Fun place, good crowd and good food

This is a fun, relaxed, beach bar, with pretty good food, good drinks and very good service. It is cleaning up after last fall's hurricane and is a fun place to visit. The food is just fine, and reasonable. Quesadillas are great. The chicken taco app was very good. Fun to watch the surfers, and you... read more

This is not a direct review against Zippers the resturant---this is about the resort that is currently under construction. We did a timeshare presentation and were promised things that were not delivered then the clowns treated us as if we had not done them a favor. We gave them pesos up front because they described their offerings as a super... More

Zipper's was the place 15 years ago, full of surfers and tourists an locals. The only thing worth seeing now is the view. Food is just okay, but there are many better options around town. Visit in the afternoon for a marg and appetizers, then move on!

Zippers was sporting a new look this year. Hurricane did a number on it. Great restaurant , the ocean is maybe, 10 yards away. Great food.even American offerings. Live music (usually a one man band) one of its main attractions is watching the surfers while dining. Extra treat this year was , LARGE SWELLS.the local food is absolutely delicious. A... More

Lots of reviews said to be sure and go here, but I was not impressed. Maybe its not fully back after the hurricane, but its just a sandy beach bar. Nothing special other than the view, I guess. Food was just OK. I feel as if they overcharged us for our tequila shots. But they were nice to call us... More

This place is the first place my brother goes to every time he comes for a visit, the service is great the view even better and the food very good. I love the shrimp ceviche, it is filling and very fresh! My Grandson loves the rib platter, very very good!

Zippers had it all! Great food! Great staff! Amazing views! &... Strong drinks! We went 2 times on our vacation and wish it would have been more! Between our group of 10 we had almost everything on the menu and didn't find one thing we didn't love. Funny but I think the cheeseburger was the best I have ever had!... More

Ribs are the best.....finger licking good. Little bit off the beaten path but we'll worth the hunt. Maybe take a cab on first trip there. Plan on going once more before end of our trip to Cabo

This place is really cool to watch the surfers out on the waves. The food was good and what you would normally expect for this kind of place. There is a place right there that can give you surf lessons... great waves...
