BarFly's Review of Zach's Shack
Hotdog crazed, former mad scientist turned bar owner, Zach now devotes his time to providing Portland its late-night nitrate fix, keeping the sausage fest in effect until 4am everynight. Until 2:30am, it’s also a hippie-happy tavern, with lots of games (including pingpong on the patio), and a fun trivia night on Wedensdays @ 9pm.
Sundays: all video games free!

Zach's Shack is the best place to get late night grub in Portland. My friends and I frequent often and will always continue to do so. Thank you for being a gem in the drunk/late night food category that Portland is so sorely needing.
Except for the part where it took 40 minutes to get 3 cold hot dogs, one of which was the wrong kind, this place was really great.
How may I present this... Duh? Gonna be crowded after the bars close. We must consider all things in perspective. It is our first natural law. Actually it is the second natural law. The first being; always cast a wary eye upwards for airborne predators. This has served us well for millions of years.
Slow service? Go to Denny's. It will speed things up for me. Smile. Place your order. Drink a pounder and READ something while you wait for what you seek, a hotdog.
I may sound a wee bit snippy here, but Zach is keeping costs down, to stay out of the shack. So there may only be 1 or 2 working there. Some folks are just wound a little tight.
This place is the bomb for dogs. I visit here frequently when wasted to try and steady my legs with some delicious grub. Sometimes service is slow but where else you gonna get a variety of dogs like that late night? Plus they have Sierra Nevada pale ale on tap and their fries are good too. They also have a cool dog punch card so when you buy 10 dogs you get one free. Yup.
I will grant you Zach's offers up a pretty good dog, especially at 2AM, but to describe the service as 'lacking' would be an undeserved compliment. Living in the neighborhood I find myself stopping in on a somewhat regular basis, but almost just as frequently I walk out due unreasonable wait times or even a simple acknowledgment. I won't walk out many more times because I will stop walking in.
Is because I can't stop eating here. The best damn "quick bite to eat" in all of Portland. Plus, they have Ms. Pacman, and she's sexy.
Been down with Zach since day one when he had the outdoor original shack down the street from the new location.This is a place to down a serious hot dog.Everything I've eaten here is bomb all the way down to the chili fries......
