We didn't get her name but had the best waitress EVER...friendly, attentive, accommodating older Japanese lady was quite the jokester which was a pleasant treat to our challenging morning... food always great and the wine was awesome too.

Quickly seated, good food, super service...reasonably price-what else could you ask for? Great atmosphere, air conditioning was good, overall a great deal! Nice way to spend Friday night with family.

First time to Zippy's. Went for Lunch, was very good. They serve, breakfast, lunch & dinner at all times. I had the Teriyaki beef and Korean chicken. Service was quick, even though quite busy on Sunday lunchtime.

Stopped in on a weekday afternoon with my daughter. Half the restaurant was empty so only 1 section was being used. After a couple of waitresses seemed to discuss which one would seat us, we were taken to the far corner and seated in a booth.
