You enter the restaurant, order at the counter, pick up your food when it's ready, then sit down at one of the tables. I went on a weekday afternoon and saw that less than half of the people there were actively eating their food. Most had already eaten and were studying or just hanging out and chatting. I didn't have... More

I keep coming back for their Korean Fried Chicken. It's just amazing! I also love the Zip Pac but it's a bit too heavy for me. I can't finish it alone. The great thing about this place is that they're open 24/7 so for late dinners or early breakfast, this is your place.

You can't go wrong with choosing Zippy's for breakfast. We ate at two different locations and the breakfast was tasty and prompt. In addition Zippy's has a bakery on site that make for a great take-out of pastries and more.

Zippy’s McCully is where the restaurant chain started on October 17, 1966. The first of many locations, Zippy’s McCully offers a fast food counter, a dining room and freshly baked goods from Napoleon’s Bakery. The quintessential Zippy’s, it also has been said that President Obama frequented this location when growing up in Hawaii. Do try something from the bakery, and... More

Did the chef leave the shells in my omelet for extra flavor - is that his secret ingredient? Because I sure didn't ask for the extra crunch that came with my Zippy's Omelet. Billed as their house special, what a let down…egg shells, barely any portugese sausage and the cheese wasn't even melted. And lucky me, the wheat toast that... More

I used to go to Zippy's quite often---but they have gone WAY down hill (many restaurants are cutting down quality to avoid raising prices)---they used to give you all dark meat turkey if you asked for it, but not anymore,---the white meat is always so dry!!! all the food seems to be bad now, and i'm not the only one...

The service at Zippy's is very good, and the food is really delicious. The choice of food is pretty big. And compared to the price is this a wonderful restaurant. We are "locals" and we go here often. And don't forget to order as dessert an "Apple Napple"... it's mouthwatering!!!

We had heard rave reviews about Zippy's, but missed what all the hype was about during our visit. Perhaps, one of the other locations is better? You will have to be the judge of that because we didn't explore them.
