We were staying at the Barceló but had heard Zippers was a great place. We walked a long way from the Barceló on the beach to get there but it was well worth it. Atmosphere was great. The drinks were great and well priced. There was live music for us to enjoy and it wasn't overcrowded or had noisy locals.... More

My husband and I were on the beach watching our son surf (great beach to surf at, by the way). Thought we'd pop in for a beer and noticed the special was beer battered shrimp. Asked if we could just get the shrimp, no extras--"No problem". Mmmm, yum, yum! We really weren't even hungry, but scarfed down the entire order... More

Always had a great time at Zippers. So glad to see them back after OdIle. Very kid friendly and the food is great comfort food. Not high end but satisfying in that fabulous seaside setting.

As authentic as you can get, this place is a time warp to Los Cabos in 1990. And just as it was back then, the quality of stuff is OK. The people and staff are pretty attentive, and will accommodate as much as they can. There is a playground for kids and a great view of the surf at Zipper's... More

I go to Zipper's Restaurant every time I go to San Jose Del Cabo. The location is perfect being on the beach, the menu selection varied, the prices very reasonable, the food excellent and the servers friendly and attentive. It is also a great place to watch sports if you are into that sort of thing. My favorites are the... More

We had great local food and friendly service. There was live music and dancing as the evening went along. A nice place to eat and end with a walk on the beach.

Zippers will always be so convenient for beach walkers on this Sea of Cortez side---and they have done a magnificent recovery after the Hurricane. However, the entire location, is looking a little tired. This time We had a light lunch, after our margs and beers. Patio area was semi-full but you could sense people were anxious. Service was slow, dis-organized.... More

We Love Zippers! Great open air patio tables with a killer view of San Jose del Cabo. The burgers were excellent and the deep fried Jalapenos are a must!

My group of 6 came in at 1pm for lunch. We ordered appetizers as well as lunch, as we were extremely hungry. We did not get any food until 2:30! We stopped our server several times, and she said the kitchen was backed up. It was clear the order was forgotten, however, as people who were seated after us were... More
