Zippy's is quite the place. It combines a drive thru, and fast food restaurant, a bakery and a sit down restaurant all in one. Space is definitely not a problem...unless you consider the parking lot is packed. But the restaurant itself is extra amazing! The food was home style, the service was excellent and the price was right. All wonderful... More

My son ordered Oxtail soup because he's heard of how much the Hawaiian locals love it and he was not disappointed either for the soup was truly excellent especially since Zippy's is akin to Denny's on the mainland, meaning, good food, less expensive but don't expect anything better. Not at Zyppy's though for it was budget friendly and the food?... More

It's a Zippys restaurant so you know what you are getting. The food was good. The restaurant was clean. The staff was friendly. Every time we travel to Oahu we go here at least once or twice. Good times.

A friend recommended Zippy's, so we had to try it. While famous for it's chili (which my husband had, and loved), I went for the chicken katsu curry. My daughter had the locos mocos, a beef and rice dish topped with an egg. The food was fast and delicious!

Nothing special about this restaurant. The food is not that great and neither is service. I was very disappointed. I ordered a cheeseburger and it literally came with just meat and cheese no lettuce no nothing and to top it off the meat was dry. I'm not sure if the other items on the menu are like that but I...

Zippy's restaurant chain is where the locals go to "grind" (eat) with friends and family. You can order at the fast food counter or be served in their restaurant. The menus at all of the Zippy's are the same. Our number one favorite Zippy's is the Nimitz branch. The staff at Nimitz is why we choose to drive across town... More

So we took the family here tonight because everyone seems to rave about this place. I would describe our service in general as very poor. We waited to be seated for 10 minutes before anyone even noticed us and when someone did it, it was to say I will be right with you and we waited for another 10 minutes.... More

Absolutely mouthwatering Malasadas! The best! I had never had one even though it was my second visit to Honolulu. I had read about them and then found myself stuck, waiting for a taxi when I spotted Zippy's. We had to go check it out and couldn't eat our Malasadas fast enough. Better than any doughnut!!

Stopped in here after catching a movie at the Regal Dole as we had read reviews that it compared to Anna Miller's. Not even close. The food and service were good, but not outstanding. We'd take Anna Miller's over Zippy's next time

One of our favorite places to eat in Honolulu. This is an inexpensive restaurant that offers both sit down service and a fast-food like option. The food is the same at either side of the location. The grilled salmon is very good as is the mahi-mahi. Each Zippy's location has a Napoleon's Bakery. Be sure to take home some apple... More
