If you want atmosphere and ambiance, forget this place. The BBQ food, however, is ouitstanding and worth a return visit. We were very satisfied. Jim Hakes

Food was OK, my husband like the bbq beans. I wanted to like the mac&cheese but it was luke warm. The meats were under seasoned except for the brisket. The reason I wouldn't recommend was because of the owner lamenting that she participated in Groupon. She was grousing to a customer/friend/fellow proprietor in full earshot of customers that she didn't make enough off the Groupons to make it worth her while, still had 130 unused a day before expiration. Very unprofessional and rude. I mentioned to her we had moved from Memphis and looking for good bbq. Her brisket was good, but not good enough to return and support her poor attitude. I'll keep looking for my favorite bbq joint.

Their slow smoked BBQ is very good, and you put your own BBQ sauce on which is always the way to go IMO.

I always would choose to support local business over franchise. I think by using groupon was wise for you. I am in Medina, and probably would have never discovered your restaurant.

I ordered the rib platter and the sampler platter for takeout. They gave me regular fries instead of the waffle fries I had ordered, which I did not think of until I got home. I loved the Apple Bourbon barbecue sauce, but the ribs themselves were just average, and, I think, could have used a couple more hours smoking. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for these meals.

When I had the 1/2 slab platter, the ribs were dried out like they were heated 1 time too many. For my sides I had the jambalaya & the fresh vegetable for the day. The green beans had no flavor or seasoning & tasted like they were heated up straight out of the freezer.

From Our Editors

Once a ramshackle ice-cream store with a loyal Akron following, today Zack's Fire and Ice serves barbecue along with its cones with help from new owner and former pastor Randy Stewart and his wife, Kathy. The Stewarts have lived in the Southwest and up and down the East Coast, so rather than adhere strictly to any one regional barbecue style, they synthesize their favorite elements from a number of traditions to create an eatery with the welcoming spirit of a backyard cookout. The kitchen slow smokes brisket, ribs, pork, and turkey breast and slathers them with sauces such as honey and apple bourbon. Frozen treats such as sorbet and frozen yogurt stay chilly at the ice-cream counter alongside hard-packed ice cream in flavors such as pumpkin pecan, oatmeal cookie, and Superman, designed to freeze enemies’ brains faster than a speeding bullet.
