices were Pulled Pork, Brisket and Jerked Chicken and all three received rave reviews from our guests. The Mac n cheese side was gone in an instant! Definitely order a double batch! We asked for 4:00 delivery and she arrived exactly on time and set up the buffet with everything we needed. We will definitely be having Zachary’s BBQ back for our next gathering!! More...

If you love Soul food or always wanted to try Soul food, this is the place for you. Too many amazing choices to describe them. Try the brisket, the Mac n cheese, the chicken....and don't forget to try all the great sauces that complement all the dishes. More...

Oh my God! The food at this place was so delicious that I find myself craving it like some sort of addict. The chicken, the sides, and the the corn bread was remarkable. Don't walk, but run to this place for delicious soul food! More...

I got the sampler platter and it was awesome! The service was friendly and the dish came with brisket, smoked sausage, and two sides. I got coleslaw and fried okra. The okra was cooked perfectly, with the right amount of breading. They pair it with a horseradish cream sauce that’s got nice kick and complements the bite in the okra perfectly. The slaw is thick cut (like my grandma from NC makes it) and it had a nice mild dressing one it. Mayo based, but not heavy on the vinegar like some recipes get. The sausage was my favorite! If you like bold flavors in your proteins this is a must. Good balance of heat and smoke. Both the sausage and brisket were drizzled in a bbq that was thick and had a hint of sweet to it. The brisket was tender, and though it tasted smoked, it seemed like it was more of a subtle flavor, like smoking with an apple wood where you get the flavor of the meat and the hint of smoke vs the intensity you get with a mesquite for instance. I liked it a lot. 100% I’m going back. (Saved it in my nav so I don’t miss it, it’s easy to drive by) Next time I’m going for fried fish and some Carolina BBQ. Many thanks!!! More...

Mt first time here. I loved their food. Big up to you Mr.Zachary.The staff was very professional. I advise anyone that loves food like I do come on down. I had the two piece chicken fried like my grandma's.Collard's, potato salad,cornbread to die for. Just mouth watering. I thought I was home back in grandma's kitchen. Thank you for a wonerful experience. I will be back and with my family. More...

If you want barbeque and you're in the area, try Zachary's. The place can be busy (what would you expect), but service is fast and very friendly. Prices are very reasonable. While we were there (quiet time, mid-afternoon) the place was still busy. We had a chance to speak with the chef/owner. He has exceptional experience and really takes pride in his work! If you like BBQ this is your place. Go! You won't be disappointed. More...

I went there based on being a BBQ connoisseur, so I had no insight into what I was getting myself into. I ordered the Certified Angus Beef Brisket Melt, BBQ Baked Beans, and the Four Cheese Baked Macaroni. Keith the owner of the restaurant came out and asked if it was my first time and when he found out it was and that I was from Texas, gave me a sampling of the brisket - I was mesmerized. Let me tell you up front, it's NOT smoked, but don't let that chase you away. It's tender, juicy, and melts in your mouth. He gave me a little of the Grandmothers Recipe sauce that it was to come with on the sandwich, that just added to the taste. The baked beans were incredible as well. Never have I ever had baked beans with pineapple. A tremendous addition of flavor. The mac-n-cheese, was delicious. It wasn't over powering with cheese, the macaroni wasn't mushy, it was just right. Keith wouldn't tell me the four cheeses used, but that doesn't matter, it was fabulous. After eating my meal, which comes with a biscuit, I sat back for a while and let Keith and Zachary, who had showed up, know that what I had just experienced was soul-ful. It was just that good. I HIGHLY recommend you pay Zachary's a visit. You will not be disappointed. I will advise that if you are there seeking BBQ, like I was, the food there is more on the soul side than BBQ, but again, you will NOT be disappointed! More...

My wife and I had a 50th birthday party and had Zachary's cater the event. The food was one of the biggest favorites of the evening. The food and service that Zachary's provided was a grand slam and our guests were absolutely raving about the food and it made the night a huge success. So if anyone asks if you know a caterer tell them to call Zachary's and they will never regret it. More...

I stopped by for lunch after hitting PennDOT across the street. I had driven past many times but never stopped. It did not disappoint. I got the seafood gumbo which was spicy and delicious. I follow that up with the pulled pork barbecue sandwich with the vinegar sauce. It was spicy tangy and delicious. The price was very reasonable. I will definitely be going back and I am adding this to my list of Norristown hotspots. More...

Went today with some family members. My cousin from the south has been itching for good southern food since she moved up here and this place didn't disappoint!

The operators of this establishment are very welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Definitely add this to your list of must try places! More...

The food here was spectacular. I do a lot of traveling in my line of work, and eat at a new place every where I go. This is by far one of the best establishments I’ve been too, to date. Everything is home made (except the soda) with sauces and rubs made with vegetables straight from the garden out front. The service is absolutely amazing, from the head chef checking on you too super friendly people right behind the counter. If I lived near Zach’s, I’d be eating here 3-4 times a week! More...

My new friend Kieth, owner of Zachary's, is a phenomenal classical chef that has chosen to have a soul food bar-b-que kitchen. I am a dedicated foody, so I have had my share of many types of ethnically good food. Hands down, Kieth is not only a great community leader, he is a wonderfully learned chef that knows how to get down in the kitchen with his second to none recipes. Seriously, there was not one item, that I tried, that was not magnificently and authentically tasty. From the perfectly fried catfish, to the carnivorous inducing beef brisket and pork ribs, the yummy numerous sides completes the southern comfort anybody is looking for. Thanks Kieth, and Zachary's validated professional staff, for making my eating experience likened unto your jambalaya, gracious and full of pleasing surprises.

Zachary's did an amazing job with the food at our wedding. Our guests loved it, there was plenty to go around, and we are still reflecting on how wonderful it tasted. My one piece of advice for working with Zachary's is to make sure you have a wedding coordinator designated to help make sure the details are correct. When we first met with Zachary's, we were assured that set-up for the reception would be taken care of. We provided our own flowers and we were told Zachary's staff would set up our tables, which they did. We left other details up to them, as the coordinator, Elizabeth, had told us we could, and they fell short with the execution. Without getting into too many details, make sure you have the proper line-up of people to help you with your event. Zachary's makes incredible food and your guests will be talking about it forever, but bringing the food is where they should draw the line in my opinion. More...

Been here multiple times. Like your mama makes it, if she's from the south and has some soul in her blood! Among the options...BBQ Chicken, Pork, Sausage and Brisket... awesome mac 'n cheese, greens, and I love the White Chicken Chili(smokey, spicy amazing). Great desserts, but you have to catch 'em at the right time....what's available that day is what you get. Acoording to the news article on the wall, the Chef is classically trained, used to do huge events for hundreds, decided it wasnt for him and opened his own plce cooking the food he grew up eating... we all get to benefit from his decision! More...

FOOD WAS AMAZING!!! I wasn't sure what to think when I saw it was basically in the gas station parking lot (I work 30 mins away and unfamiliar with Norristown) but I was pleasantly surprised! I got a pork BBQ sandwich platter with the maple yams and mac & cheese with cornbread. The meat/sauce had a kick and the cornbread had jalapeño (which I wish I knew ahead of time) but it was just the right amount of spice for me. More...

The food was very good and the owner was very friendly, he stopped by to say hi while we were waiting for our food. In my honest opinion is was off putting that it was extremely hot inside the restaurant they needed to have the AC on a more reasonable temp, if it was on at all. Also for what we got it was a little expensive 3 meals, 3 sides, 3 drinks was $60. More...

The family enjoyed a fantastic treat from Zachary's last night-- Smoked Turkey - tender, juicy with a great smoked flavor. Tasty gravy. -- Buffalo Shrimp - This one really impressed me ...LARGE tender flavorful shrimp with a spicy sweet coating (maybe batter not sure). SO good! Spices came through without overpowering the shrimp flavor. The amount and quality is amazing. Don't know how they do it at the price to be honest.-- Grilled Jerk BBQ Salmon -- very good and original taste. The grilled flavor really came throughsides & desserts were all also good -- potato salad, cole slaw, corn bread, mac and cheese. mixed veggies. Choc bread pudding with choc sauce YUM...definitely more food than we could finish.Next time going to try the Brisket which friends have recommended.WISH Zachary's were closer to us but we will stop there next time we are in the area for SURE! ( I must also mention that the staff is so nice and friendly.) More...

Friendly service and delicious food! My husband and I found this place about a month ago and we've been back once. I had the beef brisket the first visit with the cornbread, cole slaw and potato salad. Everything was great-I wasn't crazy about the cornbread, but my husband loved it..so I think that's just personal preference. The second time, I went for the pulled pork slider with one side, this fit my appetite much better (their portions are huge). Save room for dessert! They also have a good selection of seafood dishes which I will try as soon as I try the rest of the BBQ menu. The service was very accommodating, very friendly-which is a big plus to me. They go out of their way to make you to feel welcome and not just some random customer. I seriously cannot say anything bad about this place. More...

Bring your FatWallet and empty belly because you're going to need it. The good and the bad. The food is most excellent. The brisket is tender with a good amount of bark stock sauce is good. Pulled pork was tender stock sauce was also good. The ribs we're falling off the bone and the stock sauce was delicious. The mac and cheese was some of the best I ever ate. The fried okra came with a side of horseradish sauce that was very surprisingly delicious. This restaurant has assortment of other sauces if I remember it at least 12 and one that stood out was Grand mom's spice and a jerk one that was out of this world. Make sure to take some sauces home with you or your regret it. I know I know and now the bad, make sure you bring a big fat wallet even though this restaurant is set in the lower end of Norristown you will be paying King of Prussia prices. I plan on going back and hope to get a little bit more for my money. More...

Zachary's is probably the best BBQ place in philly, not only for food but for overall service. My wife and I went here today and ordered pulled pork and jerk chicken and sides. Not only was the food fantastic... The super hot sauce was mind blowing.. The ladies managing the counter were exceptional too. We were explained the menu in detail.. And patiently.. Which I appreciated. Our chicken took some time to prepare.. They make all food from scratch.. Given that we had to wait a while, the ladies went ahead and offered us two desserts on the house. They were scratch made and were awesome as well. We particularly liked the maple bourbon pie.. More...

So far, I have only had the Brisket, Pulled Pork, Crab Cakes, Jerk Chicken, Fried Chicken, Chili and all the fixings including Collard Greens,Okra, Chopped Salad, Chicken & Rice Soup, Gumbo and deserts such as Apple Brown Betty, Sweet Potato Pie, and best of all Pecan Pie.I am thinking of moving closer to Zachary's and selling my kitchen as I really won't need it. I wish I could get breakfast there too. More...

Friendly staff, and fast prompt service. I recommend calling ahead for fried chicken, since it's made to order. -fried chicken : tender & juicy, just wish the breading had a bit more flavor -mac&cheese: favorite item I had! Great flavor, 4 different kinds of cheese, highly recommend -Cornbread: nice and moist, the jalepinos in it surprised me, and honestly Im not a spicy person, however they were very subtle.Maple sweet potato- not what I expected, wasn't bad but expected a bit more flavorTheir homemade sauces are all fantastic and I highly recommend !!! Can't go wrong with any of them. This was my first time there, and I will be back (need to try the pecan pie and get that great Mac agAin!) More...

Food is really good. Service is just painfully slow. We were there a few days ago and there was no one in the place and no takeout orders going out. It still took 15 minutes for a pulled pork platter with two sides the counter person simply took from the steam table. More...

I LOVE this place! I have dietary issues and can eat just abt everything they make cause it's all made from scratch! The owner/chef is personable and wants to hear how much people are enjoying their food.And, omg, people are enjoying the food! If I could afford brisket and sweet maple mashed potatoes for dinner everyday, I would. Treat yourself- let them cook dinner. More...

I've always been more than satisfied with the food here (especially the mac and cheese). The staff has always made it a point to greet me upon coming inside and, having worked in the service/restaurant industry for a while understand that food isn't immediately ready (I usually call my order in). I will continue going here and recommending Zachary's to my friends. More...

30 July 2015

By far the best BBQ in the Philadelphia area if not the WORLD! It is like what you might have had in Texas but the meat is tender and moist (versus dry and tough). Chef Taylor has figured out how to make the best ribs, brisket and sausage AND some side dishes that are out of this world. Specifically - the beans, and mac n cheese are super. Chef Taylor has also developed several BBQ sauces that are excellent. The Hot IS hot. Highly recommend! Once you go you will, like us, go back time and time again. More...

Sight unseen made arrangements. Needed a venue for ~15 people who were at Valley Forge for a reunion. It stretched the seating capacity of the shop, but not the food supply. The surroundings were not terribly promising (strip mall, not upscale or trendy) but the store is clean and well appointed. The clientele were generally regulars. The staff (chef, servers) were diverse and very friendly, accomodating. The food was overall excellent. Menu is substantial but not overwhelming. Real hickory wood smoke. Ribs and fried chicken exceeded expectations, pulled pork and brisket excelled. Platter - 0.5 lbs, 'meat' - 1 lb. Sandwiches were very large.Sides overall exceeded expectations or excelled. Beans, collards, okra, slaw, all excellent. Conch and corn fritters were fine; corn bread is fine, good portions. Gumbo was very nice, creamy, mild, served with rice. Kids ate well. Desserts were generally very good - pecan pie in particular.Prices were sane. Brisket and ribs have both risen in price at market lately; that can't be helped. More...
