Zack's doesn't fret over dessert: four varieties of pies, cakes, and honey buns are available at the register.

The only reason I got to try one of the cheese dogs was because a friendly local bought one for me.  He told me he eats four or five at a time.  The wiener is replaced by a small block of cheese and then covered in Zack's delicious chili.
