BURGER

We always make it to Zipper's at least once on our trips (10+years) and go here for a very good Hamburger and to greet Lalo, our friend who has been a waiter there forever.... A little crude atmosphere and cool in the evening, but sea side seating and usually live music makes for an enjoyable time... read more

A bit pricey. Used to be really reasonable. Nice location on the beach. It is a nice place to sit and relax but I didn't find the food that great and was surprised at the tab at the end of it all.

We liked this place so much we had lunch here twice during our vacation. This is one of those "shack" looking beach bars. The food was delicious. To accommodate my food allergies, they fixed me grilled sea bass (very tender and not overcooked) and slices of avocado. The sea bass was as good as in any fine dining restaurant. The... More

Fodor's rates this as a fun stop with excellent burgers. It's on the beach, open air, you are harrassed by local sales folks from the beach and the food was marginal. Enormous burger. Took us a bit to find the place as its tucked off the main road from San Jose to Cabo. Surfers appear to frequent the place -... More

This place is frequented by mostly American and Canadian ex pats but the food is only average. Normally this would make me not recommend it BUT this weird eatery still has to be seen and tried. The restaurant is so close to the water it is amazing. Getting to this place is a rodeo but that is part of the... More

We stayed within walking distance so we ended up eating here a few times. The convenience was nice but the food and drink was really quite good. Huge place with plenty of tables located on the beach. Some tables are in the sand which I love. When I'm on vacation I like putting my feet in the sand every chance... More

Gorgeous view, right on the sand, and broad menu. The best and biggest shrimp cocktail I've ever had - truly a meal. Excellent burger, taquitos and enchiladas too. Great service, old family-owned restaurant. Tony and Sylvia are the best!
