We love Zesto! My family eats at the Piedmont location at least one a week. There is no better burrito (or guacamole or salsa) in Atlanta. Would you consider adding a veggie burger to the menu? Lots of vegetarians come for the meatless fresh Mex fare, but it would be nice to change it up once in a while.
I tried Zesto's (last week in Feb. 2013)for the first and I loved it!!! Great price's to and thank goodness for the special's. PLEASE DONT CHANGE <3

My father took me for a milkshake when I was 3. I took my wife for a milkshake when I was 38. In a couple of years when my newborn is old enough, I'll take him. It's a family tradition! Thanks for sticking around.
The way a burger should be...real beef, piled high - real good.
I would love a Zesto's closer to Emory.
I love there hot wings with tater tots ... YUMMMMM!
Zesto's Tyrone, to literally die for.
Chubby Decker, large fry, and a root beer float. That's the life down here.
Your ice cream is the best. Soft ice cream, real ice cream, is awesome. Please put a Zestos in Conyers
I drive from NORCROSS to get some of that delightful ice cream and a ice cold coke. The chubby burgers are great too..and my grandmother (who is a picky eater) loves the burgers too!
Zestos is delicious. I especially love the chicken tenders. They're my fave!
Tuesday night 1966--2 footlongs (chili, slaw, and onions) for $1. As close to heaven as possible for this Tech erd.
Zestos is the best food i've had in a long time. I love hamburgers and once i tasted the fat boy...Oh boy i was in heaven, the secret sauce is the bomb and i will never go back to the B** M**!!!
Please put a Zesto at West Paces Ferry and Northside Pkwy... and put the tarragon chicken salad on the menu so we don't have to drive all the way to Ponce de Leon!
- Leigh Ann
wish all the locations had the turkey burger.
But still the best malts anywhere.
Sonic's malts cant even compare.

Hello, hope all is well. I have lived in Forest Park, Ga my entire life and three years ago we moved where we are like border line in Clayton and Fayetteville County. If we drove to Forest Park and then alllllll the way back home on the other side of town, by the time we get home our food would be cold. It would be so nice to have Zesto somewhere near Fayetteville. We miss eating at Zestos and want you guys so badly on our side of town. Have you guys thought about opening up in new locations? You guys have the best and biggest pancakes! There's an empty building that used to be a burger place that sits next to Picadillys on Highway 85 across from Krogers in Fayetteville, Ga. LOL, no, I'm serious. That location would be soooo awesome and close to us and people would flock to you guys because I know I would literally every pay period. By the way, I love your tater tots. Ok, I know I said crazy but I just wanted to say how much my family and I miss eating at Zestos and wishes that you guys would open up shop here in Fayetteville. Please think about it.

I love Zesto's. Every Monday at the Zesto's on Confederate Ave I always get there 2 Piece All White Chicken basket and it's so good and on Thursday I always get there Steak Burger Basket. I especially love there Brown Crown turned over in a cup. OMG it's so good! Yummy!
I grew up in Forest Park so Zesto's was a staple when we were kids, fun time with the family to go for ice cream or hotdogs. But now I am grown (and a lot older) and I work about 1 block from the Moreland Zesto's and just wanted to say they are the greatest!! The ladies there are great (helpful & friendly) and I see them at least once a week. This one is my favorite places for wings and hotdogs. Have had the wings at a different Zesto's and they are not quite as good. They do it right at the Moreland Zesto!! Thanks guys :)
- Tasha Chancey
I did a lot of growing up in Forest Park and I remember my Grandmother taking me to Zesto's at Forest Pkwy and Old Dixie for the first time when I was about 5. I got a blueberry milkshake and was absolutely hooked. I'm 38 years old now and have never gotten anything else (ice cream wise) from y'all than the blueberry shakes! Silly I know, but that's what I love! That and THE best fried chicken in town.
Love to you all!
- Cameron LaFoy
In the 80's and 90's, a bunch of us guys from the Delta G.O. used to go once or twice a week for lunch to the East Point store. 30 years later, still going to Zesto, but now to Tyrone. The Tuesday special is the footlong basket - it's to die for and puts the Varsity in 2nd place.
- What a dog!!
Burgers, foot-longs, fish tacos, and Nut Brown Crown = Heaven on Earth!!! What a treat!!!
- Janet Beerman
Heck yeah bay-bee keep them cmiong!
I grew up on Piedmont Avenue in the 1960's and my parents had already been eating your food. I grew up eating it and now that I am in California, I miss it a lot. After moving away from Atlanta, I actually once drove a 300 mile round trip just to get some! You are part of my childhood and I will always stop by when I am in the area for those luscious chiliburgers, fries, onion rings, and your fantastic vanilla ice cream with a hard chocolate shell. Thanks for the memories and the quality. Zesto is irreplaceable and cannot be duplicated. It is simply the best. We always went to the Piedmont Road shop across the way from what used to be called Broadview Plaza. Remember the drive in movie place that used to be across the street? It was later made into an Arlans grocery store until they went out. Zesto IS Atlanta to me.
- Terri Lynn Merritts
I grew up eating zestos my father would take us on sat and get the special and go park on loop rd by the airport and watch planes take off and land that was the highlight of the week zestos and airplanes. hearing my fathers stories of zestos growing up he ate at them and played baseball for zestos and now i have taken my son there several times he loves it 3 generations of zestos lovers
- Billy Dilbeck
Nothing beats a Chubby Decker. Nothing. Been enjoying the taste since the 70's when I was a kid. So glad the Piedmont Road location is back doing it right. I make the drive south to Atlanta just to eat there with my wife and kids now. It's become a tradition with us and that's cool since it started with my parents taking us there way back when. Thanks for the food and the memories!
this is my first meal from you guys and i must say this is the best fish sandwich i ever had. that means alot coming from louisiana where seafood is a way of life. i thank my wife for turning me on to it. thank you for the great meal. still licking my fingers!
- kool black
Zestos in Tyrone never fails on the great food. ALMOST everyone is very friendly. Not much else I would ask for!
(Mr. Zesto asks: ALMOST everyone?)
hook yourself up with the hot wings, ask for flats no problemo. nothing gives me my grease fix like a chubby decker basket with zesto's onion rings, yumm-o x 10. a blessing and a curse that they are only 2 blocks from the corner of the block to my house!
WOW! I grew up in Atlanta around Grant Park. Moved to NC haven't had an icecream cone rolled in nuts since I was 12! Can't wait to visit so my kids can try one and know what they are missing. Ate there every weekend, really miss the icecream. Lots of memories!!
Grew up in East Point. Ate there all the time and just about everyone in my family worked there including myself. I miss that one since it was sold and the name changed. Still has awesome country fried steak with fries and loads of gravy.
Bar None. The Best Turkey Burger I have ever eaten.
great,great chilli dogs
Friendly people, great food at a reasonable price, what more can you ask for...
The ladies at the Tyrone,Ga location are the best. I eat here twice a week and on Thursday, I can walk thu the door and they know what I want and it always fixed just right. My hats off to all that work there.

We used to have a Zesto in Bettendorf Iowa back in the fifties. We went there every Sunday after church and any other time we could talk our folks into it. I would give anything to have a store in our town again!!
I was raised in Natchitoches(Nakatish)La. and we had a Zesto fron the 1950s until the early 1970s
and I have been craving the taste ever since.I will have to stop in Atlanta and see if it is still as good as I remember.
- Good Time Charlie
The 1st meal I ate when I moved to Atlanta in '67 was a Zesto hotdog basket. Zesto was our after school,evening and weekend hangout in the early to mid 70's. The Piedmont rd location use to have a jukebox. I would bet that I have had 100's of ice cream cones and 100's of hotdogs from there down through the years. I miss those days.
- Cat Cook
Way to keep tradition alive! If youre ever in Omaha,NE stop by the N 30th street location. Best in town! ~Owner & Operator
I grew up in Decatur. While I'm a fan of the Varsity, the foot long chili dog with slaw and onions is my favorite hot dog. We used to get 4 on a special for under $2.00 years ago. A foot long and a strawberry shake can't be beat!
- Tom Lewis
I love love love Zesto's soft serve...twist perferrably! You just can't get anything better than this stuff, people!
- Aria M.
I lived in Marosgo Apartments just behind Zesto on Piedmont Road, in 1957 and 1958. I was pregnant and craved Hot Fudge Sundays. I would walk there and order a Hot Fudge Sunday with lots of hot fudge and no whipped cream. They would make it for me, I assumed it was because I was pregnant. But I really enjoyed it. I can still taste it now and I'm 70 years old. Thanks Zesto
- Maggie Crews
Very fantastic hotdogs - awesome chili
Your wings are awesome!!! I love the honey bbq ones the best though.
- Carlos R
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!LOVE ZESTO'S WISH THERE WAS ONE IN MCDONOUGH, GA. UNTIL THEN I'LL CONTINUE TO GO ON FRIDAYS TO MORELAND & CONFERDERATE. GREAT PLACE AWESOME FOOD!
Have'nt eaten at Zesto's since I was a kid in the 60's. Forgotten all about them ,till I was in Atlanta and saw one. Had lunch with my family who had never heard of Zesto's. If was great! Can't wait to get back to Atlanta amd eat there again..
Zesto is and has always been my favorite ice cream. My older sister worked for the "queen" and even when that was free I still wouldn't want it the same way I wanted zesto.
- lil Lincoln sunshine
I loved Zestos; Okay, I must confess it's been a while since I have been and I have moved to Covington and there is not one in my area, but back in the day I would go the the one on Candler Rd. I loved all the food, but I so loved the coffee milkshake; there was nothing like it. Like heaven on earth.
- A. Thompson
I have been going to the Zesto in Forest Park since I was a little girl, I'm happy to say it's one of the few places that is as good now as it was then!!!
Zestos rocks. I first had Zestos in South Carolina in 1984. Then, I moved to Fort Wayne, IN and was so happy to have 2 Zestos locations here. Now - my brother lives in Little 5 pointes in Atlanta and there is a Zestos there. Everywhere of importance to me, there is a Zestos. And good thing. Zestos is the BEST. Try a Razzle Chocolate ice cream with Black Raspberry. It is similar in taste to a famous chocolateur flavor here in Fort Wayne - DeBrands Chocolate. Check it out if you like that flavor. But most of the time I just get plain ol'vanilla. Yes, Indiana knows good food too. Especially Zestos.
- Anna from Indiana
Ate there in Forest Park since I was little moved to Gainesville but still have to make the journey twice a year for a footlong the best onion rings in the world and a peach shake wow!
I sure do miss those burgers and chicken snacks.
Grew up around the one on piedmont road. Also worked there 1981/82. What a great place. Good
people. The one on ponce de leon is very satisfying. Service good. It would be great to see one in smyrna georgia
The food at Zesto is great. I ate at the one in Atlanta. Very good food. I also work at Zesto in West Columbia, S.C.
The food was AWESOME! The best burger I've ever had. You guys beat out Five Guys hands down. Oh, and the onion rings... they were the BOMB!!! My daughter said that the ice cream was like fluffy marshmallows in her mouth. Can you tell we really enjoyed the food?
I moved to Atlanta in 2005 down off Highland Ave in VA Highlands with my wonderful girlfriend Katie. Passed up Zesto many, many times opting for other joints. We were on our way home from a night out early morning and finally decided to stop. Boy were we glad we did. Excellent chicken nachos with black beans. Now were addicts!
Growing up in Atlanta during the 50s the best hot dogs were at the Yellow jacket, the yELLOW jACKET HAS LONG BEEN GONE. bUT THE zESTO CHILI DOG IS EVERY BIT WHAT I REMEMBER THE yELLOW jAcket hot dogs to be. GREAT !!
- Jimmy from Atlanta
You're ice cream is AMAZING. Im so glad you guys supply REAL ice cream not that fake stuff that Micky D's and THE QUEEN have. At Zesto, your for real. I went to the QUEEN a few weeks ago and they asked me if I wanted ice dream HA! Don't make me laugh!
Oh my God, your ice cream is the best but hey thats besides the subject what im here to talk about is how i wish you were open later cause every day i want ice cream real late. It makes me want to break stuff when i get hungry for ice cream and realize you aren't open.
- Riley Nesbit
Their ice cream is awesome. We say "Zesto's is Bestos!" I can say I have never had better ice cream anywhere. Keep up the good work. 6/23/07
- Captain Chris
i live in the conyers area.an i remember how good the footlongs were i drove to forest park store to get one. i took my son he had two but when i told him about zestos he replied whats a zestos. what iam getting at is if you open a new store i hope its conyers. thanks keep up the good work
- jerry conner
Zesto has the best turkey burger in town, bar none! The first time I ate one it tasted so good I was worried that it might actually be hamburger because I don't eat beef. But, to my surprise it was just a good old, flame broiled turkey patty. I recommend it with cheese, tater tots and a Heck of a Job Brownie Arctic Swirl, also the best frozen treat in town!!
I feel sorry for the misguided patrons going to the McDonalds next door to the Ponce location. I want to yell at them. Zesto's rules!
We love Zesto!! It brings us good luck for competitions! The one on Ponce is out favorite! We love the ice cream!!!
- Douglasville Cheer Stars
Being from North Decatur Zestos use to be a family treat in the Mid-70's until this very day. I live in Ewa Beach Hawaii now and wish we had a Zestos in the island of O'ahu. I think the local Hawaians would really embrace the good chow you guys make at Zestos. Mahalo
- Jerome Carthan(SUBCOOK)
I just had the Clam Roll and it was so awesome! I also love the cole slaw.
Worlds best COFFEE BANANA SHAKE! When I lived at Peachtree/W. Peachtree split, I had one every morning. Delicious.
I MISS YOU ZESTO!!!
I love Zesto. I lived in Chattanooga Tn, and on my way to Atlanta I alway stop first at Zesto.
Its the best!
i visited the forest park store. 10/06. I had the breakfast special, there was a black lady that waited on me. she was very polite and fast. the cooks were limited but my food was on time. I had a waffle and eggs and a piece of sausage.So after that visit, I visited agian and I got the same service. WOW, GETTING SERVICE LIKE THAT EARLY IN THE MORNING. Makes you feel kinda special. ya know. thanks yall
I love the chicken baskets. Simply Superb!!!!!!
An Atlanta tradition and delicious food! Great wings and awsome burgers, crinkle fries and ICE CREAM! Been a Zesto's customer for 35 years!
Love it... always have. Food is cooked to order which means it's always fresh and hot. Ice cream is so refreshing and good all the time. No complaints from me. Keep it coming ZESTO, you make the south HOT.
- Lori (Fresh Georgia Peach)
What would my life have been like without Zesto? I grew up just down the street from the old Lakewood Ave location in Atlanta, and I can remember MANY a Friday night where we feasted on Footlong Baskets, Chubby Deckers, and milkshakes. Eventually we moved out of Atlanta, and at some point that location closed. But I never forgot how much I loved the food. These days, any time I am in the Forest Park area I make it a point to indulge in 2 footlong chili dogs with ketchup and fries. Have tried the Burrito Bros. location in Tyrone and it is good, but there is NO substitute for the original Zesto. Sure wish you guys would expand to the Newnan area. Regardless, thanks for the great food for all of these years from a lifelong fan.
The foot long was a little Small...:)
Zesto - I love your corndogs! Took down almost a dozen the last time I was there!!! emily
- Emily Tyson
when i was a kid in the 60's in new orleans,la. we had a zesto around the corner from my house and every evening we would all go and meet at the zesto to eat burgers,fries, banana splits and whatever else we could eat. just recently i had the opportunity to come to atlanta and visit with a good friend of mine and when she brought me to eat at the zesto on ponce de leon in atlanta, WOW, i just had a fit!!!!!! i truly remember those gooooood ole days at the zesto around the corner. PLeasssssse bring one back to new orleans, louisiana again. thanks for the memories.
- julie young
Zesto's in Buckhead was our school hangout during the 60's. What memories your website brings back. Still have dreams about those yummy footlong chili dogs.
I only lived in Decatur for 1 year, but I ate at the Zesto on Ponce De Leon almost every Tuesday. They had the BEST footlongs ever. Have you considered opening a Zesto in Birmingham, AL?
zesto has the BEST dam wings in the south
sac,ca needs to know...
keep puttin it down like dat!!!!!!!!!
- fat dave
I use to work at Zesto in the 60's back in my hometown Mitchell South Dakota. Someone mentions Zesto I can still taste the footlongs and smell that wonderful aroma!
I work at a Zesto on Riverside in Evansville, In. I'm 35 & have been eating there my whole life! We have another Zesto here in town but its run by a different owner. Our owners are the best! They even give us T-shirts with Zesto on the front & the building on the back. They are so cool, everybody wants one! We have a similar menu, but I can't wait to come down & try yours. I really love your website! I had no idea there were so many Zesto's-but still not enough! I hope Zesto goes on forever!
Yeah, the language spoken at Confederate is indeed Greek. That cute brunette I was refering to is Greek, also. I think she's the owner's daughter. You've got to try the icecream.
- Zesto Freak
I remember going to the Zestos on Peachtree across from the Brookwood Train Station. I would go to the AJCC and then come get a Nut Brown Crown with butterscotch dip. Why don't you have butterscotch anymore?
Love that old school atmosphere and the chilli dogs and fries...Great Fish fillets and brownie sundaes to boot! Nothin like stopping at Zesto's on Ponce after church on Sunday (TBC on Boulevard)
the language at confederate is known as ebonics (Editor's note: It's actually Greek)
- Dave Chapelle
i think the nut brown crown has some kind of drug in it..where can i get some..
What language are those people speaking at Confederate? It doesn't sound like Spanish.
- Hannah Barbra
I love Zesto! Each one is unique, and they are all in the city too! Stay in town and please don't move to "metro Atlanta!" The fish sandwich is the best!
PLEASE OPEN A STORE IN WEST COBB.
I've been eating at the Zesto on Moreland and Confederate Avenue for 6 years. The footlong slaw dogs, onion rings and NBCs are my absolute favorite. Their icecream is THE BEST, especially when the cute brunette behind the counter makes it!
- Zesto Freak
Never been to this Zesto...but I have been to the one in Mitchell, South Dakota!! What a great place! I am sure they are similiar.
I LOVE your burgers! when i went to Zesto i wanted something that was not really on the menu but they still gave it too me! Zesto rocks!
This is the best food in town!!!
Zesto's has the best food and great customer service. Heads up to the hard working employees.YOU ROCK!!!!!
Man i tell you my sister started going to the former zesto's at the corner of candler rd. and glenwood dr. got me started. It used to be the spot. The Chubby Decker w/bacon basket w/tater tots will get you hooked trust me!! The ice cream is great as usual. Try a peach/fruit punch mix drink you'll be surprised.
- Sleepy J
I remember back in 1968 and 69 when I was a freshman in college. I would visit my boyfriend at Tech and we would get Zesto's chicken on Sundays when we were studying in the park. I've never had any chicken since that was that good. Yum!
When I was a little girl, I never asked for McDonalds. It was always ZESTO's!!! After all these years, I still crave a chicken snack any time of the day. I could never work there... I'd get so fat.
- Elisabeth G.
Zesto is yummy to my tummy!
- Randy Crist
I'm pretty sure the banana shake is the best thing I have ever had in my life. If we get to pick our own heaven, mine will be filled with all the Zesto banana shakes I want!
Best Colen clenzen I ever had!
- Steve W.
Chicken Gizzards ROCK! Long live the gizzard! The tastiest, best part of the chicken!
"BURRITO BROTHERS" BEST FISH BURRITOS AND IS CLOSE FROM MY APARTMENT..COOL ..GOOD SERVICE ALL THE TIME THANKS DENNIS AND EDGAR.....
I lived in Atlanta for 12 years in the 80's and 90's. I recently moved from Baltimore to San Francisco. I have lived in some great cities and tasted some amazing food, but I still get a craving for ZESTO'S delicious hot dogs, thick shakes and onion rings. Long Live Zesto's!
- Kate Dana (Detwiler)
LOVE LOVE LOVE Zesto's Always will be my Favorite, just wish they were closer to a MARTA Rail Station Like they used too..(Frown)
